Replacing springs can be very dangerous. I suggest you call someone from a garage door company to do that for you.

UNPLUG THE UNIT AND WAIT 5 MIN.
WHEN YOU PLUG IT BACK IN CLAER ALL CODES BY HOLDING DOWN THE PROGRAM BUTTON FOR 20 SECONDS.
NOW TRY TO PROGRAM EACH REMOTE AND KEYPAD - IF THERE IS STILL A PROBLEM CHANGE THE BATTERIES AND REPEAT THIS PROCEDURE.

I HOPE THIS HELPS

The little button with a padlock on the wall control is a "vacation" lockout feature that disables the remotes. There should be a small LED on the wall control that is always on steady. When the padlock button is pressed and released the LED should be constantly blinking (indicating the vacation lockout mode is active) and your remotes should be disabled. The wall control will still operate the door. Pushing the padlock button again should make the LED stop blinking and restore the door to normal operation.

Your downforce adjustment may be set too high causing it to auto reverse when it touches down. Here is a link to a page giving different reasons why the door will not stay closed. The problems are highlighted in blue. Hope this helps.

It can be mounted to a ceiling rafter, but make sure there is room above to allow for the trolley to travel freely. If there is a clearance issue, there are top roller adapters called "quick turn brackets that make the top of the door turn faster and lower. Most likely available from your local garage door company.

Sounds like a bad motor.

Sears Craftsman... | Answered on Apr 15, 2015


Make sure that the battery in the remote is good. If it has gone bad, often the door opener has to be reprogrammed to accept the signal of the remote. Use your manual to get the directions for this procedure.

And if the latter does not do it, either the remote unit is bogus or the receiver circuits on your opener are not working.

I don't trust batteries even when they are new. Try taking the battery out of the remote that is working and install it in the remote that isn't. If that doesn't work you need to purchase a new remote.

You probably have an eletrical device that is messing with frequency. Make sure that everything is off inside garage.

1. disconnect the door from the chain. 2. inspect the door again, try oiling the rollers and joints. It is the chain that lifts the door. Try manually lifting the door. If it still does not lift open, it is the door and not the Opener unit. 3. Although you don't see kinks, look for any obstructions eg. the track. 4. Make sure the track has not lossened out at any point. 5 If you can lift the door,. connect with the chain. Goog luck. Basically I think it is the door mechanism that has some how misalligned.

You probably have a stripped gear. Take the cover off the opener and the bottom will be filled with white shavings and the gear will be missing teeth. You can repair with a liftmaster gear and sprocket kit.

Your manual button is bad.

No light at all on your opener? Zero none on your sensors or on your wall control? What about on the opener it self do you have lights in it? it really can only be two things I can think of. with otu seeing it One guy said check you wires. I would say tahts a great place to start I would unplug the wall control wires. Sometimes not too much with newer openers but if they got a staple in the wire it can cause a dead short. When you unplug the wire from the open it's self. Try it. If that does not work try plugging in something to the plug where the open is at. And make sure its not on a switch. Oh one last thing when you use it remote or wall control do it make any sound at all?
