Sears Mod#:139.53413

scottthebuilderAugust 7, 2007

My customer has the Sears Craftsman Model No. 139.53413 garage door opener. All of a sudden it quit working. They called me. What happens is when you push the button it opens about 3-4 inches and stops. Push the button again and it closes. But sometimes the motor keeps running and you have to hit the button again to stop it. Right now it is in the mode of keeping running. I tried a few things. No luck. Any ideas?

Remove the cover and look at the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor. Chances are pretty good it is stripped. The part number is 41A2817 and is available at Sears or any local door opener company. It should come with instructions. This is also a good time to check the door springs and the balance of the garage door.
