Remotes don't work (3)

One of my garage doors does not open with the remotes, three total. Just started over the past week. No problem with the mounted push button in the garage, except for the fact that the light is blinking continuously?

Did you inadvertantly hit the "vacation lock" button on the Mounted push button? This will cause the remotes not to work. Try hitting the button again, and then see if the blinking goes to solid green.

Good Luck

    Here are instructions for vacation mode:
    If you have a three buttom wall panel, one of the small buttons should be the lock button, push this button and hold it for a couple of seconds until the LED on the wall panel stops blinking.

On the Liftmaster remote control, there are two smaller push buttons to the left of the large button which opens the door. What are the two buttons used for?


You could program these buttons to operate other garage door openers or to control other devices that work on the same frequency. http://www.liftmaster.com/consumerweb/products/pflHomeConvenience.htm has light controllers that let you turn on or off a light in your home with the garage door opener. You can easily program one of the small buttons to control the lighting system instead of the main button. (Thus the light would be controlled independently of the door opening and closing.)

Single button remotes can be purchased but currently most garage door openers are sold with the 3 button versions. http://www.liftmaster.com/consumerweb/products/pflRemoteControl.htm

I hope this helps.

(In my household, there are 4 garage door openers installed. When three of the door openers were on the same frequency, we could have had each one respond to a different button on a three-button remote. Now two are on a separate frequency so only two buttons have been programmed on the various remotes. (One group opens the house and workshop; the other opens the house and barn.))

Make sure the green light in the wall control is not flashing. That locks out the remote. If it is press and hold for 3 seconds the lock button on the wall control. It could just be that your remote has failed.

Factory garage door opener


If this is the 3 button HomeLink Transmitter usually centered overhead above the rear-view mirror, this should work:

While the engine is turned off follow these steps to program up to three channels:
1. Decide which one of the 3 channels (one of the 3 HomeLink buttons) you want to program.
2. Press & hold the desired button through step 3.
3. When the HomeLink indicator light begins to blink slowly(this may take up to 30 seconds), hold your hand-held garage door remote about 1 to 3 inches away from the buttons & then press and hold the button on your garage door remote. Continue to hold both buttons until the indicator light on the HomeLink begins to flash rapidly(this may take up to 90 seconds).

If it still doesn't work, make sure the batteries in your garage remote are not weak, and try again moving the remote back & forth and left & right or turning it upside down while programming.

Also note HomeLink will not work with older garage door openers, especially not with ones manufactured before April 1st 1982.

sounds like condensation in the receiver window of the garage unit rather than the remotes. Try running a hair dryer over the area where the signal is received to get rid of any moisture and try using the remote from across the road or at the drive entrance.to check your success

There have been a few complaints about this on some of the other forums and the seals arn;t all that good

My garage door opener only works from a couple feet away


On the rear of your motor unit just to the left of all those white wires you will see a small light. If this light is flashing randomly it is normal. If it is flashing rapidly it is an indication of interference or you have keyed your remote. It really sounds like interference and you will have to do some more checking things.

315 mhz is the radio frequency and you cannot change that. In fact if you purchase a new opener you will get that same frequency.

Your opener was made by Chamberlain Mfg. Co. that also makes Liftmaster. That may be where the confusion comes in.
