I just moved in to new house I having difficulty with my garage door opener. If i push switch once it open the door normally. I assume it works perfectly but when i try to close the door I have to push the button until door close completely other wise it stop and reverse it's direction. Motor is working fine. It looks like to me that logic broad is bad. Can any body assist me please.

Craft man Model 139-53970SRT

Check the sensors on each side of the garage door. They must be pointed at each other. They both have a small light that is lit when they are aligned correctly.

I also had a similar problem with my Sears Craftsman garage door opener. While Sears said the part may be covered by warranty, it would cost $65 for them to get it done. I am considering filing a class action lawsuit against Sears. If you would like more information on joining the class, please email a summary of your experience with Sears and/or the garage door opener, along with your contact information: name, tele. no., e-mail address. Thanks, Mitchell Rait.

When you check the continuity on the receiving sensor (unplugged) it shows that it is a closed circuit. How can one check to see if is good or not? Light does not work on receiving sensor.

After reading your answers about checking the line up of sensors, I will do that again. Our model no is 139.53635SRT. Thanks
