Craftsman Garage Door Opener

rajubehFebruary 9, 2009

I have a 1/2HP Craftsman garage door opener. When I first installed it, the two electric bulbs kept burning out. So I discontinued using one of the bulbs, and it seemed to last for quite a while that way. However, lately the one bulb keeps burning out as soon as I change it. It doesn't make any difference which side I have it on. I was told to buy a heavy duty bulb for garage doors which I did. It went down one time and then blew the bulb out. Any suggestions please would be greatly appreciated.

One thing you can try is tightening up the bulbs by pulling up or out on the center contact in the socket. Use a small screwdriver and be sure to unplug the unit first.
