Garage door opener help???

So my old craftsman garage door opener finally crapped out on me early this week. I go today and buy a new 1/2 hp opener. Put it all together and push the opener button and I see it try to close rather than open. If I didn't know better I would swear it is going backwards. I am at my wits end with it and got to wondering if there might be anyone on TW that knows alot about these openers. Any help would be appreciated.

Chain or screw drive?
If it's a chain drive, disengage the door from the opener & hit the button again. The Stanleys have a pull cord on the chain that does this. See what direction it goes. you do have to "calibrate" them.
Screw-drive.................dunno.

Disengage from the (chain or screw) shaft and hit the button, letting it go to the opposite end, then re-engage.
