The test for the safety sensors involves blocking them with a solid object while the garage door is fully opened. Instead of closing with the remote control, the unit should stay in place in this situation. This indicates that the sensors and the reversal mechanism work properly. In addition to the photo eyes, we test the opener’s force. If the door hits the object, which is set on its path without blocking the sensors, then we’ll reduce the force.
