Customer Questions & Answers

Will these sensors work on a Sears door opener

Asked by: Ty54
Hello Ty54 - These are safety sensor covers and they will work with Sears openers. If you are lookin for safety sensors, Search: chamberlain safety sensors, these safety sensors will work on a Sears Craftsman unit that is manufactured after 1997. If your current Sears opener has a sensor with a green light and one with an amber light, these will work as a replacement.

GARAGE DOOR OPENER SAFETY SENSOR COVER - Does it come as a set (of 2) or only one?

It would stand to reason that this item somes as a set of 2, but it is not clear from the advertisement whether this is the case. Please clarify. Thanks
Asked by: Bill
Yes there are 2 covers in the box. I agree the description is confusing. I also thought I was only going to get 1 and that's all I really needed, but 2 came in the box.

My current Marantec garage door opener has 'cheap' sensors, and for the past 10 years I've had issues with the sunlight 'interrupting' the beam from the sensors throughout the fall, and winter months. No matter how many times I've tried to adjust them - the sun keeps the garage door opener from closing thus I need to do it manually, and then re-engage the chain/door. I'm looking at replacing my garage door opener with a Chamberlain product, and was wondering will this cover reduce the amount of sunlight that may interrupt the sensor beam?
Asked by: Freddy
Hello Freddy, and thank you for your question. This cover may provide some shading to prevent the effects of direct sunlight on the sensors, but its primary function is to protect against misalignment due to bumping the sensors themselves.

chamberlain garage door sensor failed

Door will not open or close. No light on green side , amber side fine. Realigned and still no green light. Measured voltage going to green light got 6.4. VDC across wires. What should the resistance (ohms) read when I disconnect green sensor and read Ohms? I get infinite open. Could it be just the LED bulb broken? Can this be repaired, do I need to relace both green and yellow sensors? Thank you in advance.

Customer Reviews

Garage Door Opener Safety Sensor Cover is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good protection Have you ever come home at night to a non-working garage door? Not fun. If you hire others to do work for you (in my case, a neighborhood high schooler mows my lawn), it is prudent to buy and install this product, which covers the safety sensors so they are less likely to be knocked out of alignment. However, be advised that this attaches to the wall, not to the garage door tracks. Accordingly, in a modern home, you are likely to have to drill into concrete and place anchors to secure these covers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It lives up to its name I would have given this product 5 stars had it not been for the modifications i had to do to it to get it to fit 100%. I did have to trim a few edges to get them straight due to the location of my sensors. I thought about moving the sensors up to get a better fit, but then they are mounted on plates that are attached to the rail, and moving them any higher would defeat the purpose. Would be nice if there were break-away tabs to get a better fitment, but it would be impossible to be able to forsee every possible install situation. Anyway, a pair of shears will be needed if you need to cut them or even a dremel tool, so you need to have some mechanical know how to get these attached and fitted 100% Once on though, they do their job! It solved my problem with the garbage cans and garden hose hitting the sensors. Also, they do look nice and i suppose you could paint them if necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There are two! There is nothing I saw in the write up that there were 2 sensor covers, and based on the price I assumed there was only one. Pleasant surprise and will be returning the extra one. While the sensors are a necessary evil, they are a pain if your garage space is tight (mine is), and people keep on knocking into them and setting off the alignment. These covers fit the bill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good idea, but it didn't fit I had to return the product because it didn't fit my garage installation. It was a good idea, but it would have been better if it had fit my particular installation. Also, metal would have been a better material than plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Modified it slightly to fit a different brand sensor. Stopped the non opening problem .
