Sears Garage door opener closing problems

jj-walshFebruary 6, 2008

I have 2ea sears 1/2 HP, model#139.53627SRT units. Both units will not close without holding the wall button down.

They will move briefly and stop when closing using the remotes. The sensors are clean and aligned. There is no problem opening using the remotes or wall button. Only when closing.

Also, the light does not function any more on one unit.

They are about 14 years old...

Any recommendations?

If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses or you can hear the relay click 10 times then you have sensor problems.

Are all four sensor led's lit and not flcikering, does the problem happen at night too?
