SOURCE: Garage door will not open properly

You might have a broken spring. Check on the a the header above the door there should be a tube with a drum on each end and 2 springs (maybe one) towards the center. If one of the springs has a gap (1-2 inches) in it. If it does you will need to call a door company in your area. I recommend you replace both springs. If you need to get you cars out some times you can help the operator to lift the door by lifting the door while the operator is lifting the door. Be very careful not to get your fingers in a pinch point and be sure to lower the door the same way.

SOURCE: In following the Chevrolet Tahoe instruction to program a garage door opener, I am having problems with the system working. The codes are the rolling key type.

Press the outer 2 buttons untill the bink rate changes then release.

Press the button you want to train at the same time you hold down an unused button on one of your factory GDO remotes, hold untill flash rate changes.

Press learn button on GDO, press the button you just programmed in the Tahoe, should be programmed.

(Info should be in users manual under HomeLink.)

SOURCE: programming the garage door opener

Homelink Garage Door Opener Programming Procedure:

The procedure described below was successfully applied to a 2005 Jaguar S-Type.

To begin with, several attempts were made using the programming instructions contained in my Jaguars owners manual. Though the procedure described in the owners manual was straight-forward and understandable, I was unsuccessful in getting the vehicles remote to make my garage door opener function. The particular garage door openers I have are both made by Genie. Both openers utilize the Rolling Code feature.

To begin with, be sure to clear previous codes on your Jaguars garage door opener by first turning (rotating) the ignition key to the I position (first notch). Next, simultaneously hold button 1 (left most button) and button 3 (right most button) down until the middle buttons red light changes from continuous on to a rapid flash. This process takes approximately 20-25 seconds. What follows is a two part process. In the first part, get your Genie portable remote and hold it near (approximately 3 inches away from) your Jaguars garage door opener console buttons. Choose which button on your Jaguars remote you wish to dedicate to your Genie door opener and simultaneously press and hold your Genie opener button and your Jaguars opener button. The red light on your Jaguars center button (button #2) will light up and within 1-2 seconds will begin to flash rapidly. You have just completed part 1 of the two part process.

Part two: Now it is time to utilize the Learn function on your Genie garage door opener. Press the Learn button on your Genie garage door opener. The red LED adjacent to the Learn button will begin to flash. You now have 30 seconds in which to program your Jaguars opener button. Using the same button you just used in the part 1 procedure, press and hold the same button for several seconds. As before, your Jaguars red light in the middle button will light up and within 1-2 seconds, it will flash rapidly. Release the button you are programming. Now, here is the key piece of information! Once again, press and hold that same button. Once again, the center buttons red light will flash rapidly. Release your newly programmed button. This procedure proved successful in my application. Here is what has just happened. The first time you pressed your Jaguars remote button tells the Genie opener that it exists and that it is a viable candidate for making your life easier (opening the damn door). The second time you press your Jaguars remote button confirms to the Genies rolling code that your Jaguars signal is legitimate and is to be trusted from then on.

Garage door will not open & the little green light is not coming on - Model 139.53982SRT


Ok basic trouble shooting. Is it plugged in? by that I mean have you checked to see if it has power both in the garage and at the circuit box. Have you checked for tripped breakers.

If power is fine try to dirupt power to force a reset if there was an error code that was preventing the operation that may fix it. Finally is the door off track or bound so that the unit cannot open it.

I have a Craftman Garage Door Opener Mod#139.53650SRT. It closes completely then goes back up. I replaced the sensors @ the sides of the door to no avail. I have tried to adjust the up and down on the side...


I agree with the closing resistance may be set incorrectly, all openers have a safety feature that senses if something is keeping the door from closing, this is back force, you set the sensitivity at the back of the opener motor control, it is a little dial, reduce the setting just enough to stop the door from kicking back open when it closes, I had this very same problem with my craftsman and this adjustment fixed it.

Garage doors opens on its own, after being close for hours


Someone in your neighborhood may have the same garage door opener that you have and sharing the same code. Change your garage door opener code or buy a Genie Code Scrambler.

I have 2 lift master garage door openers that are producing errors when you hit the buttons to open 2 different doors. 1. I get error code 11 (sensor blocked or miswired)-there is nothing blocking...


If your garage door is up, and you break the beam (by walking through it, for example), you will get the "SENSOR WIRING INTERMITTENT CONNECTION ERROR CODE 1-4 SEE USER MANUAL". This is normal. Both of my Liftmaster 8550 openers do this. It's misleading, but this is what I've found to cause this error.

I have a craftsman 3/4 hp 315 mhz garage door opener model 13953990ds when ativating it to open it only moves 6 to 8" forward and back and stop. i have tried all steps in the manual can get it solved


If you've readjusted the opener, and it still isn't working, you need to have a trained door technician come out and adjust the tension on your springs. To determine this, pull the red release handle to disengage the opener from the door, and try to lift your door by hand. You should be able to move the door easily, and it should stay at the half open point without falling or rising. If the door is hard to move, excessively heavy to lift off the ground, or will not stay open, the door itself is the culprit. If the door is fine, the opener will need to be serviced.

My garage door opener is flashing a code 4 flashes then a pause then 1 flash then a pause then 1flash any ideas?


4 flashes is the code for door sensors slightly misaligned. The code you describe is not a normal trouble code. What is the door doing?

The small green LED light on garage door motor head out


That little green bulb just flickers when the logic board is receiving a radio signal and is also used to send a code to assist with diagnosis. It does not keep the opener from working. You say the door is 'stuck'. If it is stuck in the open position the trolley may be jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. If so, loosen the chain to relieve the pressure and the opener should run. When the door is closed locate the 'up limit' on the side of the motor unit and turn this 2 complete turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Then tighten the chain.
