If the courtesy lights on the motor unit aren't turning on, there may be no power getting to the machine, or there may be a fault in the control board. If the opener is getting mains power, I would suggest calling a Hormann dealer.

The unit is in the lock mode, push and hold the lock button in for about two seconds and the green LED should stop flashing. Your remotes should work.

SOURCE: My garage door opener won't close the garage door.

Most likely your door sensors have been bumped and are not aligned properly. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not blinking.

D1000 closes holding wall button only, sensors clean and same, bypassed them it still did it, remotes don't work


This sounds like a problem with the safety sensors; either due to a blocked path between the safety sensors, condensation, mis-alignment, dirty eyes, loose wires at the sensors or at the motor head, or just bad safety sensors. When the infra-red safety sensors are malfunctioning, usually one of the sensor lights will be blinking or a blinking red light will show rather than green or amber. The sensor lights need to be solid and not dim or flickering.

When the sensors are at fault, the remotes cannot close the garage door; they can only open it. You may find that the door will only move an inch or so in the close direction. When this happens, your garage door will only close by holding down on the wall button until the door fully closes. This method is the only way to override the safety sensors and close the door. This is also a direct clue that the safety sensors are the problem.

Also, try unplugging the garage door opener and re-plugging the unit back into the outlet. This can act as a reset and may reset the sensors. If none of this works then you may have to replace the sensors or possibly the logic board inside the motor unit.

Garage door opener not working


Sensor must show steady light to close circuit and let opener work. If aligned, then there is a loose or broken wire. Try reaiming first to get steady light. Then check all wires . Another way to test and prove that is the issue is if u hold down the wired button at ur back door and the opener closes, then it is sensor issue. Good luck.

My garage door opens fine, just wont close with remotes. Lights just flash. I have to use the opener in garage and keep the button pressed in till the door is fully closed or it will reverse.


Clean both safety sensors lens located at the bottom of the garage door frame. Make sure both sensors led lights are lit. If not they are out of alignment and you will have to loosen the wing nut on the sensor that is lit and move it, trying to get the other sensor to light.

Replaced door sensors now door will not go down and light flashes


The safety eyes are either installed wrong, or you have the wrong type. Craftsman (liftmaster) has what they they call old style and new style safety eyes. You can not interchange the types.
