SOUNDS LIKE A SAFETY EYE PROBLEM.

WILL IT CLOSE IF YOU HOLD DOWN THE WALL BUTTON??

HOLDING DOWN THE WALL BUTTON OVERRIDES THE SAFETY EYES.
WHEN HOLDING IT DOWN MAKES THE DOOR CLOSE PROPERLY THE PROBLEM IS IN THE SAFETY EYES.

ARE BOTH LEDS ON? - CHECK FOR A LOOSE OR BROKEN WIRE.
ARE THE EYES WIRED CORRECTLY?
ARE THEY AIMED AT EACH OTHER?

My Liftmaster Formula 1 opener has stopped receiving signals. The wall switch operates the door, but remotes will not. Our 2nd door opener was east to program a new remote.


This sounds like a similar problem that I had. The circuit board on the garage door motor has a capacitor that goes bad and this prevents the remotes from working. You can either buy a replacement circuit board online (for around $80 if I remember) or if you can solder, simply replace the capacitor for a few dollars. I answered a similar question on this site before after I went through the process. There are more details there. The capacitor in question was close to a heat producing component and over time it cooks.

Resetting motor of a dominator garage door


Doe the motor have a battery back-up, or mains only?
Step 1: Disconnect the linking arm from the motor traveller, and test (by pressing button on remote or wall console), that motor runs traveller to the fully open position, and stops where the "open" limit switch is. Then run motor (by pressing button on remote or wall console), to the fully closed position. If the motor fails to run through a full open/ full close cycle, the limit switches require checking.Assuming that the motor runs through the full open/full closed cycle, focus on the door. All motors have built in circuitry, preventing motors from crushing objects. A double garage door should be able to be lifted easily by one hand. The door should be able to be left at any height, and remain there, or creep ever so slowly downwards (travel time of approx 10mm per 5 seconds is ok). If your door is properly balanced, and the motor will still not lift it, the control card on the motor is damaged, and requires replacement.

My 1/2 hp sears craftsman garage door opener bought in 1992 has stopped working, The motor hums when the remote or wall button is pressed but the door will not move at all. Please help


Most common cause of the problem you describe is a bad start capacitor. Remove the cover from the motor unit. The capacitor is about 5 inches long and 2 inches in diameter.

Bought house with craftsman garage opener. Owner only had one remote. Bought a new remote at Sears that matched color code. followed instructions to code remote...that worked but made the old remote non...


Post the model number of the opener and the model numbers of the remotes. The opener model number is found on the end closest to the door and starts with 139.

Try programming the keypad like this:

Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

After programming the keypad see if either remote will work with it. Post this information also.

All of a sudden my garage door motor will not run, only clicks when pressing wall button or remote. garaage door moves manually.


Sounds like the trolley is stopped up against the stop bolt on the rail. This comes from bad limits. This happens often on older Chamberlain/Sears/Liftmaster etc openers.

Genie Compact 3-Button Remote control will only open 1 door/not 2


On some of the remotes you will find a toggle switch to change frequencies, this might help. Note all new openers are operating on a different frequency than slightly older ones due to military interference. Even though both might be intellicode they might not work together on the same remote. Sometimes some openers are harder to program than others. So lets try to program the harder one. You need to find and press the learn button on the motor head. Then press the button on the remote once. The led light by the learn button should not flash. If so try it over. The light should either stay lit or go out after the first press. If it does press it again and then a third time. If it ever flashes during the program process try again. The third or fourth time the motor should operate. If not you either have a bad remote or more than likely a bed logic board. Thanks BB

Door will not open with wall switch or remote


Depending on the type of motor that is used in your garage door opener, it could be something as small as a start capacitor, or potentially a bad motor. Hope this helps

Garage door opener


Pop open the cover and check for loose wiring. Also check to see if the capacitor is still good that powers the motor.
