Why is my garage door suddenly reversing when going down?


Deb, that reversal is a child safety device - if the bottom edge of the door detects contact with any object, it'll immediately reverse so it doesn't kill a child. Or a cat, dog, whatever.

The opener mechanism should have a stop switch that prevents the door from closing hard against the floor - that stop switch needs to be adjusted so that the door will stop JUST before hard contact. That'll take care of it "bouncing" off the floor & reversing. As to it reversing before it touches the floor... examine both guide rails closely to see if there's any obstruction that the door's bottom edge may be contacting to trigger the child protection reversal switch.

The only thing that will cause the main light to flash 10 times and the door to reverse to the open position is a sensor problem. Make sure the light on each sensor is on and not flickering ever so slightly. Make sure they are not moving when the door starts to close. Lights on sensors should not blink. One light should stay on constantly and the other sensors light should go off when you block the sensors.

Anytime the main light flashes 10 times and the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have bad sensors.

Craftman garage door opener closes via the key pad and immediately reverses and reopens. have adjusted travel limit as well as force. Any suggestions


If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a little. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have bad sensors or the wiring to them.

The door goes part way down then reverses itself and goes back up and stops


If when the door reverses the main light flashes 10 times you have a door sensor problem. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering.

If the main light does not flash when the door reverses you can try increasing the 'down force'. This control is found on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go.

If that doesn't help you probably have a bad infrared sensor board. This is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor.

Is the belt or part of the opener hitting on the door as it trys to go down? Since if the door is down the opener goes all the way down, it seems that it might be hitting / binding on the door somewhere and then reverses.

When i press the control the door goes down about a foot and then comes back up and shuts off.I checked for obstructions on the sensors and did not find anything wrong


If the main lights flash 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem. Make sure they are aligned and that the small light on each of them is lit and not flickering. If you can't get both lights to come on you most likely have a sensor that has failed.

If the main lights do not flash when the door reverses you most likely have a bad RPM sensor board. This is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor and is what causes the door to reverse when it hits an obstacle.

You can also try increasing the down force adjustment which is on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. This will affect the safety reversing of the door so don't turn it too far.

Door opens after closing


If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem but if the door is hitting the floor and reversing and the main light is not flashing then the door is closing too far and the safety thinks it has hit something. On the side of the motor unit you will find 2 controls. One of these is the 'down limit'. Turn this in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover until the door closes but does not reverse.

Craftsman GDO reverses itself when the door reaches the eyes


The only thing that will cause the main light to blink 10 times is a sensor problem. Sometimes the sensors will be misaligned just enough to turn the light on but will not work properly. If you look really close (on your knees) you can see the receiving sensor blinking ever so slightly. Tweak the sensors until the light glows constant.
