SOURCE: Garage door opener (chain) motor runs in reverse. Trolley slides forward trying to close door, even though it is closed, instead of sliding toward motor to open door. Happened out of the blue - was
Loosen the chain enough that you can remove it from the sprocket. Run the opener until the sprocket turns counterclockwise and stops. With the door in the open position replace the chain. You will probably need to adjust your open and close limits per your owners manual.

It sure sounds like you have a broken door spring. While you are at it remove the cover and take a good look at the drive gear. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. Might be stripped and unable to take the weight of the 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.

Testimonial: "Awesome. Thank you so much, Don. "
IF THE OPENER IS IN THE OPEN POSITION THERE IS NOTHING TO LOCK IT IN THE CLOSED POSITION.
YOU CAN UNPLUG THE UNIT AND PLACE A VICE GRIP ABOVE A ROLLER ON THE TRACK. THIS WILL SECURE THE DOOR UNTIL POWER COMES BACK ON - DO NOT LEAVE THE UNIT PLUGGED IN - IT COULD BE DAMAGED BY A POWER SURGE WHEN THE POWER COMES BACK ON (ALL ELECTRONICS IN THE HOUSE SHOULD BE UNPLUGGED) ALSO IF YOU FORGET AND PUSH THE BUTTON THE VICE GRIP WOULD CAUSE THE DOOR TO COME OUT OF THE TRACK, MAKING YOUR CURRENT ISSUE SEEM SMALL.
