I bought the autodoor last fall and ended up having the same problem where it would try to close five time then say door blocked. It usually would finally close, but I didn't trust it and I think at least once it was left open. I did all of the recommended actions (clean the unit, clean the blockage sensor, take out the batteries, factory reset) and nothing worked. I returned that unit and they sent me a new one. And within a few months I started having the same problem. The only thing that seems to fix it is if I actually DO block the door with a stick, then it shuts properly the next time. But it has happened at least twice in the past month, where the door says blocked and keeps trying to close unsuccessfully. I have reached out to Omlet and gotten a quick response, but they are recommending to clean it or reset it again. I'm wondering if I have installed it wrong since this is a recurring problem with multiple units. I just don't feel like I can rely on it to keep my chickens safe, which was the whole point of getting it! Any advice is greatly appreciated!
