Garage door repairGot any garage door repair guys on BGP.
Ours opened fine this morning, went to close it and it only went half way and stopped and that is all it will do. Nothing seems stuck or jammed. Its a belt drive chamberlain unit. With the door hooked to it or not it will only go half way now.Advertisement

Check to see if the track has possibly twisted a little bit on either side. If not that look at all cables to see if any are frayed and hanging up.

After that I got nothing, since it doesn't see to be your opener.

Aug 12, 17, 06:10 PM #6Check the sensor and see if it has moved for some reason. When I say sensor I mean the track sensor that tells the motor when the door has reached closure. It should be on the track where the door connects to the motor. There will be one at the open position and one at the close position. I had one come loose once and slid about half way up the track.

Look in your manual or on line to see how. Sometimes they just lose they're brain. If it has an on board battery, good chance that is dying.

Spring adjustment/upgrade makes the door weigh zero. Nothing wrong with moving to a 1 1/4 though.
I would almost bet your battery is dying.
