I have a Liftmaster 1265-267 that clicks when I hit the remote but is not moving drive chain or gears. Any ideas if there is a reset or something I can check? Have a new garage spring. signal is getting recieved but it is only clicking. Also, there is a little yellow/orange flashing light on one side.

SOURCE: car is NOT starting. Lights are not

is the car starting using the key? (manually), if so, then replace the remote battery, if problem still persists, then check the remote & the car's receiver...
the car's battery or some controller might be out-of-service!
new cars are electronically controlled, if any problem occurs, it jams the whole car,  perhaps this might be your case.. For your Safety: it is recommended to ask help from Honda Service Centre!!

SOURCE: door dosent close.move about 1 ft then opens

You may not have had the motor shaft pushed all the way back when you tightened the coupler after replacing the worm gear. Loosen the coupler up and from the front of the motor (opposite end in which the coupler is on) push the shaft back as far as it will go. Hold it there while you tighten the coupler back up and then try it.

On the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go you will find the smart/learn button. Press and hold the button on your clicker while you press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Should do the trick.

Motor is running but the chain is not moving. When I assist it moves a few inches then stops both directions. Almost as if teeth are boken in a wheel.

You are correct. There is a gear drive system and the gear is stripped. you can have the gear replaced and not have to purchase a new lift.

If your door is stuck in the open position the trolley is most likely jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. You should be able to loosen the chain enough that it releases the pressure on the trolley and then close the door. While the door is closed, locate the 'up limit' control which is on the side of the motor unit. Turn this control 2 full turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover and then tighten the chain.

Garage door does not open or close

You have a stripped drive gear. Remove the cover from the motor unit and you will find white sawdust all over. The part number for the gear kit is 41A2817 and is available at any good door opener service company. It comes with instructions.
