Comments / Questions

COMMENT: Are building is equip with this controller by Donna P 5/3/2016
QUESTION: I have a PBS-3 Garage Door opener. It worked fine for 10+ years. Recently when the garage door has been stopped at about 3 feet or greater off the floor and I hit the close button, the door begins to open up further. When I hit the stop button, the door stops. If I hit the stop button and hold it in and then hit the down button, the door will close. Is this a problem with the existing three button control or is it the garage door opener? by Charles G 4/26/2016

QUESTION: We have a large shop and just purchased a second control. Is it possible to wire a second station to work on the same opener. It seems to have removed the stop capabilitles? by None N 12/26/2013
ANSWER: Yes you CAN wire the second control. Your problem with the button is most likely a wiring issue. You need to make sure that both buttons are connected in series. To verify that this is in fact your problem have both buttons pushed simultaneously.<br />If the gate stops then your buttons are connected in parallel. by E D a

ANSWER: The 'Open' and 'Close' buttons have 1 normally open contact each. The 'Stop' button has 1 normally closed contact. by Arend V a
ANSWER: Stop is normal closed which will open a holding coil in the door opener to stop the unit the other two are normally open when the up is pressed in it will allow the door to open and stop when the door fully opens on an internal limit or if a safety is tripped the door will stop. The closed has to be held in to close a door for safety reasons and it will also be shutdown should a safety limit be tripped when closing the door by James S a
