Customer Question

my chamberlain lift master will open with one push of the remote or door bell type button. However, when trying to close it, the light blinks and the door goes back to the open position unless I hold down the remote or the button on the door bell type button. If I hold the button or remote down , then the door closes like normal. If I release my hold on the button before it completely closes, it will go back to the open position. It goes all the way back to the open position.
