Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+
If the door runs fine then check the up force and down force on your operator (the box that hangs from the ceiling). 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/down arrow to a higher number.

I have Craftsman 1/2 hp Door Opener(2005) screw drive. When opening the door pully connected to the screw drive gets to about 18 inches from operator and stops leaving the door only 3/4 open. I have adjusted both the up and down screws on the operator to no avail. Interesting though, about 1 in 10 attempted openings, the door opens all the way.

If you have no way to enter the garage but through the large door you will need to call a technician. They will drill a hole through the door and then use a tool to reach the manual release. They can also install a keyed manual release so you don't have this problem again.

HOLDING DOWN THE WALL BUTTON OVERRIDES THE SAFETY EYES.
WHEN HOLDING IT DOWN MAKES THE DOOR CLOSE PROPERLY THE PROBLEM IS IN THE SAFETY EYES.
ARE BOTH LEDS ON? - CHECK FOR A LOOSE OR BROKEN WIRE.
ARE THE EYES WIRED CORRECTLY?
ARE THEY AIMED AT EACH OTHER?
