Remove power from the opener. Then, pull the red release rope and manually lift open the door. It should move with little effort. Next, pull the door halfway down and let go. The door should stay where you left it. If it fails either test, the door lift springs need replacement or adjustment. If it works ok, follow the proceedure in the owners manual for adjusting the up and down limit sensors, and the emergency reverse adjustment.

Guardian garage door open will not close, it beeps 12 times


optic sensor issue most likely. check alignment, check wire for breaks, check staples shorting out wires. it you hold the wired wall button and the door closes, then it is a sensor issue. you can also just jump the terminals where the wires connect on the opener motor and see if it works normally, if so, again the sensors are the issue.

Garage door opener not working


Sensor must show steady light to close circuit and let opener work. If aligned, then there is a loose or broken wire. Try reaiming first to get steady light. Then check all wires . Another way to test and prove that is the issue is if u hold down the wired button at ur back door and the opener closes, then it is sensor issue. Good luck.

How to fix my garage door opener?


I'm assuming you mean that it won't close, only open? If that's the case then your eye beams may need to be adjusted. The wall button can override the sensors whereas the remotes can not.

Door not closing


with the door open, look at the latch mechanism.. it is usually a two finger item or a one finger item that hooks on the stud or heavy bar mounted on the body door facing..these fingers must be in alignment in order for the door to close..while working the door release try to reset thes fingers by opening them up by hand as wide as they will go..some are spring loaded and may pop back to preset position.. now if the door has been"sprung" it will need readjusted to fit the body of the car..(was there an accident with the car or did a gust of wind pull the door open?)..this issue can be addressed by a body shop...good luck..

My fridge door will not close. When I try to close it, it just pops open. Looks like the rubber layer on the inside doesn't stick. Please help!


Possible that the gaskets is worn out, damaged or the magnetic seal is weak. you can clean the inside of the gaskets and the face of the door where the seal is in contact.
If this wont solve check the alignment of the door, hinges.
Finally check the magnetic strength.

My door locks wont stay locked when put in the locked position


Many Chrysler vehicles won't let you lock your keys in. If locked from the inside, or locked before closed, the doors unlock upon closing. If you don't have a remote, you'll have to lock the doors with the key after you close them.

1999 Chevrolet Venture Power sliding door opens back up after closing. I have cleaned the contacts on the door post and on the door itself. There is nothing in the way, ie: weatherstripping or seat belts....


simple door latch, try unplugging the power and see if the door opens, if it does its not the motor. if the door is out of alignment it wont latch. if the latch in the door is broke it wont latch. try locking the door when its closed.

Garage door doesn't close properly


I too am having the same issue. I replaced my console control because my garage door was unresponsive and that fixed that issue. Now I have to hold the button down sometimes double tapping the button and then holding it down to close it. I believe the first place to check is the limit switch. Look at your owners manual or get online help in adjusting that. If that does not work you may need a new logic board. As far as the sensors go, one is a sender and one is a receiver. They have indicator lights and when they are aligned they light up. Check those first as a logic board is usually alot more expensive. Check ebay though as I did as there are plenty of good used parts available. Just get the numbers off of your logic board so you know what to look for as far as model number and date of manufacture. Good Luck.
