Garage Door Won't Close

by H. Brown

My Sears Craftsman garage door all of a sudden will not continue down to the closed position. It returns to the open position and the light blinks indicating some sort of problem.

There are no obstructions in the way of the sensors nor does it strike anything to cause it to reverse. It moves up and down by hand with no problem. Any ideas???

garage sensors not on
by: Joe

My garage door opened but now will not close upon further investigation I found the sensors not working. I cleaned and reinstalled but the light wont go on.

If the indicator light does not come on, either there is a problem with a broken wire or the sensors need replaced.

Sounds like the safety sensors are out of alignment.

The indicator light on one will be blinking rapidly. You may have to get down to eye level to tell that they are actually blinking.
