Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sara32999 Sensors PERFECT and Cheaper than a whole new Gargage Door Opener
Thought we needed entirely new garage door opener. Were having to hold down wall button until door was completely open/closed AND wireless opener mounted outside would only open the door, but not close it. Friend suggested spending right at $40 for new sensors first before replacing entire garage door opener system; said that could be problem even though the sensor lights were on like they were supposed to be. It worked! That's all we needed. Everything works now the same as when new. Saved a chunk of money, too!!!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by pad55 Check the manufacture date on your GDO!
Be careful when ordering these replacement sensors, as the package labeling mentions that they are only applicable under the following conditions:
1) GDO must have been manufactured after 1997
2) The PROGRAM button on the GDO should be Purple, Orange, or Red in color with a Yellow indicator light
3) Original sensors should have one green and one yellow light
Since the Home Depot's product description on the web for these parts is limited, check your original GDO to be sure your are getting the correct replacement parts.

Package advises that this product ifs for Chamberlain openers 1997 or newer. Mine is August 1994 but I took a gamble and bought this anyways. Works like a charm.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by BrianP Fixed the problem I bought it for
I own a chamberlain/Liftmaster residential garage door opener with a date of manufacture in 1996. The packaging of this item says it's only compatible with models made after 1997 but the manager at Home Depot (and the help posts here on the website) said it would probably still work and that I could bring the package back, opened for a full refund if it did not work.
The good: It worked perfectly and fixed the problem. My garage door used to lower 1 foot and then go back up with the light flashing (indicating a sensor blockage.) It no longer does that. My old sensors were broken.
The bad: I have no idea how, according to the instructions, Chamberlain expected me to mount the brackets for these sensors. The brackets are supposed to clip to the garage door rail but I could not get them to fit (and I have a new rail, installed this year!) I'm sure I was just doing it wrong but the instructions were not clear on exactly how to get them to snap into place.
The good: The old brackets from the old sensors held these new sensors. I had to mount them with the indicator lights facing the wall but that's not a big deal. Aligning the senors on the old brackets was easy. Also, these new brackets came with wire splicers so I didn't have to splice wires by hand and tape off with electrical tape.
