ProblemCause/Solutions
REMOTE CONTROL DOES NOT WORK1. Check the battery inside of the remote control and/or try another remote control.
2. Check to see which LEDs are illuminated on the circuit board. For normal operating conditions the only LEDs that should be illuminated are the stop input at terminal 9 and Limit Switch 1 input if the gate is in the fully open position or Limit Switch 2 input if the gate is in the fully closed position.
3. If any of the input LEDs are illuminated on terminals 4, 5, 7 or 10, disconnect wires from that input terminal that is illuminated until the LED is extinguished to determine which input device may be stuck in an on condition.
4. If it is the radio receiver that appears to be stuck in an on condition, check all remote controls to see if any of them are stuck on.
5. Make sure that there is power (10 to 16 VDC) to the receiver on terminals 8 and 12 and make sure that the circuit breaker button is pressed in.
6. If a click is heard while the remote control is being pressed and there is no response from the operator, check all receiver connections.
7. If there is still no response, see GATE WILL NOT OPEN OR CLOSE.

GATE TRAVELS TOO FAR OR NOT FAR ENOUGH1. Adjust the gate sensitivity. If the gate sensitivity adjustment is too sensitive, the gate may stop in mid-travel.
2. It may be necessary to lubricate any mechanical parts on the gate including wheels and rollers and clean the track of any debris.
3. Check the limit switch input LEDs on terminals 1 and 3 to see if either one is illuminated. If one of the limit switch input LEDs is illuminated and the gate has traveled too far or not far enough, this indicates that the limits of travel may need adjustment. Adjust the limits of travel. This adjustment may change slightly as the chain stretches due to normal wear and it may change dramatically if the chain has been retightened or the limit plate is accidentally left not engaged with the limit nuts.
4. If the limit nut has traveled past a limit switch, check the limit switch and all limit switch connections.
5. Watch the stop input LED on terminal 9 while the gate operator is running and see if the LED flickers or extinguishes. This may indicate a faulty stop input device or a poor connection between the stop input terminal 9 and common.
6. If the stop input LED on terminal 9 flickers or extinguishes check all connections to the stop input device and/or replace faulty device.
GATE BEGINS TO OPEN OR CLOSE, THEN STOPS OR REVERSES1. Adjust the gate sensitivity. If the gate sensitivity adjustment is too sensitive, the gate may stop in mid-travel or reverse.
2. It may be necessary to lubricate any mechanical parts on the gate including wheels and rollers and clean the track of any debris.
3. Watch the input LEDs on terminals 4, 5, 7 and 10 while the gate operator is running to see if any of the LEDs flicker or illuminate.
4. If there is an input LED that flickers or illuminates while the gate is running, disconnect the wires one at a time from that input terminal until the LED does not flicker or illuminate to determine which input device may be activating.
5. If it is the radio receiver that appears to be stuck in the on condition, check all remote controls to see if any of them may be stuck on. A stuck transmitter may cause the gate operator to reverse.
GATE WILL NOT OPEN OR CLOSETest the operator to find out whether the open input devices are functioning by following these steps:
1. If a remote control is being used to open the gate, try another remote control or try using a push button if there is one installed.
2. If a push button is being used try using another push button or a remote control.
3. If there is no push button installed the gate may be operated by connecting a jumper wire to terminal 8 and momentarily touching it to terminal 5 or 7.
4. If the remotes are not working, see REMOTE CONTROL DOES NOT WORK.
5. Check the manual release switch to make sure it is in the operate (up) position.
6. Check to see which LEDs are illuminated on the circuit board. For normal operating conditions the only LEDs that should be illuminated are the stop input at terminal 9 and Limit Switch 1 input if the gate is in the fully open position or Limit Switch 2 input if the gate is in the fully closed position.
7. If any of the input LEDs are illuminated on terminals 4, 5, 7 or 10, disconnect wires from that input terminal that is illuminated until the LED is extinguished to determine which input device may be stuck.
8. If the stop input LED on terminal 9 is not illuminated, check the stop input device if any are installed and all connections to the device. If no stop input device is installed make sure that there is a jumper between terminals 8 and 9 and that it is securely fastened.
9. Check the circuit breaker button. If the circuit breaker is tripped, press it back in.
10. Make sure there is power to the circuit board on terminals 13 and 14.
THE GATE WILL NOT STOP OR REVERSE WHEN IT MEETS AN OBSTRUCTIONAdjust the gate sensitivity. The operator needs to be adjusted for more sensitivity. This is done by turning the open and close gate sensitivity adjustments clockwise for more sensitivity.
GATE WILL NOT STAY CLOSED1. Make sure that the Right/Left Side operation switch is in the correct position. If the Right/Left Side operation switch is in the incorrect position, the auto close timer feature may be working in reverse and telling the gate operator to open after the auto close time has elapsed.
2. Check to see if any input LEDs on terminals 4, 5 or 7 flicker or illuminate when the gate gets to the closed position.
3. If any of the input LEDs flicker or illuminate on terminals 4, 5, or 7, disconnect wires from that input terminal that is illuminated until the LED is extinguished to determine which input device may be activating.
TIMER WILL NOT CLOSE THE GATE1. Make sure that the Right/Left Side operation switch is in the correct position. If the Right/Left Side operation switch is in the incorrect position, the auto close timer feature may be working in reverse and telling the gate operator to open instead of close after the auto close time has elapsed.
2. Make sure the auto close timer switch is in the ON position. The auto close timer switch is located on the right edge of the circuit board.
3. Adjust the amount of auto close time. The auto close time may be set too high and is simply taking a long time to close. Do not continue pressing the remote control or other open or safety input devices because each time an open or a safety input is given the timer will reset and begin counting over.
OPERATOR RUNS IN ONLY ONE DIRECTION1. Check to see which LEDs are illuminated on the circuit board. For normal operating conditions the only LEDs that should be illuminated are the stop input at terminal 9 and Limit Switch 1 input if the gate is in the fully open position or Limit Switch 2 input if the gate is in the fully closed position.
2. If any of the input LEDs are illuminated on terminals 4, 5, 7 or 10, disconnect wires from that input terminal that is illuminated until the LED is extinguished to determine which input device may be stuck.

Chamberlain CSO gate opener troubleshooting

SituationProbable Cause & Solution
The opener doesn't operate from either the door control or the remote control:1. Does the opener have electric power? Plug a lamp into the outlet. If it doesn't light, check the fuse box or the circuit breaker. (Some outlets are controlled by a wall switch.)
2. Have you disabled all door locks? Review installation instruction warnings 3. Is there a build-up of ice or snow under the door? The door may be frozen to the ground. Remove any restriction.
4. The garage door spring may be broken. Have it replaced.
5. Repeated operation may have tripped the overload protector in the motor. Wait 15 minutes. Try again.
Opener operates from the remote control but not from the door control:1. Is the door control button lit? If not, Remove the bell wire from the opener terminal screws. Short the red and white terminals by touching both terminals at the same time with a piece of wire. If the opener runs, check for a faulty wire connection at the door control, a short under the staples, or a broken wire.
2. Are the wiring connections correct?
The door operates from the door control, but not from the remote control:1. Does the battery test light glow when the remote control push button is pressed? If not, replace the battery.
2. Program the receiver to match the remote control code.
3. Repeat the receiver programming procedure with all remote controls.
The remote control has short range:1. Check the battery test light. If the light is dim, change the battery.
2. Change the location of the remote control in your car.
3. Check to be sure the antenna on the back panel of opener extends fully downward.
4. Some installations may have shorter range due to a metal door, foil backed insulation, or metal garage siding. Install Antenna Kit, Part No. 41A3504, to increase range.
Opener noise is disturbing in living quarters of home:If operational noise is a problem because of proximity of the opener to the living quarters, the Vibration Isolator Kit 41A3263 can be installed. This kit was designed to minimize vibration to the house and is easy to install.
The garage door opens and closes by itself:1. Be sure that all remote control push buttons and battery indicator lights are off.
2. Remove the bell wire from the door control terminals and operate from the remote control only. If this solves the problem, the door control is faulty (replace), or there is an intermittent short on the wire between the door control and the opener.
The door doesn't open completely:1. If the door has been working properly but now doesn't open all the way, increase the up force.
2. Is something obstructing the door? Remove the obstruction or repair the door.
3. If door opens at least 5 feet, the travel limits may need to be increased. One turn equals 2 inches of travel. Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete.
The door stops but doesn't close completely:Review the travel limits adjustment procedures. Repeat the safety reverse test after any adjustment of door arm length, close force or down limit.
The door opens but won't close:1. If the opener lights blink, check the safety reversing sensor.
2. If the opener lights do not blink and it is a new installation, check the down force. See Adjustment Step 2. For an existing installation, see below. Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete.
The door reverses for no apparent reason and opener light doesn't blink:1. Is something obstructing the door? Pull the manual release handle. Operate the door manually. If it is unbalanced or binding, call for professional garage door service.
2. Clear any ice or snow from the garage floor area where the door closes.
3. Review the force adjustment procedures. Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete.
4. If door reverses in the fully closed position, decrease the travel limits (page 24). Repeat safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete. The need for occasional adjustment of the force and limit settings is normal. Weather conditions in particular can affect door travel.
The door reverses for no apparent reason and opener light blinks for 5 seconds after reversing:Check the safety reversing sensor. Remove any obstruction or align the receiving eye.
The opener light... doesn't turn on:
Replace the light bulb (75 watts maximum). Use a standard neck garage door opener bulb if regular bulb bums out.
... doesn't turn off:
There may be a defective ground at the ceiling or wall receptacle. The unit must be grounded.
The opener strains or maximum force is needed to operate door:The door may be out of balance or the springs are broken. Close the door and use the manual release handle to disconnect the trolley. Open and dose the door manually.
A properly balanced door will stay in any point of travel while being supported entirely by its
springs. If it does not, disconnect the opener and call for professional garage door service. Do not increase the force to operate the opener.
The opener motor hums briefly, then won't work:1. The garage door springs are broken. See above.
2. If the problem occurs on the first operation of the opener, door may be locked. Disable the door lock. If the chain was removed and re-installed, the motor may be out of phase. Remove the chain; cycle the motor to the down position. Observe the drive sprocket. When it turns in a clockwise direction and stops in the down position, reinstall the chain. Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete.
The opener won't operate due to power failure:1. Use the manual release rope and handle to disconnect the trolley. The door can be opened and closed manually. When power is restored, press the door control button and trolley will automatically reconnect (unless trolley is in lockout position.)
2. The Outside Quick Release accessory (for use on garages with no service door) disconnects the trolley from outside the garage in case of power failure.
The chain droops or sags:It is normal for the chain to droop slightly in the closed door position. Use the manual release rope and handle to disconnect the trolley. If the chain returns to the normal height when the trolley is disengaged and the door reverses on a one-inch board (or a 2x4 laid flat), no adjustments are needed.

The name of the Chamberlain brand speaks for itself. One of the leaders on the gate opener market, the company sells its products both in the US and abroad through a wide dealership network.
