Default Garage door won’t open

Just moved in and problem with garage door. Romac MVP model. Yesterday when we came home, main garage door wouldn’t open. Door operator light (work light) on unit and red led on back of operator turn on, then red led turns off. Push button again and operator clicks and red led comes on then goes off. This happens using any of the remotes or the inside wall switch. Golf cart door works fine from same remotes.
Any ideas what is wrong?

Check to be sure the "lock" button on the wall switch is not locked on.

It is in the “unlock” position.

Chain may need adjustment.

Check that there is nothing blocking the sensor on the main door and that they're aligned. If you just moved in call warranty dep't they'll tell you how to handle it.

You did not state if the RED LED is on or flashing, see attached chart. Also, if you are getting the "stuck relay" indication, there are 2 travel stop cams on the chain, if one of these falls off the associated switch on top of the motor unit will not operate, and the door is stuck in either the open or close position. While relatively easy to replace the cam, adjusting these is tricky.
Hope this helps.
