this probably means you have a bad photo eye if you happen to have to doors side by side may be picking up on other sides photo eye just switch sides from left to right, however if the lights are coming on but does not mean that photo eye is not bad it has a small circuit board inside of it...

Garage light turns on without disturbance.
Most likely the unit has a sensor that activates the light when you walk around or open the door.
if no one is in the room it should go off in 5 minutes, but if someone goes back in there to check it goes back on again.
Under the light cover there should be a switch where you can disable it or make it less sensitive.

My neighbors garage door opener opens my garage
Look at the LED light next to the
SMART/LEARN button on rear of the motor unit. You may need to remove
a light lens cover in order to see it. If the light is flashing
rapidly this means you have a stuck button on one of your remote
controls. Take the batteries out of each remote control. When you
remove the batteries from the bad remote, the light will stop
flashing. This remote needs to be replaced.
If one of your neighbors remote
controls is inadvertently programmed into your receiver, you door
will open when their remote is activated. If this happens you will
need to clear out your receiver and reprogram your remote controls.
Press and hold the smart/learn button for 6 seconds or until you see
the small LED light near the button turn itself off. If the above
steps have been followed and the symptoms continue, there may be an
electronic short in either the wall control button or the receiver
logic board. In this case, remove the wall control wires from
terminals 1 and 2 on the motor unit. Should the symptoms persist
after the wires are removed, replace the receiver logic board. If the
symptoms stop with the wall control wires removed from the motor
unit, replace the wall control button, and the wires leading to the
wall control button.

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

Door dosent close.move about 1 ft then opens
You may not have had the motor shaft pushed all the way back when you tightened the coupler after replacing the worm gear. Loosen the coupler up and from the front of the motor (opposite end in which the coupler is on) push the shaft back as far as it will go. Hold it there while you tighten the coupler back up and then try it.

Are the sensor lights located on each side of the garage door opening? Have you checked to see if they are in alignment with each other? Also check to see that any wire from the sensors are disconnected on the motor or at the sensor itself. Good Luck! Countrycurt0
