I have a craftsman garage door opener with no manual. The pad (not keypad) on my wall with the light and lock switch flashes green and will not operate the door. The remotes and keypad open and close it fine. It just stopped working. Any ideas?

Hi - have you checked the pad to see if it's somehow been damaged at the electrical connections on the back of the lock? My mother-in-law's garage door opener developed a "mind of its own" a while back. The remotes wouldn't always work, nor would the switch mounted inside the garage entryway door. I ended up checking all the wiring and found water had collected behind the lock pad (she didn't have a key for it and never used it; the previous owner never gave her a key for the lock). I disconnected the wires from the lock and the problem went away. Her pad didn't have a light on I'm thinking the flashing light is indicating trouble at this point. Also, have you gone online to try and locate the manual at the manufacturer's website? Good luck!
