For this, you need to disconnect the opener by pulling the release handle. Alone or with help from other people, lift the door up until it is opened half way through. Release the door to see what happens. If it goes up or down fast, the spring has to be adjusted right away. If it stays in place or moves up or down just a bit, you can keep on using your door conveniently.
