There is a thermal cut out in the motor, usually the motor must cool before the opener will operate again. If the opener only operates 3 times it must be heating up too quickly.
First you opener is only made to do your job for you, which is opening and closing the door. If the door does not operate properly manually the opener will not operate properly.
When the door is disconnected from the opener it should lift easilly, it should basically stay at whatever point you let go of it (midway and fully open) and it should close without slamming down. It does not matter what size the door is!!! If it does not something is wrong with your springs and the door can be VERY DANGEROUS!!
With that being said it sounds more like a static lock-up possibly a loose ground or even a circuit problem in the home.

Most residential garage door openers have a max. amount of cycles they can run per hour. Thus the difference between a residential opener which only needs to be opened a few times a day vs. a commercial opener which needs to open 10-20 times and hour. This could be your problem, you may be running too many cycles too soon. This would explain why it seems to work again after unplugging the power. You're resetting the unit. Hope this helps.

The light on the Garage door blinks but doesn't stay on.


Three blinking lights & door won't close by Candi
(Winston-Salem, NC)
Garage door will not open and close with remotes. Three blinking lights occur when we try to close door. What does this mean? It is a Linear unit.
I will assume you mean that your garage door will open with your remote but will not close. It should close if you press and hold the wall control button until the door is fully closed.
If that is the case, the 3 blinking lights indicate that your garage door's infrared safety beams are not properly aligned.
1) Check that the operator has power. The green lights on the sender and receiver should be lit.
2) If the receiver's green light is on, but the red light is off, the receiver has power but is not detecting the infrared beam from the sender. The red light might flash when the beam is partially detected. This can be caused by
mis-alignment or something blocking the beam.
Adjust the safety beam sender and receiver while watching the receiver's red light (stay out of the beam while aligning it). When the red light stays on, the beam is aligned and your garage door should operate normally.

NOTE: If the receiver's red light remains off, check for:
1) Dirt on the receiver's lens,
2) Sunlight shining into the receiver's lens,
3) A short in the safety beam wiring (from staples or at the operator terminals).

Problems with door


Check your door sensors. Make sure the small light on each one is lit and not flickering ever so slightly. Tweak them a bit.

Lift-master 2000SDR remotes will open but not close garage door. Same problem with all clickers and even those programmed into the cars. What could this be and better yet, how do I fix it?


Lift-Master 2000SDR opener. Opener generally works fine from the remotes. However, first time in the morning in cooler weather, it will start to close and the reverse and the lights blink. I have checked the senors - appear to be aligned properly. I have lubed the gear and used garage door spray on the rollers and hinges at the proper places. To close the door when this happens, I have to hold the wall button.

Professional series, lift master 1/3 hp, the remotes will not operate door but door will operate from wall pad


Check to see if the small light in the wall pad is blinking. If so press and hold the button with the lock icon for 3 seconds.

If this isn't the case your receiver may have failed. The wall button works without the receiver;

I would remove the logic board and look for loose or missing traces on the printed circuit board.

Garage Door won't close


It sounds like the door sensors have been bumped or somehow gotten misaligned. Tweak them until the light on each one is lit and not blinking. They must be pointed at one another.
