When the garage door keeps going back up when you try to close it, it's a problem. Like a computer, your garage door has a logic board. The logic board is the brain of your garage door opener and can wear out over time.
You should check the wall panel near the entrance of your home to make sure that it has been corrected. The open and closed limit settings are found on most garage doors. When your garage door is completely open and when it is completely closed, these settings tell you how far up the track you can go. The garage door stops if it reaches the open or closed limit. You may have to adjust your closed limit settings if your garage door keeps opening by itself. The opener will mistake the ground for obstruction if the settings are too high.
The garage door can be slowed down by a slight misalignment on the track. If any of the tracks are bent, you would hear a noise as the garage door moves. The track or roller can be broken if the garage door doesn't open or close. If that's the case, you may need to replace your garage door system. If the wall switch doesn't work but the remote control does, the switch may be faulty or need new wiring. Misadjusted sensitivity on the garage door can be created by bad setting inputs.
The door will reverse itself if it's programmed not to close on foreign objects. If your door behaves this way, you should have a maintenance specialist inspect the limit settings on your garage door opener and make adjustments if necessary. If your opener is more than five years old, it will most likely have a preset amount of force needed to pull the garage door up. Damage to the rollers or door tracks can make it difficult for the opener to lift the door. A nut on the opener can be turned with a wrench to increase the opener's pulling power. If the garage door closes, turn the down limit switch screw clockwise and then use the flat blade screwdriver to open it.
There are universal garage door remote controllers that can be used. When the opener makes a noise when prompted but won't open, it's a common mistake. A new opener is the only way around a stripped gear. The door can only be used manually in the meantime. The replacement of your opener should only be done by a garage door service professional. If your house mate hits the remote button while you're working, you won't lose a finger.
If the garage door remote doesn't work, you can replace the batteries and it will work again. An electrical surge can cause the breaker to trip. If the breaker that powers your garage is no longer in the "On" position, you should check your home's breaker panel.
