Has anyone run across this problem:
The garage door opens and closes fine with the wired control. When
using the remotes ( I have 2 and they both have the same symptom), the
door moves 6 inches then stops. If I hit the remote again, the door
reverses for 6 inches. This doesn't occur all the time...sometimes the
remotes work fine. Any ideas?
I had erratic behavior out of mine but unlike you it was with both the
remotes and the hard wired button. So, this may not be the fix for
you but mine turned out to be the photo eyes needed cleaning. Both
sides had dust and cop webs all over the eyes and a good cleaning
cleared up the erratic problem.
Hope this helps...
Find the receiver's antenna wire and straighten it out or reposition it.
You can also try mounting the receiver at the door's jamb and threading the
antenna behind the stop molding so that it is exposed outdoors in front of
Does your door have the photo beam sensors? Sounds like a similar
problem I had. A certain times during the day, the sun would shine
directly into the receiver and cause the same symptoms you described.
The problem could have been easily resolved at the time of
installation if the contractor had noted how the house was sited with
respect to sunrise-sunset.
As others have said, it could also be something blocking or partially
obstructing your beam.
