Router ports won't open


So, i've been hosting games for a while but i don't know what happened, after i try to port forward router ports they just won't open :O. Yeh, as i go to
Open Port Check Tool it says ''Error: I could not see your service on 62.**.***.*** on port (*****)
Reason: Connection timed out''

So.... How can i open my ports?? Do i have to call my router provider or something??

It really depends on your specific router model to setup port forwarding, it's hard to tell really. But a few things you could do in advance are checking that your computer as a fixed LAN IP address, and forward the port to that IP and make sure a program is actually listening to that port when you run the check online.
Another way to check it would be to connect two computers to the router, one to a LAN port and another to the WAN port, and check whether or not they can see each other.
