Garage door opener not working? The problem depends on the symptoms. It could be as simple as your transmitter batteries need replaced. If the garage door doesn’t close, your photo eye could possibly be out of alignment. This is an invisible beam at the bottom of the door that prevents the door from closing if something is in the way. If the eyes are out of adjustment, the sensor may not connect and prevent he door from closing. It’s a fairly easy job to fix.
If your track is out of alignment where you seem gaps between the rollers and rail and bends between the rail, you might be able to do the job yourself, depending on how out of alignment it is. If the gap is too big, you may want to call in a professional.
