If the sensor light or receiver gets kicked, it can be knocked out of alignment. If it's not aligned, it will act as though it is blocked -- in other words it will open, but not close.
I fixed my buddy's opener not long ago -- you should have two parts of the sensor, near the floor at the bottom of the door. One is an infrared light, the other is a receiver. The receiver should have a little LED on it. This glows green when it is receiving a clear signal from the other side. If your's is glowing red when you can see that the path is clear, try adjusting the aim of the infrared light. You should be able to gently move the light from side to side until you see the LED on the receiver glow green.

your garage door has saftey sensors at the door
these are photo eyes
in the owners manuel that came with the opener
that has pictures in it which would help
the photo eyes need to be clear of debri and aimed at each other with no obstruction
there are leds on each sensor and when aimes properly they should be light if i remember correctly
if you can not get them to light then you may have to replace the sensors

This indicates that the nylon gears in the unit have been stripped and need replaced. You can get new ones at searspartsdirect.com. Enter in your model number and a parts list will come up. Thanks BB

Loosen the chain enough
so that you can remove it from the sprocket above the motor unit.
With the door closed run the motor until the sprocket turns clockwise
and stops. With everything attached replace and tighten the chain.
Some adjusting of the up and down limits will probably be required.
