Garage door - fix sprocket, now won't move whole way

I used the replacement sprocket set referenced in another thread and the effort was relatively painless. I put eveerything back together (including replacing the worm drive), and now the door will only open about 1 foot and then it goes back down. The motion is smooth, and I can operate it manually just fine, it seems like the limits are wierd or something is out of line internally.

The Up force and down force controls will turn, but without any noticable effect.

It is a Craftsman model.

Found the issue

Fortunately, I left the cover off for testing. After looking at the limit mechanism, I found the connection to the board had accidentally come unplugged in the process. It works now.
