Synonyms of "Open" and their differences

A: That's a tough one! The phrase 'open up' has the slight nuance of being a longer process, whereas 'open' is seen as quicker and easier. For example, if you were to 'open the door' verses 'open up the door'. There is an implied process of opening the door, such as a lock or latch or puzzle.
Hope that helps! :)
Q: What is the difference between Open and open up ?
A: They mean the same thing, but the "up" to my ear adds a slight nuance of it being a longer process. For example, I would tend to say "I opened the door to the store" in the morning, but I "opened up the store," meaning that I went through the whole process of unlocking the door, getting the cash register ready etc.

I would suggest the phrase without "up" unless there's more to it than just turning the handle. If you have to unlock several bolts, pull hard etc., you might say "I opened up the door."

On the other hand, sometimes, 'open up' can also be an idiom. I could say, "I wish you would open up to me." Or "I felt I couldn't open up to anybody, not even to my best friend."

It means to to talk in a free and honest way.
Q: What is the difference between It's not opening. and It won't open and It is not going to open. and It won't be opening. ?
A: "It's not opening" means that you are in the motion of trying to open something, like a door. "It won't open" is similar to the first phase, but it's kind of used after several attempts of trying to open the door. "It's not going to open" is close to the second phase, but it's kind of used when you are skeptical that whether or not it's going to open, because you had already tried. The last one is kind of like you lost hope of it opening, like you accepted that it won't be opening. I hope this makes sense, they are all relatively similar to each other, each one is situational based.
Q: What is the difference between open and open up ?
A: To 'open' something is to make something closed not closed. For example, to open a box, open a door, open a cupboard. Also, 'open your mind' is a way of saying 'be ready to consider concepts which you previously strongly disagreed with'.

To 'open up' is when you allow yourself to be emotional around others, or to speak of emotional things around others. (This makes sense as someone who does not wish to show others their vulnerabilities is 'closed').
