Craftsman Garage Door - Wire Instructions?

pj94zAugust 12, 2006

I have a 10 yr old 1/2 hp sears craftsaman garage door opener. A few days ago, Lightning hit the house and the unit lost power.

So, I purchased a new unit today from Sears and I am in the process of installing the new one.

The new one I purchased seems to be a different model since it only comes with 2 remotes as my previous one had 4 (a wall mount switch and outside keypad, plus 2 remotes)

However, the manual I got with the new unit does not tell me where to hook up all the wires I have coming from the cieling.

I have 3 wires coming from cieling.. each of them splits off into several different colors:

one is white with blue marks

one is white with orange marks

one is blue solid

Something like that.. but the new unit I purchased only comes with 2 remotes and not the 4 remote system that came with my previous one... I'm assuming that's why there are no wiring instructions.

So, can anyone point to which wire goes where??

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I suggest you follow the installation instructions that came with your new opener. The color code of the wires coming from your ceiling are not common to Craftsman openers.
