SOURCE: Remote Control closes garage door but does not open

It sounds like a case of your keypad losing signal strength enough that it cannot transmit through the closed door. If a new battery doesn't do the job a new keypad will.

SOURCE: garage door opening/closing problem

Could be a bad wall button or a smashed wire.
Anytime a door opens and/or closes by itself, or remotes work intermitantly I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button or a bad wall button.

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

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 / interference 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.

HOPE THIS HELPS

Most garage door operators (openers) have infrared safety "beams". The door won't close, even with a wired push button, if something is in the way.

My remote intermittenly opens/closes the garage door


You can find a free manual for your door opener at manualsonline .com You might want to look at how to program it and change the unit to a different frequency. You can sometimes get better response and eliminate interference. Also make sure your battery contacts in the remote are clean.

Door wont close with remot


Your door sensors may have been bumped and are no longer pointing at one another. Tweak them until the small light on each sensor is on and glowing steadily.

Garage Door Wont Close Craftsman 1/2 HP (1998)


What it is is the electric beams at the door are getting blinded buy the sun or out of line. They are the two black boxes on both sides of the door about a foot from the ground. Put a piece of card board in front of them not blocking the beam dut to block the sun. All that they are is safety beams for kids so they do not get hurt. If you have to move them to the top where the sun will not hit them. Sorry to say though you can not remove them all the way. Also make sure the lite on them is not blinking if so they are out of line.

Good Luck and Please Rate FixYa!

My sears garage door opener wont open or close the door


If you can get access to the back of your motor assembly on the ceiling and look where the wires are connected there should be a slide button that will have a list that will have you set the main unit to a position that will allow you to accept new remotes or reprogram for lost signal to existing remote. If all else fails there should be a phone number you can call listed on the unit and they can walk you through.
