Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a sears garage door opener that loses its remote control setting, apparently at random.The remote controls don't seem to be the problem and I can manually reset the head as per owners manual.

The wall switch works always, even when the remote code is lost. Resetting with a remote control while pressing the "reset" button works fine, but the setting only lasts a few days before I have to resort to resetting, again. The wall switch light blinks when the coding fails.

Door opens randomly on its own!


can you change the toggle switches in the remote and door controller to a different code than it is set on now. Like the two devices must match but hopefully the neighbor code for their door will then be different. Also can you change the frequency ?

There is no way to change that radio frequency it is set by the government. Sears service technicians have an instrument to help them locate the interference that causes this type problem.

Sometimes the door opens randomly by itself. I haven't pressed any remote to make this happen. How can I prevent this from occurring?


This usually happens with either a bad wall control or the wiring to the control. Staples used to hold the wires sometimes cuts through the insulation and causes the door to open.

Plug the appliance control into a 120 Volt outlet.

Press and release the "learn" button on the appliance control. The learn indicator light will glow for 30 seconds.

Within 30 seconds press and hold the button on the hand-held remote.

Release the remote control push button. Code setting is now complete.

My garage door opener remote will not open the door. Changed the batteries and tried a new remote but no luck. The control on the wall that is hard wired to the opener still works.


Make sure the light in the wall control is not blinking rapidly. If it is press and hold the lock button for 3 seconds and release.

Check the LED on the back of the motor unit. If it is flickering rapidly then you have outside interference. Random flickering is normal.

If this is not the case it sounds like your receiver has failed. It is part of the logic board.

Garage door remote control signal problem


On the rear of the motor unit just to the left of all those white wires you will find a small LED. Random flashing is normal but if it is flashing rapidly it shows some type of interference. If this isn't happening then the most common thing is a logic board going bad.

Door opens randomnly


If you find it does stop when you remove the battery from a remote then the switch is stuck on. But most commonly this is caused by a bad wall control or the wiring going to it. You can remove the control from the wall and then disconnect the wiring on the back. Remember which wire goes where. You can also eliminate the possibility of bad wiring by removing the wire from terminal #1 on the rear of the motor unit. This should help you by process of elimination.

Door won't open


Unfortunately storms do bad things so door openers sometimes. It has most likely gotten to your logic board. You can remove that board and look for burnt or missing traces of the print. Random flashing of that LED is normal.

I have 2 sears door opener the remote not workinng we re set the coadswill not open door


FIRST CHECK TO SEE IF THE LOCK/VACATION BUTTON ON THE WALL CONTROL HAS BEEN ACTIVATED. THE LED ON THE WALL CONTROL WILL BE FLASHING. - SIMPLE SOLUTION PUSH THE LOCK BUTTON AND HOLD FOR 2 SECONDS TO TURN OFF LOCK FUNCTION.

SECOND TRY TO REPROGRAM THE REMOTES TO THE UNIT - THEY WILL SOMETIMES LOSE MEMORY IN AN ELECTRICAL STORM.

IF REPROGRAMMING DOESN’T HELP TRY REPLACING THE BATTERIES IN THE REMOTES AND THEN REPROGRAM.

HOPE THIS HELPS
