Garage Door Opener Problem

lookingforhelp_12October 24, 2008

I have a Craftsman 1/2 HP garage door opener. Model # 139.18876 year 1996

A while back the power went out on our street. When the power came back on the opener no longer workered. When I press the button, al I get is 4 loud clicks and the curcuit board blinks 5 times in series.

Any suggestions?

If that is the LED flashing 5 times it is the code for a RPM sensor or motor overload. Sounds more to me like a bad logic board though.

Sounds like your logic board might be going on the fritz (power surege??). If you think you might want to replace it yourself, I can tell you where NOT to buy it. I recently bought one from Ontario Supply in New York from their web site for $60. Unfortunately, it has turned out to be defective and they won't refund my purchase price even though I sent the defective unit back at my own cost. So, don't buy from them, they don't deal fairly in my opinion. I think you're best off just calling a local repair service and let them replace the board. If you replace the board yourself and it does not work, you're just going to end up calling a repair service anyway. Ontario Supply operates under the following web sites:


In my opinion, you should avoid this company
