If the door closes by holding the wall button you have a photo eye issue. Check your photo eyes for proper operation.

My chamberlain garage door opener opens misterously. how do I change the code?


Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn't work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.


If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.


Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.


The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.

Or a remote in someone

Garage door won't open or close using remote (light on lifter flashes twice) but will open and close using the button inside the garage.



WHEN HOLDING IT DOWN MAKES THE DOOR CLOSE PROPERLY THE PROBLEM IS IN THE SAFETY EYES.


ARE BOTH LEDS ON? - CHECK FOR A LOOSE OR BROKEN WIRE.

ARE THE EYES WIRED CORRECTLY?

ARE THEY AIMED AT EACH HOLDING DOWN THE WALL BUTTON OVERRIDES THE SAFETY EYES.

OTHER?

No remote but when i key in code or push inside button goes down but comes back up


If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit. Tweak them a little.

i think what is happening is the code in your open has a list of different codes it cycles through to keep someone from "capturing" it and opening the door when you gone.Try having someone help you and program the three units at the same time.

Sounds like you have a bad remote, bad battery in the remote, or it needs to be reprogramed to the alarm. If the alarm has been set with the remote, it will need to be disarmed with the remote as well, unlocking the door with the key and getting in, will set off the viper. If you know where you valet switch for the alarm is(small black push button), just turn the key forward till everything on the dash lights up, push the valet switch for about one second and let go. The alarm should shut off in a couple seconds. This will allow you to drive the car until you get you remote checked out.

Remote does not open or close garage door; inside button flashes


What has happened is that you electric eyes are blocked or have gone out. The eyes are at the garage door about a foot of the ground on both sides. There should be a red or green light on one of them. If not some thing is blocking the beam that goes across the door. It is a safety beam so kids can nt get hurt when the door is coming down. If the beam is broke the door will go back up.

Remote has stopped working


Its possible you held the learn button down too long, this will erase all remotes. The best way to fix this is to press the learn button once and the hold down the button on the remote until the lights blink, you will have to do this with all remotes.
hope this helps.
