You need to do is shade the eyes some how for th door to work. What I did was remove them and put them up by the opener so the sun does not get to them.

Will sunlight affect the sensor eye on liftmaster doors


No. The sensor is infrared so sunlight shouldn't affect it at all. The sensors are set up so they send a signal to each other, thus the need that they be carefully aligned. They work fine here in the California bright sun where it streams through my open door most of the day.

My safety override prevents the door from closing and there is nothing blocking the doorway. Can I override the safety mechanism?


Hello,
I am not a expert on doors but have ran into a simular problem with my door. Hope this will help.
-Mine would not go down during the day due to sunlight hitting the trip sensors, Take the cardboard tube from a roll of toliet paper and put it over the sensor that is getting sunlight (just a cheap shade).
-Also if you can hold down the door switch inside the garage and the door goes down it is a sensor problem

As I stated before I am not a expert on doors, so please don't give me a bad review I am just sharing what worked for me.

Thanks,
Shop Dog

Garage door opener


This is cause when there is something blocking one of the sensors. Look on each side of your garage door near the concrete when the door is closed and you will see small sensors that are facing each other.. Make sure they are not misaligned and that nothing is in front of them.
