    Raynor Model 130-7 intermittent problem

    Post  cwilly8 on Sat Jun 18, 2011 10:46 pm

    Raynor Model 130-7. This was installed new in our home in 1990. (So 21 years isn't too bad, but why spend $200 for a new opener if this one can be fixed?) The opener, when it works, does fine. However it sometimes won't respond to open/close signals. This can be from the hard-wired button on the wall, the original Raynor remote (with good battery), or either of two vehicles with the code set to match.

    Here is a typical scenario: In the morning as I leave for work, I push the hard-wired wall button as I enter the garage and the door goes up. I get into my car, back out of the garage, and press the Raynor remote button in my car. Nothing happens -- the door stays up. In order to get the door to close, I have walk back into the garage, get a stepstool, unplug the 120v cord, plug it in, put away the stepstool, and walk to my car. Now I can push the remote button and the door will close.

    As I said, there are four different devices for operating the door opener and it happens with all of them. So it seems to be something in the electronics of the opener. A bad capacitor, or a corroded connection? Any suggestions on where to start?

    Thanks,
    Craig

    It sounds like it may be an issue with the logic board...unfortunately the logic boards for the R130 opener have been discontinued. If you take the cover off the opener you'll be able to remove the logic board and inspect it. If you see an burn or smoke marks on it then that is most likely the problem. If you don't see any problems with the logic board then you may want to try a new capacitor. If that doesn't work then I would suggest a new operator. It's a shame because the R130 is a solid operator but without logic boards or support from Raynor Mfg. there isn't much that can be done for it.

    Thanks, Admin. I would have replied sooner, but our phone/internet was out yesterday. I decided to not bother with the old Raynor, and after consulting reviews online, went with a Chamberlain 1/2 HP Whisper Drive (belt). It is in the garage awaiting Saturday morning's appointment.
