Garage Door opener

I installed a drive gear and a worm gear on my old motor and then when I reinstalled it it goes up fine but I have to push the button repeatedly to get it to go up. Follow the link to see what I mean.

On the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go you will find the 'down force'. Try increasing this a bit and see if it doesn't improve.

I have messed with those screws and there is no improvement. But just in case I tried what you said with the same result.

As for my problem it was a broken solder on the board which I fixed but thanks for the help.

Alright so after I repaired that solder it worked fine for a bit but now I doesn't open all the way and it somtimes closes all the way but no matter how far it closes it reverses. It works if I hit the button wait for it to reverse then hit the button twice quickly.
