Need Garage Door Help

I'm having a problem with my garage door. It's going down and then coming back up before it closes. Sometimes it makes it an inch. Sometimes it makes it a foot. Sometimes it makes it almost all the way down. Sometimes it actually closes all the way. There is really no rhyme nor reason for why it is stopping.

It will close all the way if I hold down the main button inside my garage or the "Enter" button on my keypad. Holding down the button on the remote doesn't work.

I've checked the sensors, and there doesn't seem to be a problem there. I have also greased the tracks. Neither have helped. I'm about to call a professional, but I'm sure he'll turn one screw and charge me $150. I'm more worried about looking like an idiot than I am paying the $150. Also, I'm an idiot.

It stayed where it was. Which direction do I adjust the down force? Also, there are screws on the side of the opener as well.

The Sears instruction manual was exactly the same except it said Craftsman where the other manual said Chamberlain.
Yup.....They made really good priced units (Chamberlain) that held up and lasted..Buying from Sears was probably good becuase you get the same4 thing, often on special with extra remotes and/or security pads for the exterior thrown in......And sears had decent prices frequently on the installation as well.

I think a 10 year old would be strong enough.

The down force should have an arrow pointing down next to it. The numbers only go from 1-10. Adjust it one number down at a time until it closes fully.

Your travel adjustment screws are different. You'll actually need a screwdriver to turn those. You should be able to adjust the down force with your hand.

I think I'm supposed to say "rep" or something. I've only given one other rep ever.

make sure to test the safety reverse when youre done ****ign with it

Quote:
Place a one inch board (or 2 x 4 laid flat) on the floor centered under the garage door. Operate the door in the down direction. The door must reverse on striking the board. If it does not, refer to your owner´s manual, call your LiftMaster Authorized Dealer or speak to one of our technical service representatives by calling the S.O.S. HotLineŽ at 1-800-528-5880. Failure to pass the above test could result in serious injury or death.
