How to Align Your Safety Eyes if Your Garage Door Won’t Close
The first thing to check when your garage door won’t close is the garage’s photo eyes, also known as safety eyes. Safety eye sensors help prevent cars and pedestrians from getting hit by a garage door—the door automatically stops closing if something is in its way or hindering its operation.
Some possible reasons why your garage door safety eyes might not be functioning properly include:
- Out of alignment
- Off track
- Wiring problems
- Obstructions to the sensors caused by dirt, spider webs, leaves, etc.
- Garage clutter
