Sensor must show steady light to close circuit and let opener work. If aligned, then there is a loose or broken wire. Try reaiming first to get steady light. Then check all wires . Another way to test and prove that is the issue is if u hold down the wired button at ur back door and the opener closes, then it is sensor issue. Good luck.

Craftsman 1/2hp garage door opener works fine to open door but to close I have to hold button down. If not, door won't move and lights flash 10 times.


10 flashes mean sensors are obstructed... something is in the way of the door or they are not facing each other. Clear the obstruction or realign the door and it will work.

Garage door opens about 4 inches, stops, then goes back down. No flashing lights at all. One sensor light is green, the other is a steady yellow. What's the issue?


something may be obstructing the door, so pull the red emergency release handle and try to pull the door manually.if you cant move it manually, call for professional help

make sure all snow and debris are clear of the area where the door closes

if there are no obstructions, manually set the adjustment controls on the back side of the opener panel. weather can sometimes change the amount of force needed to open/close. adjust the setting with a screwdriver to no more than 260 degrees, about 3/4 of a turn

Light flashes on gargage door and it will not close, but it opens


Maybe it's the safety device that prevents the door closing if there is an obstruction. Many of these have a reflector mounted near the floor on one side and an infrared light on the other side. If either end it obstructed, the door won't close.

This is not a sensor issue, I have a similar problem, sensors work fine, garage door is still fully functional, all operations, including safety sensors work properly, just the overhead lights flash. I suspect there was damage to the power board due to a power surge, going to order a replacement to see if it works, will let you know how it goes.

The only thing that will cause the main light to flash 10 times and the door to reverse to the open position is a sensor problem. Make sure the light on each sensor is on and not flickering ever so slightly. Make sure they are not moving when the door starts to close. Lights on sensors should not blink. One light should stay on constantly and the other sensors light should go off when you block the sensors.

Anytime the main light flashes 10 times and the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. If the transmitting sensor light is blinking it is bad.

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.
