Becky, you might check your microswitch operation..Most old garage door openers have a cutoff switch at both ends of the rail for opening and closing the doors. When the door reaches either full open or close position one of thesw switch is actuated and should shutoff the motor. So locate the switch near the door end of the opener along the door opener rail and command the garage door close and manually cycle the limit switch for the door closed position and see if the motor turns off. If it does then maybe you just need to adjust the location of the switch a little bit back toward the motor end of the opener ...this should cause the door to shutoff sooner before the door reaches the driveway floor.... Hope this helps..
