Garage door not working


I have been facing this problem for a while, that my garage door gets stuck nid way, and than when I again press it to go down and press back up, it works or soemtime si had to do this few times before I can get the door open completely. This problem was mostly afced in winter seasons. Hwoever, sicne last night (30 Nov 2008), the door opener box is not working at all. When I press the button on teh door opener, it makes a sound as if something si trying to rotatae int eh box but is not pulling the door up.

What can be done to fix it, or can it be fixed? Do I eed to replace the opener box with a new one. The box is from Craftsman 1/2 HR.

Please help.

Increase the opening force by 1/4 turn and decrease the closing force by 1/4 turn on the control box, where the drive shaft for the door is attached, and where the motor is. increase the or decrease the adjustment till the door can be open with minimum of torque.

The rollers for the door could be bad or just gummed up. Also check to make sure the garage door springs are in good condition and not broken. And adjust your door open force on the opener.

I Have a Liftmaster Professional Formula 1 garage door opener. When we press button on wall or garage door opener, we hear the motor going but the garage door doesn't do anything. Do I need a new opener?

There is a rope or string hanging down that releases the dog that hooks the door to the chain...if someone pulled that the door will not open. You need to pull down and back on the srting to relaese the dog and then push the door up to catch the chain...then the door will work again...

Garage door motor reset button must be pressed to work again

It sounds like you have a bad wall control. You can check this out by replacing it with an inexpensive door bell button.

Garage door pad

You need to press and release the learn botton (don't hold it or you will clear all the codes)
If the light bulb(s) on your operator are on the front and/or back, the learn botton is on the back of the operator. If the lights are on the sides of the operator then the learn botton is on the right side (looking from the back of the operator and facing the garage door). 
After you press the learn button you have about 30 seconds to press in the new 4 digit code in your key pad then hold the enter button until the light on the operator blinks (about 2 seconds). If this does not work check the battery and try it again.

Garage door only opens a foot from ground
