Does this look familiar?

Where do you get parts for Chamberlain? I called Sears, they've never heard of my model 6200C (assume C stands for Canada). By the way, I live in Burlington and work near 427/QEW so anywhere in between is fine.
Deja Vu for me.

When this originally happened, the opener motor kept trying to open the door and kept running till the safety turned it off. No damage to the motor though :)

Check the Yellow Pages for a Chamberlain dealer.
The chain drive Chamberlains are identical to Sears openers but of course, the model numbers are different.

When you are done replacing the gears, you will have to adjust the limits on the opener again.

MAKE SURE YOU SPRAY WHITE LITHIUM GREASE on the gears once you have the opener re-installed, and remember to do a respray each year.

Unfortunatley, that picture looks all too familiar. I would also check to see how much force it takes to lift the garage door when it is free of the garage door opener. The springs should be doing most of the lifting.

Home Depot also sells Chamberlain.
