Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble, Flor.

Does the wall switch work with just a single press, or do you have to hold it down?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just one press down
Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for confirming. This is most often an issue with the system being on remote lock.

Look carefully on the wall switch for a small button (usually near the light on/off button) with an icon/picture of a key or padlock on it. Press and hold that for about 5 seconds, then try your remotes again.

If no change, I'd need to know the make/model of the opener.
