How to reset your electric garage door opener

If your garage door closes briefly and then automatically opens, or if it stops closing before it meets the ground, your electric garage door opener needs to be reset. Although every garage door opener functions a little differently, for many garage door openers the following instructions will be applicable: Shut off the power at the breaker, or unplug the garage door opener. Wait 10 seconds, and turn the power back on. Press the down arrow button, and keep pressing it until the door has closed completely. Then hit the “set” button. Next, hit the up arrow button and hold it until the door is about six inches from the garage door opener. Hit the “set” button.
