RE: garage door only goes down

model 139.53673srt1. I didn't write down when we installed it but I think it's about 8 years old

RE: garage door only goes down

check the brown wire on the down contact on the limit switch assembly, it may be loose. Otherwise the contact may be slightly off.

Actually your opener is about 14 years old, I am going with the manual that I have for this opener,
