Garage door closes automatically...

balaApril 13, 2006

When I left my garage open, after some time (may be 10 or 15 mins), if there is no activity (moving in or out of the garage), the door closes automatically.

How do I stop that functinality?. My garage is a Sears Craftsman 1/2 HP, mfr date of 04/96.

That is not a normal function of your opener. I would remove the white with red tracer wire from terminal 1 and the white wire from the wall button that is attached to terminal 2. Leave the other wires connected. This will eliminate the possibility of a bad wall button or shorted wiring to the motor unit. Make sure you don't have any unused remotes stored away somewhere. If you do remove the batteries.
