It is likely that the safety mechanism is being triggered. It thinks there is an obstruction. If there is no beam of light running across the front, it may be cheaper and easier to replace the operator than to service it.
If there IS a beam, make sure it us not obstructed and that it hss not been knocked out of position.
Feel free to contact me if you need more assistance.

SOURCE: garage door won't close by remote in cold weather

There are ususally two adjustments on garage door openers...
One is for the pressure and the other is for the travel. Assuming that the travel adjustment is properly adjusted...

On a cold day things are a little tighter and it "wants" a little more downwards pressure to complete its cycle. Sorta like me in the morning -- I need a little coffee to get going on a cold morning.

Adjust the down pressure/force just enough to make the unit close properly. Do not over adjust the down pressure or you will find it won't stay closed. Sometimes the manufacturer doesn't make it too clear where this adjustment is, but you should be able to find it if you look around.

I have seen units that were installed for years all of a sudden need a little tweak of this adjustment.

Good luck

To answer your question the opener is in vacation mode. Press and hold for 3 seconds the button on your wall control with the lock icon. The green light will stop flashing and you will be back in business.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Lynx 455

Check the sensors in the doorway. Sounds like they may be misaligned. They need to be pointing at one another to work properly.

Garage door opener remote does'nt work when the garage door is shut


Probably you have a weak battery in your remote transmitter. When the garage door is closed it requires a stronger signal. Open the remote and replace the battery.

Garage door will not close from remote or car. Garage door will open from remote or car; however, it will not close using these controls. The only way I can close the garage door is to press on the manual...


Try reprograming the opener to each remote, if this doesn't work then the command/radio module in the opener is damaged and needs to be replaced. Hopefully you can find one or you will have to replace the whole garage door opener. Good luck.

Garage door only closes halfway


If the main light is flashing 10 times when the door reverses when closing it is a door sensor problem. You can override this with the door control but not with a remote. Make sure the door sensors are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is on and not flickering.

My Craftsman remote won't close my garage door


If the remote opens and closes while inside the garage but not outside , there are a few things it could be. Assuming it was working fine before..
1. weak battery in remote.
2. remote itself could be bad. (unless you have more than 1 remote acting the same)
3. Logic board in opener is going bad causing limited range.Is the wire that hangs down from the opener straightened out? That is your remote antenna.Some people have coiled or even cut it off..reducing range.
4. Less likely but this can happen- interference from another electronic device, wireless routers, cell phone, new appliances etc.. can reduce remote range. Any new electronics recently purchased?

My remote intermittenly opens/closes the garage door


You can find a free manual for your door opener at manualsonline .com You might want to look at how to program it and change the unit to a different frequency. You can sometimes get better response and eliminate interference. Also make sure your battery contacts in the remote are clean.

Remote Control closes garage door but does not open


It sounds like a case of your keypad losing signal strength enough that it cannot transmit through the closed door. If a new battery doesn't do the job a new keypad will.

Door will not close with remote.


The code you are seeing with 5 blinks is "RPM sensor or motor overload." We can eliminate the motor overload because the door is trying to close. The RPM sensor is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor. It's a snap to replace and is available at any good door opener company. They will know exactly what you are talking about if you ask for an RPM sensor board.
