Motor Troubleshooting – Adjust your Limits

After you are finished checking your limits below. Make sure you check your SAFETY REVERSE

How to set your garage door limit.

Some times the limits get dirty and need to be cleaned BUT before you clean then try this .

MOVE the car all the way out of the garage and put a ladder near the motor and have a flat head screwdrive and then
look for the the two limit holes. They say DOWN and UP

THEN turn the DOWN limit IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OF THE ARROW. Try 2 full turns then then close the door and see if that helps.

IF that didn’t work try it turning 2 more full turns. Then open and close the door again.

IF that doesn’t work unplug the motor from the outlet and clean the limits with a fine piece of sandpaper in the diagram
below MARKED IN RED.

For CLARITY…

If you turn the DOWN limit in the direction of the arrow your telling the motor to close more.

If you turn the DOWN limit in the OPPOSITE direction of the arrow your telling the motor to close less

If you turn the UP limit in the direction of the arrow your telling the motor to open more.

If you turn the UP limit in the OPPOSITE direction of the arrow your telling the motor to open less.
