Old Genie Garage Door Opener Won't Close!

The opener is very old and doesn't have a safety sensor. The problem is that it will immediately reverse when the door touches the ground. Otherwise, it works fine. Any help is appreciated!

You probably need to readjust the down limit and downforce adjustments. You should be able to find the manual or procedure at the Genie website. On older models it normally just means moving the lever switch and turning a screw adjustment. You need to follow the steps in order though.
