garage door opener

mapesiiJuly 20, 2006

My mom has a craftsman garage door opener model#139.53635srt. The bearings in the gear and sprocket assy. went bad. I installed a new assy.. However I seem to have an adjustment problem I think. I can get the door to come up but I cannot get it to go down. When I try to get it to go down I think it makes a clicking noise then the motor just buzzes

Is the trolley (the thing the door and the chain is attached to) jammed against the bolt in front of the motor unit. If so, remove the bolt, turn the 'up limit' on the side of the unit about 3 turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. If it operates okay then replace the bolt.

Thanks for the suggestion but it didn't seem to help. I noticed that the l.e.d.'s on the safety sensors down by the floor of the door are not lit. I will try checking for voltage at the sensors. If ther is does this mean the sensors are misaligned or faulty. If no voltage then maybe a board issue?

If the small light is not lit on both of them check the wiring to the motor unit. If one is lit and the other is not make sure they are pointed directly at one another.
