Relist: Inaccurate answer.
My chamberlain whisper drive garage door opener, 3/4-HP motor hums with 5 yellow flashes above the learn button.

The door works fine otherwise.
Please tell me what causes the huming and the flashes and why?
Expert:  Machinc replied 11 months ago.
The motor could be in a strain. Check to see if it is hot after operating
. Let it cool and look for any part that is binding
while it is operating .
If there is nothing binding then the motor could
be on the verge of needing replacement.
It is also possible that the transformer is humming
and not the motor.
It would be hot to the touch . If it is it would need
replacing.
A third option is one of the manual switches could
could be trying to operate. It would have to be
shorting on the inside or have an obvious physical
problem like a broken housing.
The link should help you with the reset or
identifying parts.
