garage door acting as if there is an obstruction

abbey_cnyJanuary 29, 2014

I have a liftmaster garage door opener which currently is acting erratically. When I try to close it the door will go down a few inches, or else it will go down almost entirely. Then it stops, goes back up, and the light in the opener blinks 7-8 times. If I keep trying to close the door, it will successfully close on the 3rd or 4th try. If this continues I will call someone to fix it, but I am just trying to find out what the problem may be so I am prepared with some information ahead of time.
Thanks for any assistance.

Does your opener require lubrication?
First disengage the opener and manually operate the door.
This will tell you if you have a door or opener problem.
