To have your lights come on automatically when you walk into an open garage you must START with the lights ON. To turn the feature on, turn the lights on manually with the wall switch, then press and hold the LIGHT button for about 10 seconds until the motor unit light bulbs flash.

Now, if the light bulbs are on, manually turn them out and then walk out through the open door. The light bulbs should come on.

To disable this feature, start with the light bulbs OFF and everything else is the same.

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.

HOPE THIS HELPS

I have 2 lift master garage door openers that are producing errors when you hit the buttons to open 2 different doors. 1. I get error code 11 (sensor blocked or miswired)-there is nothing blocking...


If your garage door is up, and you break the beam (by walking through it, for example), you will get the "SENSOR WIRING INTERMITTENT CONNECTION ERROR CODE 1-4 SEE USER MANUAL". This is normal. Both of my Liftmaster 8550 openers do this. It's misleading, but this is what I've found to cause this error.

My light doesnt come on when i break the sensor....and my learn light blinks none stop


Random blinking of the learn light is normal.

To have your lights come on automatically when you walk into an open garage, you must START with the lights ON. If you don't want that feature and you want to turn it off, you must START with the lights OFF.

To turn the feature on, turn the lights on manually with the wall switch, then press and hold the LIGHT button for about 10 seconds until the motor unit light bulbs flash. Now, if the light bulbs are on, manually turn them out and then walk out through the open door. The light bulbs should come on.

To disable this feature, start with the light bulbs OFF and everything else is the same.

My garage door will open just fine, but when I try to close it the light blinks 3-5 times and then I have to press to button and hold it until the door closes completely. what can be the issue?


Check the obstruction sensors and for anything blocking the doorway. If both sensors do not have the appropriate lights on, adjust them to get the beam across the doorway to the opposite sensor. (My units have amber and green lights on different sides. Both lights must be on.)

I hope this helps.

(we often get the sensors out of alignment when someone walks too close to the rail of the door. Weeds and bright sunshine can also interrupt the light beam.)

Security light will not work


You must have a three function wall switch. This means in addition to a button that opens and closes the door there are two other buttons on the same wall switch. One is marked LIGHT and the other is marked LOCK.

To have your lights come on automatically when you walk into an open garage you must START with the lights ON. To turn the feature on, turn the lights on manually with the wall switch, then press and hold the LIGHT button for about 10 seconds until the motor unit light bulbs flash. Now, if the light bulbs are on, manually turn them out and then walk out through the open door. The light bulbs should come on.

My garage door opener reaches the laser beam and goes back up


Hi,
Have checked to make shur nothing on the Door is sticking out into the path of the beam. Most door I know of are set so that anythig breaking the beam, while the door is in motion, will send it back up. the beam dosnt stop being looked at till the doors been all the way closed for a second or two.

You might want to look at the part of the door that reaches the laser just before it goes back up, it dosent take much to break the beam, a piece of string could do it.

Hope this Helps

Garage Door Opener Light does not come on when it is supposed to


Great call Marty! I had noticed the amber LED above the learn button was blinking with one pulse, which the troubleshooting guide noted as being a problem with the sensors. Finding that one tiny paragraph in the manual and following the instructions of holding the wall-control light button in for 10 seconds reprogrammed it and the functionality is returned. Thanks!

Lights dont come on


If you have a Craftsman/Liftmaster with a 3 function wall control:
use the lift button to turn the light off. push and hold the light button for @1min. until the light flashes. This should reset your operator to have the light turn on when you walk through the photo eyes.
