Garage door opener

Posted by sandbob (My Page) on

I have a Liftmaster garage door opener. The door will not close using the remote. I have to use keypad and hold button down to close. I did hose the garage, and sensors may have gotten wet. I had this problem before and paid $$ to have it fixed. I know there is a way to do it myself. The sensor with one wire has a steady green light. The sensor with two wires has a steady orange light. What color should they be, and how can I fix this. Thanks

RE: Garage door opener

Sounds like your logic board might be going on the fritz. If you think you might want to replace it yourself, I can tell you where NOT to buy it. I recently bought one from Ontario Supply in New York from their web site for $60. Unfortunately, it has turned out to be defective and they won't refund my purchase price even though I sent the defective unit back at my own cost. So, don't buy from them, they don't deal fairly in my opinion. I think you're best off just calling a local repair service and let them replace the board. If you replace the board yourself and it does not work, you're just going to end up calling a repair service anyway. Ontario Supply operates under the following web sites:


In my opinion, you should avoid this company
