Problem with garage opener

Hi, the only way to close my garage door is to hold the button till its fully closed. I have adjusted it for full closing force and still the same, also the bar seems to bend alot when opening or closing. Its a Stanely D2000.
Any help?

Rick,
My garage door opener has been showing similar symptoms for the last two days and I came across this thread. What I found was is that the electronic eye receiver connector wasn't secure, and it had a loose connection. I removed the connector, cleaned the surrounding area a little bit and plugged it back in. Now the door opener is functioning normally.
My guess is that when I took out the recycling out two days ago, I probably hit the eye in such a way as to knock the connection loose.
Thanks for tthe suggestion Joseph M.

Disconnect the door from the electric opener and operate the door manually. Check the pulleys, cables, springs, rollers, shoot just check everything...

Thanks for the replies I have disconnect the door and it runs freely up and down, could the sensor appear to be working ok but not sending a signal??? Could I try putting a jumper on instead of the sensor to check it? Thanks Again for your help

While the door is disconnected, run the operator. Check to see if the operator's sprocket shaft bearings aren't defective or that the trolley isn't binding. Maybe it's time to consider buying a new unit. Rich

Rick-
In a way your are testing the sensors. Having to hold the button to close means the door system thinks there is an obstruction in the door path.
Either the sensosrs are mis-aligned, bad (not sending signal to GDO) or GDO is not processing the sensor info corrrectly.
Try your sensors on another door setup? Buy replacement sensors? Double check all sensor wiring & connections
Cheers Bob
