HELP - Disable 'vacation' button

Posted by stmercha (My Page) on

I have an old Craftsman 139.525, and the vacation button light is on which has deactivated the remotes. Is there a special trick to turn the vacation light off? I've been in the garage for hours pushing the buttons, holding down for 10 seconds, etc. to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

RE: HELP - Disable 'vacation' button

This is normally done by holding the lock button in for 3 seconds. If this doesn't work you could have a bad wall control. Try disconnecting it and if your remotes still don't work you can reprogram them. To do this, find the smart/learn button on the back of the motor unit. Then hold down the button on the remote and press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each remote.
