Incorrectly Set Garage Door Limit

Garage doors have changed throughout the years. They now all come equipped with sensors as a safety precaution. Sometimes your garage door closes all the way then immediately goes back up instead of staying closed. Typically this happens on newly installed doors as the garage door limit isn’t set properly although it can also happen because your door isn’t set properly therefore confusing the sensors. Resetting your garage door limit can be an easy fix, however it is difficult for someone who doesn’t have the expertise to do it.

The culprit of why your Sioux Falls garage door is not closing all the way is usually the open and close limit settings on your garage door opener not being set correctly. The garage door limit range tells the garage door opener how far the door should move before it is fully closed. If your door settings are set too high, the door will hit the ground before the opener thinks it should causing it to open back up as the door thinks there is something in its path. Your door will automatically reverse to prevent crushing whatever object is beneath it therefore bringing upon frustration when you know nothing is in the path of your door.
