Why would I want the remote transmitter when the unit includes 2 wireless remotes?

Asked by: Dianne
If you don't have your remove it gives you access to the garage . You input your own code. It's good if you have kids or lost your keys or controller.

If I already have an existing single piece rail previously installed for a Craftsman will it be compatible or better to use?

I plan to get Home Depot to install this. I assume they can and will.

Very quiet as advertised but it is slow to open and close (1 star removed for this feature). Replaced 21 year old 1/2 horsepower Lift-master has faster door movement. This kit contains everything needed to replace an existing door opener for an 8' high garage door - 10.5' rail, motor and electronic assembly, wall switch, 2 remotes, photo sensors, lots of wire, and complete set of mounting brackets and screws. I had to call the manufacturer technical support a couple of times and they were courteous and helpful. It has a smaller profile than my old unit and looks great. It has been almost a month and I am very satisfied with with my opener. Free shipping took 11 days from the time of order to delivery on front porch.

It was very simple to install, and the support team is great! My challenge was an air duct that runs through the garage and low overheard. The support team told me how I could actually (cut) shorten the chain and guide track and install the sensor panel on the wall instead of the norm. I had a pro come and install new springs and balance my old style wooden doors. He told me he has never heard a wooden door this quiet. Even better, it is a well thought out quality product just like the Sommer website advertised. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I certainly would!!

It worked fabulously for the first 3 months after installing it....very, very quiet opener. But it suddenly stopped working. The wall unit and both portable transmitters won't open the door anymore. Everything its getting power (all lights are lit up) and the photo eyes are aligned and working. Anytime I try to open it, the unit clicks a couple times and the lights flash but nothing engages...... I miss my old craftsman. It was noisy but never had any problems the 15 years I had it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy at own risk I bought this opener and it worked good for about 1 1/2 years then started not opening, come to find out the slide contacks were all rusty, I cleaned it off the first time and about 4 mouth later it did it again so I called customer service and thay told me it was impossible , it can't rust, so I sent in a pic of the rusty part , thay had no answer so was left to figure it out myself , I now have to put on silver grease to keep it working about every 4 to 5 months , now the safety eyes are acting up, I need to adjust them every couple days, and no its not the track moving.. long story short this opener is going in the trash......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ordered, received and installed one direct drive 3/4hp garage opener.... Ordered, received and installed one direct drive 3/4hp garage opener. Received within quoted delivery time, took 90 minutes to install, everything arrived well. Very quite operating motor, only the garage door itself seems to make noise, so it was time to lubricate the roll up panels, wheels, etc, Very happy with product ,...still trying to program "HomeLink" system on autos, and the actual round buttons on clip on openers are really small. despite this would recommend this product.

I replaced perfectly well functioning Genie screw drives with these Somer Direct Drive openers because the screw drives sounded like a freight train coming through and the garages are located below the bedrooms on the second floor. The definitely solved the problem! They are so quiet!!!

Only one I found that allowed me to mount it in center of door. (I only had 1 1/2" of space). Old Genie opener had to be mounted offset about a foot. Would recommend this over any other brand.
