Do you have the sensors at the bottom of the door? if so they might be out of alignment. all you have to do line them up by getting the green light solid. let me know if this helps you.

My garage door starts down then goes back and the motor light flashes 10 times. The owner's manual only refers up to 6 flashes.


Richard, what is the make of your GD Opener unit? However, make sure the antena wire on the unit is turned up. 2. sometimes direct sun on the sensors prevent operation from the remote. 3.adjust sensors on both sides making sure the green or red lights are on.4. check the remote battery ensuring red light works when you press the remote button. 5. finally, has on vacation switch on the unit has not been switched on.

If the LED is flashing rapidly when the button on the remote is not pressed you have interference from something. Check for old remotes stored in a drawer somewhere or some new electric item nearby. Start unplugging things until that rapid flashing stops.

The remote opener reset button goes off and will not work


The green button is not a reset it is the program button.

If you hold the button down for about 20 seconds it will erase all codes. Then, press and release the button - press and hold the button on your remote for about 10 seconds. the next time you press it it should activate the door. Repeat the 2nd step for all additional remotes.

The lock button on the wall control locks out all radio signals for vacations etc.

If the lock has been activated the green led in the wall control will flash - when the lock is deactivated the led stays solid green.

Hope this helps

Remotes don't work (3)


Did you inadvertantly hit the "vacation lock" button on the Mounted push button? This will cause the remotes not to work. Try hitting the button again, and then see if the blinking goes to solid green.

Good Luck
