SOURCE: what does the reversal kit consist of

As far as I know there isn't any "kit" needed to switch a door. It's just a matter of taking out a bunch of screws, reversing some door parts, and putting it all back together. Here's a link that shows how to do it for one model which is typical:

About all you need is a phillips-head driver and maybe a small putty knife to pry out the filler plugs from the holes you'll be using.

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.

Tip

How to safety check your garage door opener


Place a 2x4 (or other object that is solid and about 2" thick)flat on the ground in the middle of the door. Activate the opener and lower the door until it makes contact with the 2x4. It should hit the 2x4 and then reverse in the upward direction. It can put pressure on the 2x4 just not stay there. If it reverses then it has passed. If it stays down then find the down force adjustment on the opener and turn it down. This adjustment can be found in your manual and will differ in location from brand to brand of garage door opener. Check the belt/chain for slack when it is running(there is no need to check this on a worm drive opener). If there is more than 3/4" slack then tighten it up with the tension adjuster on the trolley. Check the force adjustments per the manual as well. Do not pay attention to this slack when the door is shut as the trolley arm presses on the opener arm to gain the best seal at the bottom of the door. If you have a screw drive you can lubricate the screw with liquid graphite. All other types need none unless you want to lubricate the nylon gear inside the unit with rail grease, but be careful here and unplug the unit first. If your garage door opener has safety eyes start the door down and then cross the beam. The opener should reverse upward. If it does it passes, if not then call a reputable repair firm. Thanks BB

My gas dryer Kenmore 500 series won't start when I push the start button. The light is on in the dryer chamber. The door latches and there is gas running in it.


the one side of the door switch is bad,one side controls the light when the door is open,the other side of this switch makes the unit run when the door is closed,replace the switch,or if you dont care about the door light,reverse the 2 larger connections and it will work again,but no light with door open then

I am having the same problem the garage door won't stay down. I have leveled the sensors light beams and make sure that nothing was in the path. I have the model where the light is on front end toward...


The lights sensors are not the problem.

Garage door will reverse direction automatically if it contacts the hood of your car or a bicycle. Your garage door is coming too far down, impacting the concrete, and then reversing.

The fix is simple.

You need to adjust the tripper switch just above the garage door. When the door is closing, it trips a little lever that's attached to the center rail. It's just a little flipper with 2 wires connected to it.

Move this flipper switch back tower the closer mechanism about 3 inches >>> try garage door again >> and then adjust location of flipper until garage door works just right.

On operating my remote the garage door opens but when l try to shut the door it shuts then opens straight away the only way l can stop it is to press the remote again .There is a green light that keeps...


It sounds like the door is traveling too far, hitting the floor and then reversing to the open position. If this is the case you need to locate the 'down limit' control on the side of the motor unit and turn it a bit in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Some tweaking may be necessary to get it just right.

It is normal for that small green light to flash randomly. It can also assist in diagnosing some problems by flashing a code. It will flash a number of times and then pause and then repeat. If this is the case, post the number of flashes.

Door won't stay closed. One sensor light is green, the other side is yellow. What can I do?


The sensor colors are normal. If the main light is flashing 10 times when the door reverses it is a sensor problem. Make sure the small light on each one is not flickering ever so slightly. Tweak them a bit to make sure. If the door is reversing when it hits the floor you need to adjust the 'down limit' control on the side of the motor unit. Turn the control in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. You might also increase the 'down force' control which is on the rear of the motor unit.

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.
