Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+

1 Answer

Wayne Dalton, Classic drive Model 3018. The garage door opens without any problem; however, when in pressing the button to close it, it goes 1-2 feet and then goes back up. I checked the sensors and it does not appear to be the problem. Any suggestions would be a great help before I have to go out and replace it. thanks

Look for a broken spring/cable first. Then run the door manually and look for any problems with the door closing.

How do I replace cables on a wayne Dalton 3018?


You don't. The springs are inside the torquemaster and if you don't know what you are doing, you can get severely hurt. Call a Wayne Dalton dealer and let the pro's do it. Chances are your springs are broken anyway if the cables are off. Or better yet, call any other dealer and let them do a Torsion conversion and get rid of that torquemaster so you can work on it next time.

Release the garage door from the opener and open the door by hand, if it is vey heavy you may have a broke spring inside the torsion bar above the header, check then to see if the opener goes through the complete cycle O K with the door not attached. If you don't have a broken spring you may need to increase the up force on the opener head.

Check your door springs. Usually just over the door and can be seen when the door is closed. A broken spring is the most common cause of this problem.
