Broken Garage Door Opener

Sears Opener # 139.664983

This opener sounds normal when operated, but nothing moves. The chain and door don't move. I assume the internal gears are broke and it's time for a new opener, just double checking before buying the new opener.

Thanks,

Sherm

I would get up on a ladder, in a safe area, and watch the opener drive. May be a sheared drive key in the gear. Look to see if the shaft is turning. If you can get the cover off you may see something else that is an easy fix. If not, your still going to change it so no harm done. Good luck.
