QTIR,

YOU MGHT BE IN FOR A NEW OPENER OR AT LEAST A REPAIR BILL. IF YOU CAN CLIMB UP AND TAKE YOUR REMOTE WITH YOU. LOOK ON TOP OF THE OPENER AND LOOK WHERE THE CHAIN WRAPS AROUND THE DRIVE SPROCKET. STAY BACK A LITTLE AND PRESS THE REMOTE AND SEE IF THE SPROCKET MOVES A LITTLE. LISTEN FOR THE NOISE YOU TALKED ABOUT,IF IT'S COMING FROM INSIDE OF THE HOUSING OF THE OPENER IT'S PROBABLY THE DRIVE GEAR INSIDE THE OPENER. THEIR IS A WORM GEAR INSIDE THE OPENER THAT SOMETIMES IS MADE OF A PLASTIC RESIN OF SORTS. IT'S NOT REAL HARD TO FIX IF YOUR MECHANICALY INCLINED. IF NOT THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO CALL A REPAIRMAN. TO FIX IT YOURSELF IS A MATTER OF TAKING THE OPENER UNIT DOWN AFTER DISCONECTING IT FROM THE TRACK AND OPENING IT UP. YOU WILL SEE THE DRIVE SHAFT AND GEARS. YOU'LL HAVE TO TAKE OUT THE PARTS DAMAGED AND GET NEW ONES FROM THE MANUFACTURE. I HOPE THIS HELPS EWE OUT,MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND GOODBYE.

Linear garage door opens and closes when close to unit about 10 '


when the door stops moving when going down, pull the emergency release handle on the door and then push the door closed by hand. Once it's closed push the emergency handle back so it engages the chain. Open the door and close it a few times to make sure it closes all the way with the motor.

My Lift Master garage door will not close. It makes the closing noise but the door does not slide down. Whcan I talk to to fix this?


Sounds like you have a chain drive garage door opener and you hear a humming sound when you push the wall console. The motor is running but the chain does not move. You need to replace the gear & sprocket assembly.

Have a Craftsman 1/2 HP Garage Door Opener, been working fine. Now when you start it you hear the motor running as normal but the chain doesnt move?


You must ensure the drive chain is engaged to the door puller.
Sometimes the emergency release if pulled (red cord) the drive and the coupling come separated.
Make sure the pin is back in place (pull release cord and make sure pin springs back in).
The run an open close cycle, it should pick up the drive again.

If the main light flashes 10 times and the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the lights on the sensors are both on and not flickering. Tweak them if necessary. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have bad sensors or the wiring to them.

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.

Sounds like the drive gear is stripped. Remove the cover and take a look. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor.

Sears Craftsman Garage door opener does not open or close


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.

Craftsman opener motor works, but chain does not move.


If the motor is working but the chain does not move you must remove the cover on the motor and check to see that the chain is on the sprocket. If the chain is on the sprocket and the sprocket is not moving but the motor shaft is moving then the sprocket must be retightened onto the motor shaft.

Garage door opener motor runs, but the chain drive doesnt turn


If the chain is not moving and the motor is – you need a gear kit.

Unplug the unit - take of the cover – you will find white shavings inside – these confirm the diagnosis. .

Get the gear AND sprocket kit.

It’s a good DIY project but you MUST VERY CAREFULLY Follow the instructions step by step.

HOPE THIS HELPS
