Craftsman 1/2 HP -Garage Door Problem
I am having a strange problem with my Craftsman 1/2 HP garage door opener. When it is shady or dark it works just fine, both from the wall mounted control and my remotes. However if there is bright sunlight shining into the garage, the door will not close. It just moves a few inches and retracts. Only way to close it is by holding the button on the wall mounted unit till the door shuts completely.
I tried covering the sensors but that does not work.
Does anyone else have a similar problem. Is it normal for the sensors not to work in bright light ? Is there a cure ?
Any help would be appreciated.
