    This is worthless I will go to the dealer.



    Seems like a ploy to sell advise, in bad economic times one should be offering to support one's product not sell a service.



    I feel like wjhen I came to you for assisance with your brand I got some set FAQs and an offer to sell a service.



    Offer solutioons at a cost may save the corporation some costs, however reduced satisfaction with your product will cost you customers.

There is most likely a problem with the balance of the door. Release the door from the opener by pulling the red handle and lift the door manually. You should not have to apply more than 20lbs to lift it. When the door is at each hinge point and all the way up, it should stay by itsself. If it does not, the springs need to be adjusted or you will continue to replace gears.

How much is gear kit for 1/2 #41A2817?


Gear kits can be purchased for chain drive machines from any of these 3 brand names ...Liftmaster/sears craftsman /chamberlain / All 3 of these brand names are manufactured by Liftmaster the worlds largest maker of garage door openers and related parts ! You can purchase a gear kit on ebay for around $30 or less depending on the seller ! If you go to garage door parts sites it will be slightly higher so your best bet is EBAY , The gear kit only requires the main gear and sprocket housing that attaches with 3 screws , just remember after the gear is installed that you run the motor co that the trolley starts in the door down position otherwise you risk having the trolley smack into the opener , this is crucial for any travel adjustments that are made later! Hope this helps you ,sincerely Glenn
