Garage Door Opener Problems

Our Garage Door opener is Python2. It is about 3 year old intalled by the bulder in our new house. It is stopping halfway & does not close. I have to disengage & close manually. What is the problem?

Assuming there is nothing mechanically binding it, look at the body of the opener for the adjusters. Should be adjusters for travel and force. You may need to increase the down force. Make the adjustments a little at a time.

Thanks for the tip. I found 2 adjusting knobs on the unit. Itried to adjust but it still does not work right Now it is stopping at even hogher height & does not go back. I will try this again by turning them both to max & see what happens.
