Wayne Dalton idrive for Torsion Springs - Solution #1: Install Custom Upper Limit to Successfully Profile

I've moved my trusted Wayne Dalton idrive for Torsion Springs to a new garage with limited space for a tradition garage door opener. But when I went to profile, it did the open/close cycle once, opened the garage door again, but will not close it. Instead, it beeped four times. Based on the "Troubleshooting" section of the instruction manual, there are three possibilities:

  • Obstruction encountered.
  • Infrared sensor alignment.
  • Out-of-balance condition detected.

I eliminated infrared sensor alignment, because I watched the sensors and the LED is on. And I checked the balance of the door manually and it seems fine. So my guess is that the idrive thinks there is an obstruction. Seeing the motion, I am guessing the idrive is either having a hard time starting the motion when the door is on top or it feels the obstruction at the very bottom. I noticed that the idrive raises the door all the way to the top and it could require a lot of torque to start the closing motion. So I figured by setting installing a lower custom upper limit could help me identify the problem.

The "Install Custom Upper Limit Routine" steps are described on page 21 of the instruction manual. Using it during profiling, the idrive was able to complete the entire profiling routine successfully, identifying that the problem was the garage door being raised too high.
