We opened our Liftmaster...

We opened our Liftmaster garage door this morning and now it won't close with the button at the door or the remote. The door is about 14' high, and is a loading dock style door that rolls up.Help please...We just killed 2 rattle snakes in our yard this morning and need that door closed to keep them out of the garage!!

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of the appliance? And has it done this before?

We just bought the house...doors are about a year old, but I don't know the model. It is a Liftmaster door. I'll go look and see if I can find a model number on it.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I'd like to get the door to close today, so we'd like info on how to do that now, then a service tech to work on that door and another one we have that doesn't close all the way.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It is a LiftMaster Medium Duty Logic, but I don't find the model number on anything. It has a LiftMaster Commercial Protector System with Photoelectric Sensor.

ERASE THE TRANSMITTERS:

hold down the LEARN button on the opener for 6 or 7 seconds….If you have a MY-Q device …immediately press and hold the LEARN button again until the learn LED goes out. All codes are now erased.

HARD RESET:

unplug the opener what should be for a good minute......in the meantime remove the batteries from the transmitters including the key less.....and if you have a battery back-up.....there is no battery in the wall transmitter…..plug back in the opener and replace the batteries which should be fresh

OK, Eddie. I got the door to close. I was unable to use the instructions you sent...there is no Learn button, and I wouldn't be able to unplug the opener to do the reset because the plug is about 14 feet off the floor...I'm not able to reach it. I pressed Stop on the control button then pressed Down and it worked. The mystery is that I have done those same steps several times this morning with no action. It is closed now, and I'm happy about that because of the snakes! We live in a rural area and it's near 80 degrees right now so the nasty little rattle snakes are crawling today.
