Open Question

I have a Chamberlain Electrolift Executive G5446 and trying to figure out how & what to adjust. When the door is up, it slants downward. When it rains you have to physically lift on the door in order for it to open. So, do I adjust the bars that are part of the spring hinge assembly, the drive chain, etc. I was searching for a manual, but noluck so far, so thought I give this a try. Thanks for any advice. John

some chainsaws have different knotches where the bar locks onto the saw. loosen the nuts and see if you can move the bar.

SOURCE: replaced sprocket and worm gear on chamberlain 1/2 opener

The easiest way to fix this would be to take the chain off the sproket with the door and the trolley in the down position. Next hit the wall button and pay attn. to weather the gear is turning clockwise, you want it to turn that direction, wait until the unit stops by itself, next put the chain back on and now you should be able to adjust the limits. otherwise you should call a local professional. They will usually service your door as well as fix your opener.

SOURCE: premature flap closure on Kohler actuator chain lift

there may be water in the bulb on the flapper. there needs to be only water so it floats while there is water in the tank. if the air is leaking out, the flapper won't float. it might be best to replace the flapper. it's only a few dollars at home depot or lowe's.

SOURCE: Husqvarna 136 chain brake handle spring.

You can get an IPL here:
I don't think this has the detail you need.
If it were me I'd visit my friendly neighborhood Husky chainsaw seller (not Big Box Store) and ask to look at the clutch cover with the brake installed (take a camera). I'd probably ask for a quote for their repair too. HTH
Your model is no longer sold. The seller will know what model replaced it and may be willing to explain the repair procedure for your saw you. Take the cover and loose parts with you.

Replaced a garage door opener (motor only) will only go downward a foot then back to the up position...tried the force button and the spring adjustment. why wont it work

Try this.

Loosen the chain enough so that you can remove it from the sprocket above the motor unit. With the door closed run the motor until the sprocket turns clockwise and stops. With everything attached replace and tighten the chain. Some adjusting of the up and down limits will probably be required.

Lights for door opener do not come on when door is opened or closed. Where do I find switch that controls this. The wall-mounted control does not appear to function. It is a Liftmaster professional...

I have an Electro Lift model #G5446. The light switch in the opener has a break in the hair-like wire wrapping the activator arm. Thus my light doesn't work. I crazy glued the wire and it worked about 10 times, but quit again. I'm afraid that heat affected it. It only takes loosening 3 screws to remove it, and it seems to be an easy replacement---why can't I find the part???

The door no longer closes correctly leaving a gap at the top. When open it is no longer horizontal but falls to a downward slant

It sounds to me that the oven door hinges need to be replaced, especially if it is a drop down door
They need replacing as a pair.
There is no povision made for adjustment on hinges.
Hope this helps you.
