When the door goes down and reverses itself it is a problem with the eye sensors. First you need to make sure the wires are connected properly to both eyes. Second make sure both eyes are seeing each other. It is common for spiders to build webs across the eye's lenses. Take a measuring tape, measure the distance from the jam to the lens then from the lens to the floor. Make sure both are at the same height. If this does not resolve your problem and there is nothing blocking the eyes from seeing each other, one of the eyes is bad and should be replaced as a pair.

D1000 closes holding wall button only, sensors clean and same, bypassed them it still did it, remotes don't work


This sounds like a problem with the safety sensors; either due to a blocked path between the safety sensors, condensation, mis-alignment, dirty eyes, loose wires at the sensors or at the motor head, or just bad safety sensors. When the infra-red safety sensors are malfunctioning, usually one of the sensor lights will be blinking or a blinking red light will show rather than green or amber. The sensor lights need to be solid and not dim or flickering.

When the sensors are at fault, the remotes cannot close the garage door; they can only open it. You may find that the door will only move an inch or so in the close direction. When this happens, your garage door will only close by holding down on the wall button until the door fully closes. This method is the only way to override the safety sensors and close the door. This is also a direct clue that the safety sensors are the problem.

Also, try unplugging the garage door opener and re-plugging the unit back into the outlet. This can act as a reset and may reset the sensors. If none of this works then you may have to replace the sensors or possibly the logic board inside the motor unit.

Garage door goes down and few inches and comes back up


Usually this means that your sensors on either side of the door are out of alignment or there is something blocking the sensors from making a connection. I did have a problem once were the door track twisted a little when the door started coming down thus making one sensor turn away a little and not allowing both sensors to make connection. Check to ensure the sensors are communicating correctly. Usually there are two lights, one on each sensor. They usually are red until they are properly lined up then they turn green. Some manufacturers have them flash until they are lined up then they stay on steady.

Make sure the solid white wire from each door sensor is attached to terminal #2 and the white wire with the black tracer is attached to terminal #3.

The solid white wire from the wall control goes to terminal #2 and the white wire with the red tracer goes to terminal #1.

If the green light in the wall control is blinking press and hold the lock button for 3 seconds.

Craftsmand garage door will not close. It comes down to about an inch away from the garage floor and then returns to the open position.


If the main light flashes 10 times when this happens 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 to get the lights on.

your infrared sensor is either misaligned, faulty, or you have a broken wire from your sensor to your door opener. (Flashing light indicates infrared light path is broken). both sensors should indicate green led. door wil not come down is safty feature to prevent door from closing when light path is broken.
