What Does It Mean When the Opener’s Light is Flashing?
There are several things that can cause the light on your unit to flash.
Sensor Problem: One of the most common reasons for a flashing light is a sensor problem. Your door has a safety sensor attached to it. If there is a problem with the sensors, then the door will not be able to fully close or open. As a result of this, the opener lights will begin flashing.
You will also want to make sure your sensors are placed properly; they must be directly near one another. In addition, the sensors must be cleaned using the proper procedures. There should be no dirt or other elements on the units.
Incorrect Mode: Your garage door opener may also be in the wrong mode. If it is not set in the right mode, the lights will flash when you try to shut or open the door.
Low Battery: Battery issues can also cause the light on the opener to flash. The unit may have a built-in battery that allows the opener to continue working when the power goes out. The indicator light will turn on if the battery is low.
Does Your Door Opener Hum, But Not Open?
If your door fails to open, there may be blinding or sprocket problems. If there is something blocking the rail, the garage door will not open as well. A professional inspection can usually solve this issue. The sprocket is found on the inside of the motor cabinet. The door will not function correctly if this component is broken. Contact your technician to repair or replace the sprocket.
Electrical issues can also cause problems. If the opener has damaged wiring, professional repair is recommended. Our technicians always comply with all safety procedures.
