Broken Garage Door Opener-Sears Craftsman

brokengaragedoorguyDecember 1, 2007


I have an automatic garage door opener that has been stuck in the "UP" position for a couple of months now. The traveler(?) is jammed against a bolt. (I think the bolt is there to protect the unit from going too far up and around the sprocket.) I have a twin unit on the other door that works fine.

Details-- Part# 41A4315-6, made 3/93

Model# 139.53627SRT

What can I do to get the opener to reverse direction?

Is it even worth it to fix?

I can do basic repairs, but nothing too compex/difficult.

Any pointers or info would be appreciated.

Remove the bolt and you should get the door to close. Once closed locate the 'up limit' control on the side of the motor unit. Using a small screwdriver turn this control 3 or 4 turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the side of the cover. Replace the bolt and you should be good to go.
