My Craftsman garage door will not close, only a few inches at a time


have a problem which returns every year when outdoor temperatures drop close to freezing. garage door will open only a few inches, then stops. I can close it and try opening it again... same result. After five or six such attempts it typically will open. Interestingly, when I push the switch button mounted on the interior wall of my garage and keep it pushed, the door will open, until I release the button at which point it stops opening.

I just installed a Craftsman 139.53985DM and the door goes down about 3 feet and stops. When I push the remote again it opens all the way. Any suggestions?


On the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go you will find the 'down force' adjustment. Increase this about 1/4 turn and try.

As I close my garage door, I like to leave it open about a foot. I used to be able to stop it with my remote, but now I have to push the remote repeatedly to get it to stop. I have checked the batteries...


Newer openers have always been designed to reverse to the open position when a button is pressed during closing. This is a safety feature. To do what you want you must press the button while the door is opening. That will stop it where you want.

Wanye dalton door opener modal 3018. goes up 1 foot and stops


Check your door springs. Usually just over the door and can be seen when the door is closed. A broken spring is the most common cause of this problem.

Door goes up about a foot and stops


The sensors have nothing to do with your door opening. First thing to check are the door springs. One may be broken. Next remove the cover and check the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor. It may be stripped.

My garage door bucks like a bronco


You have a door problem. The reason the door is reversing to the open position is because when it bucks the safety senses something wrong. Release the door from the opener and operate it by hand. You should find something.

6 month old garage door will work.


On the back of the opener near where all those white wires go you will find 2 controls. One is labeled "up force." Increase this about 1/4 turn.
