Chamberlain Yellow Button - Program Travel

Chamberlain Yellow Button – This video demonstrates how to program the travel on a Chamberlain garage door opener with a yellow learn button.

The adjustments allow you to program where the door will stop in the open (UP) and close (DOWN) position. The electronic controls sense the amount of force required to open and close the door. The force is adjusted automatically when you program the travel.

If a garage door opener forces are set too lightly door travel may be interrupted, by reversals in the down direction and stops in the up direction. Because weather can affect the door movement, occasional adjustments may also be needed.

WARNING
Without a properly installed safety reversal system, persons (particularly small children) could be SERIOUSLY INJURED or KILLED by a closing garage door. Incorrect adjustment of garage door travel limits will interfere with the proper operation of the safety reversal system. Too much force on the garage door will interfere with the proper operation of the safety reversal system.NEVER use force adjustments to compensate for a binding or sticking garage door. After ANY adjustments are made, the safety reversal system MUST be tested. The door MUST reverse on contact with a 1-1/2″ (3.8 cm) high object (or 2×4 laid flat) on the floor.
CAUTION
To prevent damage to vehicles, be sure the fully open door provides adequate clearance.

As of November 15, 2020, Security+ 2.0 Garage Door Openers are now manufactured with obstruction notifications in the event the garage door encounters an obstruction while operating.

For existing Security+ 2.0 Wi-Fi Garage Door Openers that are connected to Wi-Fi, the firmware has been updated automatically so it will now provide obstruction notifications. Note: The garage door opener must be connected to Wi-Fi in order for the update to occur.

If the opener is not a Wi-Fi-enabled Garage Door Opener and is within the warranty time frame, the logic board can be replaced. Replacing the logic board will provide obstruction notifications once it is installed.

Obstruction Notifications

  • If the door makes contact with an obstruction while opening, the door will stop, the opener will beep and the lights will flash five (5) times.
  • When the door is in any position other than closed and the garage door opener is activated, the door will close.
  • If the garage door makes contact with an obstruction while closing, the door will reverse, the opener will beep and the lights will flash 5 times.
