Is the opener plugged into a good outlet? Are you running on battery backup by chance? Did you install the battery? This unit needs the battery installed even if it is getting 110V power to have the max lift force. As others have said make sure your door is balanced properly. Your old opener may have failed because of an improperly balanced door.

Excellent Garage Door Opener but Issues with App
Very impressed with the quality of the opener especially the online tutorial directions. That being said spent over an hour troubleshooting connecting my Iphone to wifi enabled garage door opener and called the help center and spent another half hour troubleshooting with the rep but to no avail. Will have to follow up at another time when i’m less frustrated.

Straight forward install
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.
