GDO Optical Sensor Problem

Posted by jimbomojo (My Page) on

I am having problems with my GDO optical sensors. When the sun shines on them at just the right angle my door won't shut. i have to get out of my car and stand in front of them so my shadow covers the sensor - then it closes no problem. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how did you fix it? Any ideas?

Reverse the Photo-Eye Units and see if that helps. That usually fixes the problem when we encounter it. Sunlight is a problem for photo-eye emitters & receivers
