Question about Building Materials

1 Answer

I have a Chamberlain motorlift ML700. The remote works fine for opening the gate, but doesn't close it. Resetting the remote didn't help. Any ideas? Thank you.

Some more details. With the push-botton, both opening and closing work fine. The issue is only with the remote. I have several remotes, and they all have the same issue.

    I found the answer, although I do not really understand the cause why it's like this: Unfortunately, after I reset the limits, the issue was still there. Finally, I found out myself what caused the problem. It was related to the new 24V-bulb I placed in the Motorlift MF700, after the old one was broken. The new one is a LED-lamp. It seems it disturbs the signal of the remote as long as the lamp burns. After a certain time, the light goes out and the remote works again. As soon the lamp was taken out the socket, the remote works again for opening and closing the gate.

My best guess is the closed limit switch is out of range or defective and telling the controls it is already closed.

Motor will not accept remote signal, cannot reprogram. If I manually force a connection across the terminal it all works.Any ideas?


check that the fault did not alter the limiting switch positions for the motor
it is possible that they are out of adjustment
other than that check for a reset button in the control box

Miracle one gate opener not working. Was work fine and lately not opening all the time. Now not at all. Looked and all fuses they are ok. System on light is off. only ligts on in control box are the...


Have you checked the fuses? They are small and can be difficult to see because of the thin wires. Check those first, especially the motor fuse on the lower left corner of the board.

Does you system use a wireless remote or keypad, or to open/close.

How to use 2 button remote for two mighty mule gate openers


I understanding that the chamberlin is a two button remote so as long as you have the same kind of recierver (a box hooked up in your operator that has dip switches,it recieves signals when the remote and it are set the same.) you should be able to use the two button remote on both machines. If not their is a reciever that is called multi-code and it is universal to work with all gate openers. the chamberlin remote you have will work with it.

Need to program my chamberlain #953CB from a working gate opener


the chamberlin remote only work with a chamberlin reciever, if you have this it will be a silver box that looks like diamond plate material inside you operator, take of the front cover on this box and you will see a black button that says program push and hold this button down then push your remote button down while holding it close to the box you will see a yellow led flash and then it is set. if you only have a single button remote you will only be able to set it to one operator.
