  1. Thank you for your question. The light flashing most likely means the control has detected a fault. The light should blink out the code, then pause and repeat. Check if the light is flashing a particular number of times. If you can reply with a model number I can give you more specific information.

      The light blinks 5 times.

      Blinking 5 times indicates a RPM sensor failure. The first thing to try with this error is to unplug the opener for a minute then plug it back in to see if it will reset. You can try to disconnect the door and then see if the motor will run. If the motor will run then the sensor likely needs to be replaced. If the motor does not run then the motor or logic board may be the problem. With the door released see it it will raise and lower manualy.
