Even high quality garage door opener drive gears can wear out over time. Some gears are made from softer materials, such as nylon, and are prone to having broken teeth and stripped gears; whereas others are made from harder metals which can break from repeat stress. Regardless of the cause of the break, it's important to address the worn gears with proper repair and replacement.
