How to Maintain a Craftsman Garage Door Opener

Craftsman is a popular brand in the garage door industry. It is available through Sears stores. Since it is such a common name, it is easy to have a Craftsman garage door opener installed. Our technicians are capable of making the installation for you.

If you already have a Craftsman opener, here are a few things you will need to do to maintain the unit.

Test The Garage Door Sensors

Every automatic door has safety sensors positioned in the doorway. The purpose of the sensors is to keep your family from being hit by the door. There are two sensors that are pointed at one another. When something breaks the line, it causes the door to closing and reverse.

Be sure to test this feature on your garage door from time to time. You can do this by putting a trash can in the doorway. Push the button for it to close. The door should stop midway down and reverse. If it doesn’t then push the button to open the door again.

How to Re-Sync Your Remote

If your remote is not operating the opener, then you will need to re-sync the two. There are a few ways you can try to get it to re-sync. Do these steps:

  • Unplug the opener from the ceiling
  • Take the batteries out of the remote
  • Leave the two units off for 1-2 minutes
  • Plug in the opener and put batteries in the remote

After these steps, the Craftsman opener should work again. If it is still not working, replace the batteries in the remote. We can come out and look at your opener if it is still not working after that.

Read The Owners Manual to Troubleshoot

When your opener is not working, read the manual for troubleshooting. The owner’s manual will teach you how to:

  • Hang the opener
  • Install the sensors
  • Connect the door arm
  • And much more

You will find the instructions on how to program your remote control and erase all codes. If you do not own your owners manual, one of our technicians can come to your house and troubleshoot the problem for you.

Finding Replacement Parts

If your opener stops working and you need a new part, most of the time, it can be ordered online. Try ordering the replacement part on the Sears website. Once it comes in, you can make the repair yourself.

Before you order the part, make sure that it is compatible with your unit. Consult your owner’s manual for a list of parts. You should be able to get the part number to place the order.

Not all repairs can be made by a homeowner. That is why our team of professionals are available to make repairs for you. If your Craftsman garage door opener stops working and you don’t know what’s wrong, call us right away. We will get a technician to come by and check out your system.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
