Customer Question

Help
I got a new car with HomeLink. In my STUPID quest to program it for my Wayne Dalton Pro Drive, I hit the program button on the Wayne Dalton unit multiple, random times.
Now, I have what appears to be a limit switch issue. The door only opens 18" and the light flashes. Another hit and it closes.
There are no obstructions.
HELP!

Hi .......I would like to do a hard re set and then try to re cycle ............it might be because of your programming that it is doing this ...............does the HomeLink work as of now ? eddie

The HomeLink works. All of the transmitters and HomeLinks work. However, the door only opens about 10" or so. It also closes properly.

HARD RESET: unplug the opener what should be for a good minute......in the meantime remove the batteries from the transmitters including key less..........plug back in the opener and replace the batteries which should be fresh

Sorry, I had an errand. I just unplugged it; I will report what happened.

No change. I didn't think that this would reset it. Otherwise, every time the power went out, it would need resetting. BTW, I am mostly using the doorbell switch to test these things (vs. the transmitters). But I am also using the transmitters.
