I have a Craftsman 1/2 HP garage door opener on one of my double garage doors When you activate the door to open with the remote, the door will not open either from any of the remotes or the keypad entry.But it will open from the wired door opener. I cannot reset the unit to erase the coeds or program the remotes again . Please help..Thank you

If it will close from the remotes then the problem is not the programing.

You did not give any details of opener, age or features.

Does it have a lockout mode?

Does it have a fault Led on the unit, if so what is it flashing?

Try disconnecting the door from the opener and see if it will work them.

Well it works from the hard wired control but it will not work from any of the remotes, even the key pad.There are no faults either, and it will not let me program the remotes..I have a two car garage and the other one works fine and the units are the same and are about 3 yrs old.

model # 139.53985 Thank you

"even the key pad."

The Key Pad is just another remote. Exactly like the one in the car, except you need to enter a code instead of a single button to work the door.

You never did verify that you can't CLOSE the door from a remote after it is opened by the wall switch.

If you can't and you can't reprogram it then it seems that the receiver/logic board is bad.

Your model is not listed on this chart.

But based on the age I suspect that you have a SEcurity Plus system and would use this for the programming.

You might want to try it agiain in case you are missing a step.

Also you might try contacting AAARemote.
