Some things you might check. Release the door from the opener and operate it by hand. Does it operate smoothly? Is it heavy? There is a drive gear just in front of the motor. Make sure it isn't stripped.

The light flashing when you press the button on the remote is normal. Watch that light when you are not pressing the button and see if it is sending a code. If so it will flash a number of times and then pause and then flash again.

Some door chimes of this type are designed with dual capability so that pressing the front door button produces the full Westminster chime and pressing the back door button produces a single chime. Your wiring may have gotten reversed inadvertently during the changeover

Garage door programming doesn't work


try resetting the homelink system by holding down the first and last buttons at the same time until the light flashes rapidly on your visor. this could take up to a min. then at the same time press whichever button you want to program on the visor and the garage door remote button at the same time until the light on the visor flashes rapidly.that could take up to a min. after that is complete you need to go and push the learn code button on the back of the openers unit, then go and push and hold the button on the visor you just programmed until you hear a click or you see the light flash on your opener unit. after that try using your homelink. note there is about a 3 second delay when using homelink. you need to push and hold the button until you see the door operate.

Check the sensors in the doorway. They should both have a small light that is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a little. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have bad sensors.

Sounds like a problem with the safety photocells, to confirm locate the where the safety input is on the opener and bridge out the terminals ( not the supply voltage terminals) if the door then closes the photocells are the problem.

The LED flashing 5 times is the code for "RPM sensor or motor overload". Usually if it is the RPM sensor - which is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor - it will run a few inches and then reverse. I doubt very much it is the motor. I would pull the logic board and check for loose or missing traces on the printed circuit. Especially if you have had any electrical storms or power surges.

FRONT DOOR LOCKED


First try to hold down 'end of cycle' for 3 seconds, try door after a minute or so after hearing a click, power shd be on. If not:

To Manually unlock the door lock system:

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about 1/4 inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened.
