My garage roller door will open but not close what is wrong?

Assuming you mean your home sectional door, not roller door. A roller door is what commercial companies use on docks or storage buildings. Also assuming you mean that your motor unit (the opener) won't close it, not that you can't pull it down manually. With all of those assumptions, I would say either your sensors are misaligned or blocked, or your force needs adjusting, or your springs need adjusting. If you give more details on your questions, you are likely to get more specific responses.

I have a 6 year old craftsman 1/2 HP model139.53985D garage door opener. Sometimes it open/closes fine - other times it opens or closes 6 inches at a time and stops. Springs are fine, worm gear is fine -...

Generally when the door is closing any problem will cause the door to reverse to the open position and stop. This is designed into it. You say your opener just stops when going up or down. This makes me think there is a bad connection somewhere and you are simply losing power. If this is so you should notice that all the small lights that are normally on go out. If this only occurs when the door is going up you may have a bad RPM sensor board. This is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor.

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.

Genie garage door comes down and goes back up.

You need a general inspection of all related parts. Make sure none of the track mounting bolts have loosened leaving a misalignment of track segments. CAREFULLY with power off use fingers. turn EACH roller. Something as simple as a bad roller bearing can cause this, even a flat spot on a worn roller. Rollers can be bought at a home supply store. These are 2 most causes.

On the back of the motor unit you will find the down force control. You may have to remove a light lens depending on your model. Increase this a 1/4 turn and try.
