Question about Building Materials

My Lift Master is closed with the remote when we leave home and then might be open when we return. A few nights ago, the garage opened by itself when my wife was home along. What is wrong?

The most common cause of this problem is a bad wall control the wiring going to it. You can eliminate both temporarily by removing the wire at terminal 1 on the back of the motor unit. The wiring sometimes is shorted by the staples the installer uses. The wall control gets used a lot.

Too much tension on the door can make the "brain" respond by opening the door, thinks something is in the way.... check for binding tracks or wheel guides, loose bolts, dry chain, tension on cables or springs ( be careful here), misaligned sensors....

Lift master formula I will not close, only goes half way down, but fully opens. Worked fine until my wife closed the door on the car, after that it would fully close


I had this problem as well with the door opening just fine but was not closing when using the remotes or when breifly pressing the wall mounted control. The door would close only when using the wired wall mount control. I have experienced this problem with other garage door openers I've had in my previous homes and it was always caused by sensors at the bottom of the door tracks being either misaligned or the lenses were dirty. In this case, and it was just a moment ago today, I simply cleaned the sensor lenses and then the door began to function properly. Give it a try.

Liftmaster 3265M Garage Door Opener opens on its own


Sounds like one of your neighbors may have recently replaced their own garage door opener and it coincidentally operates in the same frequency band as yours. One of them may also have purchased a new car and recently programmed it to open their door, but it inadvertantly interferes with yours. Depending on the quality of your door opener's receiver and how old it is, some receivers are not as good as others in their ability to discriminate against similar transmitted codes in the same frequency band. When the door opens by itself immediately go outside and see if a neighbor's door has just been opened (or closed) at the same time. Does your door open by itself at similar times during day? Like when a neighbor might be leaving or returning home from work? When someone uses a remote to close their garage door when leaving home, they (and the remote) are usually located in their driveway, but when they use it to open the door upon arriving home, they might be located right in front of your house.

My lift-master garage opener works just fine from wall button, but will only open but not close from any remotes (from car or original remotes) If I open it with remote and immediately close with wall...


We have the same model and similar difficulties. We were told it's a bad antena. Not sure if there is anything we can do about this. Sometimes it works with the remotes, sometimes not. Always works with the wall switch, because that's wired.

Lift-master 2000SDR remotes will open but not close garage door. Same problem with all clickers and even those programmed into the cars. What could this be and better yet, how do I fix it?


Lift-Master 2000SDR opener. Opener generally works fine from the remotes. However, first time in the morning in cooler weather, it will start to close and the reverse and the lights blink. I have checked the senors - appear to be aligned properly. I have lubed the gear and used garage door spray on the rollers and hinges at the proper places. To close the door when this happens, I have to hold the wall button.
