GDO Lights

Posted by rick_2008 (My Page) on

The lights on my GDO should light when I enter the garage through the garage door but they don't, but I can turn them on from the push button.
Also, both bulbs are new but only one bulb lights.
I have a Craftsman GDO. Any ideas?

RE: GDO Lights

The feature of the light coming on when you walk through the door is toggled by holding the light button on the wall control in for 10 seconds. Some of the newer bulbs do not make contact in the light socket. Try changing the 2 bulbs around to see if this may be the problem. You can also pull out on the center contact in the socket if you disconnect the power first.
