OPENING THE DOOR MANUALLY
5. If an obstruction is encountered while closing, the door will
reverse.
6. If an obstruction is encountered while opening, the door
will stop.
7. If the optional 'Infrared Sensor' is installed, the garage door
will reverse in the closing cycle when the invisible beam
is broken. An open door will not close when beam is broken.
The sensor has no effect in the opening cycle.
THE DOOR SHOULD BE FULLYCLOSEDIF POSSIBLE. WEAKOR
BROKEN SPRINGS COULD ALLOW AN OPEN DOOR TO FALL
RAPIDLY.PROPERTY DAMAGEOR SERIOUS PERSONALINJURY
COULD RESULT.DO NOT USE EMERGENCY HANDLE TO PULL
DOOR OPEN OR CLOSED.
The door can be operated manually by disconnecting it from
the opener. Pull down sharply on the red emergency release
handle and lift the door manually. To automatically reconnect
the door to the opener, press the Wait Control push bar.
OPENER LIGHTS will turn on under the following conditions:
when the opener is initially plugged in; when the power is
interrupted; when the opener is activated. They will turn off
automatically after 41/2 minutes or provide constant light when
Light Feature is activated. Bulb size 75 watts maximum.
LOCKOUT FEATURE: prevents trolley from reconnecting
automatically. If you need to use this feature, pull emergency
handle down and back (toward the opener). Trolleywill remain
"Locked-Out"
and door can be raised and lowered manually.
To reconnect trolley, pull emergency handle straight down.
CARE OF THE OPENER
When properly installed, opener will provide high performance
with a minimum of maintenance. The opener does not require
additional lubrication.
CHAIN TENSION ADJUSTMENT: After installation of the
opener and adjustment of forces and limits, the chain may
appear loose. This is normal, To check the chain tension:
disconnect the trolley by pulling the red emergency handle.
If the chain returns to the position described and illustrated
in Step 5 page 9, DO NOT make ANY further adjustments.
TRANSMITTER: The 3-function transmitter will operate more
than one garage door opener, if desired. The other push buttons may also be used to operate 53000 and 53000SR Series
tight controls. Transmitter may be secured to car sun visor
with clip provided. Additional transmitters can be purchased
at any time. Refer to Accessories on page 4.
Any new transmitters must be set to the same code as the
original transmitter. Page 19 explains how to change your
existing code and use the transmitter(s) with other 53000 and
53000 SR receivers. Self service of your radio controls is not
recommended. If service is needed, contact your nearest
Sears Service Center.
Most complaints of unsatisfactory opener operation can be
traced to problems with the door itself. When operated
manually, a properly balanced door will stay in any point of
travel while being supported entirely by its springs.
THE OPENER IS NOT INTENDED TO CORRECT ANY
PROBLEMS THAT ARE CAUSED BY AN UNBALANCED OR
BINDING DOOR, BROKEN DOOR SPRINGS OR BY FAULTY
DOOR HARDWARE.
LIMIT AND FORCE ADJUSTMENTS: These adjustments
must be checked and properly set when opener is installed.
Only a screwdriver is required. Page 17 refers to the limit and
force adjustments. Follow instructions carefully.
REPEAT SAFETY REVERSE TEST AFTER ANY ADJUSTMENT OF FORCE AND/OR LIMITS. Weather conditions
may cause some minor changes in door operation requiring some readjustments, particularly during the first year
of operation.
TRANSMITTER
BATTERY: The 12 Volt battery should
produce power for at least one year. As long as the battery
power is adequate, the transmitter test light will glow when
the push button is pressed (and the opener will Operate).
When the light does not come on, replace the battery. If transmission range lessens, check battery test light.
THE SAFETY REVERSE SYSTEM IS IMPORTANT (See
pg. 18). GARAGE DOOR MUST REVERSE ON CONTACT
WITH A ONE-INCH OBSTACLE PLACED ON THE FLOOR.
FAILURE TO PROPERLY ADJUST OPENER MAY RESULT
IN SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY FROM A CLOSING
GA R._.GE DOOR.

THE SAFETY REVERSE SYSTEM TEST IS IMPORTANT. GARAGE DOOR MUST REVERSE ON CONTACT
WITH A ONE INCH OBSTACLE PLACED ON THE FLOOR. FAILURE TO PROPERLY ADJUST OPENER MAY
RESULT IN SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY FROM A CLOSING GARAGE DOOR. REPEAT TEST AT LEAST
FOUR TIMES A YEAR AND ADJUST AS NEEDED.
PROCEDURE: Place a 1-inch obstacle on the floor under
the garage door. Operate door in DOWN direction. The
dOor MUST reverse on the obstruction.
If the door STOPS on the obstruction, it is not traveling
far enough in the DOWN direction. Increase the DOWN
limit by turning DOWN limit adjustment screw counterclockwise 1/4 turn. REPEAT TEST.
NOTE: Make sure limit adjustments do not force the
door arm beyond a straight up and down position. See
the illustration on Page 16,

When the door reverses on the 1-inch obstacle, remove
the obstruction and run the opener through a complete

SITUATION
PROBABLE CAUSE & SOLUTION
OPENER DOESN'T OPERATE
FROM WALL CONTROL OR
TRANSMITTER
1. Have you disengaged all door locks? Review Step 8, page 14.
2. Does the opener have electric power? Plug a lamp into the outlet. If it doesn't
light, check fuse box or circuit breaker. (Some outlets are controlled by a wall switch.)
3. Repeated operation may have tripped the overload protector in the motor. Wait
15 minutes. Try again.
4. Is there a build-up of ice or snow under door? Door may be frozen to ground.
Remove any obstruction.
5. Remove bell wire from opener terminals. Short red and white terminals by touching both terminals at same time with a piece of metal (screwdriver or coin), ffopener
rune, check for a faulty wire connection at Wall Control or a short under staples.
OPENER OPERATES FROM
TRANSMITTER
BUT NOT
FROM WALL CONTROL
2. Are wiring connections correct? Review Step 6, page 13.
DOOR OPERATES FROM
WALL CONTROL BUT NOT
FROM THE TRANSMITTER
1. Does the battery test light glow when transmitter push button is pressed? If not,
replace the battery.
1. Is Wall Control push button lit? If not, refer to No. 5 above.
2. If you have two transmitters and only one operates, review the code setting
procedures on page 19. ALL transmitters must be set to same code.
3. Is transmitter(s) operating any other remote control devices? See the code setting
procedures on page 19,
4. Did you press the transmitter button designated to operate garage door opener?
5. Is the Lock Light ON? Turn it OFF.
TRANSMITTER
HAS
SHORT RANGE
1. Check battery test light. If the light is dim, change the battery,
2. Change the location of the transmitter in the car.
3. A metal garage door, foil-backed insulation or metal siding will reduce the
transmission range. An antenna extender kit is available from any Sears sk_re or
service center.
4. Check to be sure antenna on the right side panel of opener extends fully downward.
THE GARAGE DOOR OPENS
AND CLOSES BY ITSELF
1. Is there a neighbor with a garage door opener using the same frequency code?
Change your code. Review page 19.
2. Make sure none of the transmitter push buttons is stuck in the 'down' position.
3. Remove bell wire from opener terminals and operate from transmitter only. If this
solves the problem, the Wall Control is faulty (replace), or there is a short or broken
wire between Wall Control and opener.
DOOR DOESN'T
COMPLETELY

1. Is something obstructing the door?
2. If door opens at least 5 feet, travel limits may need to be increased. One turn equals
2 inches of travel. See page 17.

Check the Light Feature on Wall Control. Is it ON? Turn it OFF.
3. If the light doesn't turn off at the Wall Control, check yellow wire at Wall Control

It is normal for chain to droop slightly in the closed door. position. Use emergency
release rope and handle to disconnect trolley. If chain returns to normal height
when the trolley is disengaged and door reverses on a"one-inch obstruction, no
adjustments are needed (see page 9).
