Read an article recently in the Daily Mail, that if one had achieved or possessed one of a long list of items,such as a wine cave, nanny, cleaner ....), or are, like me, the proud owner of an automatic garage door- ...that one could be considered to have 'arrived'.....
However, .... I have a problem with my automatic garage door.......
................ but I wonder if you, my fellow ex-pats might be able to help ?
The fact that the light attached to the sensor alluminates, shows that it is receiving electricity and when the telecomander/remote control button is pressed, then an led flashes.....but , the fact is, that unless we switch off the fuse at the fuse box...the light on the mechanism flashes on & off continually(& the door does not work).....
I suspect that it probably needs resetting (somehow), but the previous owner left me no instruction manual(s) and the other frustrating thing is that the telecomander is Somfy, the receiver is Monseigner....I have tried looking online, but no luck !
The first electrician who originally took pictures ....has not responded to my emails, so I have to start again.
I have managed to get some more photos taken and I will try to attach them here....I think it is possible to read the details of the label, but just in case, we wrote them down.
ELECTRONIQUE DE COMMANDE RTS
MONSEIGNER ret HRB No 348/R Made in Europe
(inside the cover) >SB< 8782 329239 (& then a kind of clock face with an arrow in the middle & 03, the arrow pointing to 2 on the clock face)
(I think this must mean 2003 & February for manufacturing date)
I have no experience with these things, so I don't know if there is a magic re-set, I should also say that the whole mechanism, has been inspected from my loftiest ladder and there does not appear to be any kind of blockage.....Any (useful) suggestions please.... ?
