Question: The motorized garage door is closing half way, and then reversing to open position. What is wrong with my garage door?
Answer: Most likely that you have a problem with your safety sensors. If there is an object blocking the invisible laser beam between the sensors, if your safety sensors aren’t aligned and facing each other, or if the cable which connect the sensors to the garage door motor is disconnected, the motor won’t close the door. Make sure that no one accidently moved one of the sensors, and that they are facing each other. If the problem is not solved by adjusting the sensors, please contact us, and we will repair it for you.

Question: The garage door is only open half way and stop, what is wrong with it?
Answer: There are few possibilities that can lead to that, but the most common one is a broken spring, or a spring that need to be adjust.
