Garage Door Remote - red light remains on

I have model 3BM 0372FC garage remote. For the last four months the red light stays on and my garage door does not open. I have replaced the batteries twice. Last night when this occurred again, verizon has been working in the neighborhood placing Fios. Maybe this could be the problem

I am frustrated and need some advice.

    Fios is fiber optic and will not interfere with your opener. Are you saying the red light on your hand held remote is staying on? Who is the manufacturer of your opener?

It sounds like you have a bad switch in your remote. Take the cover off and check it out.

How to get my garage door to open all the way?


Three blinking lights & door won't close by Candi
(Winston-Salem, NC)
Garage door will not open and close with remotes. Three blinking lights occur when we try to close door. What does this mean? It is a Linear unit.

I will assume you mean that your garage door will open with your remote but will not close. It should close if you press and hold the wall control button until the door is fully closed.

If that is the case, the 3 blinking lights indicate that your garage door's infrared safety beams are not properly aligned.

1) Check that the operator has power. The green lights on the sender and receiver should be lit.

2) If the receiver's green light is on, but the red light is off, the receiver has power but is not detecting the infrared beam from the sender. The red light might flash when the beam is partially detected. This can be caused by
mis-alignment or something blocking the beam.

Adjust the safety beam sender and receiver while watching the receiver's red light (stay out of the beam while aligning it). When the red light stays on, the beam is aligned and your garage door should operate normally.

NOTE: If the receiver's red light remains off, check for:

1) Dirt on the receiver's lens,

2) Sunlight shining into the receiver's lens,

3) A short in the safety beam wiring (from staples or at the operator terminals).

Garage Master 1/3 HP 1997 Door Working, not responding to Remote


I have the exact same situation, except my model (139.53607) is older than yours and does not even have an LED. Remotes only works after after shop light goes off (5 minutes or so), but wall button works fine. Did call Sears Service and the tech told me the logic board is probably shot. Don't want to waste money on service call so I'll probably have to buy a completely new unit in the Spring and go through the winter without the use of a remote.

Door opens on it own and light blinks


  • Stuck remote control button. Check all remotes. check LED on receiver.
  • Staples around Multi-Function Control Panel bell wire could be cutting into that wire. Remove wires from opener and test. Replace staples causing intermittent short.
  • Multi-Function Control Panel could have sticking door control push bar. Remove wires from control panel and test. Replace control panel if defective.

Garage Door opens by itself


Your garage door springs may be out of balance. Try this test: Remove power from the opener motor. Pull the red release rope so that the door is detached from the openers drive. Lift open the door by hand- it should open all the way freely. Next, pull the door back down, stopping it about chest-high. It should remain where you stopped it. IIf the door is difficult to move, or does not stay half open, the springs need replacement or adjustment.
