Shimano Di2 front derailleur adjustment


I know my Shimano Di2 front derailleur needs an adjustment. I see lots of good UTube out there. My specific problem is the chain binds when shifting small ring to large. I back peddle a little bit - and usually I'm fine from there. But this morning - the issue through my read derailleur into crash mode. So this is becoming more then just a nuisance.

Any specific ideas on what to look for/

You aren't backpedaling while you are shifting are you? Any time you shift, you should always be pedaling forward. Waiting to shift until your RPM is very low will also present problems.

New bike?

Watch the YT videos. Make sure the cage is parallel w/ the c-rings. Make sure it's not too high or too low. Make sure the support screw is engage. Make sure the limit screw(s) are properly adjusted. No one here can give you a 100% answer w/o seeing the bike.
