Have you tried the manufacturers site at either craftsman or sears. You should be able to find it there. You will need your model #.

When mine did this, it was because the nylon gears that drive the chain had stripped. My wife had to live without the opener for a week or more, but I was able to find a new gear kit online and replace the damaged gears. It wasn't difficult.
The other option is to buy a new opener.

Hello,Linda well this is your lucky day ,I have installed garage door openers for sears for 10 years and i can tell you that craftsman,chamberlain ,and liftmaster are all the same machine and manufactured under the liftmaster name , if you buy it from home depot it will be a chamberlain ,if you buy it at sears ,it will be a craftsman, and if you go to commercial building supplier it will be a liftmaster! now getting that out of the way even though they are all compatible ,there is one thing that stands in their way and that,s time ,For example if your chamberlain machine is 5 years old and you went to sears last week ,the chances of the frequency being the same are not good , most likely you have the wireless keypad , one way to test the sears keypad against the chamberlain machine is to locate the smart button on your machine ,this button allows for programming of remotes and keypads , to test and see exactly what im talking about take your remote and locate the smart button ,if you have three buttons on the remote press one of the buttons that are not being used on the remote ,above the smart button their will be a blinking light ,if you press your remote button you will notice the light go from a blink to a rapid flash , This is telling you that you are sending a signal for programming to the machine , well the keypad is exactly the same all you have to do is push the enter button on the keypad and have someone watch for the rapid blinking light ,if they are compatible the light will blink rapidly on the machine so all you have to do now is have someone press the smart button once on the machine your indicator light will now be a solid light you will have approx 60 seconds then to put a 4 digit code in the keypad and then press and hold down the enter button on the keypad , at this point you will notice the lightbulbs on the chamberlain machine to shut off and come back on this is to tell you that the machine accepted the code , after thats been done you can use your keypad , you can also find the owners manual to the chamberlain and follow the same instructions to programming the remote , they are identical in programing , if your keypad is not the same frequency you can also tell by looking at the frequency code on the backside of the keypad and also the chamberlain unit usually where the light bulb is will be its code

simple , i was a sears installer for 10 years installing garage door openers so your in luck , just locate the smart button on the machine ,it would be on the back or if your looking from the back at the back ,it could also be on the right side depending on if the machine is a sideways mounted machine or frontmount, after locating this button which maybe green/orange /or purple in color also depending on your model ,the newest sears machines are purple buttons ,and 5 years ago they were orange and the older ones would be green ,...ok so after you,ve located it just push it once and you will see a solid yellow indicator light come on , now go over to the keypad and put your 4 digit personal code in after that press the enter button AND HOLD IT for around 3 seconds , at that time you will see the lightbulbs on the machine go off and then click back on , and THAT,S IT! plain and simple , now go proramm your remote! hope i was of help to you , and if i was leave me a nice rating Sincerely Glenn mayer
