If the light blinks 10 times it is a sensor problem. Nothing else will cause this. Tweak the sensor a bit and check it out.

Check the resistance down button (There is one for down and another one for up). You may need to adjust the sensitivity. That way even if for some reason the have hard time coming down, less sensitivity may solve that issue.

If it moves 6-8 inches and then stops it is most likely the rpm sensor.

Yellow and green are what the lights should be.

Does the led on the wall control blink?? If is does press the lock button.
If it doesn't you will need to reprogram the remote.

Watch the eyes as the door closes, does one of them go off? If so the track may be flexing causing misalignment. (Widen the track near the bottom)

If all of the above don't help check the sensitivity adjustment. Turn it about 1/8 turn clockwise and try the door again - continue this until the door goes full cycle without reversing. If you have to set the sensitivity past 3/4 the door needs to be adjusted.

Usually when this happens it is because the door is open and the trolley is jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. Try loosening the chain to relieve the pressure on the trolley and then close the door. While the door is closed locate the 'up limit' control on the side of the motor unit and turn this control 2 full turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Now tighten the chain.

Both lights on our garage door sensors are green (not blinking), but the door will not close with the remote or button in the garage. It does close if you force it by holding down the button in the garage....


If the main light flashes 10 times when the door starts to close and then reverses it is a door sensor problem. Look very closely at the lights on the sensors. If one of them is flickering ever so slightly it will give you the problem you have.

If the main light is not flashing then you need to increase the down force which is near where all those white wires go. A 1/4 turn should do it.

Door opens, when closing stops immediately but there is nothing blocking the safety light and lights are green. I can hold the button and door will close but as soon as i release the button it opens again.


Check your door sensors closely. Sometimes one will be off just a bit and the light will be on but blinking ever so slightly. If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is definitely a door sensor problem. Nothing else will cause that.

I have the 1/2 horsepower opener with the green (Sears)


Sometimes the sensors will be aligned closely enough that the logic board will turn on the receiving units light but it will act like yours. If you look real close at the light you will see that it is flickering ever so lightly. Tweak the sensor so the light is on steady.

When i try to close garage with transmitter or keypad it moves a few inches and stops or goes back up


If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the small light on each sensor is lit and not blinking. The sensors must be pointed at one another to work properly. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have a bad sensor.
