sounds like a problem with the receiver unit on the opener. maybe a relay is tyring to close when you push the remote, thus the clicking sound... maybe it is sticking and not closing all the way. locate the reciever unit..and tap on it when you press the remote button to see if it will close all the way. if this results in NO Joy then the receiver needs to be replaced. check on the price of a replacement on the web and or locally. may not be worth repair if your opener is very old. might be more cost effective to replace othe opener..but I would first try and repair it economically. post back with more data and troubleshooting results. the relay in the receiver is effectively doing the same thing as you when you push the wall mounted switch, which is just shorting between two of the motor control pins/terminals. good luck LJ
