I'd like to *fix*
my Stanley garage door opener bloody well right, but I
don't have the money to replace it just now. The problem is the (IR)
optical sensor set at the base of the rails, which keeps going out. I
replace 'em ($65), they break again. Act like they're operating
properly (beep when you pass an obstacle through the beam) but won't
allow the door to close. No, the path isn't blocked and yes the beam is
aimed properly. I can hold the bleepin' momentary contact switch button
down and close the garage door, and it opens just fine, but what I'd
REALLY like to do is bypass the bleepin' sensor entirely for the time
being. 'Course I imagine that the opener also has a travel resistance
switch in it and it shouldn't absolutely crush anything solid in its
path, but I'd put it to the test before I left it without the bleepin'
optical sensor set.
Anybody know how I can wire the bleepin' thing to bypass the bleepin'
