Craftsman Garage Opener works sporadically
I have a 17-yr old Craftsman opener, model #139.53627SRT. The remote works in the garage, but won't close the door from just outside in the driveway when I leave. However, it always opens the door from the street when I return. Key pad on outside works sporadically...usually not when car remote doesn't work. Hard-wired touch pad inside by house entry always works. Nothing is blocking sensors. Occasionally the remote will work for a day, then not for weeks. All batteries have been replaced. My repairman wants to replace the sensor eyes and their wires, but another says it's the receiver board. Before I buy one online (I need to save the $$$), I need to know what the problem is.
