Craftsman Garage Door Opener

All of a sudden yesterday this garage door opener will not operate properly. After adjusting every dial I can find I now have the door able to go down but it goes up again automatically after about 2 seconds. I can't get it to stay closed. Please help.

RE: Craftsman Garage Door Opener

On the side of the motor unit you will find the 'down limit' control. Turn it a couple turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover and check. Some tweaking one way or another may be necessary. What I think is happening is the door is hitting the floor and the safety senses it has hit something and reverses it to the open position.

how to close the gap between the garage door and the frame?

I have Craftsmen garage door opener (3yr old). There is
about half an inch gap between the door and the frame when
shut. Not all the way, just about 3feet from the floor.
The gap brings in snow, it gets windy and cold too.
How do I minimize the gap? Can I do adjustment myself
or can a professional garage door repairman can do it?
Please offer me suggestions.

andy I think you need a door repairman out.
