SOURCE: Remote Control closes garage door but does not open

It sounds like a case of your keypad losing signal strength enough that it cannot transmit through the closed door. If a new battery doesn't do the job a new keypad will.

You cannot bypass the sensors but you can try reversing their position so that the sun isn't hitting the receiving unit. You can also move them back from the door or use something like the tube inside a roll of toilet tissue to shade the lens.

SOURCE: garage door only closes halfway

If the main light is flashing 10 times when the door reverses when closing it is a door sensor problem. You can override this with the door control but not with a remote. Make sure the door sensors are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is on and not flickering.

I think your sensors need to be readjusted. You may also have one with a bad wire. There is a light on each of them that should be on. If you can visually line them up, and one light still will not turn on, check the wires to it to be sure that they are connected to the opener, and also that there are no staples that have shorted or cut the wires, and that the wires are not broken out of the sensor. Also, you may want to consider moving the sensors back away from the door opening to keep the sun from interfering.

When the sun is directly over the door it will not close.


The sun is probably shining on your door sensors. You can move them back to a shady area or you can make shades from the center tube of a roll of toilet tissue.

My Chamberlain garage door opener works fine except when the sun is shining, then it acts like something is blocking the sensor. How can I make the door opener work in the daytime?


There are a couple easy solutions for this. You can try switching the sensors side to side or use the cardboard tube that comes inside toilet tissue to shade the lens.

It sounds like the sun may be shining on and causing problems with the door sensors. Try using the cardboard tube from a roll of toilet tissue on the receiving sensor.

Make sure the brackets for the sensors are tight and the small light on the sensors is not blinking ever so slightly. You also might try shading the sensor so that the sun is not shining directly into the lens.
