Limiter doesn't stop garage door going up

CHESTER345October 20, 2011

I have a Liftmaster 1/2 horse Garage Door Opener. A couple months ago I saw that the worm and drive gear were shredded. I was able to replace the gears. After reconnecting everything the limit switch will try and travel past the contacts in just the up direction (down works fine). I have checked that the brown, yellow and grey wires on the limit switch are secured and in the right locations.

Any more ideas on what I can check? Is it possible my gears shredded because of a bad limit switch or logic board? Is there a way to use the down wire for up also or any other way to get up switch to work correctly?



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

This is generally caused by a bad logic board.
