Garage door opener - new motor?

I have a craftsman 139.55918 that i assumed had a faulty travel module from my research. When I went to replace it I found out that plastic pieces of the gear that connected to the module from the motor had snapped off. I am having a really difficult time locating parts and the sears website for the craftsman garage door opener says they no longer carry any parts for the model. The motor part is 41D1624-1, and could get it on eBay for around $50. Should I hunt for the gear piece that snapped off or should I just go ahead and replace the entire motor. Thanks!

If you can locate the gear piece that snapped, that would be cheaper. Assuming the current motor is in operating condition. But you seemed to indicated that the gears are hard to find so you not have a choice but to buy the motor.
But you might consider putting that $50 towards a new opener.

Have you tried other web sites for parts: https://www.garagedoorsupplyco.com/G...its_c_156.html

Thanks, I saw that website but I don’t think I see the part I’m looking for. The garage door opener is only 3 years old.

Try calling Chamberlain, they manufactured the opener and branded it for craftsman. Most Liftmaster/ Chamberlain motors have a life time warranty, some have a 5 Year. I believe it is stated in the manual that came with opener.

I have contacted chamberlain through their website. I have the manual, but it doesn’t state warranty timeline of any sort. Just to contact sears if there needs to be any repairs.

go to the Sears Parts site and search your model number.
Then you will be able to download the manual which gives the warranty.

Looks like it is
90 days on parts and labour
3 years on parts only entire opener
10 years on the motor part

The travel module was part number 114A7114-7 and was superseded to 41A7114-7 which was then superseded to 041D807-4. The new part is universal and fits many units.

It's approx $25 while it and the motor are closer to $125.
