Hi. Welcome to Just Answer.
If the door will not close then you have a problem with the alignment of the sensor beam or one of the sensors is going out.
Look on the sensors and see if either one has a yellow light instead of a green light or no light at all.
If so either align them so that both lights are green or replace both of them if they will not turn green.
There are universal replacement kits available at most all hardware stores.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Best, Smitty
