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.
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.
TO CHECK THE CHAIN TENSION: Disconnect the trolley
by pulling the red handle. If the chain returns to the
position described and illustrated in Step 3 page 9, DO
NOT make ANY further adjustments.
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.
REMOTE CONTROL TRANSMITTER: The portable
remote control may be secured to a car sun visor with the
clip provided. Additional remotes can be purchased at any
time for use in all vehicles using garage. Refer to
Accessories on page 4.
LIMIT AND FORCE ADJUSTMENTS: These adjustments
must be checked and properly set when opener is installed.
Only a screwdriver is required. Pages 20 and 21 refer to the
limit and force adjustments. Follow the instructions carefully.
REPEAT THE SAFETY REVERSE TEST AFTER ANY
ADJUSTMENT. Weather conditions may cause some
minor changes in the door operation, requiring some
readjustments, particularly during the first year of
operation.
THE SAFETY REVERSE SYSTEM IS IMPORTANT (SEE
GARAGE DOOR MUST REVERSE ON CONTACT WITH
A 1-lNCH OBSTACLE PLACED ON THE FLOOR.
FAILURE TO PROPERLY ADJUST OPENER MAY
RESULT IN SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY FROM A
CLOSING GARAGE DOOR.
Any new remotes must be set to the same code as the
original remote. Code setting procedures are described on
page 23.
REMOTE CONTROL BATTERY: The 12 Volt battery
should produce power for at least one year. As long as
there is adequate power, the transmitter battery test light
will glow when the push button is pressed (and the opener
will operate). When the light becomes dim or does not
come on, replace the battery. If transmission range
lessens, check the battery test light.

Follow instructions which apply to your door
type as illustrated.
SECTIONAL DOORS INSTALLATION
Make sure garage door is closed tight. Pull the manual release handle to disconnect the trolley. Manually
move outer trolley back to the center of inner trolley as shown in Figures A, B and C.
FIG A: Fasten straight door arm section to outer trolley
with a clevis pin. Secure the connection with a ring
fastener.
Fasten curved section to the door bracket in the same
way.
FIG B: Bring arm sections together. Find two pairs of
holes that line up and join sections. Select holes as far
apart as possible to increase door arm rigidity.
FIG C: If holes in curved arm are ABOVE holes in
straight arm, disconnect straight arm. Cut about 6"
from the solid end. Reconnect to trolley with CUT END
DOWN as shown.
Bring arm sections together. Find two pairs of holes
that line up and join with screws, lock washers and
nuts.
Proceed to Step 1, page 20. Trolley will re-engage automatically when opener is operated.
18
ALL ONE-PIECE DOORS
ASSEMBLE DOOR ARM: Fasten straight and curved
door arm sections together to their longest possible
length. With door closed, connect straight door arm
section to door bracket with a clevis pin. Secure with a
ring fastener.
Before connecting door arm to trolley, limits of travel must be adjusted on one-piece doors. Limit
adjustment screws are located on left side panel as shown in illustration on Page 20. Follow procedures
below.
ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES
CLOSED DOOR ADJUSTMENT
OPEN DOOR ADJUSTMENT
Decrease UP limit. Turn UP limit adjustment screw
counterclockwise 4 complete turns.
Decrease DOWN limit. Turn DOWN limit adjustment
screw clockwise 8 complete turns.
Press door control button. Trolley will travel to full open
position.
Press door control button. Trolley will travel to full
closed position.
Manually raise door arm to open position (parallel to
floor) and lift door arm to trolley. The arm should touch
trolley just in back of door arm connector hole as
shown in solid line drawing. If arm does not extend far
enough, adjust limit further. One full turn equals 2" of
door travel.
Manually close door and lift door arm to trolley. The
arm should touch trolley just ahead of door arm
connector hole as shown in dotted line drawing. If arm
is behind the connector hole, adjust limit further. One
full turn equals 2" of door travel.
CONNECT DOOR ARM TO TROLLEY: With door closed, join curved arm to connector hole in trolley with remaining
clevis pin. Secure with ring fastener. NOTE: It may be necessary to lift door slightly to make connection.
Run opener through a complete travel cycle. If door has a slight 'backward' slant in full open position, decrease UP
limits until door is parallel to floor.
19
ADJUSTMENT STEP 1
Adjust UP and DOWN Limits
LIMIT ADJUSTMENT settings regulate the points at
which the door will stop when moving up or down.
NOTE: Door STOPS in the UP direction if anything
interferes with door travel. Door REVERSES in the
DOWN direction if anything interferes with the door
travel (including binding or unbalanced doors).
PROCEDURE: To operate the opener, press the Door
Control Button. Run the opener through a COMPLETE
TRAVEL CYCLE. No limit adjustments are necessary
when the door opens and closes completely and doesn't
reverse unintentionally when fully closed.
THE FOLLOWING CHART OUTLINES ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES. RUN THE OPENER THROUGH A
COMPLETE TRAVEL CYCLE AFTER EACH ADJUSTMENT.
NOTE: REPEATED OPERATION OF THE OPENER DURING ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES MAY CAUSE
MOTOR TO OVERHEAT AND SHUT OFF. SIMPLY WAIT 15 MINUTES AND TRY AGAIN.
Read the chart carefully before proceeding to Step 2. Use a screwdriver to make limit adjustments.
LIMIT ADJUSTMENT CHART
IF DOOR DOES NOT OPEN COMPLETELY
BUT OPENS AT LEAST FIVE FEET
IF ONE-PIECE DOOR DOES NOT
CLOSE COMPLETELY
Increase UP travel. Turn the UP LIMIT adjustment
screw clockwise. One turn equals 2" of travel.
Increase DOWN travel. Turn down limit adjustment
screw counterclockwise. One turn equals 2 inches of
travel.
If door does not open at least 5 feet: adjust UP
(OPEN) FORCE as explained in Step 2.
IF OPENER REVERSES IN FULLY
CLOSED POSITION.
Decrease DOWN travel. Turn down limit adjustment
screw clockwise. One turn equals 2 inches of travel.
IF DOOR DOES NOT CLOSE COMPLETELY
Increase DOWN travel. Turn down limit adjustment
screw counterclockwise. One turn equals 2" of travel.
IF DOOR REVERSES WHEN CLOSING AND THERE
IS NO INTERFERENCE TO TRAVEL CYCLE
If the door still will not close completely, the header
bracket is positioned too high. See Step 1, page 10.
Test door for binding: Pull manual release handle.
Manually open and close door. If door is binding, call a
door serviceman. If door is not binding or unbalanced,
adjust DOWN (CLOSE) FORCE. See Step 2.
20
DO NOT USE 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.
ADJUSTMENT STEP 2
Adjust Force
Force Adjustment Controls are located on rear panel of
opener. FORCE ADJUSTMENT settings regulate amount
of the power required to open and close door.
NOTE: The door STOPS in the UP direction if
anything interferes with its travel. Door REVERSES
in the DOWN direction if anything interferes with its
travel (including binding or unbalanced doors).
If the force adjustments are set too light, door travel may
be interrupted by nuisance reversals in DOWN direction
and stops in UP direction. Weather conditions can affect
the door movement, so occasional adjustment may be
needed.
Maximum force adjustment range is 260 degrees, about
3/4 of a complete turn. Do not force controls beyond that
point. Turn force adjustment controls with a screwdriver.
Adjustment Label
FORCE ADJUSTMENT CHART
IF DOOR DOESN'T OPEN AT LEAST 5 FEET
TEST DOWN (CLOSE) FORCE
Grasp the door handle or door bottom when door is
about halfway through DOWN (CLOSE) TRAVEL. Door
should reverse. If the door is hard to hold or doesn't
reverse, decrease DOWN (CLOSE) FORCE by turning
the control in a counterclockwise direction. Make 10
degree turn adjustments until door reverses normally.
After each adjustment, run opener through a
complete cycle.
Increase UP (OPEN) FORCE by turning the control in a
clockwise direction. Make 10 degree turn adjustments until
door opens completely. Readjust UP LIMIT if necessary.
After each adjustment, run opener through a complete
travel cycle.
IF DOOR REVERSES DURING DOWN
(CLOSE) CYCLE
Increase DOWN (CLOSE) FORCE by turning control
clockwise. Make 10 degree turn adjustments until door
completes close cycle. After each adjustment, run the
opener through a complete travel cycle.
PROCEED TO STEP 3
21
ADJUSTMENT STEP 3
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 ONCE A MONTH AND
ADJUST AS NEEDED.
Test Safety Reverse System
PROCEDURE: Place-a one-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 18/19.
When the door reverses on the one-inch obstacle,
remove the obstruction and run the opener through a
complete travel cycle.
Door MUST NOT reverse in closed position. Repeat
Adjustment Steps 1, 2 and 3 if necessary.
REPEAT ADJUSTMENT STEP 3 AFTER:
• EACH ADJUSTMENT OF DOOR ARM LENGTH, CLOSE
FORCE OR DOWN LIMIT.
• ANY REPAIR OR ADJUSTMENT OF GARAGE DOOR
(INCLUDING SPRINGS AND HARDWARE).
• ANY REPAIR OR BUCKLING OF THE GARAGE FLOOR R.
• ANY REPAIR OR ADJUSTMENT OF THE GARAGE DOOR
OPENER.
THE PROTECTOR SYSTEM PROVIDES AN ADDITIONAL
MEASURE OF SAFETY AGAINST A SMALL CHILD BEING
CAUGHT UNDER A GARAGE DOOR. It uses an invisible beam
which, when broken by an obstruction, causes a closing door to
open and prevents an open door from closing. STRONGLY
RECOMMENDED FOR HOMEOWNERS WITH YOUNG
CHILDREN.
THE PROTECTOR SYSTEM

OPENER DOESN'T OPERATE
FROM EITHER THE DOOR
CONTROL BUTTON OR REMOTE
CONTROL TRANSMITTER
Review Pages 2 and 3 Before Proceeding
PROBABLE CAUSE & SOLUTION
1. Have you disengaged all door locks? Review Step 7, page 16.
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). If opener runs, check for a
faulty wire connection at door control button or a short under staples.
OPENER OPERATES FROM
REMOTE CONTROL BUT
NOT FROM DOOR CONTROL

DOOR OPERATES FROM
DOOR CONTROL PUSH BUTTON
BUT NOT FROM THE REMOTE
CONTROL TRANSMITTER
REMOTE CONTROL TRANSMITTER
HAS SHORT RANGE
1. Is door control push button lit? If not, refer to No. 5 above and follow same procedure.
2. Are wiring connections correct? Review Step 5, page 14 or 15.
1. Is the LOCK Switch ON? (Models 1160 and 1150) Turn it OFF.
2. Does the battery test light glow when remote control push button is pressed? If not, replace
the battery.
3. If you have two remote controls and only one operates, review the code setting procedures on
page 23. ALL remote controls must be set to same code.
1. Check battery test light. If the light is dim, change the battery.
2. Change the location of the remote control in the car.
3. A metal garage door or foil-backed insulation or metal siding will reduce the transmission
range.
4. Check to be sure antenna on the back 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 23.
2. Check to be sure that the remote control push button is not stuck in the 'down' position.
3. Remove bell wire from opener terminals and operate from remote control only. If this solves
the problem, the door control is faulty (replace), or there is a short or broken wire between door
control button and opener.
DOOR DOESN'T OPEN
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
