Ok well the best advise I can give you is to open up your opener case should be a 1/4 nut driver or a Philips head screw driver. Make sure to unplug it first. Once the case is off, find a reqtangle black box with three white plastic screws they are what controls the limits. Chances are they got knocked off wheny ou were putting in the gear. check to make sure the wires are hooked up and find the placement of the limits make sure they can touch each other. Little tip I do for my customs is get a piece of sand paper and rub it agaist the metal contacts for the limits only. (after time lift master openers bind up a film and dont stop where they supposed to.) If your still not sure how the limits work plus in the opener and run it make sure not to put your hands inside the opener and nothing esle is in the way. Then adjest the limits as needed. That should take care of you if not go ahead and make another post ill check back with you.
