If you have a keyless entry it will still open the door with the vacation lock on. I assume you tryed this or don't have a keyless entry. There is no other way to activate the operator. Sorry but you will have to make a way in.

I installed a new garage door opener in Sept, all was good until my neighbor installed a new on 1 week ago-now my garage door is opened when i get up, can i reprogram my unit?


Hi Diane.... yes. Newer garage door openers don't have changeable codes inside the unit or transmitters. You use the learn button to erase all the memory & to program transmitters into the unit. Each transmitter has a unique signal permanently set at the factory.
If you have had your garage door opener for a few years, you have to make a change on the back of the motor unit up by the ceiling and in the remote[s] by changing one or more tiny switches, called dip switches. Open up the remote and and take a look. If you have the dip switches, a series of tiny rocker switches that can rock one way or the other, then just change one or more of them to the opposite side and do the same with the set of dip switches on the back of the motor in the garage that moves the door.

If you have a newer system, one with no dip switches, you will just erase the memory and reprogram it with a new memory. To do that:

Programming Steps: 1) Locate the smart button on the motor head which is directly under the screw terminals where the push button and photo-cell wires connect to the unit and above the antenna wire. You may have to remove a lens or light cover to gain access to the learn button. 2) Push the smart button momentarily (Holding the smart button until the L.E.D. light beside the button goes out will erase all transmitter and keyless entries that are programmed into the unit) and verify the
L.E.D. light next to the button is lit solid. 3) Push the transmitter button that you want to use for that door within thirty seconds and before the
L.E.D. goes out. The L.E.D. will flash once and the transmitter will operate the door the next time the button is pushed. 4) If you have more than one door and a multi-button transmitter repeat steps 2-3 above for each door by using a different transmitter button for each unit. (Using the same button for more then one door at the same location will cause all the doors using that button to open and close at the same time and is not recommended.) The openers normally come with a single or a 3-button transmitter but 2-button and
4-button transmitters are also available as an option. 5) Repeat steps 2-3 above if you have more than one transmitter to program into your garage door opener.

Went to my garage to get items out of freezer and my garage door opener was down, no one handle the remote, or push any buttons at all, went back to the garage to get bottle water and the door was wide...




Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn't work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.


If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.


Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ?½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.


The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.

Or a remote in someone

Garage door won't open or close using remote (light on lifter flashes twice) but will open and close using the button inside the garage.



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 HOLDING DOWN THE WALL BUTTON OVERRIDES THE SAFETY EYES.

OTHER?

I have problem, with my door garage. it desn't


IF THE DOOR OPENS WITH YOUR REMOTE BUT DOESN'T CLOSE (AND WORKS NORMALLY FROM THE WALL BUTTON) THE PROBLEM IS IN THE SAFETY EYES - CHECK TO SEE THAT BOTH LED'S ARE LIT.

IF NOT CHECK WIRING POLARITY - CHECK FOR BROKEN WIRES - CHECK FOR ALIGNMENT AGAIN.

Chamberlain Garage Door Opener will not close door


The problem is with the safety eyes. Make sure that both eyes are lit. If not, align them making sure that they are pointing directly at each other. Also, if you adjusted the force setting make sure that it is not turned up past 5 or it can be dangerous.

My garage door opener willnot work inside trailblazer .


Do you have a antenna build into the windshield of your car? If so thats your problem and there not much you can do about it other then stick your hand out the window when you pull up, and point the wire coming from your opener toward the door itself. Do not cut or add to that wire.

Remote does not open or close garage door; inside button flashes


What has happened is that you electric eyes are blocked or have gone out. The eyes are at the garage door about a foot of the ground on both sides. There should be a red or green light on one of them. If not some thing is blocking the beam that goes across the door. It is a safety beam so kids can nt get hurt when the door is coming down. If the beam is broke the door will go back up.

If the door closes by holding the wall button you have a photo eye issue. Check your photo eyes for proper operation.

Multi-Function Door Control


Take off the two wires on bad of button and touch together, If it works, buy new panel or doorbell button. If not, make a jumber with a paer-clip and touch W and R terminals. If that works, replace wiring to pushbutton. (Did it ever work? If not Red and White wires may be reversed)
