Newly Installed Sears 1/2 HP Garage Door Motor won't stop in the proper place - keeps trying to close the door when it's already closed


Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to have the door stop in the right place.

Was this door installed by a door installer or was it a DIY project?

If the assembly instructions were followed then I would suggest that you adjust the travel and force adjustment on the motor unit.

I would suggest adjusting the down travel adjustment so the door will stop just as it touches the floor.

You will need to use a ladder to get to the adjustments on the motor unit.

If it is traveling two far, then decrease the down travel screw by a half a turn, and check operation.

Then if you place a 2x4 the flat way in the center of the floor were the door touches the floor you can adjust force setting so when the door touches the 2x4 it will reverse and come back up. If you take the 2x4 out it should close tight but not reverse.

This should get the door adjusted correctly if the unit was put together correctly.

Please reply with the model number if you need more help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
