Look on top of your door opener. I suspect your chain jumped off the gear on top of your door opener.

Let us know if this hit your problem.

There is a small lever (usually with a cord ahnging from it) along the guide in which the chain or screw runs. It's an emergency release which detaches the door from the chain. Make sure the lever is up. Run the opener in the open direction, and it should click into place.

cleaningbug, Your going to have one or the other, a very long chain running from the garage door to the garage door opener or a very long screw running from the garage door to the garage door opener. Have someone push the button while you look up to see if either a long chain or long screw is moving. If so, your problem is with what abnormal described. If not your problem is with what Wg described.
