Craftsman GDO problem

Posted by chrisdgdo (My Page) on

I have two Craftsman model 139.53681B GDOs with the three button keypads, as well as an outside coded keypad. We recently lost power during a thunderstorm and neither GDO is working, either by remote or keypad. The lights on the keypads are lit solid, but those on the motors are blinking in 5 blink intervals. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

RE: Craftsman GDO problem

That blinking 5 times is the code for "RPM sensor or motor overload." That doesn't make sense with your problem. I would first of all try unplugging both openers from the power and let them sit for a few minutes. Just may reset their tiny brains. Two openers with the same problem at the same time is mighty strange. I really suspect lightning damage rather than a problem caused by the electrical outage. I'm at a loss beyond this point.

RE: Craftsman GDO problem

I have the same problem. I unplugged the GDO and waited a few minutes and then I erased the code and re-programmed. It would work at times for a couple of days or just a few minutes. The unit itself works, it just the remotes and homelink that doesn't work consistantly. I'm still experiencing this problem and don't know what to do.

RE: Craftsman GDO problem

Now I can't get the homelink in my car to work and finally got the remote reprogrammed only to have it work when I point it right under the atenna wire.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
