    Ajust the door so that it does not hit the floor so hard? Their is a limnit switch of some sort to stop it for going past a certain point. I am unsure which type it uses but if it goes past that point ,  it goes back up.

Try adjusting the close shut off switch.(limiting switch) It sounds like when the door shuts, it has too much pressure. The sensor picks this up and reverses the door.This is a saftey feature. It just needs adjusting

I put a new gear and sproket on my sears lift master. It works, however when i press the garage door opener it goes one way for a few feet

replacing the sprocket requires the drive chain be tight and the door must be re-aligned with the timing of the lift/lower sensor. check your manual. should be done with door down. 10_19_2013_9_44_59_am.jpg

My interrupter cup keeps flying off on my craftsman garage door opner model 139.53648srt1

This sometimes happens after changing a drive gear. If this is the case follow the instructions below.

You probably did not have the motor shaft pushed all the way back when you tightened the coupler after replacing the worm gear. Loosen that coupler up and from the front of the motor (opposite end in which the coupler is on) push the shaft back as far as it will go. Hold it there while you tighten the coupler back up and then try it.

If you didn't just change the drive gear you will find the motor shaft is moving towards the rear and knocking the interrupter cup off. Replacing the drive gear with the new coupler and washers will cure this problem.

Hi my home have a lift master garage opner this mornig when i try to open but door open only 1 feet not full i try soooo many time but same i chek sensor but same thige

You need to take a look at the door springs to see if one of them is broken. Also remove the cover from the motor unit and check the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear and is just in front of the motor. It may be stripped. It will be obvious if it is.

Lift-Master GDO goes up, not down

If the door operates freely without any binding, while operating it manually then It would appear that the obstruction sensor mounted across the doors path is ether out of alignment, lens dirty,or malfunctioning

Chewing up Chain Drive

There is most likely a problem with the balance of the door. Release the door from the opener by pulling the red handle and lift the door manually. You should not have to apply more than 20lbs to lift it. When the door is at each hinge point and all the way up, it should stay by itsself. If it does not, the springs need to be adjusted or you will continue to replace gears.
