Craftman Garage Door opener problem!
I have an older craftsman door opener and the opener hit something on its way down and it proceeded to do what it was designed to do and it went back up. However, now the door will not shut, the green light on the back flashes 5 times indicating an overheated motor. I took the cover off the opener and could see nothing jammed or worn. I rotated the worm drive motor so that it was heading down with no resistance at all. Once down a little ways, I plugged the opener back in and tried to operate, the door actually worked to head back up and then once all the way up I received the same 5 flash code and it will not go back down.
