Thanks - I've done everything on that list, including tightening the chain (it had some slack in it causing it to droop). The Torsion spring is only about five years old...little by little I've replaced everything (including the garage door) over the years, with the exception of just completely replacing the door opener. So maybe it's just time. I'll probably wait and see what happens when the weather warms up before I decide to replace it. I'll probably continue to use it until it just completely fails.

The only other thing I can think of is an rpm sensor, if it dosn't read movement at the motor it will shut off the power.

I struggled with exact same issue with my Genie door opener. It went on for about one year. I would call them and make a minor adjustment or two based on their input. It would work for a month then start this nonsense all over again. I finally called them and said I have done everything you've told me to do the opener is bad. They sent me a new mother board and instructions. I installed it in about 30 minutes and have not had an issue since.
