Nobody has that part. When you replace opener stay away from craftsman. Go to Home Depot and buy a chamberlain, they are not that expensive, you should be able to buy one for $125.00 which is a little motor than a replacement motor .

To have your lights come on automatically when you walk into an open garage you must START with the lights ON. To turn the feature on, turn the lights on manually with the wall switch, then press and hold the LIGHT button for about 10 seconds until the motor unit light bulbs flash.

Now, if the light bulbs are on, manually turn them out and then walk out through the open door. The light bulbs should come on.

To disable this feature, start with the light bulbs OFF and everything else is the same.

notify manufacturer or locksmith

Hello, Debbie -

I hope you have the user manual for your garage door opener so you can check it to find out what the beeping sound means. If you don't have the manual, you can add the name of the garage door opener manufacturer to your question by using the Edit feature, so that I or someone else can look up information specific to that particular make of garage door opener.

Many instructions I have found for a variety of makes of garage door openers state that the beeping can mean the back up battery for the garage door opener needs replacing. See the information here:

Since you did not specify make or model, replace button, check wires to button. The are plenty of guides on line. Google your question.

Here is a rather silly video that could assist you, although it isn't actually for your actual door, all such doors have a similar set-up.

I am not aware of any manet thing on a garage door opener so you are going to have to give some more information.

I had the same problem. Although it appeared to be the logic board, on mine it actually was the connectors between the logic board and the power supply board.
There are 2 connections on the logic board. One white connector with wires going to the main unit, and another set of connectors that plug directly into the smaller circuit board that holds the step-down transformer (120vac - 22vac). These pins were not making good connection between the boards. I simply bent the pins slightly so they would make better contact on the logic board and have not had a problem since. This must be a weak point on these door openers. Purchasing a new logic board would work too, as the connectors are newer and tighter.

The opener you've have cannot be retrofitted with sensors. The control board inside opener is not designed to use one. If you go to Home depot Chamberlain openers start at $128.00 is similar to yours includes may upgrades, including Security+2.0 technology,. This does not use DIP switches which are not secure.

If you're having to hold that inside button down to bring it down that is because of your sensors being out of alignment. On the bottom left and bottom right of your garage door track are your photo eyes and if they're not cleaned and pointing toward each other, then they will not allow the door to close. It will only close with the inside button because it is hardwired and when you hold the button down it shoots a continuous current that bypasses Those sensors. Remotes and keypad are wireless and must have photo sensors aligned to work
