Help. I have a Chamberlin commercial door opener with the ‘single button’ kit installed. When I short the two wires together for a short time, the garage door opener works perfectly. I installed the GD00Z-4, and it will open the door fine, but when I try to close the door, it starts the close, and then after about 1 second, shudders, and stops. I’m pretty sure the Linear opener is ‘holding’ the button press too long. If I short the opener button manually, and keep the contacts shorted, it behaves this way.
SO, here’s the question: Is there a variable which defines the length of time that the GD00Z ‘holds’ the simulated button press?
I’ll start scouring the forums to see my question is already answered… A brief search found nothing.
Well, i am interested from another angle. I just had to replace my opener with a chamberlain and now i am not able to use the setup i had before with the relay and zwave switch plugged into an outlet. this would previously act as a garage door button and i could manage the door from vera. now it does absolutely nothing. Could you tell me a little more about the ‘single button kit’, was it different from the button that comes with it, and is there any hope for me? i think the model started with wd832. thanks
Wire it between the GD00Z and the opener by removing the 2 screws holding in the board and soldering the wires from the GD00Z to the button. The contacts you need are the ones that are shorted when be button is pressed.
