Installation Step 6
Install the Wall Control
Children operating or playing with a garage
door opener can Injure themselves or others.
The garage door could close end cause serious
Injury or death.
Install the Wall Control (or any additional push
buttons) out of the reach of children and away
from all moving parts of the door and door
hardware, but where the garage door is visible.
Do not allow children to operate the push
button(a) or the remote control(s).
• Strip 1/4" of insulation from one end of the bell
wire; connect the wire to the two screw terminals
on the back of the Wall Control: white to 2 and
white/red to 1.
• Locate the Wall Control within sight of the door
at a minimum height of 5 feet where small
children cannot reach, and away from all
moving parts of the door and door hardware.
Fasten the Ughted Push Button Wall Control
securely with 6ABx1-1/2" screws. The console
style uses 6ABxl" screws. If installing into drywall,
ddll 5/32" holes and use the anchors provided.
A moving garage door could Injure someone
under It. Activate the opener only when the
door is properly adjusted, you can see it clearly,
and there are r_oobstructions to door travel.
• Run the bell wire up the walt and across the ceiling
to the opener. Use insulated staples to secure the
wire in several places. Be careful not to pierce the
wire with a staple, thereby resulting in a short.
• Receiver terminal screws and the antenna are
located on the back panel of the opener. Position
the antenna wire as shown.
Do NOT.connect
the power and operate the
opener at this time. The trolley will travel to the
full open position but will not return to the
close position
until the sensor beam Is
connected end properly aligned.
See Safety Reversing
beginning on page 21.
• Then connect the hell wire to the opener terminal
screws: white to 2; white/red to 1.
• Remember to affix the User Safety Instruction
label to the wall near the Wall Control, and the
Maintenance Instruction label in a prominent
iocstlon on the Inside of the garage door.
If the label adhesive will not adhere to your garage
wall surface (or becomes loose with time) use tacks
to secure the label alongside the wall control.

Safety Reversing System
Information you'll need before you begin the Inatallation of the safety reversing sensor.
The safety reversing sensor mustbe connected
and aligned correctly before the garage door
opener will move In the down direction. This Is a
required safety device and cannot be disabled.
Without a properly working safety reversing
sensor, persons (particularly children) could
be Injured or killed by a closing garage door.
Read and follow all Instructions.
InstallaUon procedures are the same for s_tional
and one-piece doors.
To protect small children, Install the safety
reversing sensor so that the beam will be no
higher than 4"-6" above the garage floor.
Disconnect power to the garage door opener
before Installing the safety reversing sensor.
I
Be sure power to the opener Is disconnected.
The sending eye transmits an invisible light beam to
the receiving eye. The units can be inst;dled on
either side of the garage door as long as the sun
never shinas dirsctiy into the receiving eye lens.
Look at the label on the connector end of each case
to identify the sensors.
The brackets must be connected and fastened so
that the sending and receiving eyes face each other
as shown in Ftgura 1.
The brackets'must be securely fastened to a solid
surface such as the studs on either side of the door,
or add a piece of wood at each location if installing in
masonry construction.
The invisible light beam path must be unobstructed.
No part of the garage door (or door tracks, spdngs,
hinges, rollers or other hardware) can interrupt the
beam while the door is closing. If it does, use a piece
of wood to build out each sensor mounting location to
.the minimum depth required for light beam clearance.
If an obstruction breaks the light beam while the
garage door is closing, the door will stop and
reverse to full open position and the opener lights
will flash for 5 seconds.

Having a Problem?
Situation
Probable Cause and Solution
The opener doesnl
operate from either
the Wall Control or
the remote control:
1. Does the opener have electd.cpower? Plug.a lamp into the outlei, ff it doesn't light,
check the fuse box or the drcuit breaker. (Some outlets are controlled by a wall switch.)
2. Have you disabled all door locks? Review installationinstructionwarnings on Page 11.
3. Is there a build-up of ice or snow under the door? The door may be frozen to the
ground. Remove any restdction.
4. The garage door spdng may be broken. Have it replaced.
5. Repeated operation may have tripped the ovedoed protector in the motor. Wait
15 minutes. Try again.
Opener operates
from the remote
control, but not from
the Wall Control:
1. Is the Wall Control lit? If not, remove the bell wire from the opener terminal screws.
Short the red and white terminals by touching both terminals at the same time with a
piece of wire. If the opener runs, check for a faulty wire connection at the Wall
Control, a short under the staples, or a broken wire.
2. Are the widng connections correct? Review Step 6, page 18.
The door operates
from the Wall Control,
but not from the
remote control:
1. If your model has the Look feature, make sure the lock is Off.
2. Is any wall push button flashing? Your opener needs to re*learn a remote control
code. Refer to Instructions on the opener panel.
3. Does the battery test light glow when the remote control push button is pressed? If
not, replace the battery.
4. Program the receiver to match the remote control code.
5. Repeat the receiver programming procedure with all remote controls.
The remote control
has short range:
1. Check the battery test light. If the light is dim, replace the battery.
2. Change the location of the remote control in.your car.
3. Check to be sure the antenna on the side or back panel of opener extends fully
downward.
4.
Some installations may have shorter range due to a metal door. foil backed
insulation, or metal garage siding.
Opener noise Is
disturbing in riving
quarters of home:
If operational noise is a problem because of proximity of the opener to the living
quarters, the Vibration Isolator Kit 41A3263 can be installed. This kit was designed to
minimize vibration to the house and is easy to install.
The garage door
opens and closes
by Itself:
1. Be sure that all remote control push buttons and battery indicator lights are off.
2. Remove the bell wire from the Wall Control terminals and operate from the remote
control only. If this solves the problem, the Wall Control is faulty (replace), or there is
an intermittent short on the wire I_etween the Wall Control and the opener.
The door doesn,t
open completely:
1. If the door has been working prop6dy but now doesn't open all the way, increase the
up force. See page 29.
2. Is something obstructing the door? Remove the obstruction or repair the door.
3. If door opens at least 5 feet, the travel limits may need to be increased. One tum
equals 2 inches of travel. See page 28.
Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment Is complete.
The door stops but
doesn,t close
completely:
Review the travel limits adjustment procedures on page 28.
Repeat the safety reverse test after any adjustment of door arm length, close
force or down rimlL
