    The garage door opener has been doing this since the day I installed it 3 years ago. I just never decided to fuck with it because I leave the door pad locked and have been opening/closing it manually.

    Its not trying to close to far. I adjusted the down travel closing point to a point that is a few inches above the ground to be sure. If I guide the door down past the "bounce" point it goes as far as it should and stops.

    There is nothing around or under the door causing this. The track and trim are all free of debris. None of the wheels are "out of whack" either. The door glides very freely by hand. My place was built in 2007 and everything is practically brand new.

    Heres the video. I think it has something to do with the springs putting to much resistance on the door when it gets 90% of the way down:

    You tool box, my Ex Cumdumpsters garage did the same thing when it was cold. Once it would get above 30 degrees it would start working, I guess that was a miracle and I guess everyone else that said its the cold was wrong too. Now get back too suckling on the teet of whalen.
