Stanley Garage Door Opener Problem

patriot74September 26, 2006

My Stanley has an issue with opening only halfway. This occurs when the weather gets colder and then goes away again in the summer. I've tried to WD-40 the chain, and all other moving parts. I know they don't still make Stanley, but I'm too cheap to get a new one if I can fix this one. Any ideas would be welcome. Thanks

Somewhere there is an up/open force adjustment that should help you but I am not familiar with Stanley. Here is a web site where you can download an owners manual (PDF format) for $7.50.

While a manual for an old Stanley door opener is impossible to find on the internet, here is an excellent link I found 12/13/10 to a 3200.44 model. It is very similar to my 3200.37. Extremely helpful for repairs with great pics and detailed info. Thanks to the site author - Tom!
