Hello everyone

I have a 1/2 HP Craftsman Garage Door Opener that was just installed this past spring and It's now not working at all.

Last night I went to put a bulb in one of the sockets on either side of the opener and upon screwing the bulb in I heard a pop and the lights and power went out in the garage. I flipped the breaker in the garage and the lights and power came back on, but my garage opener now just clicks when you hit the button to open the door. I found out that a washer had fallen into where the bulb's socket is located and thus why this happened.

The opener is receiving power, but I don't know to what extent the unit is damaged.

Do these openers have a fuse inside the unit or something that I need to reset?

Just looking for some suggestions on troubleshooting the problem.

Thanks for any information you can provide.

You'll probably need to take the entire assembly apart and look for damaged wires, or metal on metal contact where the washer fell through. You could have damaged the circuit board in the Liftmaster garage door opener and need a new one.

If your in Phoenix AZ and need help with the problem give us a call at
