How do I fix the close feature on my garage door opener?

When closing the garage door, instead of just pushing and releasing the button on the wall-mounted opener, I must hold the button until the door closes all the way.

Your electric eye sensors are not aligned, or not working or you have a loose wire or broken wire to them or a shorted wire on the sensors.

Linear garage door opens and closes when close to unit about 10 '


when the door stops moving when going down, pull the emergency release handle on the door and then push the door closed by hand. Once it's closed push the emergency handle back so it engages the chain. Open the door and close it a few times to make sure it closes all the way with the motor.

My Craftsman garage door will not close, only a few inches at a time


have a problem which returns every year when outdoor temperatures drop close to freezing. garage door will open only a few inches, then stops. I can close it and try opening it again... same result. After five or six such attempts it typically will open. Interestingly, when I push the switch button mounted on the interior wall of my garage and keep it pushed, the door will open, until I release the button at which point it stops opening.

Door goes down and when it stops at botton, it turns and goes back up ??? Need adjusting ..How can I adjust???


Adjust the position of the door by using the black and purple buttons. Black moves the door UP (open) and purple moves the door DOWN (close)
Setting the up position: 1. Press and hold the black button until the LED starts flashing slowly, then release. 2. Push and hold the black button until the door reaches the desired UP (open) position 3. Push the door control or programmed remote control. This sets the Up (open) position and begins closing the door. 4. Immediately when the door begins to close press and release the black or purple button. This will stop the door Setting the Down position: 5. Push and hold the purple button until the door reaches the desired DOWN (Closed) position. 6. Once the door is closed, If there appears to be too much pressure on the door, you may toggle the door back and forth using the black and purple buttons to reach the desired closed position. 7. Push the door control or programmed remote control. This sets the Down (closed) limit and the door should open.

The door opens when i push to open but when i push to close it starts to close until i stop pushing the button. When i release the button the garage door opens back and clicks 10 times


Check the door sensors. They must be pointed at one another and the small light on each one must be lit and not flickering. Tweak them a bit. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have either a bad sensor or the wiring to them is shorted or broken.

Check your door sensors. The need to be pointed at one another and make sure the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a bit. If you can't get both lights to come on one of your sensors has failed.

Keypad on garage door will only close if i punch in my code it won't close by hitting the enter button the temp here is minus 40 does that effect the keypad chamberlain 3/4 belt drive


Try this procedure to reactivate this feature.

Opener can be closed by pressing only the ENTER button if the One Button Close feature has been activated. This feature has been activated at the factory. To activate or deactivate this feature press and hold buttons 1 and 9 for 10 seconds. The keypad will blink twice when the One Button Close is activated. The keypad will blink 4 times when One Button Close is deactivated.

Garage Door opened but will not close. I opened


I think the trolley has jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. Remove the bolt and then run the door until it is closed. With the door closed locate the 'up limit' control on the side of the motor unit. Turn this 2 turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Replace the bolt.

Automatic garage door


Hello,

There should be 2 sensors on the bottom of your door on the inside, 1 on the right side and 1 on the left side.
These sensors serve 1 purpose to send a beam or reflection to each other.
If something is blocking this reflection or is in front of the sensor the door will always come back up.
It is a safety feature so nothing or no one gets hurt when the door is closing!
