Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
I purchased one of these sets and keep finding my garage doors open. Is there any way to make these things less sensitive? This is nuts. I can't have my garage door open all night, without my knowledge.
The most common cause for phantom operations would be a short in the wall button or shorted wall button wires (this can be caused by temperature changes, vibration, or power surges). or an issue involving the remote control or other wireless devices (keypad, built-in system in the vehicle).
Start troubleshooting by:
Removing the wall control wires and hard-wired keypad wires, if applicable, from the motorhead terminals. If unsure about which terminals on the operator powerhead are used for the wall control, consult the owner’s manual. This will eliminate both wires and the wall button. Leave disconnected for a reasonable amount of time to ensure that the problem is solved or reappears.
If the problem reappears while the wall control wires are disconnected, change the coding in the receiver and in the remotes. Leave them for a reasonable amount of time to ensure that the problem is solved or reappears
If the problem reappears, check for any stuck buttons on remote controls being used, and on any old remotes. remove the batteries from all remote controls. Again leave them inoperable for a reasonable amount of time to ensure that the problem is solved or reappears. Re-program or erase the receiver and re-program remotes (consult owner’s manual).
Check the down limit switch to make sure that it shuts the motor down after each operation. The door could be hitting the ground and automatically safety reversing. Always watch the door fully close and stop before driving off.
If the problem re-appears you would have a faulty circuit board that should be replaced.
