Question about Building Materials
I don't know what else I can add. I called Sears repair but they want $99 just to come out to diagnose the unit. Parts and labor would be extra!
If you disconnect the chain from the door (like you would do if the electricity went out and you needed to get the car in/out). Can you easily open and close the door by yourself? (it should not slam when closing).
If not then your springs could be bad or not set to the correct torque.
If you can open and close easily the door then there could be a issue with the motor or the gearing. BTW sears does not make garage door openers. They have OEM's rebrand their with sear's label. You don't need to have sear come out maybe a generic garage door person or even a handyman. But unless it's under warranty it won't be free.

The only procedure I have ever followed is to press the learn button and then enter the code, and not do anything else. I think your last step of holding the button until the light goes out is clearing codes as fast as you enter them. Just stop after you enter your code and let the learn mode time out on its own. That should do it.
And don't put your head through the wall. It just causes more headaches.

The drive gear is most likely stripped. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor. The parts number is 41A2817 and is available from Sears or any good door opener service company. It comes with instructions.
