My garage door starts down then goes back and the motor light flashes 10 times. The owner's manual only refers up to 6 flashes.

Cleaned the eyes. I can close it by holding down the wall door control button.

SOURCE: Door will only close when held down

That normally happens when the sensors aren't aligned. Both sensors have led lights on them the yellow/orange one will stay on all the time the green one will go out if it cant see the other sensor. Possibly theres a wire that's broken or the other sensor is really out of alignment. Check every inch of wiring from the sensor to the opener, remove wire nuts if present and check the connections. The wires that are used are small, solid and can break easily. Also see if there's a staple that's too tight, move the wire abit where it's stapled and look for damage.

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

SOURCE: The garage door will only go down if I hold 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?

Anytime the light flashes 10 times when the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the small light on each sensor is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a little. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have bad sensors.

If the main light on the motor unit flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem. If not it could be the RPM sensor that is causing your problem. This is a small circuit board just in front of the motor. Try increasing the down force first. This is a control on the rear of the motor unit.

If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem. Make sure neither light on the sensors is flickering ever so slightly. Sometimes hard to see. If the main light doesn't flash 10 times then it is probably the RPM sensor board. This is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor. It's job is to reverse the door when it runs into something on the way down but it will give this problem when it goes bad.

Door goes part way down; goes up before getting a 1/4 way down


If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is a sensor problem. If the door starts down and then reverses but the main light does not flash it is most likely the RPM sensor which is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor.

If when it does this your main light flashes 10 times it is the door sensors. Make sure they are aligned properly. If the main light doesn't flash 10 times then you most likely have a bad RPM sensor board. It is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor.

5 blinking lights


The code for 5 flashes is RPM sensor or motor overload. Did you remember to put the black plastic interrupter cup on the end of the motor shaft? Also check the small quick disconnect on the RPM sensor printed circuit board. Make sure it is connected securely.

Pressing remotes the door won't go u[


It sounds like you have the lock enguaged. When it is flashing it locks out all remote access. Hold the lock button for 3 seconds. The green light should go solid. On the issue of closing, it is most likely a safety eye issue. Hold down the wall button. If it closes it is the safety eyes. Holding the button overrides the safety eyes. Make sure that thelight on both eyes are both lit.

Motor moves 5 in" and reverses and light blinks 5 times


In the manual it says if you can hold the wall button down & door closes. You have a short in the wiring to the reciever eye. Try substituting some new bell wire in its place, or test the wires for continuity.
