My Chamberlain opener will not run at all. When I push the lock button the lights just flash continuously like a machine gun. The sensors appear to be aligned and on.

Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

if the plug is hot, DO NOT USE IT ,sounds like motor is jammed

if you count the flashes that is the code for trouble shooting

I hope this helps you
