Garage door closes but doesn't stay closed

if nothing is obstructing the door then there are 2 possibilities:
a) your limit switch for closing is too low and the closer detects the motor stall as the floor is reached, then opens in case it's a kid under the door.
b) your tracks and garage door are mis-aligned, causing excessive force to trigger the reversal. Make sure the door closes easily by hand.

I just installed a Sears Craftsman 1/2 HP Garage Door opener. As I was doing the adjustment to keep the door closed, it closed too tight. I disengaged and confirmed the door arm was set wrong so I fixed...

Use the emergency release handle to release the door. Run the opener to the open position until it stops. Close the door until it stops. Now re engage the the door.

Can you use a Genie Safe T Beam replacement kit on my craftsman garage door opener?

This has never come up before but I seriously doubt it. Most manufacturers have different ways of doing the same thing. They want to sell their own parts.

Garage door light beam one green the other yellow - light on yellow does not go out even when you block the beam

For Genie openers, normal operation is: when you block the beam, green light on one side stays on, while the red light on the other side flashes. The side with the green light is just a "dumb" infrared (invisible) light source; it doesn't know or care what happens to the beam. The other side is the receiver (photocell), and has all the smarts, so knows when the beam is broken, flashes (or turns off) its light, and sends appropriate signal to the opener to prevent or reverse door closing. I'm sure Chamberlain works basically the same way. The colored (visible) lights are to aid in setup (aiming), and for verifying operation.

My garage door opener reaches the laser beam and goes back up

Have checked to make shur nothing on the Door is sticking out into the path of the beam. Most door I know of are set so that anythig breaking the beam, while the door is in motion, will send it back up. the beam dosnt stop being looked at till the doors been all the way closed for a second or two.

You might want to look at the part of the door that reaches the laser just before it goes back up, it dosent take much to break the beam, a piece of string could do it.

Hope this Helps
