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?

Re: remotes don't work (3)

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

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.

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 check your success

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.

Liftmaster remotes will not work nor will our car

Make sure you have the model number off your motor unit and call 800-528-5880. This is technical support for Chamberlain Mfg. Co. who makes the Liftmaster. If your unit is as new as you make it sound I cannot imagine the door company not supporting you. It will also help if you can be near your opener when you call.
