    I dont think it is the gears because the chain is moving I think I am missing a piece from the arm attached to the door and the chain because it is just moving straight through and isn't catching

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

Genie garage door operator will nor pull chain to open door< what could problem be?


Remove your door opener from your ceiling mount. Check the gear that moves the chain. Years ago many opener manufacturers changed from a metal to a plastic/teflon sprocket. This works well until it starts to wear down. IF this is the issue, the sprocket is cheap and easily replaced.

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.

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

Craftsman garage door opener 1/2 hp will not open door


It sounds like your chain is out of sync with the limit switches. Loosen the chain enough so that you can remove it from the sprocket on top of the motor unit. Now run the opener until the sprocket runs counterclockwise and stops. Now with everything attached and the door in the open position replace and tighten the chain. You are now in sync. You may need to tweak the up and down limit controls which are on the side of the motor unit.
