If either part has loose wires, frayed cables, worn screws, debris buildup, etc., then this should be addressed as soon as possible in order to determine if it contributes to any potential malfunctioning components. Also inspect any third-party devices that you use in conjunction with your LiftMaster (e.g., lighting fixtures) as they could be contributing factors as well.

Q4: What Are the Possible Causes of a Liftmaster Error Code 41?
Error Code 41, also known as a Motor Lock Error, is seen on Liftmaster/Chamberlain garage door openers as well as other brands. When this code appears, it means that the motor has become blocked and needs to be reset.
The most common cause of this error code is when the moving parts in the drive mechanism become out of sync due to wear and tear or excessive force being applied. This can result in parts of the mechanism becoming blocked or mismatched with each other, ultimately leading to an inability for the motor to move.
Other possible causes could be due to poor lubrication, a worn out gear rack, defective limit switch contacts or even debris lodged into components within the garage door opener itself. It should be noted, however, that if this is not done correctly then it can short circuit wires and damage components, so if you are not confident please seek help from an experienced professional.
Last but not least, always ensure that all cables are attached properly before attempting to use your garage door opener once again; if all above fails then might be time for a replacement part!
