Most likely one of your door sensors has been bumped and is misaligned. Check to see that the small light on each sensor is lit. The only thing that will cause the main light to flash 10 times when the door reverses is the sensors or the wiring to them. They must be pointed at one another for both lights to be on.

My craftman garage opener will not close. The up arrow blinks 3 times and the down arrow blinks 2 times. the button on the unit will not open or close it. It will move about a foot then reverse back.


try holding in the wall button the whole time. if the door closes, then you have an issue with the sensor wiring. if the wall button closes the door while holding in, then post a comment below and we will tell you next steps.

My garage will open just fine but when I push the button to close the lighrt blinks 3-5 times and then I have to press and hold the button until the door is completely closed. what may be the issue?


Sounds like the door thinks something is in the way. Verify the alignment of the photo sensor system, located at each side of the door, about 4 to 6 inches off of the floor.

How do you set the garage door opener for a 2004 toyota 4runner LTD?


You hold the remote close to the three buttons on the vehicle. You choose which button you want the remote to transmit to, and you hold it down. With your other hand, depress the garage door remote opener, and hold it very close to the 3-button assembly. Wait for the red L.E.D. light to blink slowly. If it does not blink slow, continue moving the remote around, until it does blink slow. When it starts to blink slowly, stop moving the remote around. Wait until the light starts blinking rapidly. When the light blinks rapidly, the process is complete.

Have to hold the push button inside my garage to close garage.


You have a door sensor problem. Make sure the sensors are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not blinking. Also check the wiring.

GARAGE DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES ON OWN LT BLINKS SEVERAL TIMES


Anytime a door opens and/or closes by itself I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.

If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door.

Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.

The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.
Or a remote in someone’s purse that gets the button pushed by other stuff in the purse.

The test is to disconnect the push button wires at the power unit. If the self operation stops you have located the problem. If you reconnect the wires and disconnect the wire at the wall button this will tell you if the problem is the wire or the button.

This can also interfere with remote controls

HOPE THIS HELPS
