Question about Home Security
Posted by Anonymous on
The lights are suppost to be yellow (power to photo eyes) and green (lined up).
1.Check to see if the door is running correctly.
A. Run the door down and pull the emergency release. See if the door will run easily by itself.
1. If it runs hard by hand try lubricating the rollers and hinges with silicone spray or some form of lubricant (not WD 40)
2. If the door is heavy and falls back to the ground, you probably have a spring issue (either broken or needs more tension) in this case call a professional door repair company in your area.
B. If the door runs fine then check the up force on your operator (the box that hangs from the ceiling). If the light bulb(s) on your operator are on the front and/or back, the force adjustment screw is on the back of the operator. If the lights are on the sides of the operator then the force adjustment screw is on the right side (looking from the back of the operator and facing the garage door). Turn the light blue adjustment screw with the up arrow to a higher number.

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.

Ok quick question. How old is your opener? There are two little blocks on each side of the door. are they both green? or is one amber and the other green? When I go out to a customers house with this problem the first thing I do is close the door so is a little darker so you can see the lights. Line them up then I good each one a good little tap with my finger and see if ether light will flicker. If so then there too loose or not lined up as well. One side will always be lite (unless there is no power or a cut wire)

SOURCE: Genie Garage door will not
If you hit the button on the remote and nothing happens then you may need to code in the remote. On the motor head press the learn button and then press the button on the remote 3 times.
If it looks like the remote will work the opener or it opens the unit but not close it you are experiencing safety sensor problems. Make sure they are aligned. There will be a light on each and each should be on. Check the wiring to them too. They are not polarized. Thanks BB
