If you’re garage door only opens a couple of feet and then stops, it’s likely a setting is off.
Most garage door opener units have a force or sensitivity adjustment. You may just need to adjust that a bit.
You definitely don’t want to over-do it.
This issue can sometimes be caused by some other problem as well, and adjusting the sensitivity too much then causes a snow-ball effect.
If a very slight adjustment fails to correct the door opening process, we urge you to stop tinkering with it and call a professional.
