IMPORTANT PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY PRIOR TO
COMMENCING THE INSTALLATION OF THE OPERATOR UNIT
!
CAUTION
This Automatic Opener has been designed to provide years of trouble free
use.
READ THESE IMPORTANT SAFETY RULES FIRST
Keep the garage door balanced. Sticking or binding doors must be repaired. Garage door,
door springs, brackets and their hardware are under extreme tension and can cause serious
personal injury. Do not attempt adjustment. Call for professional garage door service .
Do not wear rings, watches or loose clothing while installing or servicing a garage door
operator.
Installation and wiring must be in compliance with your local building and electrical
codes. Connect the power cord only to properly earthed mains.
DANGER
!
CAUTION
!
CAUTION
The safety reverse system test is very important. Your garage door must reverse when
obstructed on closing. Failure to properly adjust the operator may result in serious
personal injury from a closing garage door. Repeat the test once a month and make any
needed adjustments. (See Sensitivity adjustment).
This unit should not be installed in a damp or wet space.
Use the manual release Pull Rope to disengage the motor drive ONLY when the drive is
switched OFF and, if possible, when the door is fully closed.
Do not use the force adjustments to compensate for a binding or sticking garage door.
Excessive force will interfere with the proper operation of the Safety Reverse System or
damage the garage door.
Disengage all existing garage door locks to avoid damage to garage door.
Install any additional Push Buttons in a location where the garage door is visible, but out
of the reach of children. Do not allow children to operate push button (s) or remote
control (s). Serious personal injury from a closing garage door may result from misuse of
the operator.
CAUTION: Activate operator only when the door is in full view, free of obstructions and
the operator is properly adjusted. No one should enter or leave the garage while the door
is in motion. Do not allow children to play near the door.
Disconnect electric power to the garage door operator before making repairs or removing
covers.
IMPORTANT: Fix the caution label supplied to the rear of the garage door as a reminder
of safe operating procedures.
DANGER
NOTE: When you disengage the unit, please move the door gently. Left hand and
right hand switch must set before power up.

Ensure there is a properly earthed mains supply socket adjacent to where the operator is to be fitted.
If the operator is being fitted at the same time as the new door installation, read these instructions in conjunction
with the door installation instructions.
If the operator is being retro-fitted, make sure the door operates smoothly and is properly balanced.

tracks.
Step 3
Ensure that the U-bolt on the end of the door opposite the end to
which the opener is to be fitted is tightened securely. This U-bolt
holds all the spring tension on the door once the other U-bolt is
released.

Ensure motor assembly is fully engaged with drum wheel spoke.
Figure 3, Clamp shaft to mounting brackets using “U” Bolt
supplied. See Figure 4. Ensure the door is correctly balanced and is
not binding or sticking within vertical tracks.
Step 7
Ensure locking bars (if fitted) are moved to the retracted
(unlocked) position and keys removed from the lock. Connect the
drive unit power cord to an adjacent socket. Ensure that the socket
is properly earthed.
SETTING TOP AND BOTTOM LIMITS
Warning! –Do not run door on power or manually through its
full travel until the limits are correctly set.
Step 1
Remove the lamp cover by pressing down on the arrow area and
slide down. See Figure 5.
Step 2
Check Left/Right switch is set correctly un-clip red and green limit
clips-clamps before moving door to set limits inside looking out
right hand installation, red clamp will be for top limit and green for
bottom limit. Left hand installation green for top limit and red for
bottom limit.
Step 3
Press the Push Button on the drive unit to operate and check the
down limit is properly set. See Figure 7
Step 4
Once the limits have been set, fit security screws. With the door in
manual mode. And the door fully closed, mark the panel at the first
point where the curtain roll touches the drum wheel, on both ends
of the curtain.
Raise the door slightly so that the marks can be seen and accessed
from the inside the garage.
Fit the security screws through the bottom of a corrugation and
into the plastic flange of the drum wheel, on both ends of the
curtain. Tighten securely.
N.B. If door continues to reverse before travelling 1.8 metres,
disengage the door from the drive unit, see Figure 3. Check by
moving door up and down manually that door is not binding,
catching in tracks or out of balance e.g. not tensioned
correctly.

SENSITIVITY ADJUSTMENT
!
Warning: Improper adjustment of sensitivity force could cause entrapment, injury or death.
Set adjustment for just enough force to operate the door reliably, but no stronger. Do not over
adjust force/sensitivity to compensate for a poorly working, sticking or binding door (Contact
a qualified door technician to correct any binding, sticking and/or other door problems).
FORCE/SENSITIVITY ADJUSTMENT
Force/Sensitivity Adjustment Controls are located under light cover.
See Figure 8
Open and Close sensitivity adjustment are independent of one another
(+ indicates more force) and (- indicate less force). Never change the
Force/Sensitivity setting by more than 1 increment at a time.
Note: Force/Sensitivity is set at level 6 at the factory both for open and
close adjustments. There are 12 levels (increments) of open and close
force/sensitivity setting. When either the maximum or minimum
setting is reached the light will flash 6 times. The size and operating
conditions of the garage door will determine the correct level of Force/
Sensitivity. Weather conditions may also affect the operation of the
door requiring further adjustments as needed.
CLOSE FORCE/SENSITIVITY ADJUSTMENT
In the down or close direction the operator will reverse if the force required to close is exceeded. If the operator
completes a full closure without reversing decrease the sensitivity until the operator reverses. Once the
operator has reversed in the down direction increase sensitivity by one level.
OPEN FORCE/SENSITIVITY ADJUSTMENT
In the up or open direction the operator will stop if the force required to open the door is exceeded. If the operator completes a full open cycle without stopping decrease the sensitivity until the operator stops during the
up cycle. Once the operator stops, increase the sensitivity by one level. For safety the force setting should always be set at the latest amount necessary to run the door properly.
AUTO CLOSE OPTION
N.B. – Mandatory Photo Eye Protection must be used for this option. Contact you local supplier for details.
The drive unit provides 4 settings for the auto-close option. See Figure 8, Box 4.
Note – Only set toggle slide switch 2 and 3 (0 – Off 1 – On). When changing toggle slide switch settings drive
unit must be turned off.
PHOTO EYE PROTECTION OPTION
This drive unit provides photo eye protection as a feature option. If photo eye switch is turned “On” without
photo eyes the door will fail to close and flash 30 times. Please contact your local supplier for details.
