Make sure it's on level ground as there is a built in switch which inhibits operation. It doesn't take much tilt to throw it off, i.e. inclined driveways etc.. Make sure ALL switches are in proper position before pulling the cord and, oh yeah...make sure there's oil in it or it won't start!

Did you put oil in it?

Tried to reprogram security code for outdoor key pad on 1/2hp craftsman garage door opener according to instructions online, pressed learn button- put in new 4 digit code-held enter. Lights did not flash...

Seems you've done everything right. Press and immediately release the smart/learn button and then walk over and key in a 4 digit code and press enter. If you are sure the battery in the keypad is good then I think your keypad is on the fritz or the wrong one for that opener.

Craftsman 1/3 hp garage door opener I bought a new one - my father installed it and the door will open half way - that is it.. then when you go to close it - it closes and then opens half way...

I hate to say this but it sounds like your father did not follow the instructions when he installed the opener. Try following these instructions.

Loosen the chain enough so that you can remove it from the sprocket above the motor unit. With the door closed run the motor until the sprocket turns clockwise and stops. With everything attached replace and tighten the chain. Some adjusting of the up and down limits will probably be required.

I have a craftsman 5600 generator and two of the plugins do not work

Hey there - I just bought mine and I had the same problem and I JUST fixed it! Here was my problem...perhaps it is the same. The two bottom plugs didn't work...the top two worked fine. What I did was unsrew the gas tank and propped it up with a 2x4 in order to give me more room. Then I unscrewed the black electric box that is behind the outlets. There are 5 wires that connect to the generator. Black, Gray, Blue, Green and RED. I noticed the RED wire (upper right) was not seated correctly and then when I seated it ... everything worked great. Soooo....I got a very small screw driver and scrapped the inside of the "connector" which had this microscopic piece of plastic preventing the wire to fit into the connector snugly. I screwed everything back on and it is working wonderfully. Let me know if this helps or if I can clarify anything or you. Brian
