Electronic Garage Door Opener

2 posts in this topic

Anyone have experience repairing a Sears Residential Garage Door Opener? Sears Model 139-53635SRT

Door will not open from any buttons. Power is present at unit, since light will go on when buttons are hit, though the motor will not run at all. Light will go on for usual time before going off. If buttons to open are hit for short time, the light will flicker like there is something blocking the door from operating. If button is held down for 5 seconds, the light will remain on for the usual time before going off. Any suggestions?

check the trobleshooting section of your owners manual,this will describe how to perform a test sequence as it may be that one of the periferal sensors has a problem- door travel,or door path obstruction sensors-most have 2 sensors on the door track,which MUST have a clear path between them,otherwise it is seen as an obstruction in the door travel and is disabled.
