Installation Step 1
WARNING
Determine Header Bracket Location
If the header bracket is not rigidly fastened to a
structural support on the header wall or ceiling, the
safety reverse system may not work properly (see page
26). The door might not reverse when required, and
could cause serious injury or death.
The garage door springs, cables, pulleys, brackets and
their hardware are under extreme tension. Do not attempt
to loosen, move or adjust them yourself. Serious
personal injury or death could result. Call for
professional garage door service.
Installation procedures vary according to garage
door types. Follow the instructions which apply to
your door.

The Protector System®
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE
SAFETY REVERSING SENSOR
WARNING
The safety reversing sensor must be 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.
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.
When properly connected and aligned, the safety
reversing sensor will detect an obstacle in the path of its
electronic beam. The sending eye (with an orange
indicator light) transmits an invisible light beam to the
receiving eye (with a green indicator light). If an
obstruction breaks the light beam while the door is
closing, the door will stop and reverse to full open
position, and the opener light will flash for 5 seconds.
The units must be installed inside the garage so that the
sending and receiving eyes face each other across the
door, between 4-6" above the floor. Either can be
installed on the left or right of the door as long as the sun
never shines directly into the receiving eye lens.
The mounting brackets are designed to clip onto the
garage door track without additional hardware.
If it is necessary to mount the units on the wall, the
brackets must be securely fastened to a solid surface such
as the wall framing. Extension brackets (see Accessories)
are available if needed. If installing in masonry
construction, add a piece of wood at each location to
avoid drilling extra holes in masonry if repositioning is
necessary.
The invisible light beam path must be unobstructed. No
part of the garage door (or door tracks, springs, hinges,
rollers or other hardware) may interrupt the beam while
the door is closing.

Garage door track installation (preferred):
• Slip the curved arms over the rounded edge of each
door track, with the curved arms facing the door. Snap
into place against the side of the track. It should lie
flush, with the lip hugging the back edge of the track, as
shown in Figure 1.
If your door track will not support the bracket securely,
wall installation is recommended.
Sensor
Bracket
Wall installation:
• Place the bracket against the wall with curved arms
facing the door. Be sure there is enough clearance for
the sensor beam to be unobstructed.
• If additional depth is needed, an extension bracket (see
Accessories) or wood blocks can be used.
• Use bracket mounting holes as a template to locate and
drill (2) 3/16" diameter pilot holes on the wall at each
side of the door, from 4–6" above the floor.
• Attach brackets to wall with lag screws (not provided).
• If using extension brackets or wood blocks, adjust right
and left assemblies to the same distance out from the
mounting surface. Make sure all door hardware
obstructions are cleared.

Recommended Wire Routing
1. Using insulated staples, run the wires from both
sensors to the rail at the door header (see Figure 5).
2. Cross and twist the two wires where they meet the rail
(see inset A). Run the wires inside the channels at the
top of the rail, along each side, to the power unit and
pull taut (see inset B). Do not use the lower (trolley)
channels.
NOTE: If your access door is near the garage door,
you may choose to install the door control at this time
and run the door control wire along the rail with the
sensor wires. Use one rail channel for the door control
wire and the other channel for both sensor wires. If
you choose this option, follow instructions 1-3
on page 17 now.
3. Thread the wires through the tabs on top of the drive
shaft cover.
4. With your screwdriver tip, tuck the wires snugly into

WARNING
Install the Door Control
and Connect all Wiring
DO NOT CONNECT TO LIVE ELECTRICAL WIRING. CONNECT
ONLY TO 24 VOLT LOW VOLTAGE WIRES. CONNECTION TO
LIVE WIRES OR HIGHER VOLTAGE MAY CAUSE SERIOUS
INJURY FROM SHOCK, BURN OR ELECTROCUTION.
Children operating or playing with a garage door opener can
injure themselves or others. The garage door could close and
cause serious injury or death. Do not allow children to operate
the push button or the remote control transmitter.
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 no obstructions to door travel.
Locate the door 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.
The door control is typically attached directly to the wall. If
installing into drywall, drill 5/32" holes and use the anchors
provided. For pre-wired installations (as in new home
construction), the multi-function door control can be mounted
to a standard single gang box.
1. Strip 1/4" of insulation from one end of the bell wire and
connect it to the two screw terminals on the back of the door
control by color: white to 2 and white/red to 1. (Fig. 1)
2. Lighted door control: Fasten to wall with 6ABx1-1/2" selftapping screws.
Multi-function: Remove the white cover by gently pushing
both thumbs against upper corners of cover on the back side
of the door control (Fig. 2). Fasten with 6ABx1-1/4" selftapping screws (standard installation) or 6-32x1" machine
screws (pre-wired installation) as follows: (Fig. 3)
• Install bottom screw, allowing 1/8" to protrude from the wall.
• Position bottom of door control over screw head and adjust
for snug fit.
• Install top screw with care to avoid cracking plastic
housing. Do not overtighten.
• Replace cover by inserting bottom tabs and snapping into
place. To remove cover after mounting, gently pry at top
with paper clip or small flat head screwdriver.
NOTE: After installation, a green indicator light behind the
cover will indicate proper connection. If not lit, the Lock and
Light features will not function (reverse wires to correct).
3. Standard installation only: Run bell wire up wall and
across ceiling to opener. Use insulated staples to secure wire
in several places. Be careful not to pierce the wire with a
staple, creating a short. If your access door is near the
garage door, you may run this wire with the Safety Reversing
Sensor wires along the top of the rail. See page 14.
4. Remove Control Center door on right panel of opener to
access the terminal screws.
5. Thread all wires through the opening at the base of the drive
shaft cover (Fig. 4).
6. Insert the remaining wire through the hole in the power unit
and strip 1/4" of insulation from each set of wires.

WARNING
Electrical Requirements
To prevent electrocution or fire, installation and wiring
must be in compliance with local electrical and building
codes.
Do NOT use an extension cord, 2-wire adapter, or change
the plug in any way to make it fit your outlet.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, your garage door
opener has a grounding type plug with a third grounding
pin. This plug will only fit into a grounding type outlet.
If the plug doesn't fit into the outlet you have, contact a
qualified electrician to install the proper outlet.
To avoid installation difficulties,
do not run the opener until Step 9 below.
If permanent wiring is required by your local code,
refer to the following procedure:

• Electric power to the opener.
• A short in the white or white/black wires. These can
occur under staples or at screw terminal connections.
• Incorrect wiring between sensors and opener.
• A broken wire.
2. If the sending eye indicator light glows steadily but the
receiving eye indicator light doesn't:
• Check alignment.
• Check for an open wire to the receiving eye.
3. If the receiving eye indicator light is dim, realign
either sensor.
NOTE: When the invisible beam path is obstructed or
misaligned while the door is closing, the door will
reverse. If the door is already open, it will not close. The
opener lights will flash 10 times. (If bulbs are not
installed, 10 clicks are audible.) See page 12.
Installation Step 9
Complete Safety Reversing Sensor
Installation
Aligning the Safety Sensors
• Plug in the opener. The indicator lights in both the
sending and receiving eyes will glow steadily if wiring
connections and alignment are correct.
The sending eye orange indicator light will glow
regardless of alignment or obstruction. If the green
indicator light in the receiving eye is off, dim, or
flickering (and the invisible light beam path is not
obstructed), alignment is required.
• Loosen the sending eye wing nut and re-adjust, aiming
directly at the receiving eye. Lock in place.
• Loosen the receiving eye wing nut and adjust sensor
vertically and/or horizontally until it receives the

WARNING
Fasten Door Bracket
To prevent damage to steel, aluminum, fiberglass or
glass panel doors, always reinforce the inside of the door
both vertically and horizontally with an angle iron.
Follow instructions which apply to your door type
as illustrated below or on page 21.
A horizontal brace should be long enough to be secured to 2 vertical supports. A vertical brace should cover the
height of the top panel.
The illustration shows one piece of angle iron as the horizontal brace. For the vertical brace, 2 pieces of angle iron
are used to create a U-shaped support. The best solution is to check with your garage door manufacturer for an
opener installation door reinforcement kit.

Adjustment Procedures for One-Piece Doors
On one-piece doors, before connecting the door arm to the trolley the travel limits must be adjusted. Limit adjustment
screws are located on the right side panel as shown on page 24. Follow adjustment procedures below.
Open Door Adjustment:
Decrease UP Travel Limit
• Turn the UP limit adjustment screw counter-clockwise
5 1/2 turns.
• Press the Door Control push bar. The trolley will
travel to the fully open position.
• Manually raise the door to the open position (parallel
to the floor), and lift the door arm to the trolley. The
arm should touch the trolley just in back of the door
arm connector hole. Refer to the fully open
trolley/door arm positions in the illustration. If the arm
does not extend far enough, adjust the limit further.
One full turn equals 2" of trolley travel.
Closed Door Adjustment:
Decrease DOWN Travel Limit
• Turn the DOWN limit adjustment screw clockwise
5 complete turns.
• Press the Door Control push bar. The trolley will travel
to the fully closed position.
• Manually close the door and lift the door arm to the
trolley. The arm should touch the trolley just ahead of
the door arm connector hole. Refer to the fully closed
trolley/door arm positions in the illustration. If the arm
is behind the connector hole, adjust the limit further.
One full turn equals 2" of trolley travel.
Connect the Door Arm to the Trolley:
• Close the door and join the curved arm to the connector hole in the trolley with the remaining clevis pin. It may be
necessary to lift the door slightly to make the connection.
• Secure with a ring fastener.
• Run the opener through a complete travel cycle. If the door has a slight "backward" slant in full open position as shown
in the illustration, decrease the UP limit until the door is parallel to the floor.
23
Adjustment Section: Pages 24 – 26
Adjustment Step 1
WARNING
Adjust the UP and DOWN Limits
Improper adjustment of the travel limits will interfere with
the proper operation of the safety reverse system. The
door might not reverse properly when required and could
seriously injure or kill someone under it. Test the safety
reverse system monthly, and following all adjustments to
the travel limits. See page 26.
Do not make any limit adjustments until the safety
reversing sensors are completely installed.
Limit adjustment settings regulate the points at which the
door will stop when moving up or down.
The door will stop in the up direction if anything
interferes with door travel. The door will reverse in the
down direction if anything interferes with the door travel
(including binding or unbalanced doors).
To operate the opener, press the Door Control push bar or
button. Run the opener through a complete travel cycle.
• Does the door open and close completely?
• Does the door stay closed and not reverse
unintentionally when fully closed?
If your door passes both of these tests, no limit
adjustments are necessary unless the reversing test fails
(see page 26).

Adjust UP Travel
Adjust DOWN Travel
How and When to Adjust the Limits
If the door does not open completely but opens at least
five feet:
Increase up travel. Turn the UP limit adjustment screw
clockwise. One turn equals 2" of travel.
If door does not open at least 5 feet: Adjust the UP
(open) force as explained in Adjustment Step 2.
If the opener reverses in fully closed position:
Decrease down travel. Turn the DOWN limit adjustment
screw clockwise. One turn equals 2" of travel.
If the door reverses when closing and there is no
visible interference to travel cycle:
If the opener lights are flashing, the Safety Reversing
Sensors are either not installed, misaligned, or obstructed.
See Troubleshooting, page 18.
Test the door for binding: Pull the manual release handle.
Manually open and close the door. If the door is binding,
call for garage door service. If the door is not binding or
unbalanced, adjust the DOWN (close) force. See
Adjustment Step 2.
If the door does not close completely:
Increase down travel. Turn the DOWN limit adjustment
screw counterclockwise. One turn equals 2" of travel.
If door still won't close completely, try lengthening the
door arm. (Page 22.)
If you have adjusted the door arm to the maximum length
and the door still will not close completely, lower the
header bracket. See Installation Step 1, pages 8/9.
24
Adjustment Step 2
WARNING
Adjust the Force
Too much force on the door will interfere with the proper
operation of the safety reverse system. The door might
not reverse properly when required and could seriously
injure or kill someone under it. Do not increase the force
beyond the minimum amount required to close the door.
Do not use the force adjustments to compensate for a
binding or sticking garage door. Test the safety reverse
system monthly, and following all adjustments to force
levels. See page 26.
Force adjustment controls are located on the right panel
of the opener. Force adjustment settings regulate the
amount of power required to open and close the door.
The door will stop in the up direction if anything
interferes with its travel. The door will reverse in the
down direction if anything interferes with its travel
(including binding or unbalanced doors).
If the forces are set too light, door travel may be
interrupted by nuisance reversals in the down direction
and stops in the up direction. Weather conditions can
affect the door movement, so occasional adjustment may
be needed.
The maximum force adjustment range is about 3/4 of a
complete turn. Do not force controls beyond that point.

How and When to Adjust the Forces
Test the DOWN (close) force
Grasp the door bottom when the door is about halfway
through DOWN (close) travel. The door should reverse.
Reversal halfway through down travel does not
guarantee reversal on a one-inch obstruction. See
page 26. If the door is hard to hold or doesn't reverse,
decrease the DOWN (close) force by turning the control
counterclockwise.
Make small adjustments until the door reverses normally.
After each adjustment, run the opener through a complete
cycle.
If the door doesn't open at least 5 feet:
Increase UP (Open) force by turning the control
clockwise. Make small adjustments until door opens
completely. Readjust the UP limit if necessary. After each
adjustment, run the opener through a complete travel
cycle.
If the door reverses during the down (close) cycle and
the opener lights aren't flashing:
Increase DOWN (close) force by turning the control
clockwise. Make small adjustments until the door
completes a close cycle. After each adjustment, run the
opener through a complete travel cycle. Do not increase
the force beyond the minimum amount required to
close the door.
Test the UP (open) force
Grasp the door bottom when the door is about halfway
through UP (open) travel. The door should stop. If the
door is hard to hold or doesn't stop, decrease UP (open)
force by turning the control counterclockwise.
Make small adjustments until the door stops easily. After
each adjustment, run the opener through a complete travel
cycle.

fuse box or the circuit breaker. (Some outlets are controlled by a wall switch.)
2. Have you disabled all door locks? Review installation instruction warnings on Page 7.
3. Is there a build-up of ice or snow under the door? The door may be frozen to the ground.
Remove any restriction.
4. The garage door spring may be broken. Have it replaced.
5. Repeated operation may have tripped the overload protector in the motor. Wait
15 minutes. Try again.
Opener operates from
the remote control, but
not from the door
control:
1. Is the door control push bar 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 door control, a
short under the staples, or a broken wire.
2. Are the wiring connections correct? Review Installation Step 7, page 17.
The door operates from
the door control, but not
from the remote
control:
1. If your model has the Lock feature, turn it off.
2. Is the 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.
2.
3.
4.
Opener noise is
disturbing in living
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 door control terminals and operate from the remote control
only. If this solves the problem, the door control is faulty (replace), or there is an
intermittent short on the wire between the door control and the opener.
The door doesn't open
completely:
1. If the door has been working properly but now doesn't open all the way, increase the up
force. See page 25.
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 turn equals
2 inches of travel. See page 24.
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 24.
Repeat the safety reverse test after any adjustment of door arm length, close force or down
limit.
Check the battery test light. If the light is dim, replace the battery.
Change the location of the remote control in your car.
Check to be sure the antenna on the right side panel of opener extends fully.
Some installations may have shorter range due to a metal door, foil backed insulation, or
metal garage siding.

Having a Problem? (continued)
Situation
Probable Cause & Solution
The door opens but
won't close:
1. If the opener lights blink, check the safety reversing sensor. See page 18.
2. If the opener lights do not blink and it is a new installation, check the down force. See
Adjustment Step 2, page 25. For an existing installation, see below.
Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete.
The door reverses for no
apparent reason and
opener lights don't
blink:
1. Is something obstructing the door? Pull the manual release handle. Operate the door
manually. If it is unbalanced or binding, call for professional garage door service.
2. Clear any ice or snow from the garage floor area where the door closes.
3. Review the force adjustment procedures on page 25.
4. If door reverses in the fully closed position, decrease the travel limits (page 24).
Repeat the safety reverse test after adjustments to force or travel limits. The need for
occasional adjustment of the force and limit settings is normal. Weather conditions in
particular can affect door travel.
The door reverses for no
apparent reason and
opener lights blink for
5 seconds after
reversing:
Check the safety reversing sensor. Remove any obstruction or align the receiving eye. See
page 18.
The opener lights…
don't turn on:
Replace the light bulb(s) (100 watts maximum). Use a standard neck garage door opener bulb
if regular bulb burns out.
don't turn off:
Is the Light feature on? Turn it off.
The opener strains or
maximum force is
needed to operate door:
The door may be out of balance or the springs are broken. Close the door and use the manual
release handle to disconnect the trolley. Open and close the door manually. A properly
balanced door will stay in any point of travel while being supported entirely by its springs. If
it does not, disconnect the opener and call for professional garage door service. Do not
increase the force to operate the opener.
The opener motor
hums briefly, then
won't work:
1. The garage door springs are broken. See above.
2. If the problem occurs on the first operation of the opener, door may be locked. Disable the
door lock.
Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete.
The opener won't
operate due to power
failure:
1. Use the manual release handle to disconnect the trolley. The door can be opened and closed
manually. When power is restored, press the Door Control push bar and trolley will
automatically reconnect (unless trolley is in lockout position.) See page 28.
2. The Outside Quick Release accessory (for use on garages with no service door) disconnects
the trolley from outside the garage in case of power failure.
