The only thing that will cause the main light to flash 10 times and the door to reverse to the open position is a sensor problem. Make sure the light on each sensor is on and not flickering ever so slightly. Make sure they are not moving when the door starts to close. Lights on sensors should not blink. One light should stay on constantly and the other sensors light should go off when you block the sensors.

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.

Anytime the main light flashes 10 times and the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. They each have a small light that should be lit, both should be the same brightness and not flickering ever so slightly. If not tweak them a bit. If both lights will not come on you have bad sensors.

Check to make sure you have them properly connected at the motor. The solid white wire from each sensor goes to terminal 2 and the wires with the black tracer go to terminal 3.

Door opens, when closing stops immediately but there is nothing blocking the safety light and lights are green. I can hold the button and door will close but as soon as i release the button it opens again.


Check your door sensors closely. Sometimes one will be off just a bit and the light will be on but blinking ever so slightly. If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is definitely a door sensor problem. Nothing else will cause that.

The light stays on for a long time although it shuts off (a lot more that 4.5 minutes). Can this be adjusted to be shortened? Where and how on the unit?


If you have one of the newer models the duration can be changed by holding in the lock button until the light blinks (about 10 seconds.) A single blink indicates that the timer is reset to 1½ minutes. Repeat the procedure and the light will blink twice, resetting the timer to 2½ minutes. Repeat again for a 3½ minute interval, etc. up to a maximum of four blinks and 4½ minutes.

If your opener has the motion sensor feature and a person enters the garage and walks in front of the door control the light will come on for 5 minutes and then shut off.

Garage door won't shut, light blinks 10 times.


If the light blinks 10 times it is a sensor problem. Nothing else will cause this. Tweak the sensor a bit and check it out.

Craftsman Garage Opener Clicks only and LED blinking 5 times


first off, hitting extra button on remote would not do anything. Is door up or down/ where is trolley that attaches to chain, by door or motor. Is is jamned against a bolt. Try a paper clip and jump from white to read terminal. Does it work. Does light bulb blink 10 times. I ignore the diagnostic lights and go by symptons. Give more info.
