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.

Something is making the reverse mechanism engage. There's an adjustment knob on the motor housing that allows you to dial the amount of load that it will trip the reverse. You can adjust it so that it is less sensitive.

However, something is probably not right in the operation of the door. Have you disconnected the door from the opener and checked to see if its binding up somewhere?

You can check this as well. There should be an orange and a green light.

Tech support was easy as ****. 95% of the calls were simple reprogramming of remotes.

Pretty much. You'd get the occasional call where they ran it before they installed it.....but other than that.....easy shit.

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 6

One solid orange and one solid green. If I put my hand in between, they go off.
