Photo eye does not turn opener lights on
I have two of the same Sears 1/2 HP openers and they work great. Both open and close correctly and if the photo eye is triggered, it will stop the door from closing/opening. The controllers work fine as well and the opener lights work when I select 'Lights' on the controls.
The issue I have is that after two years of operation, both doors stopped turning on the opener light when the photo eye is triggered. The photo eyes are on and lined up. The light switch on the controller is off.
The scenario is when the door is open, lights are off, and I walk into the garage from the outside. When new, the opener lights would turn on due to the photo eyes detecting entry. This no longer works.
