Door Opener goes down, but not up.

Hi all,

I just stumbled across this forum, and am hoping someone can help me out with my door opener.

It is an Allister ARD IIA. The opener will close the door, but not open it. I have tried with the door attached, and also released. When the button is pushed, I hear clicks from the opener. On the down cycle I hear a louder 'pop' - like a relay making contact, but when I push the button for 'stop' and 'up', the click is much quieter.

I know the opener works in the down direction, because when I manually spin the motor and raise the door, the opener will close the door. But then nothing happens in the other direction.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Well, after reading up in the archives here, I decided to switch the circuit board with my other identical GDO, and guess what? The circuit board is the culprit.

SHould I just buy a new circuit board? Also, where is the best place to buy one?
