The drive gear has shredded and I need a new one. It is a 1991 Chamberlain 1/2 HP Heavy Duty Model 5000. I cannot find the manual to explain what the part is to replace it.

When i change my drive belt it gets shreded on start up


Sounds like either the belt is not tight or more likely your door balance is heavy ie fatigued/broken springs or its hung up somewhere.

Hi. My garage door opener is having a problem closing. It goes about 1/2 way down then reverses to the open position. Its a chamberlain 1/2 hp heavy duty. Any suggestions?


Hi swilson.... on the motor you will find adjustment screws. One to adjust the up setting and one the down. Also one for the pressure setting. Usually when the door is behaving as yours is the pressure setting needs to be tightened a bit so that it does not reverse direction with the tiniest bit of resistence. Make small adjustments so that you do not end up with a door that is a safety hazard in that it will not reverse when it hits an obstacle. Joe

Chain on garage door not moving but motor is running. Model 1255SCR 1/2 HP.


This means that the nylon drive gear in your unit has been stripped. This can be replaced and is common in openers. You can get a replacement at chamberlain.com. It does take moderate skill to do and should take about an hour to complete. You can order the gear by itself or the whole drive shaft. Make sure and set the limits per the manual and do a 2x4 safety reversal test afterward. Thanks BB

Have broken the drive gear twice Chamberlain garage door opener


There are two main reasons for the drive gear to strip the teeth. The first and most often cause is a heavy door. With a door opener we never lift the door manually so we don't know how heavy it is getting when it needs maintenance. The second cause is what may be your problem and that is lack of lubricant. In the gear kit there is a tube of grease that should be used on the gear. You just can't use too much. You may need new door springs.

Chamberlain 1/2 hp heavy duty garage door opener stops working until you tap hard on the back of the box to get it going again. Not even the tapping will get it started now.


I have three of these openers and all have failed after several years use from the plastic drive gear wearing out, so without seeing your unit, that's what I would guess. The gear is relatively easy to replace and I bought parts from a company called "gatehouse" (www.gatehousesupplies.com). I've only used them once, but I am pleased with the service. Good luck.

Liftmaster 1/2hp problem with shredding gear shift really fast


DOES THE DOOR WORK SMOOTHLY AND EASILY MANUALLY??
IF NOT THAT WILL CHEW UP YOUR GEARS.
IF THE DOOR WORKS WELL MANUALLY I AM GUESSING YOU ONLY REPLACED THE EASY GEAR.
YOU NEED TO REPLACE *BOTH* GEARS - FOLLOW THE INSTUCTIONS COMPLETELY. THE SECOND ONE IS HARD TO CHANGE BUT IF YOU DON'T THE ROUGH SURFACE OF THE HARDER WORN GEAR WILL CHEW AT THE NEW GEAR AND ..... WELL YOU HAVE SEEN THE RESULTS.
HOPE THIS HELPS
