Question about Chamberlain Powerdrive PD422D 1/2 HP Security Plus Screw Drive Garage Door Opener

1 Answer

I have a baffling issue with my Chamberlain whisper drive. I have noticed that in the middle of the night sometimes the light on the opener comes on for a few minutes. There are no rodents or anything in my garage that could be setting off the motion sensor. What could this be? Paul

MOTION SENSORS WORK BY MEASURING TEMPERATURE.

ANY TEMPERATURE VARIATION COULD CAUSE A FALSE ACTIVATION. LOOK FOR ANYTHING IN SIGHT OF THE MOTION SENSOR THAT CHANGES TEMP.

ALSO SOME UNITS TURN ON THE LIGHT WHEN THE SAFETY EYE BEAM IS BROKEN.
YOU COULD HAVE AN INTEMITANT OPEN CIRCUIT OR SHORT (USSUALLY UNDER A STAPLE) CAUSING THE LIGHT TO AVTIVATE FOR ABOUT 4.5 MIN. I HAVE ALSO SEEN SPIDERS MAKE THE HOLE WHERE THE EYES ARE A NICE HOME THIS WILL ALSO TRIP THE EYES.

HOPE THIS HELPS

How do I change the code on my garage door opener. Have one and lost one.


Press an hold the learn button on the garage door opener for 10 seconds. You will notice an amber LED either next to or above the learn button. When the LED goes out the anything that was previously programed will be deleted. Now press and release the learn button once the amber LED will come on steady. Now press the button on the garage door opener you want to program to the garage door opener. You will hear a click and the light bulb on the garage door opener will go off and come back on. Your garage door opener remote is now programed with a new code.

Door will not go up or down. Lights do not come on.


The power is not feeding to your opener. Something is either A) wrong with the outlet you are using to power your opener or B) the opener has malfunctioned. Test your outlet to make sure it has active current. If there is any programming issues with this opener, it should have flashing lights at least.

Chamberlain GDO light turns on randomly at any time of day or night. (Whisper Drive with Motion-Detecting Control Panel 935CB.)


If you don't have any puppies or strange animals running around your garage I would disconnect the wall control for a couple days. If your problem stops I would suspect that control. If you have a heated garage I would also make sure there is nothing that could be moving from the air movement from the furnace.

My Chamberlian Whisper Drive 1/2 Hp opener has an issue. My motion sensor back light blinks and the factory supplied remote does not work now. Help.


You wall control is in lock mode sounds like press and hold the lock button for 3 to 4 seconds that should take care of that problem.

Alleejr your problem is not the same and ill need little more info. Where is the red light on your wall control? If its on the way up its not your sensors at all. Is your spring broke?
