Questions & Answers

can I use the opener only with my existing track and chain?

can I use the opener only with my existing track and chain?
Asked by: dan
Not likely. this unit has a sectional track with a connecting bracket that connects the drive unit to its sectional track. This "connecting bracket" inserts into the track on one end and is bolted to the drive unit on the other end. The holes in the connecting bracket are pre-drilled specifically to line up with the holes in the top of the unit. I had a Lift Master [mfg by Chamberlain] previously and its L shaped track was not compatible with the drive unit mounting holes.

Asked by: monkee
partially. it comes with two 'drop down' L brackets that connect from the ceiling mounting bracket [NOT included] and the drive unit. It includes the mounting bolts, nuts and lock washers however. You'll need to supply the ceiling mount hardware yourself.

The description says this opener uses a 100 watt CFL bulb. Can I use an LED bulb instead? Does it matter as long as the base and wattage are equivalent?
Asked by: BabyGirl
i'm using a 60W LED bulb and it works fine.

1/2 HP Heavy-Duty Chain Drive Garage Door Opener with MED Lifting Power is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from iF YOU HAVE A HOMELINK SYSTEM IN YOUR CAR BEWARE!! IT WILL NOT WORK WITH MANY CHAMBERLAIN MODELS... iF YOU HAVE A HOMELINK SYSTEM IN YOUR CAR BEWARE!! IT WILL NOT WORK WITH MANY CHAMBERLAIN MODELS! Normally this would not be a problem BUT Chamberlain puts a warning INSIDE the box, not on the outside so you can take this into consideration BEFORE purchasing the product and taking it all the way home. Then begins the UPSELL. When you go to their "bridge" website and type in the make/model/year of your car it will take you to a SALES page where you can buy a 'bridge' translator for $25...Not cool. They could give these to registered product customers for free and win our loyalty but nope, they want to stick us for more money. So not cool.

Installed during a Saturday afternoon, everything needed came in the box and the instructions were straight forward. Once installed, it has been smooth operating. We have an insulated metal garage door and this opener has no problem in the power department. We didn't need any fancy gimmicks, just an opener that does its job well. So far, so good. The wired button is very simple, its just lighted, but that makes it easy to find in the dark. The wireless remote is nice and sleek, much less bulkier than the old one it was replacing. I would recommend this unit to anyone who needs to replace or upgrade a garage opener on a budget.

Don't like the chain adjustment and down stop adjustment. I've used all the chain adjustment and the chain still sags below the rail when door is down. My old opener had a spring on the chain adjustment that kept the chain taut. Should have a second remote included.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gift Assembly was very simple, parts were well packed and very complete. It replaced a very old Genie opener that parts were no longer available for. I couldn't find a dimension listed before unpacking and found that the extra length of the unit required significant extra work to be able to fit it in. I'm also disappointed with the configuration of the pushbutton. Seems like a costly overdesign, what's wrong with a N/O switch? The unit is comparatively quiet and easy to program. The "Protector" systems are trouble prone due to being moved out of alignment or other obstructions, but do serve a purpose.

I'm getting ready to install this Chamberlain 1/2 HP heavy duty chain drive garage door opener. As can seen by the attached photos everything you need for standard installation is included, you may have to provide some support wood. All the pieces are steel except for the pulley and chain spreader. It is structurally sound from my experience installing other brands. I really like the safety sensors, which are intended to stop the downward direction of the door, if there is an obstruction. The remote is programed for this opener. It is warranted for 1 year. Installation will be easy, just follow the step by step instruction, which I already did, makes assembly much easier when you are familiar with the parts and pieces, almost like you have done it before.

This has turned out to be a wonderful product, and is working very well on our garage door. It is much quieter than our old opener, and has the sensor feature that our old one lacked. It does only come with one openerr however, about the only drawback to the product. I would suggest watching the video noted on the from of the instruction booklet before installation, although directions are well written actually watching the process was a help

After being promised (and let down a few times), I went online to find a video to help me replace my existing garage door opener. I finally got it done after a few hours (only because I have absolutely no experience). Pretty easy to replace. Works wonderfully, and is about the same amount of noise as the last garage door opener. Only comes with one remote control, is my only complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replace 30 yr old chamberlainopener with this one. Replaced this opener from an old 1980's Craftsman with dip switches and no photo-optics. I was able to reuse the T rail and just mount the motor/control unit. Had to add the optics and new push button switch and everything worked. I have a one piece wooden 2 car garage door and 1/2 horse power was plenty , important thing is to have balance door springs. I also was able to reuse the Universal wireless keyless pad. The instructions for the keypad was saying that the yellow button was a type 3 opener which didn't work, these were liftmaster 387LM instructions. I then downloaded the Chamberlain KLIK2U instructions and found the correct Type 4 and code #8 for yellow button openers worked. The code #8 was missing in the Liftmaster instruction which is why I read somewhere people were giving up on the 387LM and buying the 877LM keyless pad which was unnecessary because of old documentation. I plan to hook up a 828LM gateway in the future.
