Garage doors designed in the last few decades are required to have a safety reverse feature, which means the door should automatically turn to open if it senses that something is in its way while going down. Test your unit’s mechanism by putting a piece of wood on the door’s path, then try to close it using your remote. It should reverse. If it doesn't call a professional to fix it.
