How do I align garage door sensors?

If your garage door is out of alignment, you will need to realign the garage door sensors.

  • There are two sensors. One on each side of the garage door and located near the floor. These are primarily used for safety, but if they are out of alignment, they will stop your garage door.
  • To realign, simply look at the two garage door sensors. One or both of them will be facing up or down and they will display different light colors. Adjust the two garage door sensors so that the lights are the same color.

How do I reset an electrical outlet?

The electrical outlet will usually display a red light if it needs to be reset. To reset, simply press the button that says “Reset”.
