I would say that the door might have been frozen when you tried to open it 
when it was cold.  A gear may have broken or stripped out (or maybe just 
few teeth off of a gear.)  The reason that it worked once more might have 
been that the door was stopped in a place where the gear could get a bite 
few times, but now it's worn completely out.

I would disconnect the door and see if the opener works without it on it.

[Shop-talk] Garage door opener problem

The Craftsman (1/2 hp) garage door opener in my garage is suddenly not 
working. It makes clicking noises but the chain doesn't move. I don't know 
if weather has anything to do with it but it started a couple of days ago 
when we experienced snow and the temperature has not risen beyond 50 F. 
While this unusual for Houston I am sure that the Sears did not make it 
with warm weather in mind. The opener did work one day when the 
temperatures had risen and the sun was out. The garage is detached and not 
Please let me know how I can troubleshoot this problem.
