    well I’m not familiar with the stanley series, most I had dealt with were genie or liftmaster,— opens by itself or does not stay closed?? common reasons door will open back up are something is in the safety beam path ( 2 infared lights that attach to bottom of track- prevents door closing on car, pet , person etc) these could be misaligned or something is in the way of the light ( not all openers have these 15 years or newer)– downward pressure is too heavy– there are usually adjustment screws on the motor to increase pressure and speed– look for the down screw and back it off slightly to allow door to close easily–

    if the door is opening at odd times when it appears that no one is around ,someone in your neighborhood is on the same frequency as your door opener ,change the numbered slides on the back of the opener and your remotes ,even one digit will do and your problem is solved

    Not recomending this if you straighten the antena that comes on the opener from the factory that should do the trick if not you need a new logic bord.
