    Hi Bruce J Dunbar, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Does the door start closing at all when you hit the button? Does the light on the motor flash when you try to close it?

Make sure that the safety sensors are properly lined up. If not the door will open but not close with the remote.

Why won't Chamberlain 1040-6 garage door opener open or close?


In addition to the ANT suggestion, are you able to open/close the door with the button first? And then check the 12-volt battery in the remote control.

Work-around: Modern cars have the ability to learn the motor's code. Then I use the built-in openers on my cars to open the garage door as work-around. All you have to do is initiate the learning process by pressing a button on the motor, and then keep pressing your built-in opener's button until the light becomes steady. Try to let your car stay as close to the motor as possible.

Good luck!

Power window won't go down but you can here the motor running in the door


You can remove the door handles and power window switches and the screws in the door pad and push up on the pad and it will come out of the track and then you can see the motor and replace the part yourself. Hope this helps.

My Liftmaster garage door won't open or close. I hit the button and it make a sound and clicks but won't close


Remove the cover and check the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor. It will be obvious if it is bad. Tell me - if it won't open how do you know it won't close?

I have a 3/4 horsepower liftmaster garage door opener, both the remote and the wall button won't close the garage door but both will open the garage door. however, the garage door will close if I hold...


If when closing the door it reverses to the open position and the main light flashes 10 times it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the small light on each sensor is on and not flickering ever so slightly. (check closely) Tweak them a little even though they may seem to be okay. Check for 5vdc between terminals 2 and 3 on the rear of the motor unit. If there is no voltage or if it is greater than 6vdc the logic board is bad.

Garage door opened fine but now when I try to close it, all I hear is a buzzing sound for 3 sec., light comes on but door won't go down.


Your trolley may be jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. If so, loosen the chain enough to relieve the strain on the chain and then run the opener until the door is closed. While the door is closed locate the 'up limit' control on the side of the motor unit. Turn this control 2 full turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Tighten the chain.

My nephew kept opening and closing my garage door, now the door won't open with the opener and I can lift it by hand. I tried pulling the cord to move it back to electric but it won't work... any...


The motor has a thermal protector that will cause the motor to quit when it gets hot. If you let it cool off it will automatically reset and should work again.

Whirlpool quiet partner I soap dispenser won't close


Hi


Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these.


Hope this helps...

Opener opened fine from the wall and stopped


Check to see if the trolley is jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. If so, loosen the chain enough to ease the tension on the trolley and run the motor until the door closes. While the door is closed locate the 'up limit' control on the side of the motor unit and turn it 2 complete turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Tighten the chain.

Chamberlain Lift Master Pro Formula 1 only makes click sound


Is the door stuck in the open position? If so the trolley is probably jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. Loosen the chain enough to free the trolley and then run the opener until the door is closed. While the door is closed locate the 'up limit' on the side of the motor unit and turn this control 2 complete turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Tighten the chain.

Garage door opener


Pop open the cover and check for loose wiring. Also check to see if the capacitor is still good that powers the motor.
