I just moved into a house that has an old automatic garage door. It only
has 1 switch and no remotes. To raise and lower the door, I have to hold
the button down the entire time. Is there a type of switch that I can
install where I just push the button once and it raises and lowers the door
That would be a malfunction or maybe just a shortcoming of the motor unit.
Maybe a relay is non-functional. Well, it's NOT the wall switch. If the unit
was made in the last century or so, contact the mfg'er and find out what
it's supposed to do. I have a feeling it's an ancient relic that pre-dates
the transmitter and single-pulse wall switch.
