Similarly, it is asked, what does it mean when the garage door opener is blinking?
The most common reason for the lights to flash on the garage door opener and the door not closing is that the safety reversing sensors are misaligned or obstructed; this is a safety feature of the garage door opener. Four (4) flashes indicate the sensors are slightly misaligned.
why is the light blinking on my LiftMaster garage door opener? Troubleshooting a LiftMaster opener with a flashing light involves inspection of the safety-reverse sensing system. LiftMaster motors will not operate when something obstructs the infrared beam between the safety sensors at the bottom of the garage door tracks. The main light will blink 10 times, indicating a problem.
Moreover, how do you align sensors on a garage door opener?
How to Align Safety Sensors On Your Garage Door
- Remove the receiving sensor (green light) from bracket. You can do so by taking off the wing nut.
- Point the sensor away from the sending sensor, so that the light is completely off.
- Once the light is off, wait 10 seconds.
- Slowly rotate sensor back, aligning sensor with sending sensor, until it lights up green again.
How do I know if my garage door sensor is bad?
If the door goes up but goes down only when you hold down the wall switch, check to see that the safety sensors are in alignment. The small light on each sensor should be lit up when nothing is between them. Door sensors do go bad, so if no light is showing at all, you may need to replace them.
