My several year old Craftsman garage door opener [139.53665SRT] suddenly stopped working. The elecrical box that supplies power to the opener has a test and a reset button. Resetting the box was all that was required. However, now the lights that are programmed to turn off after 4.5 minutes stay on indefinetly. The light button on the wall mounted control console does not function.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

My guess is that you had a lightning strike that popped the ground fault breaker and damaged the timer for the light. You can get replacement parts from S*ears , either by phone or online through their Web pages. That is, if you don't mind taking the unit apart.
If it's not a bother to do without the light, I'd just remove the bulb and not worry about it.
Or, you can replace the entire unit. If you go with another Craftsman, it's easy and you don't have to replace everything.
