Your door is traveling too far in the down direction. Locate the 'down limit' control on the side of your motor unit and turn the control one full turn in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Some tweaking will probably be necessary to get it just right.

My Lexus es300 2001 Doors get locked after i shut the even when I do not Lock the door. When I reopen the door with the key, the alarm goes up and will not stop until I start the engine again


Check your owners manual,you may have different programming modes for the locks ,such as automatic locking time etc.If you have different lock programming,reset the locks to a program you like.Also,sometimes just the action of shutting the door makes the lock button contacts touch inside the button and the doors lock,try shutting the door softly to check for this.

Garage door opens about 6 then stops. When closing the door reopens to about 6 then stops.


Something could be binding in the track. Try lubricating all the moving parts. Also, the IR sensor at the bottom, which is designed to prevent the door from hitting something, could need to be aimed again. On mine, the IR sending unit at the bottom was burned out. If you have the installation manual, it may have a trouble shooting guide.

Have a 600 series kenmore gas dryer. it turns on but it doesnt spin.


Hi fdelgad6922...
Here is a few things to check and maybe get your dryer going again.
I also added a link at the bottom of the page to show you how the belt routing goes on many machines

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley, or a faulty motor.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch,start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if necessary. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the two screws that hold the filter housing to the top of the dryer lid.
Then remove the top of the dryer by inserting a screwdriver between the top and frame on each side of the dryer to pop the lid up from the retaining clips.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards on a type of hinge and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine by disconnecting the door switch and removing the two screws located on either side of the dryer frame.
Move the door and front of machine forward to remove.
This will expose the belt,idler bracket and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor pulley.

While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil or a vasoline type of lubricant. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

Installed craftman garage door opener,door touches the bottom goes back up and stays open,have adjusted upforce and downforce many times,very little downforce when it touches the cement. Brian


On the side of the motor unit you will find the up and down limit adjustments. You need to turn the down limit a little in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Some tweaking and you should get it right.

I would first check to see if there is something that is obstructing the door, and if you cannot find anything, then you could take it to any electrical repair shop, and they could fix it for you.

My Lift Master Formula 1 is not closing all the time. It will close about 1~2 feet the reverse and reopen. This happens using the remote and the manual button. Also, after it reopens the light blinks...


I recommend this to everyone with garage door opener problems:

Use the pull cord and disconnect the opener from the door. Operate the opener and let the carrier slide back away from the door. Is the carrier moving smoothly when disconnected? Next, lift the door by hand from the bottom to the top. Is it moving smoothly? If not, lubricate the hubs of all the rollers on both sides of the door. Check the cable pulleys at the top sides of the door channel, lubricate them as well. Are all cables in all the pulleys, there are 4.

2002 Honda Odyssey: sliding door jolts/reopens when closing


Please check the aft track roller assembly. It is easiest to inspect from the rear of the van looking forward when the door is open. You'll see the rear hinge assembly clearly. The track rollers cannot be seen but you can pull outboard on the rear edge of the door--the door should not move outboard more than 1/8 of an inch. If it moves out more than this or feels sloppy, suspect damaged/missing track rollers. This will cause the hinge to chatter in the track and "jolt". It will also cause the door to misalign during the close phase preventing the close motor from properly engaging.
Replacing this part is no easy task but doable if you are good with cars. Check back here for more details if you want to try it, otherwise get a competent mechanic or the Honda dealership to do it.

Garage door won't stay closed


Your downforce adjustment may be set too high causing it to auto reverse when it touches down. Here is a link to a page giving different reasons why the door will not stay closed. The problems are highlighted in blue. Hope this helps.

Rollers are leaving black smudges on my checks


Are you positive that this is a 'roller' problem.  Black smudges usually indicate a drum problem (your toner cartridge).  If you pull it out, you'll see a flap that should move back and forth.  If you move that flap, you'll see a shiny cylendar.  That's the drum.  See if you can see any marks on it (don't touch it with your hands.) 

The problem is, it's hard to tell whether or not it's the drum just by looking.  Your best bet is to see if replacing the cartridge takes care of the problem.
