    Hey Erroll, Thanks for visiting BBB Garage Doors.

    There are several reasons this might happen:

    1. Its an old openers and the motherboard is shorting
    2. its a new openers and the motherboard is faulty
    3. Someone in your neighborhood has a remote with your code on it (by mistake)
    4. the wall switch is shorting
    5. Your remote is shorting / button is stuck or very sensitive

    Possible Fixes:
    1. old opener? time for a new one (contact us – we have great prices)
    2. Reset the opener codes and re-install the remotes
    3. make sure the wall switch connection are ok
    4. remote batteries from the remote for a while

    Hope this helps. If all else fails you can always contact us to schedule a visit by a professional garage door technician.

    Have a wonderful day,
