If the sensor light or receiver gets kicked, it can be knocked out of alignment. If it's not aligned, it will act as though it is blocked -- in other words it will open, but not close.
I fixed my buddy's opener not long ago -- you should have two parts of the sensor, near the floor at the bottom of the door. One is an infrared light, the other is a receiver. The receiver should have a little LED on it. This glows green when it is receiving a clear signal from the other side. If your's is glowing red when you can see that the path is clear, try adjusting the aim of the infrared light. You should be able to gently move the light from side to side until you see the LED on the receiver glow green.

Most likely your door sensors have been bumped and are not aligned properly. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not blinking.

I had a simular issue, except mine was that the previous owner decided to mess with all the settings and mounts and screwed everything up.
The problem isn't your force sensors its your downwards stopping sensor on the opposite side of the opener. For me I had to take the entire panel off and replace the sensor back in its holder, but try adjusting that sensor setting (clockwise goes down, counterclockwise goes up).
If that doesn't work then i dunno:)
Also set both force settings in between 0-1, for some reason with mine if i set it higher it would set them off....

ADJUST THE DOWN LIMIT IT THINKS THERE IS AN OBSTRUCTION AND IS REVERSING LIKE IT SHOULD.
TURN THE LIMIT ABOUT 1/4 TURN AT A TIME.
HOPE THIS HELPS
