If you mean the door will not close unless you hold the button you need to check the door sensors. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them to get the lights both on. If that doesn't get the lights on you probably have a bad sensor.

I have no owners manual. how do i program the garage door opener


Okay, first step is to clear any preprogramed doors or gates, engine must be off, press and hold the two outside buttons until the display confirms the operation (20 sec). this next step you will need the transmitter for the door you are programing, pick a button of the three you want to program, place the transmitter next to button and you will push them both at the same time and release, note the transmitter or hand held garage door opener what ever you call it, i dont want to confuse you ,when i say transmitter i mean the garage door opener, this must be close to buttons 1 inch at least, after you puhed and release both buttons at the same time then you are done. to program the other buttons just hold the next opener near the button and push both buttons, you dont need to hold the outside buttons again unless you want to erase all programing, good day let me know how it works.

Our garage door will open with the remote, but will not close unless we hold the button down


If when the door is closing it reverses and the main light flashes 10 times it is a door sensor problem. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a little.

My garage door won't close unless I hold the main button down in the garage. As soon as it closes it opens up again unless I press the button quickly. I can open it up using the remote, but cannot close it...


your garage door has saftey sensors at the door
these are photo eyes
in the owners manuel that came with the opener
that has pictures in it which would help
the photo eyes need to be clear of debri and aimed at each other with no obstruction
there are leds on each sensor and when aimes properly they should be light if i remember correctly
if you can not get them to light then you may have to replace the sensors

Check your down limit switch and even your up one too almost sounds like one is stuck one way or the other.

Garage door will not open


The light flashing 5 times is the code for RPM sensor or motor overload. The RPM sensor is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor. I would really doubt it is a motor problem unless you have been operating the opener enough that the thermal overload protector has shut it down. It will start running again as soon as it's cooled off.

My garage door wont go down.I habe to hold the switch down but if i let it go the door will go up again.


I have a Liftmaster garage door that won't go down unless you press and hold the wall button. The sensor lights are both on. The green light on the unit flashes unless I press the reset button. As soon as you press the wall button it flashes again and the door won't go down unless you hold the button the whole time. The remote wont' make it go down either. It begins to sometimes and retracts, but sometimes the light bulb just flashes (like it is obstructed). I tried replacing the wall switch and that did nothing. Help!

Programming kepad for Sears Craftsman Garagedoor opener 1/2 hp


The only procedure I have ever followed is to press the learn button and then enter the code, and not do anything else. I think your last step of holding the button until the light goes out is clearing codes as fast as you enter them. Just stop after you enter your code and let the learn mode time out on its own. That should do it.

And don't put your head through the wall. It just causes more headaches.
