The slider that pulls the door open seems to be "stuck" in

Customer Question

The slider that pulls the door open seems to be "stuck" in the open position. I get a buzzing sound when I try to close the door.

OK, I'm going to open this up to my colleagues so one of them can help. Please don't respond (even to acknowledge this post)until you get a response from us. If you respond first it will only delay your answer.

This is a gen***** *****nk to a garage opener illustration. I believe you are refering to the traveler as the slider.
Expert:  Machinc replied 10 months ago.
This part usually has a pin/,or screw / keeper that sludes in and enables the traveler to move as the door is opened.
Expert:  Machinc replied 10 months ago.
When a part falls out of the traveler (pin, screw, etc. ) the door often will do what you are describing.

You should be able you up? Gind the missing part under your car or where you park or up against the garage wall.

Expert:  Machinc replied 10 months ago.
They have been found it in the back of trucks and inside convertibles. However it is usually somewhere close to the opener.
