Please elaborate. How do I check bad detent switch. Also how would I adjust contact switch. The door will manually open and close without fuse. When I put the fuse in door remaines open and chimes. Thanks

Trying to find you a test procedure, but it is not coming up, so I will opt out and another tech will be with you shortly.

Customer satisfaction is my number one goal. Giving a 3 star or higher rating would be appreciated You can do this rating by clicking on the stars in the upper right hand corner of the screen. This will not close your question and we will still be able to talk about any other issues you may have for free! I do not get credit unless you give a positive rating. If you give a negative rating (2 stars or less) that does not result in a refund. So please ask what you need more help with and lets get your question answered!
