If you have Stanley garage door opener made before 1997, you still can try to troubleshoot your opener by following steps below:
- Troubleshoot a non-working opener by firstly making sure the opener is connected into a live 120-volt outlet. Wait for 10 minutes if the motor is activated, the motor needs to be cool down. Make sure the beam sensor is attached and not misaligned. Make sure the wall console is not in locked position.
- A non-working Stanley opener is also caused by remote control. Try to do a simple troubleshooting step by changing the old battery with new one. Remote control does not work is also due to improper direction of antenna wire of the opener. You can move the antenna wire to another direction or coil the antenna wire. The last one is, try to reprogram the remote control.
- Wall button also contributes the malfunction of the opener. Check the wire, is there any shorted wire or broken wire of the wall button. Disconnect the wire from the opener rear side and try to short across screw terminals. If the opener works, your wall button wires are your issues that make the opener do not work.
