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

1 Answer

Our Master Mechanic model 601MM garage door opener goes up about 8" and down 6" when you go to open it. I have checked the safety and they both have the green light and if you hit the button and put your hand over the stop area it will stop it. What could it be thats making it just go that little bit and come back down. I have unhocked the door and it doesn't make any difference

IF IT IS BAD OR THE CUP HAS MOVED OUT OF THE SENSOR YOU WILL GET THE EXACT SYMPTOM YOU DESCRIBE.

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.

Check to make sure you don't have a broken door spring. Also remove the cover from the motor unit and check the drive gear. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. It may be going bad and if it is it will be obvious. On the rear of the motor unit you will find the 'up force' adjustment. Increase this a bit and try.

Most likely your door sensors are out of alignment. Make sure they are pointed directly at one another.

My garage door bucks like a bronco


You have a door problem. The reason the door is reversing to the open position is because when it bucks the safety senses something wrong. Release the door from the opener and operate it by hand. You should find something.

Garrage door opener ability to close the garrage door


HOLDING DOWN THE WALL BUTTON OVERRIDES THE SAFETY EYES.
WHEN HOLDING IT DOWN MAKES THE DOOR CLOSE PROPERLY THE PROBLEM IS IN THE SAFETY EYES.

ARE BOTH LEDS ON? - CHECK FOR A LOOSE OR BROKEN WIRE.
ARE THE EYES WIRED CORRECTLY?
ARE THEY AIMED AT EACH OTHER?

Pressing remotes the door won't go u[


It sounds like you have the lock enguaged. When it is flashing it locks out all remote access. Hold the lock button for 3 seconds. The green light should go solid. On the issue of closing, it is most likely a safety eye issue. Hold down the wall button. If it closes it is the safety eyes. Holding the button overrides the safety eyes. Make sure that thelight on both eyes are both lit.

Door opens only 6 inches and stuck


I would try jumping a wire across the white & red terminal to see if your safety sensors are working Properly! If your door opens you have a loose connection or faulty sensors.

Check the light beam safety at the door's bottom, to see if something is getting in the line of sight.
