Does your garage door close all the way to the ground, then reverse back to the open position once it comes in contact with the concrete? If so, you’re not alone. Unfortunately, this is a more common problem than many homeowners realize. The good thing, however, is that the problem may be easy to resolve! The problem usually lies within the garage door’s close limit settings within the opener. Basically, the opener tells the motor how far the garage door must go to hit the ground before it is fully closed. If the settings are out of whack and too high, the garage door will think that it has hit the ground or something in its path, causing it to seemingly have a mind of it’s own and open back up. This is a safety setting in order to save someone or something from being crushed by the garage door. To fix the problem, grab your garage door operator’s manual to learn how to reset the open and close limits correctly.
