Reasons for Flashing Lights on LiftMaster Openers

LiftMaster garage door openers near Wyckoff are strong and dependable. They also have safety features that help keep homes protected while the homeowners are away. Some homeowners, however, may not realize when this safety feature is in place. Watch the video and read below for a brief explanation of why a LiftMaster garage door opener may have flashing lights.

A LiftMaster control panel should have small LED lights that will turn on and off. Sometimes, these lights may begin flashing and the garage door will not open with a remote control. Though this may be frustrating to homeowners, these lights actually mean that a safety feature has been turned on. There is a locking capability—often used while homeowners are away on vacation—that prohibits the door opening with a garage door remote control. Homeowners can push and hold the “lock” button for a few seconds to remove this feature and the flashing lights.
