Craftsman Garage door opener will not open garage door

Posted by suem56 (My Page) on

I have a Craftsman garage door opener #139.53681B. The opener just stopped opening the garage door so I replaced the battery (thinking the battery was dead) & now it will not work. I had a 2nd garage door opener which no longer will open the door. I thought maybe it might have lost it's memory, so I tried to reset it following the instructions on the back of the receiver but it still will not open the garage door. The garage door will, however, open with the wall switch. Any ideas on how I can get this to work again? It is very annoying as I now have to pull out of the garage, turn off the car, go into the garage & close the door with the wall switch, go out the front door & lock that & get back in the car. Anything you can tell me to do that might help would be greatly appreciated--thanks!

It's a little confusing but did your remote quit working when you tried to program the other? Try programming them again and see if one works. If neither works I think your receiver has quit working. This is part of the logic board.

sorry to be confusing--the first door opener quit working after I replaced the battery. I had a second opener which also quit after replacing the battery. I now have two openers that no longer work. If your theory is correct, can you advise how to fix it? Thank you!

The logic board is the end of the opener where all those white wires go. It normally has the part number stamped on it and begins with 41A. It is also fairly expensive. Some batteries can be put in backward. Make sure this is not the case.
