Someone may be cruising your neighborhood with an identical opener making note of doors that can be opened with a future visit in mind.

Are the sensors lined up? They will get voltage without being aligned. Batteries good? Try opening the door by the button on wall or touch the contacts on back of motor with something conductive to act like the remote and see if it opens. This will tell you either remote or sensor issue or the opener itself

That means that the Monitor unit has to be re-sync'd to the remote sensor. First, check that the remote sensor (mounted on the garage door) has a good battery. If so, then the monitor unit just needs to be paired. There is a small button on the inside Monitor unit (hole near where the power cord goes in). Press the small button with a toothpick or something similar and the unit will enter programming mode. Now open and close the door that the sensor is mounted on and it will then pair the two.

Turn ( unplug it from the wall) if hard wired remove the fuse from switch board.
Then turn back on. Pull the cord once or flick the switch.
It may just open or close as soon as you turn the power back on so watch out!.
If nothing.. switch it again and it should be good.

If sunlight is on the control at the floor level it won't close. Shade the control and it will close. May not be your problem though.

Wooden windows are a far superior product as the insulating factor is much higher than PVC and is more environmentally friendly, the only down falls are cost and upkeep. Make sure you check on manufacturers as you want good quality ones.

No, the door will normally fully clear the door opening and sit in the track under the ceiling.

• This could be a problem with the amount of torque needed to close the garage door. Some garage door openers sense the amount of torque and will stop or reverse if an object gets in the path of the door. There may be some sort of adjustment for the closing force that you will need to adjust towards a stronger setting.
• There could be a problem with a light sensor that detects if an object is in the way. Insects, spider webs, or other objects may be interfering with the light beam. The sensor and source light may need adjustment.

The door is making a hard stop before the motor cuts off, causing the slack. Minor adjustment should cure the problem.
