Question about liftmaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Transmitter 300MC

1 Answer

Door goes up, Won't go down.

Opener will only go up. Will not go down. safety sensor lights are operating and set correctly. The overhead light comes on when the button is pressed. When the up limit switch setting is increased the door will go further upward until the switch makes contact and stops, but when I try to activate the door button again, nothing... Neither wall button or remote will make door go down, but it will go up...Help!

It sounds like the limits are out of adjustment. With the door down, rotate the down limit until it clicks. Then raise the door manually, and set the up limit until it clicks. You should be able to hear the switch 'click' when it activates. Pay attention to which way the plastic nuts are moving on the screw going up and down. That way you know which way to turn them to set it.

Door won't close


Your not clear what is going on but my door would not close because the sensor near the bottom of the door as not lined up with the other side. they both have to be in line with each other and also if there is dirt even a leaf over the sensor on either side it won't work either. Is your sensor wire on the over head box out in the open where it should be? If its not opener problem I don't know as you are not clear.

Garage door opener not working


Sensor must show steady light to close circuit and let opener work. If aligned, then there is a loose or broken wire. Try reaiming first to get steady light. Then check all wires . Another way to test and prove that is the issue is if u hold down the wired button at ur back door and the opener closes, then it is sensor issue. Good luck.

This is not a sensor issue, I have a similar problem, sensors work fine, garage door is still fully functional, all operations, including safety sensors work properly, just the overhead lights flash. I suspect there was damage to the power board due to a power surge, going to order a replacement to see if it works, will let you know how it goes.

Overhead light flashes and clicks when i push remote or button. I have to hold down the button for the door to come down completely. Sensors have been changed and light up appropriately.


If the overhead light flashes 10 times and the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the lights on one of the sensors is not blinking ever so slightly or the light is dimmer than the opposite one. Check to make sure they are connected properly. The solid white wires go to terminal #2 and the wires with the black stripe go to terminal #3.

Storm last night. Light comes on opener and the


HOLDING DOWN THE WALL BUTTON OVERRIDES THE SAFETY EYES.
WHEN HOLDING IT DOWN MAKES THE DOOR CLOSE PROPERLY THE PROBLEM IS IN THE SAFETY EYES.

ARE BOTH LEDS ON? - CHECK FOR A LOOSE OR BROKEN WIRE.
ARE THE EYES WIRED CORRECTLY?
ARE THEY AIMED AT EACH OTHER?

I WOULD RECOMMEND GETTING A SURGE PROTECTOR FOR THE NEXT TIME.

If when the door reverses the main light flashes 10 times it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a bit. If you can't get both lights to come on you have either bad wiring to the sensor or the sensors are bad.

It sounds like a logic board problem to me. I would remove the board and look for bad connections especially around that small transformer.

Chamberlain door will not close, despite down force set to max


Problem solved, sort of-
My unit has self diagnostic capabilities: next to the remote sync red button, is a yellow light the indicates diagnostic readings by blinking. In my case the light was flashing 5 times after the door failed to close. This meant RPM sensor failure. I rechecked the sensor and "flywheel" cap and found that it was not completely secured. With the "flywheel" in the proper position, providing readings for the RPM sensor, the door completely closed.
But my yellow diagnostic light is still flashing 5 times. My door is operating correctly, but the diagnostic feedback is still not completely happy with my RPM sensor. So I will keep and eye on it.
