I predict that you pulled the cord due to power outage. After power is restored you can reset it by having the door in the open position and pressing the wall button to open the door with the opener. It should re-engage by itself if it is properly set up.

    You should be able to push up on the break release the(red handle) and it should reset the manual release.

I lost power last night due to a storm, I have power however my garage door will not open or close. The motor runs, however it is not grabbing. any ideas on how to fix???


Did you have to pull the emergency release and not return this into position. Pull the cord and move it until it clicks into position. Run the door and it should lock into place. If it does not reach this point. run the door to the open position and push the door back until it locks into the release.

Have a Craftsman 1/2 HP Garage Door Opener, been working fine. Now when you start it you hear the motor running as normal but the chain doesnt move?


You must ensure the drive chain is engaged to the door puller.
Sometimes the emergency release if pulled (red cord) the drive and the coupling come separated.
Make sure the pin is back in place (pull release cord and make sure pin springs back in).
The run an open close cycle, it should pick up the drive again.

I pulled the emergency rope on my door opener. How to fix the chain back on the pully?


Pull straight down on the rope and release. Then bring the two halves of the trolley together either by moving the door by hand or running the motor.

I have a Craftsman 1/2 hp garage door opener. Last night I had to open it using the emergency release due to power failure at house. Now it won't catch the door to open it although the chain mechanism...


That lever that the red handle pulls down is made to catch in the unlatched position. You can pull down on it again, and then pull the cord for and aft (parallel to the chain rail) and let it snap back up. Then either run the trolley or move the door and it will click back in.

How to switch back to automatic after manually close the garage d


mikey-moore's advice helped me figure out what to do but it's not exactly what I had to do. Manually open the garage door all the way. Then hit the automatic button you normally would use to open and close your garage door. The bracket slides back and locks into place. Hit the automatic button again and the garage door should automatically close.
