When activated, my Genie garage door opener should turn on the lights in the
powerhead and turn them off after 20 seconds or so.
Several days ago it started NOT to turn off lights and I had to push the
light on/off button on the wall console to manually turn them off. Today,
even pushing the button didn't turn off the lights.
The opener works well. It just doesn't turn off the lights. Is this a
problem of the wall console or the powerhead? Thanks.
I have the exact same problem, light stays on indefinitely, not just 5
minutes (mines been on for days now). Killing power for hours did not
reset it. A clicking sound comes from the unit when I move the light
switch up and down, so it's trying to do something. I don't see a
part that looks like it could be cleaned with contact cleaner. it
almost seems like the "relay" is a sealed part that is attached to the
circuit board. Any help is appreciated.
You should use a contact cleaner that actually improves the
connection. Try DeoxIT on the points, switches and connections. It
chemically improves metal conductivity. It is amazing stuff. www.deoxit.com
