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 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.

I have an access master door opener..it goes up about 6 inches and stops, hit switch again, goes down, hit switch again goes up about two feet, hit switch again goes down, third time switch nothing until...


Door sensors have nothing to do with door opening. Only closing. It sounds like you have a bad gear in the motor unit. Remove the cover and it will be obvious if the gear is bad.

Garage door repeatedly drops after opening.


Remove the cover from the motor unit and check the drive gear.

Goes up about 6" then stops. Push button and it goes back down. Once in a while it may go 1/2 way up then stop.


You need to check the door springs and also remove the cover and check the drive gear. The gear is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. It may be stripped. On the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go you will find the 'up force' control. Increase this about 1/4 turn and try. If you have a bad spring or drive gear this adjustment may help temporarily.

My kenmore he2 plus washer door gasket is loose.


it goes on the groove in the gasket at the door , the side view of the gasket would be a V, it goes right in the middle. make sure the gasket is first snug on the metal frame groove. the spring is very tight, start at top then work down, use a flat screwdriver to pry it in at bottom. it may help to wet the gasket

Sears opener wont open or close more than 12 inches


You may have put the chain back on out of "sync" with in internal up and down stops. You may have to take the chain off the motor sprocket and run the motor to make sure it is stopped in the down position ( watch the rotation of the sprocket to determine up or down position) When the motor is stopped in the down position put the chain back on with the chain Carriage in the down position. Then you can fine tune the up and down stop positions with the adjustment screws on the side.

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.

Door ups and downs


Holding the button down just bypasses the sensors.
Your sensors are not adjusting correctly, or there is a short in the wires.
The back of the machine has a little yellow light, count the flashes and corelate it to the troubleshooting portion of the manual to confirm.

The orange light is a constant, the green sensor needs to be adjusted until you get a solid green light.
