Garage Door Co Repair Pros has now had several Liftmaster model 8550w Myq belt drive with battery backup and wi-fi which are not recognized by the Liftmaster MyQ servers. The problem is that when a customer tries to setup MyQ for smart phone access (Android, IPhone, browser) one of the first steps after creating the online account is to enter your MyQ serial number. The Liftmaster server reports that it does not recognize the serial number entered. After checking with Liftmaster support in Tucson, AZ it was determined that this is a known problem which they are trying to resolve.
Garage Door Co Repair Pros, an Amarr authorized garage door dealer, has just received a memo from Amarr that due to production issues the Olympus 500 and Designers Choice 500 garage doors have ceased production until 07/21/2014. Any customers ordering these doors will not be able to do this until after production resumes. Amarr also announced that the Classica 3000 series garage door will continue to have an extended lead time of 12 days in plant plus delivery - this is longer than usual 6 day but still not bad for this specialty product.
Garage Door Co Repair Pros receives calls on a regular basis from customers seeking a new remote for their Intercontinental Dynamics ESP Micom remote control transmitter (usually model T-9) and occasionally a M-9 receiver. The manufacturer has been out of business for over 20 years. There has been one after market clone transmitter but we have found it to be highly unreliable and poor quality. The universal remote controls (ie Clicker Corporation or Liftmaster 385LM) will NOT work with an ESP Micom receiver.

This is in addition to our previous post on the residential garage doors being offered by Amarr in black.
