    I also have a Chamberlain Whisper Drive garage door opener and the red light blinks twice but it only opens if I hold down the wall mounted button. I have tried changing sensors, sensor wires, taken off the control board to see if it had an issue, but nothing works... Help.

You wall control is in lock mode sounds like press and hold the lock button for 3 to 4 seconds that should take care of that problem.

Alleejr your problem is not the same and ill need little more info. Where is the red light on your wall control? If its on the way up its not your sensors at all. Is your spring broke?

I have a baffling issue with my Chamberlain whisper drive. I have noticed that in the middle of the night sometimes the light on the opener comes on for a few minutes. There are no rodents or anything in my garage that could be setting off the motion sensor. What could this be?

Only the multi function control panel opens/closes garage door. Remotes and keyless entry do not work.


There's a lot of things that can cause range issues. Wireless routers to close to the garage. Bad LED or CFL bulbs. Faulty circuit board. A faulty motion detector on a light. Sometimes if you turn all of the breakers off except to the garage you can isolate it. If that doesn't help call a garage door company to come out.

How come my Chamberlain whisper drive hd600 safety sensor does not turn on the lights in the motor unit when the sensor is tripped when walking past it? It used to?


WITH THE LIGHTS ON PRESS AND HOLS THE LIGHT BUTTON UNTIL THE LIGHTS GO OFF AND THEN BACK ON (ABOUT 10 SEC.) THIS WILL TURN THE FEATURE BACK ON.

My garage door opener stopped working. when you push the remote or the button on the wall it makes a clicking sound and does nothing. there is an orange light blinking where the light bulb is.


The blinking LED light will tell you what has caused the opener to stop working. Count the number of times it blinks after you press the button, then refer to the opener manual. If you do not have the manual, you can usually find it online.

If the safety-eyes are not aligned properly, or blocked, the opener will not function. It will open, but not close. It could also be a part inside the motor that has malfunctioned- usually a circuit board or RPM sensor.

See our tips and tricks page for a more detailed explanation, as well as a few maintenance tips to keep the opener working properly.

My door will not go down from remote.It starts,jerks and quit ,lights flash.It is the same from main wall remote also.I have to hold down the the master button for door to go completely down


It is safety "eyes" sensor issue with your system. Lights flashing on the main console indicate a potential problem. Model up, from yours WD962KD, I believe, has a "smart" wall mountable remote that displays a potential problem. In your case, I would check that both safety "eyes" sensors are working (both should have lights on, one amber and one green). Post if you need more help.

How can I disconnect the motion detector on the Chamberlain 3/4 HPS Whisper Drive Plus Belt Drive Garage Door Opener with EverCharge


There is a button on the side of the wall-mounted remote. It has a pic of light bulb next to it. Press it once - the motion sensor is on and the lights will be on once it senses the motion; press it again and the motion sensor will be off.

MOTION SENSORS WORK BY MEASURING TEMPERATURE.

ANY TEMPERATURE VARIATION COULD CAUSE A FALSE ACTIVATION. LOOK FOR ANYTHING IN SIGHT OF THE MOTION SENSOR THAT CHANGES TEMP.

ALSO SOME UNITS TURN ON THE LIGHT WHEN THE SAFETY EYE BEAM IS BROKEN.
YOU COULD HAVE AN INTEMITANT OPEN CIRCUIT OR SHORT (USSUALLY UNDER A STAPLE) CAUSING THE LIGHT TO AVTIVATE FOR ABOUT 4.5 MIN. I HAVE ALSO SEEN SPIDERS MAKE THE HOLE WHERE THE EYES ARE A NICE HOME THIS WILL ALSO TRIP THE EYES.
