TO REDUCE THE RISK OF SEVERE INJURY OR
DEATH, READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
Do not install this opener or any other opener on "HIGH RISK" garage doors that may cause severe injury, entrapment or death!
See back page for serious injuries which may occur if “HIGH RISK” areas are left uncorrected.
Martin Finger Shield Garage Doors are “Low Risk”.
IMPORTANT
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT
MAINTENANCE & SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Untrained or Negligent Installing, Adjusting and Servicing can be Dangerous! The
garage door springs and related parts can cause serious injury or death! IF YOU ARE
UNSURE, CALL A TRAINED MARTIN DOOR DEALER!
Monthly, check the opener's down cycle safety reverse. The door must reverse when it
contacts a 1 1/2" (38) high object (or a 2X4 board laid flat) on the floor, in line with the door
opener. A closing door must also reverse if the photo eyes are interrupted. See Steps 12,13.
Garage door should be balanced and easy to open and close by hand.
Always keep the moving door in sight and away from people and objects until it is
completely closed. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF THE MOVING DOOR.
Locks should be disabled and pull down ropes should be removed.
Locate wall control/push button within sight of door, at min. height of 5' (1520) so
small children cannot reach it, and away from all moving parts of door. See Step 8.
Emergency release tag should be installed above knob and adjusted to about
6' (1830) above the floor. Opener should be 7’ (2130) above floor. See Step 9.
Risk of electrical shock is explained in Step10. Do not connect opener to source
of power until instructed to do so.
Entrapment and warning labels should be installed next to the wall control/push
button as explained in Step 14.
Do not allow children to operate or play with the garage door controls. Keep the remote
control away from children.
The emergency release should only be used when garage door is in the closed position.
Weak or broken springs may cause door to fall if released in the open position, increasing
the risk of severe injury or death. Use caution when using the release with door open.
Monthly visually check the lift cables, spring assembly, hardware, etc. for wear and stability.
If the Safety Reverse or any other part of the garage door and opener system do not work
properly, or if you do not understand, call a trained Martin Door Dealer.

END
STILE
A Martin Opener requires 1 ½" (38) more clearance than the
required garage door clearance.
Doors over 18'2" (5540) wide should use side mount opener
installation only. The opener door bracket will not fit on wide
doors with “U” / “C” struts and double end stiles. If door has
double end stiles with double top roller brackets, drill out hole
in end of curved power arm to 7/16" (14) and attach direct to
the long stem roller shaft between the double top roller
brackets. This makes a solid side mount opener installation.

APPLICABLE SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE BEGINNING.
STEP 1
FASTENING THE OPENER DOOR BRACKET
Study "Opener Door Bracket Guidelines” on page 6.
CENTER MOUNT
Decide if the opener will be mounted to the center, off center or side of the garage door.
Center and off center mounted openers always require a “full width” top strut on the door. If
side mounted, Martin Doors up to 12'2" (3700) wide may or may not require a top strut.
Fasten the opener door bracket under the top roller bracket for side mounting or on the
stile and strut for center/off center mounting. Fasten with 1/4” x 1” Thread Forming Screws.

***STEP 11 CONTINUED***
DOWN FORCE
LED #4 and #6 should be blinking. Press and release the "+" or "-" button once. The
illuminated LEDs around the display will display the current force setting. By pressing the
"+" or "-” key, the force can be increased (+) or decreased (-). The force should be set as
low as possible. A suggestion is LEDs #1 and #2 should illuminate for one-car size doors
and LEDs #1, #2, #3 for two-car size doors. Once the desired force is selected, press and
release the "P" button. See Figure 29
TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING
LED #7 should be blinking. While LED #7 is blinking, press and hold the desired button on
the transmitter. When the LED #7 blinks rapidly, release the transmitter button. The
opener has now learned the particular code of this transmitter. Press and release the "P"
button. This stores the code in memory. See Figure 30
END PROGRAMMING
LED #8 should be illuminated. Press transmitter button to open and close the door two
times. This allows the opener smart computer to set its complete memory and "learn" the
proper operating levels. Each time the door is opened or closed the #5 LED illuminates
about 2 seconds as the belt or chain activates the position switch on the power head
chassis. This is a visual check regarding computer memory retention. The “smart
computer” retains memory even after a power outage. See Figure 31
NOTE: If one setting needs to be changed without adjusting any of the other settings,
simply press and hold the "P" button for about 5 seconds, then press and release
"P" repeatedly until the desired setting is reached. This bypasses the unneeded
adjustments. When desired setting is complete, simply press "P" as many times as
needed to return the opener to normal operating mode with LED #8 illuminated.

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF SEVERE INJURY OR
DEATH, READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT MAINTENANCE & SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Monthly, check the opener's down cycle safety reverse. The door must reverse when it
contacts a 1 1/2" (38) high object (or a 2X4 board laid flat) on the floor, in line with the door
opener. A closing door must also reverse if the photo eyes are interrupted. See Steps 12,13.
The emergency release should only be used when garage door is in the closed position.
Weak or broken springs may cause door to fall, if released in the open position, increasing
the risk of severe injury or death. Use caution when using the release with door open.
Always keep the moving door in sight and away from people and objects until it is
completely closed. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF THE MOVING DOOR.
Monthly visually check lift cables, spring assembly, hardware, etc. for wear and stability.
Do not allow children to operate or play with the garage door controls. Keep the remote
control away from children.
If the Safety Reverse or any other part of the garage door and opener system do not work
properly, or if you do not understand, call a trained Martin Door Dealer.
COPYRIGHT © 2002 MARTIN DOOR
KEEP GARAGE DOOR PROPERLY BALANCED. See garage door owner’s manual. An
improperly balanced door increases the risk of severe injury or death. Call a trained Martin
Door Dealer to repair lift cables, spring assemblies and other hardware.

STEP 12
TEST DOWN FORCE REVERSAL
Place a 1 1/2”(38) high object (or a 2X4 laid flat) on the floor, in
line with the door opener. When the closing door contacts the
object, it should stop, reverse, and automatically return to the
open position. If the door does not reverse, reset the down travel
limit so that the door travels slightly further down in the closed
direction. Then, retest the unit as described above. See Figure 32

Is the wall control button light blinking? If so, your opener is in the vacation / lock mode. Push vacation lock button to turn off.
Has the opener learned the code of the transmitter? Repeat transmitter programming steps. See STEP 15.
Have all transmitters been set with the same code? Repeat code learning procedure. See STEP 15.
Does the transmitter indicator light blink when the transmitter button is pressed? If not, replace battery.
Are photo eyes obstructed? If so, door will only close while wall control/push button is pressed and held.
Is something obstructing the door? Remove obstructions only after ensuring door area is free of persons, pets, and any other objects.
If door has been working properly but now doesn't, increase the up force and/or reset the open travel limit. After
adjustment Is completed, repeat the reversal tests. See STEP 12.
Is something obstructing the door or in the path of the photo eyes? Remove obstructions only after ensuring door area is free of
persons, pets, and any other objects. Rail assembly may require a center support to ceiling.
If door has been working properly but now doesn't, increase the down force and/or reset the close travel limit. After
adjustment Is completed, repeat the reversal tests. See STEP 13.
Check the photo eyes for proper connection and alignment. Clean the photo eyes.
