Breaker for Garage Door Opener keeps Flipping

Good morning!

I installed a new garage door opener last year (same brand and HP as the old one). Since I have installed, the breaker for the opener keeps flipping. I would say it happens twice a week.
So, I have to flip the breaker back to "On", and it works without fail for another 4-5 days.

What can I do to troubleshoot this problem or fix it?
We are listing our house on Monday and I would love to have this problem fixed.

Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Thank you!

Is this a standard breaker, or does the breaker have a "test" button on it?

Is there anything else on that circuit that could be tripping it?

Have you made any changes to the circuit in question?

Is the door moving freely when disconnected from the opener?check to be sure it isn't binding somewhere.
