Sesam 200 garagedoor opener/lift will not run anymore

HI I have a sesam 200 garagedoor opener/lift.Suddenly, it stopped working. After 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

    I have investigated the problem and did found out that the copper wires of the motor are broken. A new motor costs as much as a new doorlift. So I have decided to buy a new one.
    Thanks anyway!

    ok lets put things back one at a time, with just the motor hooked up see if it wants to run the full cycle or does it stop after three seconds?

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.

The belt stopped suddenly and now won't work anymore

I would check your speed sensor. I've never seen one of these just stop suddenly. But running for a min or so is one of the signs a speed sensor gives you.( especially if the treadmill want speed up while it running) Check this out and if it"s not the problem get as much info as poss to help diag.
