I just bought a foreclosure that has a Chamberlain Whisper

Hi my name is eddie. I can help you with your difficulties but I will need some information and I will ask you questions that I will need specific answers for. With your help, finding out what is right with it, is a step to eliminate what is wrong with it ......sometimes it may be one of a hundred things but together with your patience we can work toward a goal to get this issue resolved.

If I may ask:

~~PLEASE CUT AND PASTE THE NUMBERED QUESTIONS AND PUT YOUR ANSWERS NEXT TO THEM~~

1-) The make CHAMBERLAIN and model WHISPER DRIVE and/or number of the unit in question and do you have the manual for it?

2-) how old it might be and if you are the original owner

3-) can you tell me if you have a working wall control and how many working remotes

4-) any flashing LED lights on the opener (ceiling unit) and how many times it blinks before pausing? The color of the learn button is?

5-) has there been any kind of disruption that may have changed the dynamics with this opener....any wiring or perhaps the kids playing there or a recent power outage

6-) what happened that made it go from working to non-working ?

7-) are you using only the equipment that came with this opener?

8-) do you have a chain......belt......or screw drive?

9-) what exactly happens when you do click the transmitter?....... the door doesn't move but you hear the motor?......it goes partial way?........reverses?

10-) do you feel that you are capable of making simple adjustments and more than mechanical in making some harder ones if necessary?

We can start here and with the info you provide I will add steps toward our target as we proceed by our correspondence

If by some reason a resolution to the problem just isn't possible, I will do my best to supply you with any remaining options, from what other resources I can find.

Since we take pride in our good reputations, and you might feel the need to choose a bad service rating, I ask that you stop and consider replying back to me with any of your concerns.

Please always allow me time to prepare information for you. In case I have to go offline I am always checking back to keep things moving and expedited.

And thank you for your help and assistance

I am at a different location right now and do not have access to the unit to give some of these answers.1-) The make CHAMBERLAIN and model WHISPER DRIVE and/or number of the unit in question and do you have the manual for it? As I stated in my question, I bought the condo yesterday. No remote openers or information were given to me. I do not have a manual and do not know the model number.2-) how old it might be and if you are the original owner. As I stated in my question, I bought the condo yesterday. No remote openers or information were given to me. No I am not the original owner. I'm guessing it is original to the house so 18 years.3-) can you tell me if you have a working wall control and how many working remotes As I stated in my question, I bought the condo yesterday. No remote openers or information were given to me. The wall control does open the door.4-) any flashing LED lights on the opener (ceiling unit) and how many times it blinks before pausing? The color of the learn button is? No on property to answer this at this time.5-) has there been any kind of disruption that may have changed the dynamics with this opener....any wiring or perhaps the kids playing there or a recent power outage The power has been off while the property was on the market.6-) what happened that made it go from working to non-working ? It is working. I need to know how to reprogram the keypad and where to get remote openers.7-) are you using only the equipment that came with this opener? yes8-) do you have a chain......belt......or screw drive? there is a chain9-) what exactly happens when you do click the transmitter?....... the door doesn't move but you hear the motor?......it goes partial way?........reverses? the door opens when I hit the wall control10-) do you feel that you are capable of making simple adjustments and more than mechanical in making some harder ones if necessary? This should not involve mechanical work.
