Sears 1/2HP Garage door opener

Garage door stopped working. The green led flashed 5 times at a time. When pressing any of the openers you hear a clicking noise. The light on the opener does not come on either. It does have 120 going to the terminal on in the opener.

Thanks,
Randy

Is the door stuck in the open position?

It stopped halfway while opening. I have disengaged it so the door can be opened manually. It does not move in either direction. The trolley is in the middle of the rail.

Thanks,
Randy

Take off the cover and check the drive gear. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. It sounds like something is jammed somewhere or the gear is stripped. The opener will not normally go down until it has opened fully and satisfied the logic board. Something is keeping it from doing this.
