To make sure the trolley will engage properly pull straight down on the rope and release. Then you can either run the opener or move the door by hand. One way or the other it should connect for you.

How to open the door if no electricity


Almost all garage door openers have a switch mechanism that will allow you to open the door manually. It is usually a pull cord on the motor or track. Pulling it down usually deactivates automatic mode. Just pull it up into position when the electricity comes back on.

2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Opener Homelink Setup


**** >>> This setup I performed with my new 2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Homelink and Chamberlain Garage Door Opener <<< ****

Chamberlain:
01. Power off or unplug the garage door opener motor power supply (which is mounted on ceiling of the garage) ;;;

02. keep the garage door opener transmitter in your hand (do not press any button at this time) ;;;

03. In your 2010 BMW 528XI Homelink button (which resides under rear view mirror) press the 1st and 3rd homelink button together for about 30-40 seconds (i.e., until the yellow light blinks fast) and when the yellow light next to the homelink button blinks fast release from pressing the (homelink) buttons ;;;

04. now hold the garage door opener transmitter closer (means within 2-4 inches) to the homelink button (either 1st or 2nd or 3rd) whichever you are planning to program to open the garage door ;;;

05. now press the garage door opener transmitter button and chosen homelink button (either 1st or 2nd or 3rd whatever you need) together ;;;

06. the yellow light (next to homelink button) initially may blink slowly but after few seconds (may be 10-20 seconds) will blink fast; once it started blinking fast release from pressing both garage door opener transmitter and homelink button ;;;

07. Now plug or power on the main garage door opener motor (which is mounted on garage ceiling) ;;;

08. On the main garage door opener motor (which is mounted on garage ceiling) press the "LEARN" button (once you press it may have yellow/orange color light; make sure the light is on) ; then within 30 seconds do the next steps #9, #10, #11 very carefully ;;;

09. go to your car and press the homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 1st iteration ;;;

10. again hold the same homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 2nd iteration ;;;

11. again hold the same homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 3rd iteration ** important note; generally three iterations are not necessary; and steps #9, #10, #11 must be performed within 30 seconds ** ;;;

12. during one of the iteration you will hear "CLICK" sound one-time from Garage door motor (which is mounted on ceiling) and if you have light attached with it; it will blink once (** if you hear the CLICK sound and/or light blinks once**) then the particular homelink button is programmed ;;;

13. now press the programmed homelink button; the garage door will open or close (but always it will take 3 or 4 blinks in yellow light or 2-3 seconds before the garage door opens or closes and which is normal) ;;;

** Thats it, your 2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Opener Homelink setup is complete ** ;;;

You can program rest of the homelink button the same way but following from the steps between #4 and #13 ;;;

Hope this steps will help you to program chamberlain Garage door opener in 2010 BMW 528XI Homelink. ;;;


** possibly the above same steps may work with other BMW 5-series cars homelink too (but I'm not sure) **

I reset my liftmaster/chaimberlain keypad (976LM) and now can't access garage. Is there a default code? No other access into garage (new owner to this house).


Make sure the battery in the keypad is good. You cannot reset the keypad without access to the opener. You will have to find a way into the garage.

A door technician uses a special tool to pull the emergency release after drilling a small hole in the door. The door can then be lifted without damaging anything. A keyed manual release assembly is then installed in the hole to be used if there are problems in the future like a power outage or malfunction like you have now.

I have no access to my garage i loss my remote and i have no doors to enter the garage. but i have a keypad outside the garage


If your opener has quit working and you have a vault garage, a hole will need to be drilled so a special tool can be used to reach and pull on the release rope. Calling for service is your best bet. After entry has been made and the opener repaired a mechanical release can be installed in case this happens again. The mechanical release is keyed for security purposes.

I turned my garage door opener off and went to manual yesterday because the power was off in our community . Since i have done this i cannot switch it back. It is a Chamberlain-3220. Can anyone tell me how...


I think by going to manual you must mean you released the door from the opener by pulling down on the rope. The release on newer openers locks in the released position so the two halves of the trolley will not snap together. To unlock this pull straight down on the rope and release. By running the opener or sometimes by manually moving the door you can get the two halves to snap back together.

Somehow my garage door Sensors (at the bottom of door opening) had debris which caused the Sears Door to go down and then go back up. I carefully removed the debris and now the door is stuck in the down...


There isn't a way to bypass the remote. If you call out a door technician he can drill a hole in the door and use a tool to pull the release handle. They can then install an emergency release using the hole they drilled. This will prevent the problem you are having in the future which is not as uncommon as it may seem Every time you have a power outage you are unable to get into your garage.
