garage opener is dead ????

vincenzo985December 13, 2006

Hello. I have a craftsman 1/2 hp garage door opener. The model # is 41A5021-3B. It has power to it but does not open, light up or make a sound when I push any buttons on the remotes or the key pad. Can anyone suggest some ways of testing it??? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I would pull off the cover and check the start capacitor. It should be mounted up by the motor housing with four wires plugged into it. See if there is an odor or some ooozing coming out of it. It sounds like it may be bad.
