If you’re in higher elevations, cold weather is hard on garage doors. Chilly weather below 35 degrees can thicken the oil that lubricates the motor, causing it to run slowly. You may need to set the “down force” setting during particularly cold weather so the door can completely close with the floor. If the door is still too heavy, place it into mechanical mode by turning off the opener. Open it manually. If it still too heavy, you may be having problems with the springs.
