My craftsman garage door opener #139.53991 no longer opens. When I hit the button the unit makes a quick jerk then stops and the light blinks on/off 10 times.

Any ideas what the issue could be? I've cleared and aligned the safety sensors. Not sure what else to try.

Thanks for contacting

. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your garage door opener not working. We are here to help. Based on the symptom, I suspect a broken door spring. To verify that is the problem, release the door. Next, push the wall control or remote button. If the trolley moves properly without the door, the door spring is out of adjustment or broken. Also, the led blinking 10 times indicates the motor is stuck. Now, if the trolley will not move with the door released , unplug the opener and remove the cover. Next, check the plastic gears inside the opener. I hope this helps.
