garage door opener

I have a 10 year old sears 1/2 garage opener- works great but for the last 4 years the light that goes on every time you break the plain has not worked. It comes on when the door opens then goes out after the required time. But it use to come on whenever you went past the actual opening. Other then that it works great thats the reason why I never tried to improved it. Any ideas

RE: garage door opener

To have your lights come on automatically when you walk into an open garage you must START with the lights ON.

To turn the feature on, turn the lights on manually with the wall switch, then press and hold the LIGHT button for about 10 seconds until the motor unit light bulbs flash. Now, if the light bulbs are on, manually turn them out and then walk out through the open door. The light bulbs should come on.

To disable this feature, start with the light bulbs OFF and everything else is the same.
