Garage door/remote -up and down problem

Posted by johnboycat (My Page) on

Okay, here is my complex problem: I have a Sears hp garage unit with 2 remotes.
At this time my remotes will open my garage door as normal but will not close it, the
unit clicks and the unit light blinks for a few seconds and then turns off.
The wall unit will also open my door with a touch but will only close it if I keep my hand on it. when I touch the wall unit to close it, it goes a few inches and then returns back to the regular up position.


Thank you,

It is sensing an obstruction or possibly excessive down force required. Check your electric eye sensors first.

RE: Garage door/remote -up and down problem

Make sure your door sensors have not been bumped and that they are pointed at one another. Each one has a small light that must be on and not flickering for them to work. If you cannot get both lights to come on you may have a bad sensor or wiring leading to them.

Thanks for the directions. It ended up that one side were the plastic sensor was lose and hanging down preventing a clear line to the other side. Just straigthened and tightened wing nut. Perfect.
