Question about Sears Home Security
Door opens smoothly, but trolly rocks back & forth (not side to side) when closing as I hold the wall switch. The problem began with intermittent door reversal, now always happens, and does not even get partway down any more. I also have a newer opener that has a box beam, not a T beam track.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

That normally happens when the sensors aren't aligned. Both sensors have led lights on them the yellow/orange one will stay on all the time the green one will go out if it cant see the other sensor. Possibly theres a wire that's broken or the other sensor is really out of alignment. Check every inch of wiring from the sensor to the opener, remove wire nuts if present and check the connections. The wires that are used are small, solid and can break easily. Also see if there's a staple that's too tight, move the wire abit where it's stapled and look for damage.

What it is is the electric beams at the door are getting blinded buy the sun or out of line. They are the two black boxes on both sides of the door about a foot from the ground. Put a piece of card board in front of them not blocking the beam dut to block the sun. All that they are is safety beams for kids so they do not get hurt. If you have to move them to the top where the sun will not hit them. Sorry to say though you can not remove them all the way. Also make sure the lite on them is not blinking if so they are out of line.
Good Luck and Please Rate FixYa!
