Garage door closes all the way. stops, and then opens back up

i checked that the sensors were aligned and that there were on leaves or anything stuck to the bottom of the door so I dont think the sensors are being tripped as the door goes all the way to the bottom and then starts back up.
We have a Powerlift XLII that is about 20 years old.
Thanks for any suggestions.

The "down" end stop needs to be reset. Without a model number I can't be of much more help as I'm not sure what that unit is.
