Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+
Forgot door was manually locked and tried to open; now, the door opens ok but can only be closed from wall switch and then only when switch is held down, riding door all the way down (remote will open but not close door). Releasing the switch before fully closed causes door movement to stop and reverse direction.
sounds like the safety door sensors are at fault,also did you reprogram the remotes by pressing the smart button on the logic board,when the safety sensors are bad the door will reverse to open state.you can pully the rip cord to manualy close the door untill you solve the problem.

The motors is cought on something check the motor if it moves inches it will move a yard the question is the motor is it getting power? if so is it stuck on its own drive chain? Check these things you be glad you did.

Sounds like you have a couple problems. First of all press and hold the button on the wall control that has a lock icon for 3 seconds and release. This should take care of the flashing LED and the remotes will now work. Having to hold the button on the wall control until the door is closed is usually a problem with the door sensors. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each is lit and not flickering.

If the main light is flashing 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem. One may have been bumped so that they no longer point at one another. Make sure the small light on each sensor is lit and not flickering. If this isn't the case you might need to increase the down force a little. The control is on the back panel near where all those white wires go. Increase it about 1/4 turn and try.

Use the pull cord and disconnect the opener from the door.
Operate the opener and let the carrier slide back away from the door.
Is the carrier moving smoothly when disconnected?
Next, lift the door by hand from the bottom to the top. Is it moving smoothly?
If not, lubricate the axles of all the rollers on both sides of the door.
Check the cable pulleys at the top sides of the door channel, lubricate them as
well. Are all cables in all the pulleys, there are 4.
After checking those things, there is a "up force" and "down force"
adjustment on the opener, try increasing the "up force" by turning the
adjustment in the direction of MORE force.
Give me some thumbs up if this helps you.
