CHECK THE SPRING(S) ABOVE THE DOOR.
98% OF THE TIME WHEN THEY ONLY GO UP 6" YOU WILL FIND A BROKEN SPRING - LOOK FOR A GAP IN ONE OF THE SPRINGS.

I DON'T RECOMMEND DIY REPLACEMENT CALL IN A PRO FOR THIS FIX.

YOU WILL NEED ALL YOUR FINGERS ETC. FOR FUTURE DIY PROJECTS.

HOPE THIS HELPS

The craftsman garage door opener only opens door 6 inches to about 30 inches and won't go any higher model 139 .53930D


Check your door springs. One may be broken. Also check the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor.

Craftsman 1/2 HP garage opener opens only 6 inches


Remove the cover and check the drive gear. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. It may be stripped. Take a close look at those door springs. They can sometime appear to be okay when one is broken.

I have a gargae door that goes down only not up. Plus when it goes down it stops at the bottom and retrives 6 inches back up.


Check to make sure that the garage door is balanced. Sounds like the springs need to be adjusted and the travel limits need to be reset.

Door opens only 6 inches and stuck


I would try jumping a wire across the white & red terminal to see if your safety sensors are working Properly! If your door opens you have a loose connection or faulty sensors.
