    Hello,
    I have a craftsman 1/2hp garage door opener that acting funny. From time to time the door will open about a foot and stop. Press the button again, the door closes. This is typically repeated 2-4 times before the door actually opens. I have even witness this happen when the door is disconnected from the trolley. 
    I've read a few other forums and based on that information I performed or checked the following.
    -replaced the worm gears on drive motor
    -check the door moves freely when disconnected from the trolley.
    -check springs (recently replaced last year).
    -checked alignment of door sensors “Green Lights”.
    -adjusted the "power up" dial.
     
    If anyone has a suggestions on what I should do next that would be greatly appreciated, because this is really frustrating.  
    Thanks,
    Adam
