I have a liftmaster garage door installed. Lately, I have started seeing this issue that whenver we try to close the garage door via remote, it doesn't close just makes 'tik tik tik' noise and the bulb inside the motor just blinks.

I tried closing with the switch inside the garage, i see the same issue. THe only way to close the garage door now is to hold the button inside the garage till the door closes. If we release the button before the door is fully closed, the door starts re-opening itself.

The garage door is about 7 years old.

Is there anyway we can fix it or we have to call a handyman to do it. What is causing this problem?

Any help will be highly appreciated.

That is caused by a photo sensor system that is bad, miss adjusted, or something is blocking it.

I had rope on my door that was used for manually closing the door. It had broken and when the door started to close then it would drop down and block the sensor.

You did not indicare which model, but this should be representative of yours.

Look at page 29 for the trouble shooting.

Then starting at page 16 it shows the installation and adjustment of the sensors.

Garage door will click but nothing happens. it will work after 10 or 12 times you push it. the wall mount or the hand held remote doing the same thing. any ideas on what to check would be helpful. Thank you.

That is a clasic symptom of the opener being "overloaded".

First disconnect the opener from the door.

And manually open and close the door. See that is BALANCED. And check that the door is not catching or rubbing.

If there are any problems the neeed to be fixed first.

Then run the opener without the door connected.

It should work freely and go the full travel. If not check for broken or binding parts.

Then connect door. If it still does not work every time the force limit control on the door needs to be adjusted.
