Garage door opner

socalsalDecember 18, 2007

Hi, I have a Sears garage door opner. My problem is that if push the remote (wall mount or car ) the door will open fine. Now if I try to close it I have to hold the button down to keep it closing. It will stop and reverse itself if I fail to hold button down untill it closes.

What may be causing this and how do I adjust this.

Thanks for any help you may provide.

Check the alignment of the sensors in the doorway. Each of them has a small light that must be on and not blinking for them to work properly. Tweak them until the lights are both on.
