SOURCE: When cold outside, door only opens a few inches

1.Check to see if the door is running correctly. 
  A. Run the door down and pull the emergency release. See if the door will run easily by itself. 

  1. If it runs hard by hand try lubricating the rollers and hinges with silicone spray or some form of lubricant (not WD 40) 

  2. If the door is heavy and falls back to the ground, you probably have a spring issue (either broken or needs more tension) in this case call a professional door repair company in your area.

  B. If the door runs fine then check the up force on your operator (the box that hangs from the ceiling and reads Craftsman). If the light(s) on your operator go from front and/or back, the force adjustment screw is on the back of the operator. If the lights are on the sides of the operator then the force adjustment screw is on the right side (looking from the back of the operator and facing the garage door). Turn the light blue adjustment screw with the up arrow to a higher number.

SOURCE: cold weather. Opener lifts door ~8

If there is any grease in the tracks clean it all out. On the rear of your motor unit you will find the 'up force' control. Turn this about 1/4 turn and try. You also should take a good look at your door springs and make sure one isn't broken. Release the door from the opener and open it manually. Shouldn't be heavy and should stay when released about 1/2 way up.

You can turn up the up and down force on the motor head to give the unit more power. During colder weather the unit needs more power. Afterward do a 2x4 safety reversal test. thanks, BB

Cold weather affects it because the resistance in the doorlock-motor windings increases to the point not enough voltage gets through to be able to open the latch! Replacing the doorlock is the only sure fix in this case as they're not serviceable!

They are stuck and need to be lubed. Use WD 40 and spray the latch on the door. Then close the door and open it a few times to work the spray in. Then spray it again it should work just fine.

In cold weather, the headlights are slow to come on, and in really cold weather, they can take up to a minute to come on.


could be a relay try that first but sometimes its the switch where the contacts in the switch are slow in touching because the operating mechanism is dirty causing it to take a long time ,try swopping a relay over first as they are all the same relays ,

Auto headlight feaature not working


Before you go into any extensive electric workup, you should first check the trigger on the door to see if it is defective. It happens often in ice cold weather on old vehicles. It is a little black mushroom held by spring on the frame where the door has contact with. Wiggle it a few times to see if it turns the lights off.
