I would replace the reciever if the door doesn't respond at times, if it shuts down once it starts moving you need a new motor, this repair would most likely exceed the cost of the whole opener unit if done by a professional service repair person, if u do it is much cheaper.

Craftsman garage door opener. Why won't it pair with remotes?


If the remotes operate with no problem it's not the board. once you've paired the remote to your home link in the car, you have to go back and hit the learn button on the motor housing unit then go back and hit the home link button you just paired. Keep in mind when you hit the home link button, you should with a firm 3 second push. If that doesn't work it's one of two things. First is all three buttons may have been programmed on the visor not allowing you to reprogram. You would have to wipe out the programming by holding the first and last buttons simultaneously until the light flashes rapidly. Then start over. Secondly it could be the radio frequency. Depending upon the year of the vehicle you have and the opener you have there's a difference in the megahertz. I hope it's as easy as my first suggestion. GL!

Garage door openers can sometimes be triggered by (illegally) boosted CB or ham radios.
A passing vehicle pumping out high power might open the door (an acquaintance did this years ago annoying the neighborhood) and the 30 minute delay may serve to protect against unwanted opening of the door.

I have a Craftsman Garage Door opener model # 139.53674SRT2. It is sporadically going up and down to varying degrees. The LED indicator on the back is constantly blinking. If I trip the motion sensor it...


Rapid blinking of that LED indicates it is receiving a signal. Make sure you don't have an old remote somewhere that is sending a signal and that your other remotes do not have a stuck switch. Remove the batteries and check that light.

The cl;icker works to open/shut door inside garage but not out side...signal weak...new batteries...whaT TO DO


Some things to check.

Limited range of your remote controls could be related to radio frequency interference that comes from something in your home or in the surrounding environment. Certain electrical devices can radiate interference; this could be almost anything that is plugged into an electrical outlet.



Please keep in mind that the device can be brand new, or can be an item that has been in use for quite a while. Also, the item may continue to function properly as far as you are able to tell. The only problem with the item may be that it has started to broadcast the interference, with no other symptoms noted.



Some devices are more likely to generate interference than others. This includes TV cable, cable amplifiers, surge protectors, fluorescent lights, battery charging devices (power tools, golf carts, etc.), anything that utilizes a timer (sprinkler systems, lights, alarm systems, etc.), and a myriad of others. If the problem seems sporadic, we can safely assume that the device responsible for the interference is only being operated during these times. Again, please keep in mind that the age of the device does not determine if it is capable of broadcasting unwanted interference. Any electrical device can be the source of the problem.

How do I setup the homelink feature in my 2000 chevy impala with my garage opener?


First clear it pushing the 2 outer buttons for about 20 seconds till the lite blinks.
Then here is the weird part take the old remote that you use for your garage door opener and hold it next to the home link in the car.
Push the button on your old remote then the button on the home link. the home link will flash slow then quickly (about 10 sec).
Now go push the learn button on the main door unit then back to the car and push the home link again for 2 seconds.

Having trouble setting garage door opener to my 2004 trailblazer


1. Position vehicle within 10 feet of garage door- engine off and battery on.

2. Press/hold 2 outside buttons of Homelink transceiver until red indicator starts flashing rapidly, then release button. This should take about 20 seconds. This erases any previously learned codes.

3. Press/hold remote control and press/hold button of Homelink transceiver simultaneously. Slowly move remote control from 5" away to 1" away from Homelink transceiver. Release both buttons after red indicator starts blinking rapidly. This should take about 5 seconds. I discovered that the Homelink in my TL is a bit faulty because it took much longer to accomplish this than when programming the Homelink in my MDX. My TL's Homelink may "unlearn" it's code in the future and the needed proximity of the TL to the garage door may be much closer than desired until I get the Homelink fixed.

4. Press training button on garage door opener unit until the indicator lights illuminates- this should be immediate.

5. Within 30 seconds press/hold the Homelink button for 2-3 seconds until the red indicator starts flashing rapidly. Repeat a second time. It should now be programmed. Check it by pressing the programmed button on the Homelink receiver.

6. When programming more than 1 garage door opener unit, disconnect power from unit before programming more units. By not doing this the programmed unit could conflict with the unprogrammed units commands.

Problems:

1. The Battery in the garage door remote may be too weak to program Homelink. However, the battery may be strong enough to operate the garage door. One of my remote controls had a weak battery- my system was installed today, fresh out of the box. I had to use the second remote control for the programming of Homelink on my 2 vehicles.

2. Antenna on the garage door opener unit must be hanging down, fully extended.
