My garage switch on the wall and my remotes will not open the garage.I unplugged the opener and then everything started back working. An hour later it all stopped again. I unpluged it again and they started back for a little while.

  • Hello, and welcome to Stack Exchange. What's the make and model of the opener? Was everything working, and then this happened? What changed? – Daniel Griscom Jun 16 '16 at 12:54
  • Thanks, it's an Overhead door Legacy 1/3 hp. Model 496CD/B.. A little over a month ago I replaced the little white plastic inner drive piece. Wife went to open it with the wall switch and nothing. I got home it worked with my remote. I figured the wall switch was bad till the remotes did not work soon after. When I unpluged it everything works for a little bit then stops. – Tim Shirley Jun 16 '16 at 22:53

This sounds like a defect in the garage opener, probably in the receiver electronics. A device like this should not stop working without warning and restart again on a "reboot".

I would look into whether you can replace the receiver without replacing the entire device.
