I have a Sear craftsman garage door opener model: 139.18052, slightly more than a year. The wire and wireless remote control of the garage door opener cannot close the door. It seems like it wanted to close but it stops immediately. However, I found that garage door open can close the garage-door using the wired remote by continuously hold the close botton until is completely closed.

Does anybody have this problem before and can share some light? Many thanks....

There are two type of reason that the door won't close.

One the "electric eye" is obstructed, broken, or misalinged.

The other is that the closing force is too high. Either caused by a problem with the door or the opener need adjusting. Try opeating the door manually to see if there are any problems in the door.

The Chamberlain that I have (same manufacture and similar design) has different characteristics for the 2 problems.

IIRC being able to close it with the manual control, but not remotely indicates a problem with the electric eye.

But your manual will be specific for your model.
