Garage door goes a quarter way up.

I have the 3 button remote and now when I hot the large button to open the door, the light blinks 9 times. To open it, I have to hit the wall control, the dorr goes a quarter of the way up, then i have to hit the button again. To close the door I have to hit the wall button and hold it down until the door reaches the ground. Any ideas?

If the wall station is flashing the lock button is on Push and hold the lock button for 2 sec. and release. The light should be solid(not flashing) For you door opening part of the way: If you have a Chraftsman/Liftmaster:
 1.Check to see if the door is running correctly.
  A. Run the door down and pull the emergency release. See if the door will run easily by itself.
    1. If it runs hard by hand try lubricating the rollers and hinges with silicone spray or some form of lubricant (not WD 40)
    2. If the door is heavy and falls back to the ground, you probably have a spring issue (either broken or needs more tension) in this case call a professional door repair company in your area.
  B. If the door runs fine then check the up and  down force on your operator (the box that hangs from the ceiling). If the light bulb(s) on your operator are on the front and/or back, the force adjustment screw is on the back of the operator. If the lights are on the sides of the operator then the force adjustment screw is on the right side (looking from the back of the operator and facing  the garage door). Turn the light blue adjustment screw with the up arrow to a higher number.
C. If this does not solve your problem the top bushing could be going out of your operator. Open the case and see if a lot of black filings are on the top of the big gear. If so the gear assy. will have to be replaced part # 41C4220A

Sensor problem with garage door opener. One of them has a yellow light the other a green. The door starts to close than stops. You can close it if you hold the button down inside and the remothe doesn't...


If it moves 6-8 inches and then stops it is most likely the rpm sensor.

Yellow and green are what the lights should be.

Does the led on the wall control blink?? If is does press the lock button.
If it doesn't you will need to reprogram the remote.

Watch the eyes as the door closes, does one of them go off? If so the track may be flexing causing misalignment. (Widen the track near the bottom)

If all of the above don't help check the sensitivity adjustment. Turn it about 1/8 turn clockwise and try the door again - continue this until the door goes full cycle without reversing. If you have to set the sensitivity past 3/4 the door needs to be adjusted.

sounds like a problem in, i want to say the motor, but it opens fine, check your spring assembly, check your chain, and lastly, replace your opener, BUT FIRST, check to see if your garage door opener has a lock feature. most of them do, it disables all wireless remotes. if its only responding to the push of a wired button, then it may be in lock mode, find your manual. the lock button may be on the opener unit or the wall unit

Garage door opens w/ Power outages


You will need to get a surge protector on this unit first of all. You will have to replace the logic board and maybe the wall button or sensors depending on how bad the surge was. Any time the power goes out the logic board can be affected by it. Thanks BB

Liftmaster Professional and Clicker Programming Problems


after you press the button on the back of your operator you then push the button that you want to open the door with on your remote. The light should blink telling you that it has taken the code and things should work. Also sometimes the little numbers from 1 to 10 or 9 get sticky just move them back and forth and check to see that there all the way up or down or in the middle it's something simple like this.

on the back of your garage door opener there is a colored learn button--press and release-the learn indicator light will glow for a short time usually 30 seconds. within thirty seconds press and hold the buton on the hand held remote that you wish to operate your garage door. release the button when the motor unit lights blink. if you don;t have a light, two clicks will be heard. it has learned the code. procedure will be different for multi function control.

Craftsman Garage Opener Clicks only and LED blinking 5 times


Just fixed this problem tonight. Had the 5 blink/flash thing. Opened it up and saw that the motor wasn't spinning so it wasn't a bad rpm sensor. Jumped the red to black and then the blue to black to verify motor worked. At that point assumed it was the logic board not telling the motor to start, but I could hear the click of the relay. Pulled the logic board out and noticed a solder joint that had failed directly behind one of the relays. Resoldered that joint and the garage door opener worked again like a dream. Hope that helps someone else.
