Try looking in your user manual or on the internet about how to change the frequencies used by the garage door remote and reciever. I'm guessing it is picking up signals from some appliance on the same frequency, either in your house or nearby. Also, try nearby houses' remotes on your door– it could be them interfering with you.

Garage door opens randomly

Steve, If you have a remote door opener, change the code, as one of your neighbors may have their door using same code. Also make sure there is nothing hanging or blowing in front of sensor lights.

Door opens randomly on its own!

can you change the toggle switches in the remote and door controller to a different code than it is set on now. Like the two devices must match but hopefully the neighbor code for their door will then be different. Also can you change the frequency ?

Looking down at the sprocket. When it turns clockwise it is closing the door and when it turns counterclockwise it will be opening the door.

I have a LIftmaster garage door system that is less than 1 year old. I am experiencing problems with the inside garage door light coming and staying on throughout the day and night. I noticed this...

If you had this problem before changing the wall control and that made no difference I would suspect the logic board which controls the light. Problem here is the board is expensive. I would probably change to an LED or fluorescent lamp or remove the bulb entirely.

Chamberlain GDO light turns on randomly at any time of day or night. (Whisper Drive with Motion-Detecting Control Panel 935CB.)

If you don't have any puppies or strange animals running around your garage I would disconnect the wall control for a couple days. If your problem stops I would suspect that control. If you have a heated garage I would also make sure there is nothing that could be moving from the air movement from the furnace.

Somehow my garage door Sensors (at the bottom of door opening) had debris which caused the Sears Door to go down and then go back up. I carefully removed the debris and now the door is stuck in the down...

There isn't a way to bypass the remote. If you call out a door technician he can drill a hole in the door and use a tool to pull the release handle. They can then install an emergency release using the hole they drilled. This will prevent the problem you are having in the future which is not as uncommon as it may seem Every time you have a power outage you are unable to get into your garage.

Craftsman Garage Door not working, motor seems fine

I have similar jerkiness problem and have gone through all the nine yards of possible causes. The motor stops at random position and at random time. Even when I unhook the door from the carriage, it still showed this symptom. It started when I had one torsion spring broken. I replaced both torsion springs and adjusted for weight balance. Make sure the two cables windup properly along the thread of the pulley; Checked the photo eye sensors; checked/test capacitor; cleaned rpm sensor; adjusted all possible force settings; make sure limit switch at sound; re-programmed my remote just to check if the logic board somehow still work on this side and it did;
One important observation I have is that when I adjusted the carriage chain, I've noticed that the opener unit turns off and on as if there's a loose connection/contact. This I pursued more. The more I investigate, I spotted a "tiny" spark on one logic board soldering at the transformer footing as I **** the back panel (where the board is mounted) back and forth to simulate the on/off due to the loose contact observed earlier. This one solves everything! All I had to do is take the logic board out and re-solder that failed connection and Hooray - it fixed the problem!
Hope this helps someone with similar issues,

Canton, Mi
