    Raynor 170-7 wiring question

    Post  rwood7 on Wed Jan 18, 2012 2:25 am

    Hi. I foolishly disconnected some of the wiring on my garage door opener (Raynor 170-7 model) due to some issues I was having with the safety sensors. I cannot remember the exact way that it was wired before. The sensor wire on one side has three separate wires (red, black, white), while the other side just has two (black, red). There are six screws on the opener to attach the wires, the descriptions are from left to right: Safety Input, Safety Power, Courtesy Light, Radio Power, Push Button, and 24 Volts. I currently have the white wire and the two black wires hooked to the 24 Volts screw, I have one red wire hooked to Safety Power, and the other to Radio Power. The safety sensors appear to be receiving power, as one green light is visiable on each of them. However, when I try to close the garage door, it goes down about two feet and then retracts (even though no obstructions). I have to hold the button down the entire time it is closing for it to work completely. Assuming I made a mistake when re-wiring the sensors. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Here's how your wires should be setup:

    (1) White Wire = #6 Safety Input
    (2) Red Wires = #5 Safety Power
    (2) Black Wires = #1 24-Volt

    If the opener still refuses to close then it's possible the sensors are bad.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for the information. I tried re-wiring as you indicated, but still no luck. One of the sensors does not appear to have power as there is no light indicator (whereas the other side shows green light). I guess I will grudgingly call a pro to come out and take a look as who knows if its the sensor itself, bad wiring, etc. Thanks again though.
