Craftsman 1/2 HP Garage Door Opener

Our Garage door opener is about 10 years old. We went to close the garage the other day and it didn't work. It hummed a little but nothing moved. We disconnected the door and still the opener only hums a bit and nothing. Do you think the motor is burned out? Is it something we should try to fix?

Is the trolley (the thing the door is connected to) jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit? If so you can remove that bolt and then run the opener until the door is closed. While it is closed adjust the 'up limit' a couple turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover? That control is on the side of the unit. Be sure to replace the bolt.
