    Can you provide more details? It sounds like the plastic lastch that attaches the two may be damaged.

IF YOU ARE REFERING TO THE TROLLEY THAT RUNS ON THE OPENER RAIL. IT MAY JUST NEED THE RELEASE RESET. PULL THE ROPE BACK TOWARD THE POWER UNIT AND IT SHOULD CLICK - SOME UNITS NEED TO BE PULLED STRAIGHT DOWN.
IF IT IS A SCREW DRIVE OPENER THE TROLLEY COULD BE STRIPPED.



IF YOU HAVE A SCREW DRIVE IT COULD BE THE DRIVE

My garage door lurches while it is opening


If the alignment is true and rollers move with ease, you should not have any jerking motion. Unlock the door catch from the pulley line of the motor. The door should be FREE to lift by hand. With the door Free of the motor/line-pulley, lift by hand. Do so a number of times and see if it binds or is free to move up and down easily. If it binds, the alignment is off and needs adjustment. If it moves quite well, then the problem can be the door sensors. These are the two face to face sensing devices at the bottom of the metal guides on both sides. These sensors need to be horizontal and fixed to allow Line Of Site to operate correctly. Check both Alignments, Rails and Sensors.

I installed the belt of the lift master garage door opener, but it looks like it has a lock and it does not open and close correctly. How can I re-set it?


The position of the belt and the limit assembly must be synchronized to operate properly. You need to loosen the belt enough to lift it from the pulley on top of the motor and then run the motor until it runs in the clockwise direction and stops. Now with the belt connected to the door and the door closed put the belt back on the pulley and tighten. Should do it.

The slider on my door is jammed against the unit and i cant free it craftsmanis the make


Loosen the chain until the stress on the trolley is relieved. Now run the opener until the door closes. While the door is closed locate the 'up limit' control on the side of the motor unit. Turn this control 2 full turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Tighten the chain.

It sounds like the sun may be shining on and causing problems with the door sensors. Try using the cardboard tube from a roll of toilet tissue on the receiving sensor.

Loosen the chain enough that you can remove it from the pulley on top of the motor unit. Now with the door closed run the motor until the pulley turns in the clockwise direction and stops. Put the chain back on the pulley and tighten. You may have to tweak the up and down limits now.
