Chamberlain SL575 garage door opener troubleshooting

Chamberlain SL575 and SL575 LiftMaster Professional are heavy duty slide gate operators. They are equipped with 1/2 HP and 1 HP motors, as well as a solenoid actuated brake. The maximum cycle rate varies from 18 to 22 cycles per hour depending on the power of the motor.

FaultPossible causeFix
Operator fails to run1) Improper v/ired stop control― Check the green LED (D17) on control board. If the green LED is off. check to make sure a stop control has been installed across terminals TB1-3 and TB1-5 of the terminal strip.
2) Fault in the operator check the yellow diagnostic LED at the top right of the control board next to the programming dip switches.― If the yellow LED blinks six times, there is a master/second unit communication failure. If operator is a single unit, make sure there is a jumper across terminals TB1-11 and TB1-12. If operator is in a dual gate configuration, make sure that the communication wiring between the two units is undamaged and complete.
― If the yellow light is solid, the board needs to learn the motor. Follow the directions on page 22.
3) An accessory is active or malfunctioning check the red input status LEDs. D11-D31― If any red LEDs are on. check the corresponding input. An installed accessory may be wired incorrectly or malfunctioning. Remove the accessory and test the operator.
4) Improper J4 connector wiring (master/second)― If the open or interrupt (safety) loop LED is on. make sure factory plug-in loop detectors are working properly and appropriate loops are installed on the loop input terminals.
― Stand-Alone Operators: Make sure there is a jumper installed across the J4 connector.
― Master/Second Operation: Make sure that the master/second wiring is installed correctly and is intact (not damaged).
5) Low or no high voltage pov/er― Verify power supply to operator. It should be within 5% of the operator's rating v/tien running. Make sure that the proper v/ire gauge v/as used for the distance between breaker and operator by consulting the wiring specifications section on page 8 of this manual.
6) Low or no low voltage power― Measure the voltage at terminals R1 and R2 in the operator. This voltage should be within 5% of 24Vac. If the high voltage power is good and the low voltage power is bad. check to make sure the circuit fuse is not tripped and that the correct primary tap is used on the transformer. If fuse and tap are correct, replace the transformer.
7) No LEDs illuminated on the control board― If both primary and secondary power is good, check to make sure that the J2 connector is making good contact with the pins on the control board. If all is good, replace the control board.
Contactor chatters when operator begins to move1) Transformer's secondary is overloaded― Remove all accessory devices and test the operator. If the contactor stops chattering, find an alternate pov/er source for some of the devices.
2) Low primary (high voltage) pov/er― Verify power supply to operator. It should be within 5% of the operator's rating v/tien running. Make sure that the proper v/ire gauge was used for the distance between breaker and operator by consulting the wiring specifications section on page 8 of this manual.
Operator runs slow and/or trips the internal overload1) Low primary (high voltage) pov/er― Verify power supply to operator as well as the meter base or sub panel. Make sure there is not a major change in voltage. The voltage at the operator should be within 5% of the operator's rating when running.
― Check the number of amps currently being drawn from the panel. Make sure that the total power being drawn does not exceed the panel's rating.
― Make sure that the proper wire gauge was used for the distance between breaker and operator by consulting the wiring specifications section on page 8 of this manual.
2) Problem in the motor― Perform a visual inspection of the motor. Examine the motor's labels for any distortion or signs of overheating. Replace the motor if it is humming, grinding or making excessive noise. NOTE: Repeated motor problems indicate poor primary power.
3) Problem in the contactor― Examine the contactor for sparking, smoke or burn marks. Remove the wires from one side of the contactor, then measure the contact points for high resistance (above 1 ohm). Replace the contactor.
4) Problem in the brake system― Make sure that the brake is disengaging when the contactor pulls in and engaging when the contactor releases. Replace solenoid.
Master or second operator is not functioning properly1) Failure to cycle power after setup― The pov/er to each unit must be cycled in order to initiate proper master/ second communication if the operators were previously in stand-alone mode.
2) Communication wiring may be damaged or improperly wired for dual gate operation― Make sure that the communication wire that is used is twisted pair and not run in the same conduit with any power wiring. Failure to do so v/ill result in interference across the master/second communication line.
3) Master or second unit is not programmed correctly― Review program settings page 19 and check both the master and second for proper programming.
4) Master/second connection not properly grounded― Review wiring detail for master/second systems on page 20.
Operator runs in wrong direction1) Operator's main power is out of phase (three phases only)― Turn off the unit's main power at the breaker and swap any two power leads at the operator's main power switch. Apply power and retest the operator. See important note on page 12.
2) Operation directional switch― Check right/left operation switch. See DIP switch S1 programming setting.
Operator runs but then stops and reverses direction1) Entrapment (force pot) incorrectly set― This pot must be set so that the gate will run smoothly normally and reverse when encountering an obstruction.
2) Gate is binding or not running smoothly― Disengage the manual release and roll gate open and close by hand at normal operating speed. Make sure that the gate runs smoothly and does not bind. If the gate is hard to move or binds, repair the gate.
3) Clutch is not adjusted properly― Adjust the clutch so that the operator can move the gate throughout its travel without slipping but will slip when the gate hits an obstruction.
4) Brake is not functioning properly― Make sure that the brake operates correctly. The brake should disengage when the contactor activates and engage v/tien the contactor releases.
5) Observe red LEDs D29 and D31― Both LEDs will indicate the activation of entrapment protection devices on terminals TB1-9 and TB1-10 on the control board. Remove the devices and retest. If the operator now runs without fault, check those accessories as well as their wiring.
6) RPM (Hall Effect) Sensor is not aligned― Make sure that the sensor is adjusted so that it is centered over the limit shaft's magnet and is 10-15 thousandths of and inch (business card thickness) from the magnet.
― Replace the sensor if it is adjusted correctly but continues to fail.
Motor runs but gate does not move: operator stops and alarms1) Operator's manual release is not aligned― Make sure that the unit's manual release is not engaged. The unit's manual release, when engaged, will set off the entrapment if the gate is given a command to move.
2) Clutch is not adjusted properly― Adjust the clutch so that the operator can move the gate throughout its travel without slipping but will slip v/hen the gate hits an obstruction.
3) V-Belt Slippage― Check belt for excessive wear. Belt can be adjusted by loosening the (4) mounting bolts securing motor to the frame and sliding motor until belt is taut.
Operator opens immediately upon power up and does not close1) Active or malfunctioning accessory check the red input status LEDs. D11-D13― If any red LEDs are on. check the corresponding input. An installed accessory may be v/ired incorrectly or malfunctioning. Remove the accessory and test the operator.
― If the soft open or interrupt (safety) loop LED is on. make sure factory plug-in loop detectors are working properly and appropriate loops are installed on the loop input terminals.
Operator has trouble learning the motor1) Operator's manual release is engaged― Make sure the manual release is not engaged. The operator's manual release, v/hen engaged, will not allow the entrapment sensor to provide feedback to the control board v/tien the operator is moving.
Programming changes do not effect the gate1) Check the save switch on switch S1-1― If the switch S1-1 is in the on position, any subsequent programming changes will not affect the gate. To make programming changes, switch S1-1 off. make desired changes, and then switch S1-1 on.
Gate edge pauses gate when struck during opening1) Open obstruction input is programmed incorrectly― The open obstruction input has been programmed to function with photo eyes, not gate edges. Refer to page 15 and reprogram the obstruction inputs for correct operation.
Gate does not activate timer to close after the close photo eye is broken1) Close obstruction input is programmed incorrectly― The close obstruction input has been programmed to function with gate edges, not photo eyes. Refer to page 15 and reprogram the obstruction inputs to match the accessories that are installed on operator.
Radio controls will not close the gate from the open limit1) Radio terminals R1-4 are factory configured for commercial radio function― Configure terminals R1-4 for residential radio for residential radio function by performing the following modifications:
1. Locate and disconnect the end of the wire running to terminal 6 (TB6) from R4.
2. Connect the end of the wire removed from terminal 6 (TB6) to terminal 1 (TB1). Refer to page 19.

Chamberlain myq garage door opener troubleshooting

ProblemSolution
If the Internet Gateway’s green LED is not illuminated or blinking, the Internet Gateway is not connected to the Internet. There are a few different reasons an Internet Gateway will not successfully connect to the Internet:
• An incompatible router
• A router configuration setting (e.g. MAC address filtering)
• A network security appliance (firewall)
Green LED on the Internet Gateway is off
The router is not providing an IP address to the Internet Gateway.
Verify power to the Internet Gateway. Disconnect and reconnect power to the Internet Gateway. Blue and green LEDs should blink on and off a few times when the Internet Gateway is initially powered.
Check the Ethernet cable connections between the Internet Gateway and router or network switch. Confirm the router is operating.
Check if the router is incompatible with the Internet Gateway. Go to LiftMaster.com/MvQ-CD03in6 look for the
Commercial Door ODerator MvQ Incompatible Router and Switch Guide.
Connect the Internet Gateway to a different LAN port on the router.
Determine if a router setting is preventing the Internet Gateway from obtaining an IP address (e.g. MAC address filtering, firewall settings).
• Review the router’s settings and manual.
• Router must be set to DHCP to provide an IP address to the Internet Gateway.
• The Internet Gateway requires UDP port 80 to have a UDP timeout of 180 sec or greater.
Reset the router. Disconnect power to the router for 30 seconds. Reconnect power to the router. Wait up to 5 minutes after the router is active to determine if the green LED on the Internet Gateway is illuminated solid or blinking.
Green LED on the Internet Gateway is blinking
If the green LED on the Internet Gateway is blinking, the Internet Gateway has obtained an IP address from the router, but the Internet Gateway is not connecting to the MyQ Server.
Determine if a router setting (e.g. firewall setting) is preventing the Internet Gateway from communicating with the Internet.
• Review the router’s settings and manual.
• The Internet Gateway requires UDP port 80 to have a UDP timeout of 180 sec or greater.
Determine if a network security appliance (firewall, e.g. SonicWALL®, ZyWall) is installed.
• Determine if the network security settings are preventing connection of the Internet Gateway to the Internet.
• The Internet Gateway requires UDP port 80 to have a UDP timeout of 180 sec or greater. SonicWALL®’s UDP timeout must be adjusted to be 180 sec or longer for both inbound and outbound data traffic.
The problems listed above are caused by SonicWALL’s factory default UDP connection timer being set to 30 seconds which closes the Internet Gateway connection to the server after the Internet Gateway enters its sleep state and reduces communication to the server to once every 60 seconds. When this occurs, the Internet Gateway will take up to 2 minutes to recognize the connection to the server is lost before trying to re-establish connection. The process will continue to repeat.
When a MyQ device is behind a SonicWALL Network Appliance, the following MyQ app performance issues may occur:
1. Difficulty controlling a MyQ device through the MyQ app.
2. Manual operation of a MyQ device may not change state on the MyQ app (commercial door is closed by pressing wall control, but app shows door open).
3. Upon power cycling of an Internet Gateway the app will work for a brief period of time and then enter a non-working state.
The SonicWALL UDP connection timer should be changed to 120 seconds or greater. LiftMaster recommends a minimum value of 180 seconds. The timer must be changed in multiple locations.
1. The default UDP timer should be changed, which will change the UDP connection timer for any new rule made to the SonicWALL.
2. Any current LAN -> WAN rules must have the UDP connection timeout updated manually. Set “Defualt UDP Connection Timeout (seconds):” to “360" and set “UDP Connection Inactivity Timeout (seconds):" to “360”.
