Garage Door only Closes when I hold Down the Button on the Wall Control
opener works if I hold the button down continually
but remote closer will not close
It will open but will not close
Problem is with the infrared safety sensors, located on each side of your Garage Door, a few inches above the floor.
In most cases, they are simply out of alignment. The beam from the sending unit must strike the lens of the receiver. It takes a slight rotational bend of the sending units bracket, in the right direction, to get them back in alignment.
Occasionally, the problem can be the wiring or bad sensors.
Check the wiring between the sensors and the opener to make sure the wires are not pinched or broken.
If the sensors are bad, the indicator light will be out on one or both of the sensors.
Hope this helps,
