Basically any bell wire will work, available at any home centers everywhere. if the existing wire is long enough, just wire nut it together (white to white, color to color)

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?

If when closing the door it reverses to the open position and the main light flashes 10 times it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the small light on each sensor is on and not flickering ever so slightly. (check closely) Tweak them a little even though they may seem to be okay. Check for 5vdc between terminals 2 and 3 on the rear of the motor unit. If there is no voltage or if it is greater than 6vdc the logic board is bad.

There is no reset for the sensors. Make sure you have them wired correctly. The solid white wire from each sensor go to terminal 2 and the wires with the black stripe go to terminal 3. Also make sure the sensors are pointed at one another.

1/2 HP Sears Liftmaster will not close


YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BROKEN WIRE ON THE SENDING EYE. THIS WOULD CAUSE IT NOT TO LIGHT AND THE RECIEVER NOT TO GET A SIGNAL MAKING IT NOT LIGHT.

YOUR DOG IS PROBABLY THE CULPRIT AGAIN . THEY TEND TO SNIFF AROUND OR JUST GENERALLY BUMP INTO THE WIRES (SOMETIMES THEY CHEW THEM).

IF NO OBVIOUS BROKEN WIRES OR LOOSE CONNECTIONS CAN BE FOUND. YOU CAN TEST THE WIRING BY USING DOOR BELL WIRE TO TEMPORARILY REPLACE IT - THE FAULT COULD BE INSIDE THE WALL OR UNDER A STAPLE WHERE THE WIRES GET SMASHED (THIS ONE WE CAN'T BLAME ON THE DOG) :)

IF YOU REWIRE COMPLETELY (PAY ATTENTION TO THE POLARITY OR THE TEST WILL NOT BE VALID) AND THE LEDS STILL ARE NOT ON YOU COULD HAVE A DEFECTIVE EYE

1 Answer

Wiring the opener and sensors


The wall button gets the red and white wire. The safety eyes use the black and white wires. There are two types of attachments on the back of the openers. One has three screws. On this type the 1 is for the red wire, the 2 is for all white wires, and the 3 is for all black wires. The other type has four blocks and you just match the color to the wire color.
