Craftsman 53985 garage door opener

artquinAugust 26, 2010

I have a Sears Craftsman 53985 garage door opener. I need to revert the way it opens [run clockwise- to the right]; I want to run to the left [counterclockwise]. The reason is to open TWO doorS [two individual leaves] of garage that open toward outside.I have seen the garage door working that way[counterclockwise]; but always have been done by Sears Technicians.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

You want to do something that is so wrong it is crazy. An opener should never be connected to 2 doors and to reverse the opening and closing would also reverse the safeties. This is a very dangerous situation you are asking for.
