Bell wire is color coded ,red terminal red wire ,white terminal white wire , when connecting theese wires be careful not to staple into one by accident because it will definetly cause a short , don,t worry it won,t cause a fire because it is low voltage , you can stick the wire in your mouth and still not get a shock , but seriously the wire that comes with theese machines is flimsy and can get broken fairly easy , just double check your wiring , infrared sensors are white and black and must be put in the proper stick in terminals on the machine , Here is your configuration from left to right ,RED/WHITE /WHITE,BLACK , remember do not take the white wires from sensors and stick them into the white terminal next to red because that one is for the bell and the whit thats next to the black is for the infrared sensors ONLY theese two cannot be crossed and always keep the two wires together till your ready to wire to the machine because if you seperate them before they are impossible to distinguish from one another when it comes time to wire it to the opener ,Hopefully i was able to help you ,if you have any more questions i will be happy to answer them , lets get this thing working Sincerely Glenn

Find out where the tamper fault is. This panel has tamper monitoring for external bell remote keypad zones and cover. Check all devices for loose covers ,wiring for breaks (especially if new carpets fitted) and bell box.You can check for continuety with a multimeter inside the panel you should have a short between A/T terminals and between 0v and TR if not check the wiring.
