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.

Sweet!

Definitely do the safety test that Pawnmower was talking about.

If it starts to happen again in the future....then you'll need to call a door technician to come out because your door is to heavy for your opener.

Isn't it supposed to open when you do that test? I don't know as much as you do about the tech support end of it.

Be aware that you will now be able to crush small children (and crush your car) without the door reversing. It's a safety feature. Find out what is making it reverse in the first place.

Yes. The springs should be doing all the work. If you release the door, it should NOT go flying toward the ground at super speed. If it does, your springs are grossly is need of adjusting/replacing.

The door should not even hit the ground if the springs are in working order.

I believe he tested the saftey reverse to make sure it would still reverse....(using a 2x4 on the ground, as per standard)

That's for pussies. I had my boy straddle the beams and closed it on him to test it. Now, he walks in circles.

Shouldn't be. It's your tension springs. They probably need adjusted.
