Check the garage door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, and other door hardware for wear and tear. If you suspect problems, have an experienced person make repairs.
Test the Opener Reversing Mechanism
If something stops the garage door from closing, the door should reverse. Verify if the garage door operator has a reversing feature. If not, have it repaired or replaced by a certified technician.
Test the Balance
Put the garage door in a closed position and disconnect the opener before lifting the door. This should move smoothly with little resistance, and remain open. If the door is not balanced, have the door system adjusted by someone who is qualified to do so.
Test the Up-and-Down Force Setting
Hold the bottom of the door as it closes. If it fails to reverse easily, this means the force is great and has to be adjusted. Remember, if you are not experienced, do not attempt doing the repairs.
