FIXED Craftsman Garage Door Opener

kenny47February 21, 2007

I replaced the stripped gears on my Craftsman Garage door opener. My opener would not work. It rotated in 1 direction for 2 seconds, reversed for 2 seconds and stopped. The chain was not connected and the limiters never hit the stops. I removed the PLASTIC CAP on the shaft for the RPM Sensor. I cut it FLUSH with the Lock-ring so it would engage further. Re-installed it and now it works perfect. My Force adjustments are at the lowest level, and there are no more problems. Kenny

Congrats on your fix. I have never had to cut or trim the interrupter cup. I think you have a problem with the motor shaft.

Again congrats. I agree you must have a shaft problem, I too have never had to cut an interuptor cup.
