It sounds like the safety sensors arent lined up properly

or not wired . They should face each other with an uninterupted line of sight.

If they are lined up and still not working check the wiring. Check for loose connections. There other possibilities but these are the most common. If this does not fix the problem check the control board . I will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

The control board could be bad but it is not likely for a new one. Check the wire connections on the board and its power connections.
