Length of Time Opener Light Stays On

jaysgardenAugust 13, 2010

Recently bought a house with a Craftsman 1/2 HP Garage Door Opener(GDO) model 139.53662SRT2. Manufacture date is 1997. The wall control is a Craftsman Premium Controle Console(with 3 buttons:Light, Lock & open button with the green LED light)

I'd like to know if there is a way to adjust the length of time the GDO light stays on.

I have searched and found the following on this site:

"It can only be done with the premium, 3 function wall switch. The 4.5 minute light timer can be changed to, 1.5, 2.5, or 3.5 minute intervals. Press and hold the Lock Button for about 10 seconds and the green light on the wall switch will flash once. A single blink will indicate the timer is reset to 1.5 minutes. Repeat the procedure and the light will blink twice, indicating it's set for 2.5 minutes. Repeat again for 3.5 minutes etc. etc. etc. up to a maximum of 4 blinks for the factory setting of 4.5 minutes."

These instructions are found on August 5, 2005 at: http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/repair/msg0415415521076.html

I tried theses directions with my control console and they do not work. Further searching I found a manual with these instructions but the instructions applied for the Craftsman Motion Detecting Controle Console as pictured here: http://www.craftsman.com/shc/s/p_10155_12602_00953939000P

Scroll down 1/2 and there is a pdf of the instruction manual and on page 31, the above instructions are similarily listed.

So my question is: is there a way to adjust the length of time with the model I have or is it too old? here is a picture of the control console I have: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/showPart.pd?partNumber=53687&productGroupId=0009&supplierId=009&pathTaken=partSearch&blt=14

Your opener is factory set for approximately 4½ minutes and is not adjustable.

Thanks Don...thats what I was beginning to think. Is it non-adjustable because of its age?
