Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
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?

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
if door does not move freely all the way up and down check for binding track alighnment and roller condition. the adjust closing pressure.

is bulb on motor flashing 10 times. then you have electric eye problem. otherwise, sounds like you need to increase down force a hair. adjustement is on logic board, right knob.

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.
