Your garage door has photoeye sensors that are blocked or misaligned. Look for a two devices one on each side of the door opening near the bottom. They usually have an indicator light on one of them that is on when they are unblocked.

Foodsaver Professional II locked up. 3 green lights blink on and off. Is the problem fixable?


I completely diassembeled my unit and could find nothing wrong. I reassembled it and had the same problem.

In my opnion the controlled board has failed; time to guy a new Foodsaver.

The small black rubber covered hole on the left side of the vacuum channel is not the reset button, it is the "lid closed" button.

The seal is not the issue as the lights start blinking right after you turn the unit on.

My genie garage door opener opens with no problem but when closing it only goes down a few inches then goes back up. I have went through an hour of troubleshooting with genie techs but still cannot get it...


Most openers have a safety cut out to prevent the door hitting your car when closing ,check the door guides to see if the door jams or is twisted.Depending on the model check the drive chain for sticking links or binding.Failing all disconnect from door and run unit without door.This will narrow problem to door or closer.

Outdoor device won't register inside.


All these wireless weather station devices have to be paired to the base unit whenever the batteries are changed in any of the remotes. It's a poor design issue, but there is no way around it, due to the nature of wireless operation.

Place both units near each other and look on the back of your base and remote sensor units, you should find a reset button (or a small hole). Either press the button or use the end of a paper clip to depress and hold the reset on each unit; Base 1st, then the remote 2nd.

After a brief moment, the remote should register with the base and you'll be back getting wireless readings.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

No matter where the door is located on the track when i engage it to the pully and press the button it will go down about 1 a foot and then stops and comes back up about 1 a foot and the lights blink....


There is an adjustment for how much 'torque' the unit is using to lower the door, and if your door is jamming or if this setting is set too low, the door will reverse. There are 4 adjustments on this unit: one for all the way up, one for all the way down, and the one for 'jams'
First: make sure you have BOTH a yellow light on one sensor and a green light on the other sensor. 2nd: Go inside the gararge (keep kids and pets away) and press and HOLD down the close/open button and keep holding it - this is an override for the photoeyes and your door should go all the way down to the close position. IF if doesn't, then you need to adjust the white knob that will allow it to close. It is testing to see if you have a jam, and the setting might be too low, or your door is binding. If these don't help, you'll have to call a pro. Good luck my friend.

I have a Simple Human 14 oz sensor Soap Dispenser


This is what I found in the Simplehuman FAQ's. I had to wait about 30 minutes for the light to stop blinking, but it seemed to work for me.

If the pump is unresponsive or the blue light is flashing, fresh batteries should resolve this issue. Please power off the pump completely. Once the pump is turned off, remove the old batteries. Please wait for the pump to reset (until the flashing light stops and preferably letting it rest overnight) before you install the new ones.

Weatherking Short Cycling


You make a good point about overheating on heat exchanger temp.

Since you don't have to reset anything for it to recycle, then I assume you have one of the newer forced draft furnaces.

There should be leds on the control board inside the furnace compartment that will blink a code to you, telling what the shutdown reason was. Blinks and code should be on a label inside the blower door panel, or inside the control box cover.

Let me know what they are, and I can give you more direction. I am assuming this furnace worked at some point, and no changes have been made (including closing of duct vents).

Garage door stops and reverses either way-up or down-


If the light on the opener flashes when this happens, count the flashes (which indicate the type of problem) and consult your owners manual.  If you don't have the owners manual, you can find a digital copy online at the manufacturer's website. Also, check your manual for an adjustment that tells the opener how much resistance you want it to tolerate before reversing.
