Hi. Remove the cover on the motor and you will find the up and down adjustment screws and the pressure adjustment screw. Begin by turning the down screw in one turn and check to see if that solves the problem. write down the adjustments you make so you don't forget. Also make small corrections, one screw turn, and then test it. Joe.

This has to do with a collision sensor, Something in the sensors way when the door is shutting, This is a safety thing in case someone gets under the door on accident so it don't knock them out. Check the sensor and let us know you might need repair in this case. Sometimes anything reflective might be setting it off.


I would recommend highly to have this checked out. I would put the unit on manual take it off the trolley until its figured out for safety.

Thanks, please be considerate that I am not there to see what the issue is when it doubt you might need t someone to have a look. please do click the accept button for my efforts.

Why does the overhead light on my garage door opener go off & on without any reason, day or night, even when door is not in use?


There's a gremlin living in your overhead light.....lol. The circuit board in the opener has the timer for the light. There's a component that's beginning to fail on it. Replace the circuit board.

Door will not operate unless you hold down button


I am presuming the following: is it that the door will not operate unless you hold down the button to "close the door"? And the button you are pressing is the hardwired wall button or control inside the garage correct? And if you try to close the garage door with the remote the overhead lights flash off and on or the motor make a clicking sound (about 5 clicks?)
The problem is either an obstruction of the safety sensors at the bottom of the door or, one or both sensor eyes are out of alignment. If you look closely at both safety sensor eyes on the part that faces into the garage, you should see a glowing LED. One side will be an Amber color and the other Green. If one is lit (amber) but the other is not (green), that is an indication that the beam is not being received by the receiving eye (amber).
If there is no obvious obstruction (check for spider webs, dust, try cleaning the clear lenses facing each other, etc,) Try re-aligning the sensors. When they are properly aligned the Green LED will be lit. Now, check the motor for operation.
If you have difficulty getting the transmitter eye (green LED) to light, try closing the door at the wall button, then, pull the red emergency release handle to disengage the door.
Now, try operating the motor unit with the door disconnected while using the hand held transmitter. If the motor unit operates to the close position while the door is closed but not when opened, then that sounds like there is sufficient light entering the garage to "Wash" the transmitter beam out so the receiving eye does not get it.
Contact Chamberlain/Liftmaster for Sensor eye blinder shields that can be easily installed by you. (they just snap on) If neither LED is lit, make sure that the wire to the sensor(s) has not been cut off at the sensor itself. If that checks out, check the connection at the logic board. Make sure that both wires are securely connected.
If after checking all of that, and you do not have either of the LEDs on, then disconnect the safety sensor wires from the motor unit's logic board. Then take a 2" piece of bell wire and jump it across the two terminals for the safety sensors. If the unit operates normally when using the hand held transmitter, then the problem is likely: a) Bad safety sensors b) Broken wire to one or both sensors
To check if the safety sensors are good:
Remove both sensors from their mounting brackets. measure about 8" to 12" of wire from the back of the sensors and cut. You should have about 8 - 12 inches of wire on each. Now, separate and strip the insulation from each and then match the white striped wires and twist them together, and do the same with the solid non-striped wires. Take the sensors up to the motor head and connect the spliced wires to their respective positions on the logic board. Now, Point the two sensors directly at each other (its okay if the clear lens part are touching each other) Check if both LEDS are now lit. 1) If YES; then the sensors are good, the wire to them is broken somewhere; [FIX] replace the wires for both sides. 2) If NO: then the safety sensors need to be replaced. [FIX] Replace the sensors, contact Chamberlain / Liftmaster for replacement parts. You will need your garage door opener's model # which can be found under the light bulb or light fixture on the opposite side of the logic board. Having the model # speeds up the parts search for you.
I hope this helps you out. [I have been factory trained on residential and commercial garage door openers by Chamberlain / Liftmaster and have been providing installation and tech support on them for over five years. Prior to that I used to install and repair these units, and I've done that for nearly seven years.]

After a brief power outage my Marantec 4700 garage door opener has problems opening/closing. When opening it stops at the fully open position and the lights blink, when closing it automatically reverses...


This is not a sensor issue, I have a similar problem, sensors work fine, garage door is still fully functional, all operations, including safety sensors work properly, just the overhead lights flash. I suspect there was damage to the power board due to a power surge, going to order a replacement to see if it works, will let you know how it goes.

Anytime the main light flashes 10 times and the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. If the transmitting sensor light is blinking it is bad.

We have an Overhead garage door. It has started


A bad circuit board or capasitor will cause this, mostly its the circuitboard. Depending on the age replace it with a Chamberlain/Sears opener or they make a model called LIFTMASTER you can only get this thru a garage door company.

Door will not close with remote.


The code you are seeing with 5 blinks is "RPM sensor or motor overload." We can eliminate the motor overload because the door is trying to close. The RPM sensor is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor. It's a snap to replace and is available at any good door opener company. They will know exactly what you are talking about if you ask for an RPM sensor board.
