Regarding the LED bulb issue... I put LED bulbs in my genie opener and immediately lost signal to my wall remote. Additionally, my three car remotes became hit or miss. I put the normal lights back in and everything works fine. I would stray from the LED's due to signal issues.

Is it normal for the door to pick up speed the last two feet and almost slam down?

Asked by Alpnglo August 8, 2018
8
Answers

No. That's not normal. I would disconnect the opener (from the disconnect mechanism) and try to lift and lower the door by hand. If you're able to lift and lower it smoothly all the way without the sudden pull you're describing at the end of the travel, then you likely have a defective door opener. If you feel a shift in the door load near the end when closing it manually, you may have mis-adjusted springs or a bad spring on your door which will cause a load imbalance and can damage the opener. If that's the case, you should get those checked by a garage door tech. There's a guy in our area that replaces the springs for about $100 for one and $170 to do both. Given how dangerous it is to do yourself, it's a good deal.

JWill, Yes the remote keypad will do exactly what you are asking. Just hit enter and the garage door will close without opening until the code is entered or the button is depressed on the keyfob or wall switch.

If your track is smooth with no binding point in door motion the HP is not a factor in that the the springs make the door balanced. (you can open a very heavy door by hand ). If there are 'binding points' the higher HP will power through these with less, or no, 'Jerking' .

do you provide installation i wanna buy the unit and need someone to install it please let me know id like to do it right awa

Asked by installationneeded November 5, 2019

Answers

Hello "installationneeded"; The folks at home depot sent me this request for a little (technical) assistance - but I think they're a little confused. For your information - I did my own installation of a very similar garage door unit - and it took me about 1-1/2 complete days to assemble and install this unit (over a weekend) and included a trip back to the Home Depot to get some stuff that didn't fit in the Chamberlain garage door opener box (4@ 10' lengths of 1/2" conduit) to support & protect the wires to the included safety photo-eyes. The kit comes with instructions and you can do this yourself and save some $$ on installation if you're so inclined* In your shoes, I'd walk over to the contractor's desk, and ask if they have the name of an experienced garage-door-installer for the unit and negotiate installation time and cost, and take it from there. Otherwise - ask one of your (older) neighbors, where you live, if they know the name of a handyman who already works in the neighborhood and call them. While the Home Depot usually keeps names of a few installers for this kind of thing... I've never used them anymore based on my not-very-good experience with another Home-Depot-recommended plumbing-service based installer (who, at the time, wanted to gut my kitchen and rebuild it later - to install a dishwasher and have me pay for their incompetence) after I kicked them out of my house...I found I could do the work myself, quickly and at my convenience, and have it be done well just based on needing to meet my expectations for a durable 20+ year life-expectancy system. So good luck.

Amazon Echo

Asked by Jason August 25, 2016

Answers

Hi Jason. I have the Amazon Echo and the Wink Home Automation Hub so I can relay my experience. The Chamberlain integrates seamlessly withe the Wink control hub so it can be controlled via Wink. Amazon Echo also integrates with the Wink controller, so you would think that once the Chamberlain controller is integrated to the Wink hub, you could control it via Amazon Echo through Wink... not the case. For security reasons, Wink blocks the Chamberlain controls from Alexa (doesn't expose the garage door to her as an automated device). There is a lot of discussion online about the reasons why it's not a good idea to have Alexa opening your garage door. The most obvious being that Alexa (amazon Echo) uses speech recognition technology... not voice recognition. That means she is designed to understand verbal commands from anyone, not just you. So if someone wanted to, they could sneak up to your main door and yell "Alexa... open the garage door" when you weren't home and Alexa would respond and open the door. She can't tell that the command didn't come from you. Even the Wink hub / app, while it will allow you to control the garage door via the Wink app, you can't automate the door via Wink. It won't allow you to schedule automatic open or close via the Wink hub for security and safety reasons.

Customer review from Chamberlain-DIY.com logo
Purchased to replace my old garage opener. Install went well. Programing of key pad was easy, programing Home link was easy. But when I added my Harley Davison garage opener to the B970 as an additional switch, it will not open the door like it did on the old garage door motor.

A good product, replacing the 15 yr-old screw drive Genie that I had. The belt drive is very quiet. The programmed soft start/stop limit feature is impressive. The included wireless keypad is nice feature. The online installation video was very handy. It would have been more difficult using the printed instructions only. One of the remotes was not working but was easily reprogrammed using the control panel. I synched the remote on my 8 yr-old Audi very quickly. Strangely, neither the written instructions nor the video made mention of the now mandatory backup battery.

Must pay particular attention to the placement of the safety sensors as one is a receiver and the other is a transmitter. The receiver is particularly susceptible to sunlight interference and you must install the receiver to minimize direct sunlight. For example, my garage faces west, so my sensors face north and south, respectively. Having the receiver facing south is the worst possible configuration and as a result, I was experiencing significant false alarms, which meant that the garage door would not close due to the sensor's perception of garage door obstruction, when in fact sunlight interference caused the false alarm. So, I placed the receiver in a northern exposure AND I also ordered the sun shield that prevents sunlight interference. Haven't had a single problem since. NOTE: the receiver uses a green LED to indicate proper reception of the IR signal from the transmitter, which uses an amber LED indicator. Please see the photo below of my sun shield installed over my receiver. In addition, this unit incorporates myQ, which is a must-have for those of us who have driven off forgetting to close the garage door. The myQ app on your smart phone communicates with the opener via your home-based Wi-Fi so that you can operate the garage door from anywhere saving yourself a trip back home. In general, this is a very smart system, which helps you to troubleshoot issues. For example, my garage was pre-wired for a garage door opener and associated sensors, but one or more staples had pierced the internal wiring, which created an intermittent connection. The "brain" detected this intermittent connection and reported the problem to the LCD screen on the wall-mounted control; so, I used the wiring that came with the unit to bypass the flawed internal wiring.

Easy to install, I replaced an existing unit that failed. I took my time and followed all the steps. I have installed a couple openers. Be very careful with springs/tensioners. The belt tension setting was a little confusing, but if you follow the instructions it works fine. The battery backup feature is nice if you sometimes lose power. I was specifically looking for that feature. The unit is extremely quiet, which I think is due in part to the belt-drive. I am able to monitor it remotely in case someone forgets to put the door down. You can program the app to notify you if the door is left open for a certain/specified amount of time. You do not need to use the app to operate the opener. This product is a little more expensive than the basic models, but I thought the price was very fair considering all the features. One nice benefit is they also give you an outside keypad. It came with all necessary hardware but you might need some angle if installing this in new construction.
