Without knowing the model, it's hard to show you or explain it accurately. Take your model number to Sears.com or another appliance parts website and you can see the breakdown for your unit. you are going to be looking for a hinge most likely, but sometimes the hinges and the door balance/resistor mechanism are separate items.

I have a craftsman 3/4 hp 315 mhz garage door opener model 13953990ds when ativating it to open it only moves 6 to 8" forward and back and stop. i have tried all steps in the manual can get it solved


If you've readjusted the opener, and it still isn't working, you need to have a trained door technician come out and adjust the tension on your springs. To determine this, pull the red release handle to disengage the opener from the door, and try to lift your door by hand. You should be able to move the door easily, and it should stay at the half open point without falling or rising. If the door is hard to move, excessively heavy to lift off the ground, or will not stay open, the door itself is the culprit. If the door is fine, the opener will need to be serviced.

Broken sprocket coupler


Could be. Yet you may only need to adjust the springs and not replace them.. In case you have roll up/ sectional garage door, it should be quite easy you need to release the traveler from the rail so you can open and close the door manually/by hand then, while open the door on the knee level leave the door. If it falls down the springs need adjustment.
In general the door should stay at the same position on every stage it is while pulling it up and down.
If the door falls/ closes down not enough tension on springs, if door opens up too much tension on springs. If door acts funny.like close when close to the floor and jump up when its futher more open, it means that you don't have the matching springs for the weight of your garage.

My trunk door opens automatically but wont stay up it falls quickly and hard to about mid point then jerks a few times and starts to fall again.


The hydraulic props on both sides of the trunk door need to be replaced. They do wear out over time. They are covered under the 3 year 36,000 miles warranty.

My door will not shut


Is the latch and strike still intact ? If it is, you should hear or feel a distinct "click" when closing the door. if that is ok but the door simply won't stay latched, I'd suspect a bent door or hinge assembly. if it isn't ok, you can get a latch and strike in a kit #279570, the most common kit for kenmore/whirlpool dryers over the past 30-35yrs. or so. It will also work in most other makes too. your unit may also have a "spare" latch built into it for door reversal, but not the "strike". you may be able to straighten the door or hinge by removing the door and examining what's bent and correct it. either way, you need to first identify what is bent/or out of alignment.

hope that helps

good luck.

Aj-d200 video camera, cassette door stuck partially open. best diagnosis and/or remedy?


Partially open sounds like a mechanical problem with the cassette housing/door assembly. The door usually stays fully open or will not open at all, caused by component failure on the mechanical driver board. Check to make sure nothing is stuck in the mechanism, like a label or a broken piece from a cassette. If the door will move, but will not latch closed, the problem is most likely on th emechanical driver board.

Freezer door wont seal and stay closed


Your pushing air from the fridge part over to the freezer door when you clos it,the only thing i can suggest is make sure that the seal (which is magnetic) is clean and not falling apart,inspect it all around the door,and when closing the door i would close it gently.

Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or

Whirlpool gold door falls open during cycle


You can probably get away with getting just hinges for the door if it is not bent also check the latch if it doesn't look broken the just go for the hinges.

Can rear side window be adjusted


I believe it is only able to open partially as a safety feature, to keep children from falling out of the window. No adjustment possible. I don't seem to remember large numbers of children spilling out of windows before this partial window opening thing took effect, though.
