Hello. My name is***** can help you with your question.

You are right about checking the obstructions – make sure that if you have the reflective infrared beam making sure that it's clear that they are in fact aligned properly. If it isn't something that's at the bottom of the door, it can be something in between that is making it difficult to close – for example a chain or a track – anything that may provide some resistance right at that point can make it reverse direction.
