Allstar MVP opener has slow blinking red light

by Eric

My Allstar MVP garage door opener is blinking a slow red light. According to the manual it means that there is a stuck relay. How do I know which one is stuck?

Can I replace them individually or do I need to purchase a new control board? Any suggestions on where I can get the parts? Any help would be appreciated.


First, you have to determine whether the relay is NO (normally open) or NC (normally closed). Then you can use an ohmmeter or multimeter to determine whether it is stuck in another position.

Your Allstar dealer should have these in stock - they are not expensive. If your relays are all the same, you could simply replace each one, one at a time, to find the faulty relay.

New Control Board NEW
by: BSD

The relays in the MVP are mounted to the logic board and are not replaceable. You will need a new logic board. Generally the cost for a new logic board should be $80 to $90.

is there a manual with more detail to debug a slow blinking light? details on NO or NC relay status?

I can't find anything on line.
