Check your safety eyes. There should be a light on on each eye. If not, align the eyes so that they are pointing directly at each other. If you adjust force settings like mentioned above, do not go above 6 or you can easily damage the door if there is a problem.

When closing door with remote or the electric mounted pad it goes down about 6" then stops and goes back up 2" and then I have to hand wind it back down. fitted 2 years ago no problems until now

There is something blocking the door from closing. Look around to make sure there is nothing near it or touching it.
Once I had a rolledup screen that started to interfere with the closing. Keep all things clear from it.

My 2012 ford escape will not start nothing is working my battery is good. cannot open the door with the remote starter

Maybe the battery WAS good. If nothing is working the battery is the first place to look. When you open the door do the inside lights come on? Will the radio play with the key in Accessory position. Something could have ran the battery down and now it needs to be recharged.

Popping sound on opening Bosch dishwasher door

I just went to look at my Bosch and there really is nothing it can catch on if your kick plate is on correctly. I would feel around and make sure nothing has gotten under there like a piece of silverware. When pulling the dor down as it gets closer to the kick plate you should be able to see the kick plate start to angle back. The only other place I saw that could allow a problem is the openings for the stops on each side (Chrome pieces that are exposed as you lower the door on each side - inside, lower corners) ... maybe something got in there and is binding it up. You may have to get a professional or a handy friend out to look at it.

Garage door goes up fine but when you press to come down it goes down one foot, seems like it hits something and returns.

There is a sensor which checks for obstructions, are you sure there is nothing impeding drive path?Inspect the drive path carefully. If it reaches a part of the drive path which causes it to slip or stick slightly this will tell it not to continue. Also but less likely have you checked that the optical sensor is clean and aligned. Make sure there is nothing blocking the optics.

I have an old Kenmore garage door opener. The door will not go down. It acts like something is in the way of the electronic stoppers, but there is nothing in the way. Any ideas.???

Make sure the door sensor are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a bit. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have bad sensors.
