Garage Door Opener Won't Engage
I have a 13 year old Sears Craftsman garage door opener and when I try to get it to lift all I get is this kind of grinding noise. Needless to say the door doesn't raise as well. It sounds like something is not catching and is more or less spinning around in there.
I also saw bits of what looked like either dust, or sawdust sort of spewing out the side of the machine. Maybe just vibration causing dust to fly? Who knows. But was wondering if this is something I can fix myself. I'm fairly handy at jobs such as this.
I don't have the manual and was trying to find it online to no avail.
Any advice or help would be most appreciated.
