Sesam 200 garage door lift won't run anymore

HI I have a sesam 200 garagedoor opener/lift.Suddenly, it stopped working.I quickly switched, with the wall switch, between opening and closing and back again.The motor stopped, the lightbulb went broken, and after that the thing is almost dead.When I press the wall switch, I hear the power being applied to the motor for a few seconds, and then the power is switched off automatically (probably some safety mechanism).I have disassembled the motor, the motor runs free in its bearings, no damage on the gears.i don't know what the problem can be.Any suggestions?Thanks in advance.Alex

SOURCE: garage door stops and reverses either way-up or down-

If the light on the opener flashes when this happens, count the flashes (which indicate the type of problem) and consult your owners manual.  If you don't have the owners manual, you can find a digital copy online at the manufacturer's website. Also, check your manual for an adjustment that tells the opener how much resistance you want it to tolerate before reversing.

SOURCE: i am locked out of my garage

Pull the emergency release red handle down and back (toward the opener). The door can then be raised and lowered manually as often as necessary.

SOURCE: Door locked on safe

Brian We can't give advise on the safe but you can call the manufacture of the safe and if you have registered it they will help you otherwise federal law requires a lock smith to identify you and your information and your ownership of the safe before they will unlock it for you. This is to protect you or the safe owner and the lock smith from being sued and losing his licence.. There should be a sticker on the safe with a 800 number for you to call to get help. But you must have registered it first. They may have a way to verify it some other way but am not sure.

My neighbor's 2008 Camry is suddenly opening and closing my Craftsman garage door opener. He lives about 200 yards from me. How do we get it to stop? Thanks.

You did not post the model of the opener but there should be a set of switches that are very small and you use those to set the encoder frequency on both the remote and the opener.

Chamberlain Lift Master Pro Formula 1 only makes click sound

Is the door stuck in the open position? If so the trolley is probably jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. Loosen the chain enough to free the trolley and then run the opener until the door is closed. While the door is closed locate the 'up limit' on the side of the motor unit and turn this control 2 complete turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Tighten the chain.

Garagedoor intermittantly will not close. moves one or two inches, stops, then backs up. other times it works fine. when it fails to close, I unhook, manually close the door, rehook by pressing the power...

If the main light is flashing 10 times when the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the small light on each sensor is not flickering ever so slightly. This will cause an intermittent problem like you have. Tweak the sensors just a bit.

If the main light is not flashing 10 times you may just need to increase the 'down force' just a tad. This control is on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go.

Hi there. I have a Chamberlain Whisper Drive

I just had that problem this morning and the cause was that the springs that help hold the weight of the garage door were broken. This caused the garage door opener to raise the garage door a fe inches and then drop again. We called in a professional and $200 later we had new springs and everything works fine now.

Motor hums but nothing happens

I just had the same problem. Extreme cold, garage door stops working, motor hums, same here. I opened up the my garage door opener(after unplugging it), and found that the wormwheel had a wear spot on it. This is the gear that allows the motor to raise and lower the garage door. Any way, after the wife "sugested" that the door was too heavy to lift, I went and bought a new garage door lifter. But if you are handy dandy with tools, I have seen the wormwheel for sale here. It's the plastic wheel that went bad on me. If I would have found this before buying the garage door opener, I would have got the sprocket assembly. I hope this helps!
