Garage Door Problem

Hi, this does not always happen, but sometimes when I close my garage door either using the remote or the keypad, half-way when it is closing it will re-open again without my touching anything. Do anyone know what is the problem and how to fix it? FYI, it is a Craftman one. Thanks!!

First thing to check is the alignment of the two eyes at either side of the door track near the floor. Make sure they are pointed at each other well.

If the door seems excessively noisy when opening and closing, you might lubricate the tracks some to reduce friction.

Finally, I believe there are some settings that determine the force used to close the door that can be adjusted. You might need to increase it.

Thanks! after your advice, I looked in the garage and found that it was really due to the sensor. The skirt at the end of the garage door was loosen and it sometimes blocks the light from the senor. I fixed the skirt and it is okay now. Thanks!!!
