Craftsman Garage Door Opener Remotes

Posted by terryra (My Page) on

I have a Craftsman garage door opener 1/2 HP model 139.19470D. Remotes are 139.18791B and they do not work. Tried new batteries, reprogramming remotes, clearing the memory and reprogramming remotes again. Opener works fine from the wall mounted switch. The light is 'not' flashing on the wall mount switch. When programming the remotes everything appears normal. The lights blink indicating that the code has been accepted. We've had the opener for about 3 years but just recently installed it. Any ideas?

RE: Craftsman Garage Door Opener Remotes

Make sure when you are programming the remotes that you release the smart/learn button quickly. If not you will erase what you have just done. What I normally do is hold the button down on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button. If this isn't the case then I think you have a bad logic board. I tried looking up the model numbers you give to make sure the remotes are correct but Sears doesn't recognize either model number.

Thank you for your response. Tried it but no luck. Do you have any idea where I might be able to find a schematic for the logic board. There is only one repair center around here and they aren't returning my calls.

The manufacturer has never furnished schematics or parts lists for the logic board. Years ago it got to be a replacement rather than repair due to labor costs.
