This might be a easy fix but not sure two thigns I would try is check to make sure you don't have a lock switch on your wall control and if you do make sure its off. That locks out the remotes but oddly they go bad and sometimes just do really odd things. The other thing is check the wire to the wall control make sure theres no cuts or staples in it

Liftmaster 1255lm garage door opener


It sounds like a problem with the infrared safety beams, either they are not working, are misaligned (someone might have kicked/bumped into one), or I even had one that didn't work because there was too many cobwebs/dust covering one of the lenses.

My Craftsman garage door will not close, only a few inches at a time


have a problem which returns every year when outdoor temperatures drop close to freezing. garage door will open only a few inches, then stops. I can close it and try opening it again... same result. After five or six such attempts it typically will open. Interestingly, when I push the switch button mounted on the interior wall of my garage and keep it pushed, the door will open, until I release the button at which point it stops opening.

My Liftmaster garage door won't open or close. I hit the button and it make a sound and clicks but won't close


Remove the cover and check the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor. It will be obvious if it is bad. Tell me - if it won't open how do you know it won't close?

Must hold wall unit to close garage door...


there is an error in the system. most likely The safety beams (mounted on the track near the floor) are out of alignment and the LED light should be blinking. The garage door opener will not let the door close if the beams are misaligned. Realign them and the LEDs on the beam or on the operator will stay on. you should be able close the door now with one push.

Chamberlain Liftmaster Pro. Garage door Problems closing


The sensor eye - or more likely, the other end, the sensor light - probably got knocked out of alignment. The eye should have an LED on it - possibly one that glows green when it's ready to close or red when it's obstructed or out of alignment. Try adjusting the light until the LED on the receiver glows green.
