Customer Question

THE OPENER REVERSES FOR NO APPARENT REASON

Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you today.

Can you be a little more specific? The more information you can provide the better I can narrow down the cause of the problem.

When does it reverse? Opening? Closing?
How far does door travel before reversing?

Does this happen regardless of what device you use to operate the door?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi. Rich here.
The usual things that cause this reaction in a garage door are , sun shining on the door sensor , some thing blocking the path between the two door sensors. Or something obstructing the door from closing. It could also be the door sensors got mis-aligned.
Let me know if any of these could be causing your problem.
