Try removing the wall button and the two wires on the rear. Touch them together quickly and see if the opener works. If it does you have a bad wall control. If not you have either bad wiring or a bad logic board.

Owners Manual for Chamberlain Garage Door opener. Model 2265R


Unfortunately, the 2265R is not a Chamberlain supported model. The manuals for supported garage door openers are list here: http://www.chamberlain.com/parts-and-support/installation-manuals . The manual for the 2265 is here: http://www.chamberlain.com/CatalogResourcesV3/en-us/shared/files/tucmanuals/A2497M.PDF . There is also the 2265C: http://www.chamberlain.com/CatalogResourcesV3/en-us/shared/files/tucmanuals/A2512M.PDF .

It could be that the 2265R is a refurbished model. Then the manual for the 2265 garage door opener will give you the the correct manual.

In my experience, when the garage door goes down partway and then reverses completely, the problem is something breaking the light beam between the safety sensors. This can be a piece of grass or the shadow from the door when one or both sensors are getting full sun. If the problem is some weed getting pushed into the sensor range, simply cut the nearby grass shorter. To check if the problem is a shadow, try getting a couple of people to stand near (but outside) of the garage door. They should be positioned to cast a shadow on the sensors. If the door closes properly when the button is pressed, then the solution is to wait for a slightly different sun position to close the door or to continue to hold the button on the wall panel.

I hope this helps.

My liftmaster will open with the remote but to close the door, we have to hold down the wall unit. It starts to close, jerks to a stop, then we have to press and hole the button and it closes.


Hi, it is probably the safety photo beams out of alignment or not working, when this happens the garage opener goes into 'dead man' operating mode, ie you need to keep the button pressed for the door to operate.

Button in the garage works, but remote will not open or close garage door?


That button on the wall is called a wall control. If you have a wall control with 3 buttons and the light in the control is flashing you need to press the lock button and hold for 3 seconds. Make sure the battery in your remote is good.

If the wall button will operate the door up but none of the devices do then look at the wall button. Find the lock button and push it for 2 seconds and then try the remotes again. This is your vacation lock. You can get a manual at chamberlain.com. Now if the door does not open or close with the remotes you can reprogram them. Press the colored learn button on the motor head and then press the button on the remote. Repeat for each remote. If they fail to program you will need a new logic board. Thanks BB

Liftmaster pro 1/2 hp wont shut in one button press


You have a door sensor problem. Either your main light bulb is burned out or you don't have one in your opener. The clicking sound you hear is the relay for the light. Both of the door sensors should have a small light that is lit. Tweak them until they are.

1.3HP CRAFTSMAN CHAMPION GARAGE DOOR OPENER-NEW IN 2004


Well sounds like its a pressure setting. you said you open the door by hand? Was it easy to do? Ask your self this can a 15 year old kid open it and close it? If so then it sounds like its a presure setting There should be two blue slots on your opener with numbers 1-9 says up and down force. Turn the up force towards the bigger number. Just a little bit. But before you do that as the other guy stated make sure that your cables and springs are working. Spring depending on your doors can be in three places but we going to assume you has the most common set up so look over the top of your door (with it closed) you should eb able to see a tube running across there. and somewhere in the in middle a set of spring look at the spring to make sure that you dont see any of the tube showing in the springs. Becare not to touch the spring as they are under a lot of stress.
