Hi i need help. Please do not respond to tell me not to do it, I live 50 miles from town. my door is stuck open and i want it to close. the wire to one of the electric eyes broke off right at the housing of the electric eye. So the door will not close. Can you bypass this.

I would just pull the emergency release and operate the door manually until I could get a new sensor.

You can't bypass it but you can hold the button down on the wall control until the door closes. You must time this just right by releasing the button at the right moment but it is doable.
