The light flashing 5 times is the code for RPM sensor or motor overload. The RPM sensor is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor. I would really doubt it is a motor problem unless you have been operating the opener enough that the thermal overload protector has shut it down. It will start running again as soon as it's cooled off.

My remote sends a signal, the opener indicator flashes, but the door does not open?


The learn button is located on the garage door opener unit itself that hangs from the ceiling. If you follow the gray antenna up to the unit you will see a red/orange button on the unit. That is the learn button. When you push that button and amber LED will light up either above or next to the learn button. This indicates that the garage door opener is now ready to learn a new device. Press and hold the button you want programed on the garage door opener remote and release it. The garage door opener will click and the garage door opener light will go off and come back on (if the light bulbs are in working order). The amber LED will go out, repeat if you need to program anything else.

I have the Liftmaster Chamberlain Professional Formula I model 102.1499A and for some reason, the learn button will not sync with the homelink on two of my cars. Is there a way to reset the learn button? ...


Here is the information I have for homelink.

  1. Clear out anything previously programmed into the in-car system from the factory by holding down on the 2-outside buttons simultaneously, until the in-car LED starts flashing rapidly. This may take up to a minute (in most cases, the key should be on auxilary, and/or the car door must be shut).

  2. Decide which button you want to make to be your in-car garage door transmitter. Hold your transmitter up near the selected button, pressing both the garage door remote and the selected in-car transmitter button simultaneously. Hold down on the buttons until the in-car, LED light flashes rapidly. This sets the in-car remote transmitter to be your garage door openers make transmitter, but you are not done. You now need to make this in-car transmitter your personal transmitter.

3. Go to the Learn Button on your garage door opener. The button is usually next to the area where the floppy antenna is connected to the motor head. With Genie it is most often behind the light lens, and an indicator light flashes red when pressed. With Sears or Liftmaster (Chamberlain) it is near, or part of, the terminal screw board, and is a red, green or purple square button with a green, amber or purple indicator light. Press this learn button momentarily. The indicator light will turn on and blink if Genie or otherwise stay lit. For Genie systems, go back to the in-car transmitter button you programmed and press this button 3 or 4 times, or until the door starts moving. This should set your in-car transmitter to your garage door opener. For Liftmaster, Sears, or Linear Megacode press and hold the in-car button you programmed until the garage opener light flashes. Your in-car is now programmed to operate your door.

That is the code for "RPM sensor or motor overload". If the door is stuck open and the trolley is jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit it will cause this problem. You can remove the bolt and then run the opener until the door closes. Then locate the 'up limit' control on the side of the motor unit and turn it 2 turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. The RPM sensor board is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor.

IChmberlain Garage door does not pen or close


The light flashing 5 times is the code for "RPM sensor or motor overload" and the 10 clicks sounds like the relay for the main light bulb that flashes when the door sensors are blocked or misaligned.
