Check the door springs. May have a broken one. Also remove the cover and look at the drive gear. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. It could be stripped.

My Craftsman garage door will not close, only a few inches at a time


have a problem which returns every year when outdoor temperatures drop close to freezing. garage door will open only a few inches, then stops. I can close it and try opening it again... same result. After five or six such attempts it typically will open. Interestingly, when I push the switch button mounted on the interior wall of my garage and keep it pushed, the door will open, until I release the button at which point it stops opening.

Garage door only raises about two inches then stops.


Check the door springs and also remove the cover from the motor unit and check the drive gear. The door spring could be broken or the drive gear may be stripped.

The sensors only work when the door is closing.

Garage door not opening properly.


Check the springs on your garage door. If one is broken, the opener will not have enough power to raise up and it will stop like that.Or the up and down limit settings have gone off or bad.

Craftsman garage door does not open all the way stops @12 inches


You most likely have a broken door spring. Release the door from the opener and try lifting it by hand. Look above the door for the springs.

Door opens only 6 inches and stuck


I would try jumping a wire across the white & red terminal to see if your safety sensors are working Properly! If your door opens you have a loose connection or faulty sensors.
