Hi I have a...

Hi I have a craftsman garage opener model(###) ###-#### while the door was open it stopped working. The lights turned off and would not turn on again. No error code is displayed and the door control says push bar to activate. The unit has lower and I reconnected the wires to the unit. I have checked the sensors and unplugged and plugged the opener. The lights flash three times but no other lights or buttons flash.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the appliance? Have you gotten error messages before?

No error messages and I installed it new in 2015.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it is within my capabilities yes.

Hi ............my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you today……… what I would like to do for a start is erase the transmitters.....do a hard reset and then re program.......please follow these instructions explicitly and in its sequence

ERASE THE TRANSMITTERS:

hold down the LEARN button on the opener for 6 or 7 seconds….If you have a MY-Q device …immediately press and hold the LEARN button again until the learn LED goes out. All codes are now erased.

HARD RESET:

unplug the opener what should be for a good minute......in the meantime remove the batteries from the transmitters including the key less.....and if you have a battery back-up.....there is no battery in the wall transmitter…..plug back in the opener and replace the batteries which should be fresh

Do you know how to re program the transmitters? Hold them with-in 16 inches of the opener when you do

This is starting off with something simple and hopefully it will resolve the issue......

Always allow me time to prepare information for you. In case I have to go offline I am always checking back to keep things moving and expedited…..Please let me know how it goes

And thank you for your help and assistance
