Why is my Chamberlain garage door opener beeping?
We’ll show you what to do if your Chamberlain garage door opener is beeping
Ever wondered why your Chamberlain garage door opener is beeping? Everything seems fine; your door opens and closes, and then it starts an annoying beep.
Well, it’s not always a sign of trouble. That beep could be letting you know it’s operating normally. But at other times, it could indicate a serious issue with the garage door.
To decipher these beeps, you need to know two things: the type of opener you have and the number of beeps you hear.
In this guide, we aim to help you figure out whether the beep from your garage door is just a confirmation sound or an indication of a serious issue.
Chamberlain's automatic garage door openers are powered by myQ. That gives you app control and linking to Amazon Key, for in-garage deliveries to defeat porch pirates.
Troubleshoot your Chamberlain garage door opener beeping
There are three main reasons your Chamberlain myQ garage door opener would beep. These include operating on battery backup, an issue with Wi-Fi connectivity, or if Security+2.0 is announcing movement or an issue.
If your Chamberlain garage door opener has Security+2.0
You will hear one beep when the garage door opener is placed into limit or learn modes. It will also beep once when the Up or Down arrows are pressed.
If the garage door closes unattended, it will beep for eight seconds before starting to close, then continuously beep while the door is closing.
If an obstruction occurs
If the door hits anything when closing, it will stop, beep once and the lights will flash five times.
If your myQ garage door opener has Wi-Fi

- One beep: When putting the garage door opener into Wi-Fi mode.
- Continuous beep: While the garage door is trying to connect to the router.
- Two beeps: While in Wi-Fi mode, the opener is trying to reach the myQ server.
