You can clean or move it around to possibly correct an unworking sensor. After this, check to see if the garage door is off track. An angled door means you could possibly have a snapped cable, which means you will need to find help from a professional due to the nature of this repair. Then check if the springs are broken by looking at the top of the door and examining the state of the springs. Lastly, check if the trolley is disconnected. This can happen either intentionally or accidently by pulling on the red rope. You can connect it by putting it back in position and pressing the button.

Remember to be extra cautious when it comes to DIY garage door repairs and to know when to call a professional.
