Your neighbours might have the same frequency as you. Change your code on remote and system.

One check is to use the lock feature on your hard-wired door button. This will disable ALL remotes. See if it opens on it's own. If it does it is not the remote but possible a mouse or cracked wires shorting across the opener wire to make a contact. It could be a faulty board if it does open to check this Disconnect the open wires "At" the opener, they are just push in type on most openers. If it still opens then its the board.

Hope I helped

Do you live near an airbase or military installation and find your garage door sometimes opens on its own? This is caused by interference from high power communication systems that can activate the radio receiver in your garage door opener.

Someone in your neighborhood may have the same garage door opener that you have and sharing the same code. Change your garage door opener code or buy a Genie Code Scrambler.

My craftsman garage door opener is beeping (2 hours). How can I stop it


Our garage door opener has a safety beam across the floor which prevents the door from closing on objects which are sitting there. This safety feature also makes an annoying beeping sound each time the beam is crossed. This tutorial will show you how to disable the beep, but still keep beam functional. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cn_vGe_7_x4

I have a Liftmaster Prof. 1/3 H.P. I close the garage with the garage door clicker, but when I come home hours later the garage door is OPEN. Please advise.


Very strange. I think there may be another remote being used unknowingly by someone or it is responding to someone else's garage door frequency. Is yours a rolling code type for enhanced security. If not it would be a good idea to upgrade.

Lift-Master garage door opener Model 1045-6 1/3 hp


Most residential garage door openers have a max. amount of cycles they can run per hour. Thus the difference between a residential opener which only needs to be opened a few times a day vs. a commercial opener which needs to open 10-20 times and hour. This could be your problem, you may be running too many cycles too soon. This would explain why it seems to work again after unplugging the power. You're resetting the unit. Hope this helps.
