Garage Door will not close in hot weather
I have an Overhead model garage door. In any other weather, except hot, it works fine.
In hot weather, I will try to close it either with the remote or the automatic control on wall, it starts to close, gets about 1/4 of the way, and then the door reverses and goes back up.
I've tried moving the sensor wire and this doesn't help. Please let me know if there is anything else to try. Thank you
Are the indicator lights on the sensors lit up? If one is off you probably have bad sensors.
Is the one on the recieving unit flashing? You may have to get down to eye level to tell. If it is flashing the sensors are out of alignment or something is in the way, even a spider web. Clean the lenses. Adjust if necessary. Expansion due to heat can be enough to bring them out of alignment when adjustment is close.
The door could also believe it is striking an Obstruction. Is anything getting in the way?
Is the door binding? Pull the emergency disconnect and operate the door up and down manually to see if it works easily or if it is binding.
