Can you open and close it manually?


How about pneumatically?

I can open it but when I try to push it closed it stops with about 4 inches to go. Itches to be jammed on something

Did you flip the switch to manual? I forget to do that a lot.

Interestingly enough....it ended up that the stair runner had shifted and stopped the door from closing. Go figure

Excellent ... mischief managed!


I have a set of steps I set outside out bus and in some locaions (like our sriveway) the top step *sometimes* hangs up the bottom of the door. The first time it did that I thought "Well darn, one more thing to fix!"
