Craftsman garage door opener has trouble opening and closing when it's cold out.

I have a Craftsman garage door opener (don't recall the model - the unit says 25th anniversary on it) that has trouble opening and closing when it's cold out. This has been going on for a few years but has become worse. When going up it will sometimes stop halfway. Most of the trouble comes when trying to close it. To get it to close all the way you have to fanagle with the large button attached to the inside wall. I've searched for an answer using Google. Most of those posts mention sensors and flashing lights. I don't recall the light flashing which is intended to tell you that something is blocking the beam and caused the door to open.

Please advise.
