Question about Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

Garage door only goes one third of the way down and stops. It was about to hit the car and I hit the button a couple of times so that could have thrown it off. Any thoughts???? Thanks so much

Hello sue... That activity must have thrown the door out of adjustment.. On the motor unit there are high limit and a low limit adjusting screws. The low limit screw needs to be adjusted to move the door down until it closes properly. Just adjust it 1/4 turn at a time and then test it to see where the door is at. Joe

Erratic garage door opener


It is an adjustment problem. Any obstruction and the door goes up again. So try adjusting again but don't leave space to invite rodents that will cause damage to car wiring. I am just going thru that.

Door sensors have nothing to do with door opening. Only closing. It sounds like you have a bad gear in the motor unit. Remove the cover and it will be obvious if the gear is bad.

Door goes up just past eye and stops. If I hold button down will go up all the way. Must hold button down for down position also or stops every couple feet.


Check your door springs and also remove the cover and check the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor and may be stripped. You need to check your door sensors also. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a bit if necessary.

Sears technical support for craftsman products- Will not work with car and remote. Goes down with internal contol, but goes right back up. Tried resetting it fro car and remote, with no results


Sounds like you have a couple problems. The remotes not working is probably the logic board. The door coming right back up is either the door sensors misaligned or the door is traveling too far and hitting the floor.

Worked great the past 2 years. Now, garage door


Remove the cover and take a look at the drive gear. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. Most likely stripped.

Remote does not open or close garage door; inside button flashes


What has happened is that you electric eyes are blocked or have gone out. The eyes are at the garage door about a foot of the ground on both sides. There should be a red or green light on one of them. If not some thing is blocking the beam that goes across the door. It is a safety beam so kids can nt get hurt when the door is coming down. If the beam is broke the door will go back up.
