    When I push the garage door opener, the door does not open and just beeps also with the remote control

    Every time I turn off the light on the opener controller, it comes back on in about a minute.

    The motion sensing light feature is enabled as a standard feature.  To turn-off the motion sensor, press and hold the LIGHT button on the door control console for about 3 seconds.  The operator will beep to acknowledge the change.  To toggle back just press and hold the LIGHT button again.

    Don't see anywhere where I can buy a replacement belt?

    The Deluxe Door Control Console is supplied with a special cable with a plug on the end.  The plug must be plugged unto the "wall control" port on the back of the opener.  If the same terninals as the push button are being used, the control will funtion similar to a push button.

    Reference installation manual instructions from a model 425, 428, 628 in which the deluxe control is standard.  If the plug has been cut from the cable and cannot be spliced, a service part is available.    https://www.adhguardianusa.com/sites/default/files/GU-0003-Door%20Contro...

    I just installed a new Deluxe Wall Console to operate my new Guardian Garage Door Opener 415. When I push either the "Lock" or "Light" button the door opens or closes. I have reversed the two wires and the same problem exists. The new opener works fine with the single open/close button. Is the console defective or is there something that I need to do other than simply attach the wires? Does the door opener have to be programed to recognize the wall control unit? Thanks!
