My Genie Screw Drive Garage Opener will not engage

Has anyone had the problem where the garage door opener motor runs but nothing happens? The screw drive does not move, and I'm at a lost as to what might be wrong. Thanks for your help!

I'd open the casing around the drive motor. I'd expect to find worn out plastic (neoprene) gears.
At least, that's what I find when my Sears GDO has the same symptoms.
