Your gears are probablly shreaded. the good news is that your motor isnt dead. you will probabllly need new gears depending upon which ones were shreaded. seeing plastic shavings and or plastic pieces inside unit is an indication of that

Garage door opener not working


Sensor must show steady light to close circuit and let opener work. If aligned, then there is a loose or broken wire. Try reaiming first to get steady light. Then check all wires . Another way to test and prove that is the issue is if u hold down the wired button at ur back door and the opener closes, then it is sensor issue. Good luck.

is it gear or chain, is it genie or liftmaster. check for smooth operation of door by disconnecting motor. check tightness of cable/chain running down rail. this may be putting undue stress on gears and ruining plastic drive gear.

Garage door moves few inches and stops, springs are fine, sensros are fine.


If it is not blinking when it stops, then the capacitor is blown. Replace the capacitor and it should resolve the problem.

I can move the chain freely by hand but when I hit


Sounds like you are in need of replacement gears. It is like the transmission going out in your car. I would leave this to a pro but if you want to do it parts can be found at genie.com or overheaddoor.com. Thanks BB
