Garage door opener- remote only works if held very close (2 inches ) from motor/antenna area.

I recently had an issue where the chain/cable of my garage door opener - Craftsman model 139.53513 - got caught on the rail and causing the opener to stop. Upon releasing the cable from the rail, i heard a "pop" come from the motor. Since then when using the remote, the opener will only operate if the remote is held within a very short distance ( two inches or so ) of the motor/antenna area. I'm looking to understand what it will take to fix this issue.

Thanks, Jon
