My liftmaster formula1 opens everytime but only the wall button will close it. Once in a while a remote will work but rarely. I have one remote, one vehicle oem remote and a wall mounted remote outside. All 3 are sporadic when closing, all 3 will open the door no problem. Only the wall mount inside the garage will close the door everytime.

Does it attempt to close. stop go back up and the lights flash....if so check the safety eyes, check for boken spring/ springs using the wall mount button circumvents the safety system. check the down pressure setting.

SOURCE: Chamberlain Liftmaster Pro. Garage door Problems closing

The sensor eye - or more likely, the other end, the sensor light - probably got knocked out of alignment. The eye should have an LED on it - possibly one that glows green when it's ready to close or red when it's obstructed or out of alignment. Try adjusting the light until the LED on the receiver glows green.

Have you replaced the battery in your keypad? That should take care of the trick.

Hold the button with the lock icon in for 3 seconds. This should toggle the unit off vacation mode and your remotes will work.

Can the code bechanged on a Liftmaster Formula1 opener, just divorced and husband isn't nice


I have to assume a couple things here. First - I assume he still has a remote. Second - You want to change the opener so that his remote will not work and not just the keypad outside the garage. So.

To change the opener so that none of the existing remotes and the keypad will work just locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. You may have to remove a light lens to get to it. Press and hold this button for 6 seconds. That erases the memory. Now you need to program your remotes. Hold the button down on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each remote you have.

Now the keypad. Press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Walk over to the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you want and press enter.

That's it.

Check the wall console. If it has a lock button and the LED is flashing, the GDO is locked. None of the remotes will work, only the wall button. If it is locked, press the lock button and hold for a couple seconds and release. The LED should stop flashing, and the remotes should start to work.
If the door will open but not close, and the lights flash 5 times, check the door sensors. Make sure the sensors are aligned with each other, and the LEDs are both on.

COULD BE A BAD REMOTE, I WOULD TRY ANOTHER ONE FIRST.


COULD BE A FREEZER ETC. PUTTING OUT INTERFERENCE.


OR


Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn't work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.


If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.


Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.


The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.

Or a remote in someone

Intermittent remote trouble


Your wall control is hard wired and doesn't use the receiver portion of the logic board. The remotes do. Your receiver is going bad.

You need to reprogram the remotes by briefly pushing the learn button on the garage door opener until it flashes once, then release the button on the garage door opener.

Now press the remote button once until you hear the garage door opener click, now press the remote button once again and the remote should be programmed to work for that garage door opener.

DO NOT press and hold the garage door opener learn button for more than 10 seconds or you'll erase all programs and have to relearn all the remotes, including your car ones.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards.

Liftmaster 971LM opens but won't close correctly


Check the wiring going to the sensors to make sure it is not broken or disconnected. You have a problem with the sensors themselves or the logic board. Unfortunately the only way to be sure is to replace.
