The most common issue is that the garage door will go down and then back up. This is mostly caused by a misaligned or faulty sensor. It is recommended to clean the eye of the sensor and make sure the two sensors face each other and that both the lights are on. If one of the lights is not on, try aligning the sensors until they point each other. Another thing to do is clean the sensors eye with a dry cloth. Also make sure that there is nothing in the way of the tracks. If these steps do not solve your issue, give us a call.
If you hear a humming sound and the opener is not doing anything, most likely the gear inside the opener has broken, in this case you should call us immediately.
