      I have had the problem with every Sears garage door opener I have owned. These were located in Utah and Colorado. That is 4 different models over the last 20 years. Latest model was purchased in 1997. My issue only starts when the temperature is below 0. I have adjusted the torque settings and the garage door spring tension but nothing fixes the probelm. Seems to be a design defect.
