Adjusting the limit switch and also verifying that the sensors are aligned and no rust is on the rollers will help correct this problem. If your issues still persist contact a professional.
Garage Remote Opener

Remote Control and Keypad Door Opener
If you need to figure out the reason why the door won’t open or close with your keypad or remote here are things to check. One of the first things to check is the range. Get as close to the door as possible and try again. The antenna can be the problem too. It’s a good idea to see if it has been damaged or is in a downward hanging position. If the wall switch works fine with the door the problem could be with the batteries. Also, it’s best to finally reprogram the remote or keypad.
