Problem with Crafman garage door opening when it's cold

green23December 15, 2008

When the temp. goes below 35 degrees my garage door goes up about a foot and stops. It will go up if you are lifting as the door is raising. Why would this happen only in colder weather.

Thanks for any help or advise

If anyone used grease in the past it can cause this problem. On the rear of the motor unit you will find a control called the "up force." Increase this about 1/4 turn.
