Questions & Answers

If it says it fits a 7 foot garage door, which direction, height or width, are they referring to?

Asked by: SH
My garage door is 8 ft. tall and 16 ft. wide. My previous opener was a 1/3 HP so we knew we would be OK with a 1/2 HP. Our door is really large as we have an over sized 2 car garage and the Chamberlain opener has been working really well with the exception of a few minor problems with the safety sensors.

Installation fees

Asked by: Jerry
Had two installed today. $85.00 per door opener which is reasonable but the install company charged me $285 each for the same opener that costs $128.00 each as above. Also had to buy 3 new 3 key remotes to replace my older remotes due to the new technology at $27.00 each plus a new keypad remote at $37.00 . Total cost ~$861.00.

can this be used for a solid wood double garage door?

Asked by: butch
I would get a little more HP for that much weight to last longer. This is a standard Medium power model.

Does it come with everything to install

Asked by: Sha
No would be the quick answer. If you do not already have an opener, you will need a mounting bracket and additional lag bolts to attach the unit to the mounting bracket.

1/2 HP Heavy-Duty Chain Drive Garage Door Opener with MED Lifting Power is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 244.

The box contents / instructions should mention that a mounting bracket / L bracket is NOT included. This meant a trip back to the store to get a bracket. The box contents also do not contain a pair of necessary lag screws that I luckily had not discarded when I removed the old unit. The unit itself seems pretty solid and functions as intended. If at all possible I would suggest sticking with any original rail that you may have. The rail that comes with the unit is sectional and is REALLY flimsy. Mine currently bows when the door is closed all the way even though I measured the height of the door travel as stated in the instructions. I also tried raising the height an extra inch which seemed to alleviate some of the bowing but it still bows. The chain sags a bit even though I have made incremental adjustments to try to tighten it. The activator button and remote controllers seem cheap. Time will tell how long they will last.

Beware the communications to the product is only MyQ. My Benz cannot talk to it. My previous universal keypad cannot talk to it. I have to buy accessories! Warning paper was the last thing I read. Instructions are slightly weak. The included staples are worthless and cheap. AS such I stapled through a wire and lost an hour of my life debugging an issue. The sensor clips did not clip to my older garage door rails prompting me to modify and mount them to the wall. A lot of hardware (+) poorly marked in a mixed bag (-). A lot of extras. The chain mechanism when detached, is right in the way for lifting my door. A beveled edge would be nice. Can't lift my door when disengaged without pushing the top of my door. The disengage mechanism should spring back into place, but it stays locked in disengage, until manually released. Why? Would rather had screw terminals for the wiring, than push clips (my thoughts). My sears lasted 25 years. We'll see about this one.

The instructions were through and the only problem encountered with the assembly of the unit was installing the screws for the chain guide. A magnetic screwdriver would have been a big help. I was able to benefit from a previous opener having been installed as the supporting beams were in the right place. The install was completed single-handed, connected first at the door then swung up and held with temporary ropes until the alignment could be checked and the unit permanently mounted. The safety sensors installed easily as did the wall switch. Programming was simple though it took a couple attempts to get the door stopping exactly right on closure. I've now had this product installed and working for three weeks. It's a relief knowing I no longer have to worry about the opener being 'hacked' as the improved security features make this nearly impossible.

Only one remote so I'll need to buy another. Supposed yo be compatible with Genie remotes but, so far, haven't gotten them to pair. I'd buy it again if the need arises .

We had to replace the one that came with our house because the remotes were so obsolete we couldn't get replacements. Never had a problem with the old opener for 12 years. Six months later we had to buy the new opener. So far we have had trouble with the safety sensors not allowing the garage door to close acting up a couple times this month and now the receiving sensor isn't getting any juice. I think it's possible the wiring got knocked loose or stretched when a bag of empty bottles hit the cords repeatedly when a friend was trying to toss the bag up in the garage attic. It's either that or the sensor has already gone bad. We are thinking of just removing the sensors. Our other garage door opener didn't have the stupid sensors and we have never had a problem with the door coming down on one of our dogs. The door comes down too slow. A kid or a dog is already able to get out the garage long before the door could come down on them. I tend to think this is just a stupid accessory that will keep causing us problems. Otherwise, the door opener seems to work well and we have a really big garage door. I would say it's at least 10 feet as we have an oversized double car garage. My husband worked for an overhead garage door company installing doors and openers some years back. He did say the opener was working just fine before those darn sensors were installed. I'll have to see. I'm thinking it's worth saving a lot of hassle with the sensors. We didn't ever have a problem in 12 years without them. If the opener works fine without them, they are getting trashed. I did at least learn that we can by pass the sensors by holding down the button on the control inside the garage which the door closes like it's supposed to so I think we really don't need the added headache.

For one thing, there's an actual customer service number you can call for help. I also love it that now, through the miracle of microprocessor control, you no longer have to turn adjustment screws to set the opening/closing force or the range of motion: The opening/closing force needs no adjustment at all. And to set the range of motion, you just push a button to tell it you're going to teach it how far to open and close, and push up and down buttons until the door is where you want it to stop at the close and open positions.

I installed it in my workshop. It was super easy by following the directions .... even though I thought there were 2 screws missing .... it was my mistake , they were in the packaging. I had to reinforce the garage door and Home Depot even carried those parts. It is extremely quite when opening and closing. The only thing I don't like is the light stays on the whole time the door is open. I may have to doctor that! But again .... this thing was super easy to install.....
