    Electric Garage Door


    My old Everest Garage Door 2004 will not close when I press the switch & the fob. It goes to the top of the frame & no further with the light flashing. It still has power. What could be stopping the electric garage door from closing?

    "Sounds like the limits are out. On the motor there's a top and bottom limit switch thats adjusted to suit every roller door so that it stops in the correct position."

    "Automatic door always controls by limit switch or photo sensor for safety reasons. Check all sensor senses correctly"
