Sound like the "outfit" that worked on your operator did not change the bottom bushing on your motor mounting plate. Some "outfits" only change the white gear #41A2817 and some change the gear shaft assy. #41C4220A without changing the bottom bushing.

The motor runs but the chain does not move, we just had it worked on 1 month ago and now this, please help


IF THE MOTOR IS JAMMED (JUST HUMS) LOOSEN THE CHAIN AND ADJUST THE LIMITS AND TIGHTEN CHAIN.

IF THE MOTOR ACTUALLY RUNS AND THE CHAIN DOES NOT MOVE THE DRIVE GEARS NEED TO BE REPLACED. THEY SELL A KIT THAT INCLUDES THE BUSHINGS AND SHAFT. DO NOT BUY THE SMALLER KIT AND DO NOT REPLACE ONLY ONE GEAR (THE OLDER WORN GEAR WILL CHEW UP THE NEW GEAR) THIS MAY BE WHAT YOU HAD DONE - IF SO CALL THE SERVICE GUY THAT DID THE POOR REPAIR AND HE SHOULD REPLACE BOTH GEARS UNDER HIS SERVICE WARRANTY. ANYONE WORKING ON THESE SHOULD KNOW BETTER.

GOOD LUCK.

Garage opener try to close door when door at close position


There are upper and lower limit settings, it sounds like you have the lower limit set to low. Adjust it so it stops the door as it contacts the floor and see if this solves the problem. It is possible these limit controls are damaged and will not stay set. If that is the case it may be best to replace the opener if you cannot find a replacement.

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.

Garage Door opened but will not close. I opened


I think the trolley has jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. Remove the bolt and then run the door until it is closed. With the door closed locate the 'up limit' control on the side of the motor unit. Turn this 2 turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Replace the bolt.

Chamberlin Liftmaster 2245 won't open or close, just hums


If your door is stuck in the open position you need to see if the trolley is jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. If it is, loosen the chain enough to remove the tension from the trolley. Run the motor until the door closes and then locate the 'up limit' on the side of the motor unit. Turn this control 2 full turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Tighten the chain.

Liftmaster 1/3 HP - humming, but does not open.


It's the gear drive. There are kits online for about $40, if you're semi-handy you can replace it yourself. Search for liftmaster replacement parts.

Liftmaster Wall Control Button not working after replacing gear


Check wiring back to unit to make sure it's not shorted or broken. You can also reset the garage door opener by unplugging it for a few minutes and plugging it back in.
