door adjustment

I have an automatic door and have found that it has dropped about a 16th to 8th of an inch. How do I adjust this door to raise it?

Are you sure there isn't an obstruction keeping the counterweight from going all the way down? Otherwise I believe there are turnbuckle style adjustment bolts on either side of the counterweight cables.?.

No counterweights on this one. Cable wraps around pully to raise.

Nice call, I had to go verify first.

Sorry, I just realized this is a washer, not a sterilizer. I've yet to encounter one of these in the wild. Has to be a switch or sensor somewhere to indicate door closed. Could it be an adjustment of that switches position is all that's needed?

Well, we figured it out. The pivot at the bottom of the door had come loose. This door lifts up and then is oulled back against the gasket to seal.  Gettinge Decomat model 8666
