Need Garage Door Help

I'm having a problem with my garage door. It's going down and then coming back up before it closes. Sometimes it makes it an inch. Sometimes it makes it a foot. Sometimes it makes it almost all the way down. Sometimes it actually closes all the way. There is really no rhyme nor reason for why it is stopping.

It will close all the way if I hold down the main button inside my garage or the "Enter" button on my keypad. Holding down the button on the remote doesn't work.

I've checked the sensors, and there doesn't seem to be a problem there. I have also greased the tracks. Neither have helped. I'm about to call a professional, but I'm sure he'll turn one screw and charge me $150. I'm more worried about looking like an idiot than I am paying the $150. Also, I'm an idiot.

Most openers do have an adjustment that IS simple.

What brand is your opener ?

Something is tripping your sensors, or they are not properly aligned. I know you said you checked them, but I have had this problem numerous times. Sometimes it is kind of tricky.

Ok, seriously.

-Check that all your screws/bolts/nuts on the door are tightened so as to be sure its not warping/torquing while closing.

- Is there a sensitivity knob? Perhaps yours is set to low?

Ok....I worked tech support for Chamberlain for a year.

Go to the back of the opener. There should be two blue knobs that look like screws. There are numbers around them. Tell me what yours are set at.

Both sensors have a STEADY glowing LED light? (both the sending AND receiving sensor need to have LED illuminated)

i can't help...i usually just call the guy and he comes, fixes it. it's still under warranty, so he's never charged for it. bastard always comes when we're all at work, so we never know what he does to fix it. guess i'll worry about it when he starts charging.

You say you've checked the sensors but which ones? The ones that shoot a beam to each other near the bottom of the door? Or the ones along the track on near the ceiling?
