Here is the problem. When you push either button or the remote to open the door everything works fine. When you try to close the door the remote won't work at all and if you use the two buttons that are directly wired you have to hold them down the whole time until the door shuts.

They called a guy a while back to work on it and they said he replaced the circuit board and it worked right for about a week or so then started acting up again. I would call him back but it's been too long ago to do any good.

I'm at a loss. I checked the connections reprogrammed the remote and just did a general check and I don't know where to start looking. The owner's manual is no help at all as far as troubleshooting. Do any of you guys have any ideas or experience with this sort of thing? Appreciate any help. We may have to chuck it but I would at least like to give an honest effort to fix it first. Thanks.

It would help to know which door opener you have. Is the door sensor blocked or not installed or wired and aligned correctly?

So, how is it going now? Has the issue been resolved? I've had a similar one, and I solved it just by reprogramming the system. Maybe you should just find another service that could help you. When I had my issue, I ordered new doors and reinstalled the system, so now the garage works well. So you can definitely contact doorsdirect2u.co.uk. They will help as they've helped me. Btw, there are quite a lot of video tutorials on yt on this topic, so you should do some research, I guess. Don't get lost, and tell us if there're any updates on your issue so we can help you

There is probably a problem with your garage door. How long have you had it? I had similar problems with my first garage door. I thought that if I bought a garage door, it would be for life, and I won't have to change it. But it's not like that. Garage doors, more precisely the mechanism in these garage doors, break down very quickly. That's why when you want to buy a garage door, you don't have to sacrifice money and buy a quality one. In my case, it was not of the best quality, and the specialists from https://advantagegd.com/garage-door-sales/ made me a garage door replacement. Since then, I have had no problem.
