    Raynor model 170-7 will not close using remote

    Post  JoeIllinois on Tue Dec 17, 2013 2:28 pm

    Raynor model 170-7 will not close using remote.  This intermittent problem started when the weather turned really cold.  When the door has been opened, sometimes there is a relay clicking at the motor.  It sounds like the electric eye relay but the electric eyes stay green.  Holding the wall switch will close the door?  Thanks.

    There's definitely a problem with the safety sensors. It's likely one of the following problems: 1.) The sensors are dirty - clean the lens off with a damp cloth. 2.) The wires are either loose or corroded - check wires on end of sensors for corrosion and make sure the connections are tight at the powerhead. 3.) The sensors are misaligned - check alignment & make sure brackets haven't been bumped. 4.) The sensors have failed - replace both sensors.

    Hope this helps.  santa
