How to find your  Sears / Craftsman Garage Door Opener model number?

If you’re trying to locate the right manual according to the model number of your Craftsman garage door opener – nothing can be simpler. You can quickly locate the model number of your garage door opener on the label that’s attached to the opener.

Sears / Craftsman Garage Door Opener Instructions

The instructions contained within the Craftsman owner manual are super-easy to navigate, thanks to a detailed table of content (ToC) right at the beginning of the manual. You can refer to the ToC to jump to any relevant section you want. Here’s how the layout generally works out:

  • Introduction: This section talks about all the pre-installation details, such as tools required, inventory, etc.
  • Assembly: This heading will include all the relevant information you’ll need to put together the trolley, pulley, and belt. 
  • Installation: If you’re looking for details about tightening the chain or positioning the header bracket – this is the section for you. 
  • Adjustment: The adjustment heading deals with how to test the safety reversal or protector system safely. This section will walk you through how to program the systems with diagrams and directions. 
  • Operation: The operation section is designed to deal with all your queries related to the garage doors’ running – from safety instructions to what each feature offers and everything else connected to using the garage doors. 
  • Repair Parts / Accessories / Warranty: The repair parts section offers you in-depth information required for rail assembly and installation parts. If you want details about the overall accessories (of the product) and the warranty – you can look under the other headings.

Sears / Craftsman Garage Door Opener Troubleshooting

The manual’s troubleshooting section contains a diagnostic chart complete with errors, solutions, and diagnostic codes (that signify the problem). These errors include:

  • The garage door opener will not close, and the light bulbs flash.
  • The door control will not function.
  • The garage door opener will not close, and the light bulbs flash. 
  • Door coasts after it has come to a complete stop. 
  • Door moves 6-8″ (15-20 cm) stops or reverses. 
  • The battery status LED is constantly flashing green. 
  • The opener runs approximately 6-8″ (15-20 cm), stops, and reverses.
  • The garage door opener will not close, and the light bulbs flash.

There are also some troubleshooting issues listed that don’t show up in the diagnostic codes – like what to do when your garage door opener beeps every 30 seconds. 

For garage doors with WiFi capabilities, you can refer to this section to determine why your garage door opener can’t connect to your home WiFi network.

Types of Sears / Craftsman Garage Door Openers

Craftsman produces a line of tools, and their garage door openers can be divided into two major categories: chain drive and belt drive. 

Chain drive garage door openers

Chain drive garage door openers use a metal chain to open/close the garage door, in conjunction with moving gears. The metal chain assembly unit is attached to tension springs that help lift the garage door. 

This type of garage door is more popular because it’s more affordable and readily available. Craftsman chain drive door openers also include a remote control with a frequency range of over 1000 ft. and WiFi capabilities (along with smartphone accessibility).  

Belt drive garage door openers

On the other hand, belt drive garage door openers utilize a rubber belt to open the garage doors. The belt drive helps lift the door by moving the belt, while the belt is used to move the trolley when the door is opened or closed. 

One of Craftsman belt drive door openers’ most significant advantages is that they offer smooth and ultra-quiet operation. While belt drive garage openers are somewhat pricier than their counterparts, they’re also more durable and long-lasting. Many Craftsman belt drive garage door openers include a smart-motion LCD wall console and a wireless / keyless entry pad for easy entry. 

About Sears and Craftsman

Sears originally established the Craftsman house brand to produce a lint of tools related to home improvement, lawn and garden equipment, and work-wear. 

The tools were first made available for the public in 1927 via a Sears catalog, and later on, through other retailers. One of the best things about most Craftsman hand tools is that they include an unlimited lifetime warranty that requires no receipt or dated proof of purchase. 

Not to mention, Craftsman garage door openers are quite a hit with the buyers, and they even have a place of honor on the ‘Amazon’s Choice’ list.
