Questions & Answers

How fast/slow is this opener

I'm looking to replace a Lift master chain drive unit that is well past it's prime.
Asked by: homeydoo
It's about half as fast as a chain drive, but a lot quieter which makes it very nice.

How quiet is this opener we have a bed room above the garage?

Asked by: DeeBee
This unit is MUCH quieter than the chain drive we just replaced. Our kitchen is above the garage, so you could feel the previous opener work. Now, it's a distant whisper. Much nicer.

Whisper Drive 1/2 HP Belt Drive Garage Door Opener with MyQ Technology is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 686.

Easy to Assemble (four and a half stars out of five): Be very careful and diligent when assembling the track rail. If you get a piece backwards, you'll spend a few minutes grumbling and cursing while you figure out how to disassemble. I reused some of the previous opener's hardware. The brackets included in the Chamberlain product, a hacksaw, and some spare bolts made for a nice adapter. In total, the installation took about two hours for two people; starting late morning, we were done before lunch. It's been running for about a month and there have been no glitches ... not even wobbles or shimmie-shakes. This is, without a doubt, the quietest opener I have ever seen. Absolutely no "buyer's remorse" here; I really like it.

The opener, itself, was easy to install, and it operates smoothly and quietly. The travel distance was easy to set, and instructions were clear. The only reason for the low rating is I was forced to buy an additional device to allow the new opener to communicate with the Homelink buttons in my car. My universal outside keypad would also not work with the new opener. New technology should be backwards compatible, and not incorporating the capability to read existing remote controls without buying another device constitutes poor customer service on the part of Chamberlain. This new opener replaces a 14-year-old Whisper Drive unit. The belt on the old unit crumbled and fell apart, and the light covers cracked. Another garage door has a 9-year-old Whisper Drive opener, and its belt is also disintegrating. The unit states that it has a lifetime belt warranty, but Chamberlain told me the belt warranty is only 10 years. They sent me a new belt for the 9-year-old unit free of charge. I recommend checking the belt frequently, and expect it to fall apart over time.

During final testing after setting the correct start & stop range, the door would keep stopping about 3 feet short of the floor. The opener gave 10 flashes that indicates a problem with wiring of the sensors. Yet the sensors showed correct color and operated correctly for the reversing safety feature. After re-setting a few times, I called Chamberlain. Right away the tech told me to detach the sensors and point them at the floor for 10 seconds to reset them. Amazingly that worked. If this troubleshooting step had been included in the manual, it would have saved me a lot of time and frustration plus waiting on hold for 10 minutes for a tech. It sounded like this is not an uncommon issue, thus it is costing Chamberlain $$ to have to staff for unnecessary calls from customers that don't want to have to make the call! This call should never have had to be made.

Works very well and includes extra features that made this the choice over other similar products. Instructions were good with the exception of the spring screw to connect the belt. That part was a little un-clear and I noticed after fist connecting that the screw was flat on one side. Easy enough to remove and swap around, then it fit correctly. If they correct the instructions, I would increase the rating to 5 stars.

This model has a lifetime warranty on belt and motor. Belt drive is the quietest which is another reason for my choice. Programming needs more discussion in the manual. I had to call support to verify that the keypad would allow 2 doors on the same remote and how to program that function. Also the car units can be used for both doors but is not discussed in the manual.

My 2016 car quickly picked up the new code. The keypad was easy to program. Love that the light automatically comes on when I open the entry door (I didn't realize it has a motion sensor!) before opening the garage door. Very happy with my purchase. The installer recommended Chamberlain, which I had not heard of before, instead of replacing my 17 year old opener with the same brand. One word of advice - make sure you know the height of your garage door. I didn't realize that I ordered the incorrect size and my installer had to purchase a longer rail.

It replaced my old chain driven unit, so now I enjoy much more quiet operation. In the box is everything needed to install it, even brackets to hang it from the ceiling. Programming is a breeze, much easier then my previous one, remotes are preprogrammed at factory and work out of the box (except keypad outside the door, but very easy to program). It would be 5 star, but my older Chamberlain from the second garage door is not compatible with remotes from this unit, so I cant open both doors with one remote. Other then that I'm happy with this unit

It was easy to assemble, but once everything was set to go it didn't work properly, I have still not finished figuring out of how to fix the issue. Mostly i have used the youtube for figuring out of how to install it since the instruction were not as good. Garage door opener opens and closes half way, it does not open and close all the way. When asked for help from home depot they have told me to buy the installation service which cost almost more then the garage door opener itself and did not bother to explain how to install when i have declined the installation service.
