Are two remotes and wireless keypad included in the price listed or do I have to buy separately? When I went to purchase this opener on your website remotes and key pad came up as accessories I could purchase separately.
Asked by: Bob
Yes, they are included with the unit. If missing you need to contact Home Depot.

can led lights be used instead of the incandesent bulbs

Asked by: bruttus
Yes, LED light bulbs can be used, depending on the manufacturer. Some LED light models give off RF interference that blocks the garage opener remote from working because they are literally inches from the antenna - especially older or cheaper bulbs. We have used the IKEA and the Phillips/SamsClub models with no problems. But I have "fixed" friend's garage openers by removing their bad bulbs and swapping back to incandescent/CFL or better LED's.

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

Asked by: Alpnglo
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.

I have an existing Genie garage door opener in place and looking to upgrade. Would I be able to reuse the railing I already have in place?
Asked by: Frankie
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.

My only complaint is that it says it’s has WiFi, but you have to buy something else to actually use the WiFi. I don’t think that is right forcing someone to buy something else to use a feature that you are promoting.
