Answer: 
I upgraded from the 1/3 hp to 1/2 hp and there were no issues with the change drive compatibility, so assuming you have a chain drive, it will most likely work. The wiring is easier in the newer version, as there are pressure fittings rather than screws. Good luck!

Answer: 
You probably can use the same track however I recommended installing the new one. It's not that difficult especially since you already have your placement scoped out from the old one. I'm not sure if your remote will still work. If it's a compatible universal it's very easy to program. Also inexpensive remotes are available if you need extra ones.

Unfortunately no. The 1/2 hp opener track is square in cross section and the transmitter frequencies are different than 22 yr old openers.

Home depot installers get about 100-200 bucks to install this one; so I did it myself for zero (6-8 hours).

You'll need help lifting it up and fastening it to the garage rafters although it only weighs about 40 pounds. The included instructions are very clear. I added a pushbutton in the house and garage so I can open it without looking for the remote. There is some You Tube video that will give you a good working knowledge of what you will need.
Just search You Tube for Chamberlain garage door opener installation. Good luck, take your time.

Depending on the height of your garage door, this operator should be all you need to automate your garage door. The operator works on doors that are up to 7' in height. Extension kits are available for 8' and 10' high doors. Depending on your specific installation there maybe other materials you need. If you are unsure, you can stop at your local Home Depot and ask anyone in the Millwork department. This Read More

Hello Rose, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.
This product is intended to be installed by Do-It-Yourself homeowners. However, what comes in the box will NOT be all that you need to complete the project. Besides a variety of common household tools, there are a few other things you will need. Because garage construction techniques and materials vary widely, these items cannot be included in the product packaging. For example, motor and track mounts may require 2x4 blocking, masonry screws and or angle brackets. Door reinforcement brackets are needed, but only for lightweight doors.
While definitely a DIY friendly project, I recommend that you read through the installation manual linked here to get a feel for the process:

Answer: 
You definitely need to replace your lifting springs. The unit doesn't include new ones. The springs are necessary to support the motor's efforts in opening and closing the door. Also if you have to open the door manually at any time you'll find it very difficult without the aid of your springs.

Tommy,
You will need to replace the broken springs in order to properly balance the door. Most newer springs are color coded at the factory (with a blast of spray paint) which tells you which ones to buy when replacing them. Operating the door without proper spring balance will overwork the opener and will result in prompt failure of the opener. It can also allow the door to crash to the ground which

It can also allow the door to crash to the ground which will damage the door even if there's no operator installed. Make sure to safety cable your new springs when you replace them. Might try Youtube for instruction on new spring installation. Its easy to do.

My 1/2 hp unit operates my 16 ft door without any problem. My door is an aluminum non-insulated door, so its pretty light weight. Just the same, it would operate a fully insulated door if the springs are properly balanced. You shuold be fine with the 1/2 hp.

Yes, I believe it will. The only thing I would have any doubt about is iff the door obstruction beams will be powerful enough to shoot across the 16 foot doorway width. As, for the motor and track assembly it should work fine for an aluminum door. I might be too much foor a wooden door but I can see no problem.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 163 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, but kit is missing parts Opener itself is great and I love the convenience of it, however the kit doesn't actually include the parts to mount the device to the ceiling! Be sure to open the box in the parking lot, swipe the manual, and head back inside for the steel plate and bolts/nuts you'll need to actually put the thing on the roof! ;) Other than the missing parts, the opener is really very simple to install and operate. My house was pre-wired for an opener, so no wires to fish, and everything went exactly as described in the instructions (which is a rare delight). It has two little knobs on the side to adjust how far up/down it goes, and lots of clever safety features to keep from accidentally crushing Fluffy. A great deal for the price. December 10, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by As advertised! Generally good. With only one remote is a big setback. Should all models come with a standard of two remotes! March 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product that is easy to install! This was a replacement for an older 1/3 hp model. The new model installed seamlessly and took under an hour. Excellent product, value priced. Photo shows back panel of old model with screws, which have been replaced in the new model with pressure fittings that are much easier to work with. January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by really happy with this opener I am not one to buy the cheapest anything. I was very suspect of this garage door opener and how loud it would be. But,,,,, I needed to replace an existing door opener that had died. It wasn't in the budget and I straggled with waiting or buying cheep. After a rain storm and me getting wet closing the Garage I decided cheep was the way. The opener was easy to assemble and took about 2.5 hours. iI works really well and the nose is much quieter than the old beast it replaced.. for the price I am extremely happy. I personally am so excited the I saved money and it is really a good machine. Usually when i buy cheep I regret it. Not this time! June 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good choice THis is a good garage door opener. It was fairly easy to instal. I will say that if your garage does not have a pre existing opener then you will need a couple more brackets as it doesn't come with enough for a new instal. I have seen a few reviews that states that it is loud and I do n not think it is that loud once I cloes the door going into the house I barely here it. I have heard some that are twice as loud and cost twice as much. In any case this is a good product. I would recomend to anyone. Again not to hard to instal once you have the right brackets. Took just a few hours. I would recommend to have someone help if it is a new instal. October 22, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Instructions were horrible I got this garage door opener to replace mine that had stopped working because the gears inside the motor stripped out. It was very inexpensive and had a newer look to it than my old one. The instructions for it however were horrible. Very difficult to follow and hook up the wiring. Luckily I had marked my wiring beforehand and was very easy to install the entire opener. Got on that was almost an exact match as far as hookup as my old opener. They need to use screws to hook up the wiring though instead of the little push clamps this one uses. That is what took me the longest to hook up because like I said instructions were horrible. April 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase Replaced an existing unit so installation was very easy. Directions are fairly clear. Rail snaps together but is very stout once together. I was not planning on buying this particular package as the description here on the web page didn't show that it had optical safety sensor. At the store I looked at the box and it did have the safety sensors. We have a bigger than normal one bay door. It is also solid wood so quite heavy. The opener has no trouble at all opening and closing. It was easy to adjust the open/close travel. It has been working great for about two months. Hoping it continues to work well.... May 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good opener I replaced a 13 year old 1/2 horsepower Craftsman. This appears to be built nearly identically. I reused all the wiring, the track and sensors. It took about 1 hour to mount and adjust. It runs great so far and has a good range for the remote. It is not silent, but it is quiter than the old one. It adapted to the old openers buttons and everything. Unless it is necessary I would not attempt to replace all the parts. The wiring was simple. I taped mine together from my old unit and reinstalled them in the slots in the back of the new unit. The old wiring was 1 2 3 this was color coded, but all the wires go in the same order.
