Question about Chamberlain Powerdrive PD422D 1/2 HP Security Plus Screw Drive Garage Door Opener

I want to jumper out the photo sensors for my Chamberlain system

I have no kids or dogs but lots of leaves to continually break the sensor
beam. I'd rather just jumper out the system so that the mechanism believes it has 'beam complete' all of the time.

Owners Manual for Chamberlain Garage Door opener. Model 2265R


Unfortunately, the 2265R is not a Chamberlain supported model. The manuals for supported garage door openers are list here: http://www.chamberlain.com/parts-and-support/installation-manuals . The manual for the 2265 is here: http://www.chamberlain.com/CatalogResourcesV3/en-us/shared/files/tucmanuals/A2497M.PDF . There is also the 2265C: http://www.chamberlain.com/CatalogResourcesV3/en-us/shared/files/tucmanuals/A2512M.PDF .

It could be that the 2265R is a refurbished model. Then the manual for the 2265 garage door opener will give you the the correct manual.

In my experience, when the garage door goes down partway and then reverses completely, the problem is something breaking the light beam between the safety sensors. This can be a piece of grass or the shadow from the door when one or both sensors are getting full sun. If the problem is some weed getting pushed into the sensor range, simply cut the nearby grass shorter. To check if the problem is a shadow, try getting a couple of people to stand near (but outside) of the garage door. They should be positioned to cast a shadow on the sensors. If the door closes properly when the button is pressed, then the solution is to wait for a slightly different sun position to close the door or to continue to hold the button on the wall panel.

I hope this helps.

Door will go down until it gets close to the sensors (transmitters) and then it hesitates and goes back up. One of the sensors has a constant green light which tells me that it works properly, but the...


The sensors have to see each other in order for the system to work. If the beam is interrupted, it will cause the door to go to the open position. It sounds like the sensors are out of alignment. When the door is closing, it moves a sensor slightly and this breaks the beam, door reverses and opens. Work the sensors so that they are both aimed perfectly at each other. I believe that the amber light will change to a different color when the sensors are aligned.

We have a older craftsman door opener and we now need to hold the button to close the door and the car remote dose not work.


Clear any obstruction from between the safety sensors. Loose leaves, trash, and dirt on the lens of the sensor itself are all examples of things that can obstruct the sensor's signal.

  1. Check each sensor for a steady glowing indicator light. If both indicator lights are on, or if one indicator light is flickering, the sensors may be slightly misaligned. To check for misalignment; obstruct the beam of the sensors so that they cannot see each other. When the beam is blocked, the indicator light on one of the two sensors will temporarily go out. This is the receiving sensor. Remove the obstruction and loosen the wing nut on the back of the receiving sensor. Adjust the receiving sensor until the green indicator light goes out, if not already out, then realign until the green light is bright and steady, then retighten the wing nut. This usually takes a couple of attempts before it is back in alignment.

  2. If an indicator light is out on one or both sensors, check for a possible loose or shorted wire. Sensor wires are attached to the white and black terminals on the back or side panel of the overhead motor unit. Check that they are securely connected to each terminal. Also check the wires for any breaks, especially anywhere they are spliced together.

IF THE DOOR INFACT BRAEKS THE BEAM THE EYES NEED TO BE MOUNTED FURTHER AWAY FROM THE WALL. ABOUT 2 INCHES FROM THE ACTUAL DOOR HARDWARE.

MANY NEWER DOOR OPENERS ACTIVATE THE LIGHT EACH TIME YOU BREAK THE SAFETY SENSOR BEAM.

THE LIGHT SHOULD STAY ON FOR ABOUT 4.5 MINUTES EACH TIME THE OPENER MOVES OR THE BEAM IS BROKEN.

DOES YOU WALL CONTROL HAVE A LIGHT BUTTON??
IF NOT THE CIRCUIT BOARD STILL HAS THE ABILITY TO WORK WITH ONE THAT DOES. I HAVE SEEN SOME WHERE THE ONLY WAY TO TURN OFF THE LIGHT WAS TO CONNECT A 3 BUTTON WALL STATION & TURN OFF THE LIGHT - THEN RECONNECT THE PUSH BUTTON - OR YOU COULD LEAVE THE 3 BUTTON WALL CONTROL.

YOU MAY ALSO TRY UNPLUGGING THE UNIT FOR ABOUT 5 MIN. THIS RESETS MANY OF THE CIRCUITS ON THE BOARD.
HOPE THIS HELPS
