With motors one of the typical problems lie with power difficulties. The motor is what supplies power to the garage door. When something occurs to halt the power then neither the motor nor the sensors of the garage will work and the garage door won't operate. The power cord itself can be faulty or there could be some malfunction to the grid. If there is a problem with loose wiring it could be that they motor will function on and off. It might turn out that there is travel limit to the garage door. If it turns out that the travel limit on the motor chain gets set too low, the garage door can continue to go down and the motor might register that it hit an obstacle and will retract. On the other hand if the motor chain is set too high, the garage door will either stay open or the motor can register that it hasn't shut and retract again.
Garage door motors must be placed in the direct centre. If the motor gets placed to the side the will tilt whenever someone tries to open it.

So first of all if your garage door seems to be having problems it is up to you to first of all check what could be the matter. In the case that the motor itself is damaged then you'll have to seek out a professional in the local area to repair it. However if it happens to be a problem with the wiring then you could try to repair it yourself.
