    I think the green light flashing 4 times means something. Mine does the same thing. When it is in this error state, it also fails to turn on the lights for about thirty seconds (they stay off while it is opening), and then they come on after about a half minute.

I have had the same problem.  The nylon gear that drives the chain started to strip, and was slipping. It finally wore out completely, and now needs replacement.

Check and see if a spring is broke on either side above the door in the middle. (big springs) that's my problem.

When closing the door it will act like it is going to close, move about 4 inches then go back up and the light flashes 5 or 6 times and then stops


Check the sensors in the doorway. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a little. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have bad sensors.

Hi Rick

I believe best and safest solutions is resetting and re-programming the system. here is the instruction manual link;

Door sensors have nothing to do with door opening. Only closing. It sounds like you have a bad gear in the motor unit. Remove the cover and it will be obvious if the gear is bad.

My opener is a 1/2 horse lift master professional chain drive . The door will not close unless you hold the closer button in. From the remote it will only move a few inches and then reverse. The door works...


If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem. If not, you probably have a bad RPM sensor board which is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor.

Most likely your door sensors are out of alignment. Make sure they are pointed directly at one another.

Door will not open


Sounds like you might have a broke spring. Put the door all the way down and release the manual release. Now try to lift the door. If the door is heavy you might have to call a door company in your area to add tension to your springs or if they are broken both springs should be replaced.
