Craftsman Garage Door Opener

rmh2394May 26, 2008

I recently had to change the gears in my Sears GDO because the original gear was stripped to a pile of dust. It worked fine for about 6 weeks when it started acting up again. When I pulled the cover off, the new gear was already stripping just like the original one which took at least 7 years to strip. Any thoughts?? I first thought of the springs, but the door does not seem to be too hard to lift as if the springs were weakening....

Did you grease the new gear with the lubricant included with the gears? This is an important step.
