Wayne Dalton I-Drive garage door opener starts to close door...

Wayne Dalton I-Drive garage door opener starts to close door and then reverses. If you try again to close it, it might close or it might take several tries to get it to close the door.

I-Drives are nice but can be quirky. I have had two of them for 5 years. I had so many problems with the first two, Wayne Dalton replaced them both for free. I have to give the company top ratings for customer service. But i still have occasional issues.

one of the problems which you mention is that the door will reverse, as if it had hit an obstruction, at the bottom or maybe even a fraction of an inch from the bottom. I solved this by putting spacers ( 3/4" inch boards) under the door before programming it. it then thought the bottom of the travel was 3/4" above the shut position. then i removed the boards and it works much better.

I think the problem is that there is too fine a line between it sensing an obstruction and the bottom. The spacer increases the wiggle room by 3/4" which seems to work.

I have a quantum garage door opener Model # 3000, series 3412 . . Wwen I depress the remote opener, the door moves about 1 foot and then stops. Each time I press the remote the door closes 1 more foot and stops again I need help . The light flashes and according to the manual it means that the safety device is defective . Please give me guidance or advice. Please email your reply to <email> or <phone> . Thank you... Adolph Lovler

I have found that the openers are VERY sensitive to the door being correctly balanced. I had a similar problem; door would close then immediately reopen. Called cust. serv. and they were big help. They walk you through a series of tests and I.D. the problem. Mine is a torsion bar door so I found my springs were just a little too tight; too much "Up" pull on door. I backed off spring one fourth of a turn and that was all it took. It has worked perfectly for over two years since. Hope this helps.

Mine did the same thing. Had the circuit board in the unit replaced and haven't had any problems since.

Where did you get the circuit board?
