garage door sticks/binds on way up on last panel. I have lubricated everything,
rollers, joints,pulleys etc. When opener is disengaged, door works perfectly by
hand. This door is 25 years old, but the electronic opener is about 3 years old,
it seems to work fine with the remote. I don't understand why it goes 3/4ths the
way up before it starts binging on the left side as you face garage from
outside. There are no bad rollers, the 2 main springs on each side are not
broke. For the time being we are just operating the door by hand. Thanks in
advance for any help you could give.

Good sign is if one side sits high relative the other when closed w/o
any latching to hold it down and disconnected from the opener.
Also, even if the rollers themselves seem ok, after 25 yr it's possible
a guide has gotten worn or misadjusted and is causing binding.
By hand you typically don't apply a fixed force continuously as does the
opener; thus things have a chance to move and correct themselves before
the door actually binds...
