Problem: Both Remote FOBs became erratic opening and closing.
Solution: Fixed by removing the LED light bulbs in the opener motor unit and replacing with (old style) filament Bulbs.... heavy duty service.

Cause: LED bulbs contain very simple electronic parts. Apparently a failure inside the LED internal to the bulb caused the bulb to generate RF energy when the light was "on"! This RF energy confused the receiver in the motor unit, so it was unable to detect the signals from the FOB.
