This indicates that either the draw bar arm is at a wrong angle or that you need to turn up the down force. The draw bar arm should be at a 30 degree angle or so to the door. To change the angle you can move the location of the 1/2" nuts that connect the curve and strait piece. If that is ok then you can turn up the down force on the motor unit. Never adjust it all the way up though. %/8 turn on the up and down force should be ok. Afterward do a 2x4 safety reversal test as outlined in the manual. Thanks BB
