Check your safety sensors

The safety eyes (commonly referred to as safety sensors) are obstructed. The garage door opener safety eyes are small usually black in color rectangular boxes that attach to both the left and right track. Pursuant to code, these safety eyes should be installed approximately 6 inches from the floor so look towards the bottom of the track. These safety eyes create an invisible beam that must be continuous in order for the door to function correctly. When the beam is broken or blocked the door will not close using the garage door opener.

Heavy garage door means more than you think

  1. The weight of the door can change from season to season. Especially when moisture freezes to the surface of your door like it commonly does in the beautiful Colorado winters. This will change the weight of the door and can throw off the force limits of the garage door opener.
  2. Failing garage door spring. If the door is heavy, this could be a sign of a failing garage door spring. The springs will naturally lose tension over time and will require adjustment or replacement
