    Door stays 1" open

    Post  Cporter on Fri May 03, 2013 2:52 pm

    I apologize if this is already asked in another thread.

    I have a Craftsman garage door opener. When I close the door, it will respond and go down but it will stop about 1" from the ground. If I pull the chord and disengage the door from the track, the door drops the remaining 1". Any suggestions?

    You'll need to adjust the down travel limit. You should see an up limit and a down limit adjustment screw/knob on the powerhead (depending on what model you have and how old your opener is). Increase the down travel by turning the down limit travel a quarter turn (or less) and test it.
