My Stanley garage door opener is about 10 years old and the obstruction sensor
gadget was going bad. Despite being accurately lined up with the opposite
sensor, the red light would not light and the door would not close. By tapping
on the sensor unit, I was sometimes able to make it work, so it seemed there
was something loose inside.
I purchased a replacement sensor kit from an online garage door parts outfit.
It looks identical to the OEM sensors, but doesn't say STANLEY on the front. I
didn't want to remove all my original wiring, so I cut the wires and spliced
the new sensors in. I was careful to connect all the same wires.
Well, the new sensors are installed and lined up but no red light. The units
are beeping about once a second. Anybody know what's up with this and how to
make it work???
