Door goes down and when it stops at botton, it turns and goes back up ??? Need adjusting ..How can I adjust???


Adjust the position of the door by using the black and purple buttons. Black moves the door UP (open) and purple moves the door DOWN (close)
Setting the up position: 1. Press and hold the black button until the LED starts flashing slowly, then release. 2. Push and hold the black button until the door reaches the desired UP (open) position 3. Push the door control or programmed remote control. This sets the Up (open) position and begins closing the door. 4. Immediately when the door begins to close press and release the black or purple button. This will stop the door Setting the Down position: 5. Push and hold the purple button until the door reaches the desired DOWN (Closed) position. 6. Once the door is closed, If there appears to be too much pressure on the door, you may toggle the door back and forth using the black and purple buttons to reach the desired closed position. 7. Push the door control or programmed remote control. This sets the Down (closed) limit and the door should open.

My garage door goes up about 6 inches and stops. Just as it stops the lights on the opener go out for a split second and come back on. I released the emergency cable and it does the same the same thing. ...


I would check for a loose connection on the rear of the motor unit and also remove the cover from the motor unit and check the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor.

Cold weather came in and now the garage door closes about 6 inches then goes back up. I have sprayed penetrant on all moving parts and the door closes fine manually. It is minus 30 degrees celcius outside...


Try increasing the 'down force'. You will find the control on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Increase it about 1/4 turn and try.

Chamberlain Liftmaster bounces back up sometimes...


On the side of the motor unit you will find the 'down limit control'. Using a small screwdriver turn this control in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Some tweaking will most likely be necessary. You can remove the cover and watch the limit switch assembly and get a good idea how it works.

In the manual it says if you can hold the wall button down & door closes. You have a short in the wiring to the reciever eye. Try substituting some new bell wire in its place, or test the wires for continuity.
