Wayne Dalton Garage Door won't close

I have a Wayne Dalton WD-320 chain drive garage door opener. It was installed prior to our buying the house in 2003.

Last week, the door started reversing when attempting to close it - it would reverse and act like something was obstructing the sensor. I've insured the sensors are aligned and there are no obstructions. I then unhooked the garage door and closed it manually - no problem. When ''closing'' the opener without the door attached, it still reverses partway into the down cycle. I discovered the ''down force'' setting was set to low/normal, and I increased this into the mid-normal range, but that didn't help either. Any ideas?

SOURCE: garage door stops and reverses either way-up or down-

If the light on the opener flashes when this happens, count the flashes (which indicate the type of problem) and consult your owners manual.  If you don't have the owners manual, you can find a digital copy online at the manufacturer's website. Also, check your manual for an adjustment that tells the opener how much resistance you want it to tolerate before reversing.

release the door from the opener and see if door moves freely the check proper torsion by moving door up to 3-4 ft if it stays in this area torsion is properly set if not call technician to adjust torsion

SOURCE: garage door opener won't close. travels 6-8 in.,

If you cannot get the light on the sensor to come on by tweaking it,making sure it is pointed at the other sensor and your wiring is not broken or shorted then your sensors need to be replaced.

Wayne dalton garage door is humming but wont open


Likely the plastic gears are worn out. Unplug the unit from power source, remove the cover, look at the gears. If worn, it will be obvious from the shavings from the gears. You can buy the gear kit on EBAY for a little as $20 depending on the manufacturer and model. Before removing the chain drive, lock a pair of vice grips on the chain and metal chain rail to keep the chain from turning from its current position. The gears can be replaced without removing the opener. Even if you have to remove the opener, it is a simple task. Most have four bolts that need to be removed and it will be in you hands.
