My garage door won’t close all of a sudden. I’ve checked the alignment of the sensors and I don’t think that’s the problem. In the past when the sensors have been out of alignment, I can usually just fiddle with them and fix it pretty quickly. I’ve tried adjusting them a ton and I still can’t get the door to close.
One light is green, one is Amber and they are both solid. They remain solid even when I try and close the door.
If I try to button attached to my door, the garage door will close about a foot and then go back up and make a clicking sound. If I try to close the door from one of my remotes, I’ll just get the clicking and the door won’t even try to close.
Any ideas on what I can try to fix this?
To answer a few questions raised:
It has two large springs and not just one.
A chain (looks like a bicycle chain) opens and closes the door when working correctly.
I had to disconnect it so I could shut it. Once I did that I clicked the garage button on the wall and the motor and the chain worked just fine moving down the way it would close if the door was connected. once it reached the bottom it re-connected to the door. I then clicked the button again and the door raised without any problem.
When i then clicked the button again, the same problem happens where it won’t close and it just makes a clicking sound.
Do these answers help at all?
Thanks for the answers so far.
