    Flitestar logic board

    Post  brucemcdon on Fri Jan 04, 2013 8:22 pm

    My 1998 model Flitestar opened part way and died. No motion, (remote or wall switch) no light, no hum, no safety beams, no nuthin. Acts like a dead circuit but the wall socket is good. Troubleshooting guide in the manual says replace the board (P/N 6080362). Is there anything else I can check out (I can use a simple volt-ohm meter) or is the board the only logical cause?

    It sounds like the logic board. The boards in the Flitestars are very sensitive...doesn't take much to fry one. Unfortunately the Flitestar boards are no longer available.
    The good news is if you are the original purchaser of the opener then you can get a brand new Raynor Pilot opener for free under the Flitestar warranty. You'll need to contact your local Raynor dealer so they can submit a claim.

    Thank you for the quick and comprehensive reply. I'm not the original purchaser but I'll see what I can do about getting the board repaired (qie.com says they can do it) or find a replacement somewhere. Disappointing that it's no longer being supported with parts - I did see in the forum that models before 1993 were orphaned but I was hoping for a better outcome. Again, thanks.

    They quoted $350 to fix the board. I said no thanks and spent half that to replace the entire drive unit, shaking my head at the waste. Oh well, on to whatever breaks next!
