If it is not a digital unit the remotes need alignment.

SOURCE: remotes quit working for garage door

I had the same problem with my Craftsman opener but different model. However to fix this I simply followed the instructions that came with the opener and reprogramed the remote to the opener. The instructions are in your owners manual and are pretty straight forward.. John

SOURCE: Sears Craftsman 1/2Hp Garage Door Opener - Opens on its own

There are three causes for this problem:
1. a remote is sticking or is getting bumped (if the vacation lock is on and it still has phantom operation remotes are not the issue).
2. the logic board could be going bad (if you have the 315Mhz you have a newer operator so this is probably not your issue)
3. the wires to the wall button have a short. Try disconnecting the wall button wires from the operator. If this stopps the phantom operaton you might solve your issue by running new wires to your wall button.

SOURCE: garage door won't close by remote in cold weather

There are ususally two adjustments on garage door openers...
One is for the pressure and the other is for the travel. Assuming that the travel adjustment is properly adjusted...

On a cold day things are a little tighter and it "wants" a little more downwards pressure to complete its cycle. Sorta like me in the morning -- I need a little coffee to get going on a cold morning.

Adjust the down pressure/force just enough to make the unit close properly. Do not over adjust the down pressure or you will find it won't stay closed. Sometimes the manufacturer doesn't make it too clear where this adjustment is, but you should be able to find it if you look around.

I have seen units that were installed for years all of a sudden need a little tweak of this adjustment.

Good luck

The green eye receives the the signal from the Amber side. When is not on the sensors won't work. As far as the cold chamberlain did have a few issues with sensors not working or intermediate issues in cold weather. Their solution was to replace the sensors. But before you do that check everywhere the wires are stapled. Make sure that they are not pinching the wires.

My garage door will only open half way. It appears to be getting stuck when it is opening.


If you haven't gotten your issue fixed yet... I had the same problem (stopped opening half way when using the remote, went down fine, could lift/close manually fine as well) and this happened on our first cold weather day of the year which was very telling. Anyhow, there are two gauges/dials on your garage door opener unit itself (above, where the light is) which controls how much torque/strength your door uses to open or shut through resistance. I turned mine up some and it now works fine; what likely happened was that the metal tracks or the wood frame condensed in the cold and was providing just enough resistance to stop it when opening - as they have a security device built in to stop if they meet any resistance. Hopefully this helps!

Cold weather. Opener lifts door ~8


If there is any grease in the tracks clean it all out. On the rear of your motor unit you will find the 'up force' control. Turn this about 1/4 turn and try. You also should take a good look at your door springs and make sure one isn't broken. Release the door from the opener and open it manually. Shouldn't be heavy and should stay when released about 1/2 way up.

Check the electric eyes. If they don't see each other the door thinks there's something in the way. Blinking light is a safety alert to check the travel path.

You can turn up the up and down force on the motor head to give the unit more power. During colder weather the unit needs more power. Afterward do a 2x4 safety reversal test. thanks, BB
