Garage door only opens a foot from ground

My garage door only opens about a foot from the ground and stops. Press the botton againa nd it goes down, but again will only open a foot. Does the same thing with both remotes and main controller. This never happened before until I wanted to open the garage door just enough to get air inside so I pressed the botton and waited until the door was slightly opened and then I pressed the button and it stopped. Now that is as far as it will open.

Any ideas?

Re: Garage door only opens a foot from ground

Its due to the gear stucked problem! you should get it repaired by the mechanic! its not any other remote control problem.

Chamberlain power drive garage door opener stops prematurely in both opening and closing

I'm not familiar with the operation of this particular device but, based on past experience with others, I would say that if this is a newly-installed device it still has the factory safety settings and they're too low for your installation. There should be two knobs on the case to set the tolerances for raising and lowering the door; one to protect against blockages on the way up and the other on the way down. Try putting them both at the maximum. If that works, reattach the door and check again. If it still works, turn the "up" control down until it doesn't anymore then turn it back up just a bit. Then put a full roll of paper towels on the floor and adjust the "down" control until the door going down stops and reverses when the cardboard tube in the middle of the roll starts to deform. Good luck!

I had this problem too.Apparently you have to shoot a deadlock (time slow) down AFTER hitting the "garage door button" looking thing.

"Before you press the button on the wall, have a Deadlock blast ready. Flip the switch and shoot the blast through the window, toward the door that just opened on the other side. Quickly make your way around to the left and through the open door."
