Garage Door Opener--Instructions?

Hi.
New house, garage door opener, no instructions.
It's a Craftsman model #139.53647SRT1
I've searched the net with negative results. Does anybody have a link or can somebody provide a PDF version of the instructions? I know how to reset/program the remotes, but the lightbulbs stay on and I'd like to know if there's a timer setting, etc. to turn them off. Also, the remote has 3 buttons. Why 3 when only one controls the door?
Thanks in advance for your help.

IF it's like a Genie you can not change the timeout for the light. The buttons on the remote are for when you have more than 1 garage door and want to control them separately. Each for one button. Remove NO-SPAM from email address when replying

You did not look very hard for the instructions. I bought a newer home with a Craftsman garage door opener and did not have any trouble getting the instructions.
one button is for the light one for the door and one for locking the door, at least that is how mine works.

The lights will stay on for a pre-set period of time. It's a feature to provide lighting long enough to get around in the garage at night. Are you saying the lights never go off?? The 3 buttons are for other garage doors and/or controllable lights in the garage or house.

I have this model. Only the deluxe model has door and light buttons. This model 674 opens the door only. The light comes on for approximately 4 1/2 minutes then should go off. There is no adjustment. The PDF file referenced in this thread appears to be similar to your model only newer. It should answer most of your questions. My daughter's Sears door opener which was older than mine when out a couple of years ago. I was disappointed to discover that the Sears files had dropped that model. I finally fixed it but it reminded me that the old saying that you can always get Sears parts, manuals etc. ain't true anymore. Ah progress. Ross

Your operator is made by the Chamberlain/LiftMaster Corp. The purpose for the other buttons is to operate other operators, gates, indoor or outdoor lighting systems etc. Some of the wall controls for these operators have a switch that controls the light that may be either in the on position or shorted? Try disconnecting the bell wire that goes to the low voltage terminal strip of the operator if your light goes out, you just may have a short. If your light is stays on then you might have a problem with the logic board.

The lights default setting is 4.5 minutes, but can be reset if you have the multifunction wall switch (light control, lock, operator button). If you press and hold the 'lock' button until the light switches on and off it will be reset to stay lit for 1.5 minutes
