Remote Door Opener works once then delays

geoff_wombatMarch 21, 2007

My sears door opener will only work once, before it requires a "rest" of 5-10 minutes before it will respond again.

That means I can open the gararge to leave, but the remote will not close the door. By the time I get back home, If I accidently press the remote. It closes the door..Then it will not open it. I am not sure of the exact time delay that is ocurring, before it can be active again, but it's pretty wierd. I am having to open the door for my wife, when I leave for work, so she can get her car out, and close the door using the remote, as she leaves a few hours later. Any ideas,??

Have you tried replacing the battery? I can't think of any other reason for this problem.
