Garage Door - Up, Up and more Up

My garage door will only go up. Once the moving center piece makes contact with the upper travel limit stop and shuts off, it will not reverse direction and go down the next time activated. I am thinking that the problem is in the board. I am on the right path or should I be looking at something else?

If yes on replacing the board, where do I look for one?

The unit is a Craftsman that is at least 7 years old (was there when I moved in)

Thank you,
Dave

stoney85,


If we had the model number of the GDO we would know what we are working with.
If you're saying the trolley is hitting the bolt stop in the track. You may just need to adjust the up travel adjustment screw. That adjustment should stop the trolley before it hits that bolt. That bolt is there to keep the trolley from damaging the GDO if it gets out of adjustment like it sounds like your's is.

Sorry for the delay in replying, something else broke.

The model number is 139536629SRT.

Thanks for the replys and I think I have enough to go forward with this.

If I get stuck, I'll be back.

Thanks again,
Dave

Follow up:

I have a two car garage so I had an identical unit for the second door. I replaced the suspect circuit board with the one from the other unit. It worked. Bad board. Just thought I would close the loop.

Thanks to all!
