Garage Door issue

I recently noticed that when my garage door would open it wouldn't go all the way back but I could still easily pull my car into the garage so I didn't try to solve the problem. Then just a couple of days ago the garage door will now open all the way but when it closes it stops about 3 feet short. It's a Wayne Dalton brand, model BDOR-2000/BIRW-2000.

Thanks for your help!

You can always check the sensors also, or it could be the rollers.. also make sure that the emergency pull is on correctly.

Check the contact at the bottom of the socket and (with the unit unplugged) lift (or pull) it up to make contact with the bulb easier or tighten the bulb a bit more than normal.

Cannot open my garage door manually after I disengage it from the garage door opener (chain drive)

They are not light weight but there is no reason if the motor can raise it, then you cannot raise it by hand.

How to open the door if no electricity

Almost all garage door openers have a switch mechanism that will allow you to open the door manually. It is usually a pull cord on the motor or track. Pulling it down usually deactivates automatic mode. Just pull it up into position when the electricity comes back on.

Fix my Craftsman 139.53973SRT garage door opener? When the button is pushed, the motor runs but the chain doesn&#39;t move. When I get on a ladder and try to pull the chain (help it along) it wil

If you disconnect the chain from the door (like you would do if the electricity went out and you needed to get the car in/out). Can you easily open and close the door by yourself? (it should not slam when closing).

If not then your springs could be bad or not set to the correct torque.

If you can open and close easily the door then there could be a issue with the motor or the gearing. BTW sears does not make garage door openers. They have OEM's rebrand their with sear's label. You don't need to have sear come out maybe a generic garage door person or even a handyman. But unless it's under warranty it won't be free.

Re: garage door opener . i recently replaced the battery in my craftsman wireless keypad now the code doesnt work and i cant get the door open to press the reset button. how do i fix

Changing the battery wouldn't have caused the keypad to quit. You must have had a problem before the battery change. If you have a vault door. That is one with no other way to enter you will have to call a door technician. They can drill a hole in the door, use a special tool to pull the release and then install a keyed release in the hole they drilled.

Hello we have a Chamberlin 2265R 1/2 HP gargare door opener. There are two issues. 1) recently when we press the remote to open the garage door the door will travel a short distance then stop press it...

I have recently had the same problem. I found one of the brackets on the garage door was broken. The broken piece which was hanging may have been interfeering with the traveling of the door. It was a diamond shapped bracket labeled N1. the door opens and closes, plus putting stress on the dootr. works fine now, i am in the process as we speak to find a replacement bracket. It was driving me crazy. The door would open fine, but when closing it would stop then go back up, the light would flash. Check all yhe brackets on the garage door itself.

Garage door opener wont switch from manual to electric again

I think what you mean is you pulled the rope to open and close the door manually and now you can't get the two halves of the trolley to reconnect.
If so, pull straight down on the rope and release. Then run the door so the two halves of the trolley connect. You may have to do that last step manually. If this isn't your problem post back.

The liftmaster garage door opener issues

If you have a Chraftsman/Liftmaster:
1.Check to see if the door is running correctly.
  A. Run the door down and pull the emergency release. See if the door will run easily by itself.
  1. If it runs hard by hand try lubricating the rollers and hinges with silicone spray or some form of lubricant (not WD 40)
  2. If the door is heavy and falls back to the ground, you probably have a spring issue (either broken or needs more tension) in this case call a professional door repair company in your area.
2. If the door runs fine your gears might br out of your opreator. Open the case and look for a white powder. If you see that and your gaers look worn repace the gaers with 41c4220a gear kit.

Remotes don't work

I recently had Verizon FIOS equipment installed in my garage (for phone, internet and TV), which is plugged into a 110 volt electrical outlet. Thinking this equipment might be causing some RF interference, I unplugged the FIOS equipment, and both garage door openers immediately worked perfectly again!
After reconnecting the FIOS equipment, I then plugged the garage door opener into a different electrical outlet approximately 15 ft. away via an extension cord, and the openers continue to work fine. Fingers crossed, I hope the issue is permanently resolved.
