What does an orange light mean on a garage door sensor?
Thereof, what does yellow light mean on garage door sensor?
The sending sensor, which has the yellow light, transmits the infrared beam to the receiving sensor, which has a green light. The yellow sending sensor light should always be lit. But you'll only see the receiving sensor's green light when the sensors are aligned and unobstructed.
Also, how do I know if my garage door sensor is bad? If the door goes up but goes down only when you hold down the wall switch, check to see that the safety sensors are in alignment. The small light on each sensor should be lit up when nothing is between them. Door sensors do go bad, so if no light is showing at all, you may need to replace them.
Also know, what color are garage door sensors supposed to be?
They are usually black in color and will have small green or red LED lights.
Should both lights be green on garage door sensors?
Look at the sensors, there should be a light on each sensor. If not one of them has probably been bumped or kicked. They should both be green. Just eye them up to look at each other until the lights both come on strong and steady.
