    i have a wd822k opener and my lights will not come on. They used to burn out frequently, but now good working bulbs don't work. I can hear a relay pull in, but no light.

Try to install a heavy duty vibration proof bulb. Most hardware stores sock these. Your door might vibrate too much and cause premature bulb failure.

Another alternative is to remote mount a light and run the cord to a screw-in plug outlet where the original bulb was.This way you could even mount a fluorescent or more than one light and not be concerned about vibration from the opener.

My chamberlan garage door opener keeps beeping


The only thing on a chamberlain garage door opener that can beep is the battery back up unit. It beeps if it is being used or if it has lost it's charge or if it has lost the power to be charged. There is also an led light that will give you information on the status up by the battery too. These will be in your manual to decipher. You can get a new battery at chamberlain.com Thanks BB

Chamberlain remote has stopped working, new


WHEN YOU CHANGE THE BATTERY NO NEED TO REPROGRAM THE REMOTE.
THE FLASHING LIGHT TELLS YOU IT IS SENDING A SIGNAL THAT IS BEING RECIEVED IT IS JUST NOT THE CORRECT CODE TO OPEN THE DOOR.
REPROGRAMING THE REMOTE SHOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM

HOPE THIS HELPS

Light Problems on garage Door Opener


Its possible there could be a problem with the circuit board, the other possibility is that every time you break the beam of the photo-eyes located at the bottom of the tracks, the lights come on for another 4.5 minutes (if it is a chamberlin brand opener).

The garage door works when it wants to.


You have a problem with the safety eyes. Make sure a light is on on both eyes. If not, realign until both lights come on.

Beeping light coming from unit


Unplug the unit for two mins. and plug it back in. That should stop the blinking & beeping, but blinking & beeping mean a problem. What kind of operator do you have? Maybe I can help you troubleshoot the problem.

Chamberlain garage door opener unit-is it compatible with craftsman keypad?


Hello,Linda well this is your lucky day ,I have installed garage door openers for sears for 10 years and i can tell you that craftsman,chamberlain ,and liftmaster are all the same machine and manufactured under the liftmaster name , if you buy it from home depot it will be a chamberlain ,if you buy it at sears ,it will be a craftsman, and if you go to commercial building supplier it will be a liftmaster! now getting that out of the way even though they are all compatible ,there is one thing that stands in their way and that,s time ,For example if your chamberlain machine is 5 years old and you went to sears last week ,the chances of the frequency being the same are not good , most likely you have the wireless keypad , one way to test the sears keypad against the chamberlain machine is to locate the smart button on your machine ,this button allows for programming of remotes and keypads , to test and see exactly what im talking about take your remote and locate the smart button ,if you have three buttons on the remote press one of the buttons that are not being used on the remote ,above the smart button their will be a blinking light ,if you press your remote button you will notice the light go from a blink to a rapid flash , This is telling you that you are sending a signal for programming to the machine , well the keypad is exactly the same all you have to do is push the enter button on the keypad and have someone watch for the rapid blinking light ,if they are compatible the light will blink rapidly on the machine so all you have to do now is have someone press the smart button once on the machine your indicator light will now be a solid light you will have approx 60 seconds then to put a 4 digit code in the keypad and then press and hold down the enter button on the keypad , at this point you will notice the lightbulbs on the chamberlain machine to shut off and come back on this is to tell you that the machine accepted the code , after thats been done you can use your keypad , you can also find the owners manual to the chamberlain and follow the same instructions to programming the remote , they are identical in programing , if your keypad is not the same frequency you can also tell by looking at the frequency code on the backside of the keypad and also the chamberlain unit usually where the light bulb is will be its code

Remoteless


the light that blinks really would be the lightbulbs on the machine ,to programm the remote you must first press the smart button on the machine and then press the button that you would like to program on the remote , now you watch for the lightbulbs to click off and then on again , this is the machines way of saying i accepted the code , check your manual for the location of the smart button ,some machines have them on the left for two light units that are side mount or some of the units also have them on the rear of the machine ,theese are usually brightly colored square plastic buttons , it will also have a small led light beside it that blinks from time to time , this would be the rolling code technoledgy of todays more modern openers , You can also remove the plastic light covers to see this button ,remember wherever the bell wires and infrared wires from the senser go ,That will be the location of the smart button ,because that would be the mother board where all the functions are performed , Hopefully i was able to help you and i Thank you for the question ,now get crackin and program that remote Sincerly Glenn Mayer
