Can you hinge the door to the other side or have the door opening upwards? Any joiner will be able to help.

Ask for either Liftmaster garage door opener or a universal garage door opener. Most department stores like Home Depot, Lowes, etc. , Amazon and Ebay. Should not be hard to find. Have you tried Liftmaster itself? That should be your best bet.

Call Liftmaster. It appears that that opener is old and does not erase codes, you need to set them with DIP switches. Here is a link to manual. Good Luck

check travel, check door weight. Grinding comes from a ring and pinion gear set inside opener+. If you continue the gears will srip and need to be replaced, or GDO replaced.

If you are talking about wall mounted switch, yes it has a battery. Refer to your instructions that came with GDO, or google the wall mounted switch by model number for more info.

Hello, Debbie -

I hope you have the user manual for your garage door opener so you can check it to find out what the beeping sound means. If you don't have the manual, you can add the name of the garage door opener manufacturer to your question by using the Edit feature, so that I or someone else can look up information specific to that particular make of garage door opener.

Many instructions I have found for a variety of makes of garage door openers state that the beeping can mean the back up battery for the garage door opener needs replacing. See the information here:

Stairs that are properly constructed have stringers that go from the bottom to the top and rest against the joist at the top. If this is not the case you need a carpenter to tear out the existing stairs and rebuild them correctly. If the stairs are sagging due to termite damage or rot to the bottom of the stringers they need to be replaced. You could prop up the steps from below if they are accessible as a stopgap measure. A 2x6 between the most solid step and the floor below the steps would probably work.

You might consider pulling off the top step and looking to see what the situation is and screw the risers to the joist with some hefty screws if you can lift the steps with a prop from below then replace the top step.

Without more photos and information it is difficult to make any other suggestions.
