Most common issue with the liftmaster/sears opener is the gears get stripped.
unplug it. Take the cover off and beware of the white powder falling in your face. They makes kits for all the different version of opener with all the parts and instruction to replace the gears. If you have any mechanical skills this can be done by a homeowner.
A worn out gear



One version of the repair kit.

I like taking things apart too, it's the putting back together that stumps me sometimes. Thank goodness for cameras on phones.

That is my greatest enemy as well, 99% of the time it's always operator error, whether it be with a plastic cup holding screws or a computer. (<-- Intentional change on a classic quote)
