    I have the "AccessMaster" version of the Liftmaster garage door opener. The door will only go down if I hold the wall button down until it completely closes. If you try to use the remote or just push the buttom, it will reverse and give the five flashes which indicates that there may be an obstruction.

I used to work for Sears & Lift master made our openers. The sensors MUST be connected for the opener to work. If you disconnect them, it thinks there is something in the way.

I push the button and the door goes up but i push it to go down and it stops and the light starts blinking but it will go down if i hold the button until its all the way down


holding the button over rides the safety and is not advised until you know the door is free from obstructions and afe to operate. disconnect door from motor and be sure it operates smoothly. reconnect and check safety eyes at bottom right and left of door tracks. should be green and yellow lights( liftmaster) check the downward pressure setting on the rear of motor. it may need to be increased slightly

Door goes down and when it stops at botton, it turns and goes back up ??? Need adjusting ..How can I adjust???


Adjust the position of the door by using the black and purple buttons. Black moves the door UP (open) and purple moves the door DOWN (close)
Setting the up position: 1. Press and hold the black button until the LED starts flashing slowly, then release. 2. Push and hold the black button until the door reaches the desired UP (open) position 3. Push the door control or programmed remote control. This sets the Up (open) position and begins closing the door. 4. Immediately when the door begins to close press and release the black or purple button. This will stop the door Setting the Down position: 5. Push and hold the purple button until the door reaches the desired DOWN (Closed) position. 6. Once the door is closed, If there appears to be too much pressure on the door, you may toggle the door back and forth using the black and purple buttons to reach the desired closed position. 7. Push the door control or programmed remote control. This sets the Down (closed) limit and the door should open.

    Can not open the door in microwave the release button springs seem to not working can that be fixed. Have opened the release button but cannot see the problem


    Do not pry the door open since there is an easier remedy which will lead you in the direction that you need to fix your problem. Take the cover off after you disconnect the power to it. Once you have taken the cover off (only a few screws) you will be able to see the two latches that hold the door closed and the link that opens both of them. You can just lift both latches at the same time and it will open. After you have done that take a good look and press in on the open door button and you will see where you have the problem of the door hanging. That button should push a linkage that pushes up on both latches at once to open the door. It is spring loaded so that it comes back down so that when you close the door it will hold the door close.You need to take the cover off the microwave so that you can pull both of the latches that hold the door closed up. When you push the button in it engages a linkage that pushes both taches up at the same time to open the door. It is springloaded and will come back down during normal operation to hold the door closed when you close it again. That area is where your problem is. By looking at what happens when you press the open door button you should be able to readily see where the problem lies in that linkage

    Garage door won't close w/o holding down push button on wall


    Check the door sensors. They must be properly aligned to work. Both of them has a small light that must be lit and will only light when they are pointed at one another.

    Have to hold the button untill door is all the way down


    The sensors are required as a part of a safety system. If they are not installed, then the down function can be overridden by holding the button down. Holding it down assumes you are watching the door and no one will be trapped underneath it.

    Buy and install sensors, and the door will work correctly.
