Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn’t work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the 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 signal.

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.

One of the sensor is on green color the other is on red color and I can't open or close?


sensors need to be aligned with one another , the one that's red now is the receiver and the one green now is transmitter
it is very common for mounting brackets to get bumped and be out of alignment , a little twist and eye balling it and it will work once again

Internal fan in refrigrator dont work & noise of door alarm repeat every minute without door opening


My best guess is the 'door closed' sensor is not working correctly, to verify, open the fridge door, find the button the would be pushed when you close the door (often on the hinge side). Push the button with your finger and if the light goes out and the fan starts up, it needs adjusting. If the light does not go out, it needs replacing.

Good luck.

Stop working - shut him self off


If it is a Hitachi--model number please? The Green LED's are each connected to a voltage source---red one should be on all the time and the others you watch to see if one goes out before the rest or dims after the rest of them are out.

This is a diagnostic tool--points to which voltage is failing and then you follow where it goes to.

Door sensors have nothing to do with door opening. Only closing. It sounds like you have a bad gear in the motor unit. Remove the cover and it will be obvious if the gear is bad.

My mom & I each have a Craftsman garage door opener at our respective homes & live @ 15 minutes apart. Our openers are about 13 to 14 yrs old. The past two yrs. we've both had the same problem. ...


If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. Make sure both lights on the sensors stay on and don't flicker while the door is moving and the sensors are firmly attached so they don't move. Tweak them just a bit.

Bissell little green machine will not spray


The Pumps on these go bad after a couple of months. They rust and will sometimes spray and other times not then eventually not work at all. If your a handy man pull the top off it and remove the pump motor and replace it yourself. The part number is 603-5029 you can put this number in google shipping and get it to your door for about $15 and replace it yourself or have a friend do it. Ebay has tons of them once again just put in the part number and a list of them will come up.
Thanks and have a good one
Sincerely, CRTN

If the lights in the door sensors do not light you have either a bad logic board or bad wiring to the sensors. Replacing the logic board is usually the cure.
