The can mean that there is something interfering with the door when it touches the floor (maybe ice or a stone etc). If nothing is interfering, then you may adjust one of the usually white screws on the closer so that it does not close with so much pressure on the floor. Check for interference first. Check for binding, by operating manually with the emergency rope pulled to release the door from the opener.

How do i fix it the problem with the sensor on back passenger door it shows up on dash board as door is open


Many door open sensors self-adjust the first time the door is closed. If something gets between the door jamb and the button switch, the switch can get pushed in too far to actually make the connection when the door is closed.
You may be able to pull the switch back into normal position, or at least replace the switch.

I have a Craftman Garage Door Opener Mod#139.53650SRT. It closes completely then goes back up. I replaced the sensors @ the sides of the door to no avail. I have tried to adjust the up and down on the side...


I agree with the closing resistance may be set incorrectly, all openers have a safety feature that senses if something is keeping the door from closing, this is back force, you set the sensitivity at the back of the opener motor control, it is a little dial, reduce the setting just enough to stop the door from kicking back open when it closes, I had this very same problem with my craftsman and this adjustment fixed it.

Linear garage door opens and closes when close to unit about 10 '


when the door stops moving when going down, pull the emergency release handle on the door and then push the door closed by hand. Once it's closed push the emergency handle back so it engages the chain. Open the door and close it a few times to make sure it closes all the way with the motor.

Garage opener try to close door when door at close position


There are upper and lower limit settings, it sounds like you have the lower limit set to low. Adjust it so it stops the door as it contacts the floor and see if this solves the problem. It is possible these limit controls are damaged and will not stay set. If that is the case it may be best to replace the opener if you cannot find a replacement.

The motor runs but it only opens a few inches and slowly goes back down its a chamberlain whisper drive model HD900D


Hi. I have seen this before, although usually not from chamberlain garage door openers.

Pull the release cord that unlocks the door from the opener, and manually open the door ALL the way open.

Then lock back in place in the open position.

Then use automatic opener to shut door.

It will close very slowly, but should close all the way.

Then, open the door again using the remote, and the door will once again open slowly, this time it should open all the way.

Then close door with remote, and door should now close as it is supposed, with the proper speed.

The slow opening and shutting is the system position sensor resetting itself.

This is why your door is acting up.

I would also look up by the belt drive connects to the front of the garage door opening, to make sure there isn't any dirt, cobwebs, or other obstructions on the sensor that may cause it to re-close the way it does.

I'm not sure about the noise, but the jerking motion might be because your the center roller (located in the rear middle of the sliding door) has worn out and need to be replace. This is a will known problem.

rear latch:
-door not to latch close

-door will only open half way

center roller:
-jerking motion when opening
-door kick back close while opening
-door kick back open while closing

Door motor:
-door not to work
-cause door to jam

good luck

My screen door got latched somehow in a position so that it is held open. How do I unlatch it so it will close?


Hi,
On the door there is a round cylinder type closer that keeps your door from slamming closed and lets it gently close. Now, on the rod of that cylinder that is stretched out is a small clip that will go back against the cylinder to hold the door open. Push the door slightly more open and then move the clip to relaese it and more it back the rod, so the door is able to close....

Brother (photocopier, fax and scanner machine) says << back cover open. close back cover>> but the back cover (or at least what i think is the back cover) is closed. I even opened and closed it...


I have fixed this problem on my 7820n printer by brother.

open the back door, then inside there will be a black colored other kind of like door that pulls back away from the roller. on this inner door is a black long thin plastic lever that runs from about the center of the inner door to the right. on the right end of it is a lever that slides along a curved increase on the right side wall. when both doors are closed this right end of the rod or lever moves up to close the gap between what is the sensor. this long thin plastic rod had snapped out of place and when i snapped it back in making sure the spring was correctly installed on the left end of it and the middle part of the rod slid correctly in its groove...the right end of the lever correctly closed the gap on the sensor (when both doors are closed) and the back door open error went away.

So that's how you really fix it!!!!

Freezer door pops open.


normal operation actually, gaskets are designed to seal door closed not to hold them closed, first off check the items on the shelves make sure nothing stick to far out preventing good closing.next the refrig should be tilted slightly back. to aid in the doors swinging closed( the should close automatically form 45 degrees.)ok for them to "pop" open so long as they close back shut. this works on top freezers and bottomr freezer refigs, sidex sides use a differnet system of closing, if htats the case look into replacing door closures(cams) located under hte door assy
