Garage door goes up but not down

I have a Genie garage door opener. The door will go up fine, but when it starts to go down it reverses itself and goes back up. There is no obstruction to the electric eyes that I can see. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

Have you uncoupled the door and operated it manually?

Does the read LED on the sending beam burn continously?

As it stops, does the motor load up or does it simply stop? When an opener stops quietly for no apparent reason, it is usually a "control" stop, meaning the door is stopped by either the limit switches or the safety features.

Sounds like the close force adjustment needs to be turned clockwise a little bit.Remove the white lens cover and look for 2 black skinny knobs, labeled "open" and other "close".
