garage door opener is a tease!

My garage door opener is definately not new, but it came with the house we just bought 9/99. It will stop half -way down then go back up again sometimes, or start to go up, then stop mid-way, or sometimes (rarely) it works fine. This just started when the weather got colder. Could this have anything to do with it? Thanks, ---Pam

hi pamerly
post the brand name of your opener and ill help you out there is a force adjustment on your opener you may need to turn up a little bit in colder weather not to much though also lubricate your hinges,rollers,and springs on the door will help alot

hi pamerly
with that model there are two screws near the top of the opener on the sides turn them clockwise about 1/2 turn this will turn the force up,sorry to say though if this doesnt work you truly are better off getting a new operator,being as how this one is about 15-20 years old,also i forgot to tell u when u lubricate your door use wd-40 thank you hope i helped
