WARNING
INSTALLATION STEP 5
Hang the Opener
To avoid possible SERIOUS INJURY from a falling
garage door opener, fasten it SECURELY to structural
supports of the garage. Concrete anchors MUST be used
if installing any brackets into masonry.
Two representative installations are shown. Yours
may be different. Hanging brackets should be angled
(Figure 1) to provide rigid support. On finished
ceilings (Figure 2), attach a sturdy metal bracket to
structural supports before installing the opener. This
bracket and fastening hardware are not provided.
1. Measure the distance from each side of the motor
unit to the structural support.
2. Cut both pieces of the hanging bracket to required
lengths.
3. Drill 3/16" pilot holes in the structural supports.
4. Attach one end of each bracket to a support with
5/16"-18x1-7/8" lag screws.
5. Fasten the opener to the hanging brackets with
5/16"-18x7/8" hex screws, lock washers and nuts.
6. Check to make sure the rail is centered over the
door (or in line with the header bracket if the
bracket is not centered above the door).
7. Remove the 2x4. Operate the door manually. If
the door hits the rail, raise the header bracket.
8. Grease the top and underside of the rail surface
where the trolley slides with rail grease.

WARNING
INSTALLATION STEP 6
Install the Door Control
To prevent possible serious injury or death from
electrocution:
• Be sure power is not connected before installing door
control.
• Connect only to 24 VOLT low voltage wires.
To prevent possible serious injury or death from a closing
garage door:
• Install door control within sight of garage door, out of
reach of children at a minimum height of 5 feet, and
away from all moving parts of door.
• Never permit children to operate or play with door
control push buttons or remote control transmitters.
• Activate door only when it can be seen clearly, is
properly adjusted, and there are no obstructions to door
travel.
• Always keep garage door in sight until completely
closed. Never permit anyone to cross path of closing
garage door.
Locate door control within sight of the door at a
minimum height of 5 feet where small children
cannot reach, and away from moving parts of the
door and door hardware. If installing into drywall
(Fig. 1), drill 5/32" holes and use anchors provided.
For pre-wired installations (as in new home
construction), it may be mounted to a single gang
box (Fig. 2). 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).
1. Strip 1/4" of insulation from one end of bell wire
and connect to the two screw terminals on back of
door control by color: white wire to 2 and white/red
wire to 1 (Fig. 3).
2. Remove white cover by gently pushing both
thumbs against upper corners of cover on back
side of door control (Fig. 4). Fasten with
6ABx1-1/4"self-tapping screws (standard
installation) or 6-32x1" machine screws (into gang
box) as follows:
• Drill and install bottom screw, allowing 1//8" to
protrude above wall surface.
• Position bottom of door control on screw head
and slide down to secure. Adjust screw for snug
fit.
• Install top screw with care to avoid
cracking plastic housing. Do not overtighten.
• Insert bottom tabs and snap on cover. (To
remove cover after mounting, gently pry at top
with paper clip or small flat head screwdriver.)
3. (Standard installation only) Run bell wire up wall
and across ceiling to motor unit. Use insulated
staples to secure wire in several places. Do not
pierce wire with a staple, creating a short or open
circuit.
4. Connect bell wire to the opener terminal screws as
follows: white to 2 and white/red to 1. (Fig. 5).
5. Use tacks or staples to permanently attach
entrapment warning label to wall near door control,
and manual release/safety reverse test label in a
prominent location on inside of garage door.
NOTE: 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 and properly
aligned. See Safety Reversing Sensor Instructions
beginning on page 17.

Attach the Emergency Release
Rope and Handle
• To prevent possible SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from
a falling garage door:
– If possible, use emergency release handle to
disengage trolley ONLY when garage door is
CLOSED. Weak or broken springs or unbalanced
door could result in an open door falling rapidly
and/or unexpectedly.
– NEVER use emergency release handle unless garage
doorway is clear of persons and obstructions.
• NEVER use handle to pull door open or closed. If rope
knot becomes untied, you could fall.
• Thread one end of the rope through the hole in the
top of the red handle so "NOTICE" reads right side
up as shown. Secure with an overhand knot at
least 1" from the end of the rope to prevent
slipping.
• Thread the other end of the rope through the hole
in the release arm of the outer trolley.
• Adjust rope length so the handle is 6 feet above
the floor. Secure with an overhand knot.
NOTE: If it is necessary to cut the rope, heat seal
the cut end with a match or lighter to prevent
unraveling.

electrocution or fire:
• Be sure power is not connected to the opener, and
disconnect power to circuit BEFORE removing cover to
establish permanent wiring connection.
• Garage door installation and wiring MUST be in
compliance with all local electrical and building codes.
• NEVER use an extension cord, 2-wire adapter, or
change plug in any way to make it fit outlet. Be sure
the opener is grounded.
To avoid installation difficulties, do not run the
opener at this time.
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.
PERMANENT WIRING
CONNECTION
RIGHT
WRONG
If permanent wiring is required by your local
code, refer to the following procedure.
To make a permanent connection through the 7/8"
hole in the top of the motor unit:
• Remove the motor unit cover screws and set the
cover aside.
• Remove the attached 3-prong cord.
• Connect the black (line) wire to the screw on the
brass terminal; the white (neutral) wire to the
screw on the silver terminal; and the ground wire
to the green ground screw. The opener must be
grounded.
• Reinstall the cover.
To avoid installation difficulties, do not run the
opener at this time.

WARNING
INSTALLATION STEP 10
Install The Protector System®
• Be sure power is not connected to the garage door
opener BEFORE installing the safety reversing sensor.
• To prevent SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from a closing
garage door:
– Correctly connect and align the safety reversing
sensor. This required safety device MUST NOT be
disabled.
– Install the safety reversing sensor so beam is NO
HIGHER than 6" above garage floor.
The safety reversing sensor must be connected
and aligned correctly before the garage door
opener will move in the down direction.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT
THE SAFETY REVERSING SENSOR
When properly connected and aligned, the 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 lights will flash 10 times.
The units must be installed inside the garage so that
the sending and receiving eyes face each other
across the door, no more than 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
track of sectional garage doors without additional
hardware.
Sensor Beam
6" max.
above floor
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.

INSTALLING THE BRACKETS
Be sure power to the opener is disconnected.
Install and align the brackets so the sensors will face
each other across the garage door, with the beam no
higher than 6" above the floor. They may be installed
in one of three ways, as follows.

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, no higher than 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.

across the door. Be sure the lens is not obstructed
by a bracket extension. See Figure 4.
• Finger tighten the wing nuts.
• Run the wires from both sensors to the opener. Use
insulated staples to secure wire to wall and ceiling.
• Strip 1/4" of insulation from each set of wires.

TROUBLESHOOTING THE SAFETY SENSORS
1. If the sending eye indicator light does not glow
steadily after installation, check for:
• Electric power to the opener.
• A short in the white or white/black wires. These
can occur at 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 blink 10 times. (If bulbs are not
installed, 10 clicks can be heard.) See page 17.
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 readjust,
aiming directly at the receiving eye. Lock in place.
• Loosen the receiving eye wing nut and adjust
sensor until it receives the sender’s beam. When
the green indicator light glows steadily, tighten the
wing nut.

INSTALLATION STEP 11
Fasten the Door Bracket
To prevent damage to garage door, reinforce inside of
door with angle iron both vertically and horizontally.
Follow instructions which apply to your door type
as illustrated below or on the following page.
A horizontal reinforcement brace should be long
enough to be secured to two or three vertical
supports. A vertical reinforcement brace should
cover the height of the top panel.
Figure 1 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.
NOTE: Many door reinforcement kits provide for
direct attachment of the clevis pin and door arm. In
this case you will not need the door bracket; proceed
to Step 12.

ADJUSTMENT STEP 1
Adjust the UP and DOWN Travel
Limits
Without a properly installed safety reversal system,
persons (particularly small children) could be
SERIOUSLY INJURED or KILLED by a closing garage
door.
• Incorrect adjustment of garage door travel limits will
interfere with proper operation of safety reversal
system.
• If one control (force or travel limits) is adjusted, the
other control may also need adjustment.
• After any adjustments are made, the safety reversal
system MUST be tested. Door MUST reverse on
contact with one-inch high object (or 2x4 laid flat) on
floor.
Limit adjustment settings regulate the points at which
the door will stop when moving up or down.
To operate the opener, press the Door Control push
bar. 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 Adjustment Step 3, page 26).
Adjustment procedures are outlined below. Read the
procedures carefully before proceeding to
Adjustment Step 2. Use a screwdriver to make limit
adjustments. Run the opener through a complete
travel cycle after each adjustment.
NOTE: Repeated operation of the opener during
adjustment procedures may cause the motor to
overheat and shut off. Simply wait 15 minutes and
try again.
NOTE: If anything interferes with the door’s upward
travel, it will stop. If anything interferes with the
door’s downward travel (including binding or
unbalanced doors), it will reverse.
CAUTION
To prevent damage to vehicles, be sure fully open door
provides adequate clearance.

If door still won't close completely and the trolley
bumps into the pulley bracket (see page 4 or 5),
try lengthening the door arm (page 22) and
decreasing the down limit.
• 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 19.
Test the door for binding: Pull the emergency
release handle. Manually open and close the door.
If the door is binding or unbalanced, call for a
trained door systems technician. If the door is
balanced and not binding, adjust the DOWN

WARNING
ADJUSTMENT STEP 2
Adjust the Force
Without a properly installed safety reversal system,
persons (particularly small children) could be
SERIOUSLY INJURED or KILLED by a closing garage
door.
• Too much force on garage door will interfere with
proper operation of safety reversal system.
• NEVER increase force beyond minimum amount
required to close garage door.
• NEVER use force adjustments to compensate for a
binding or sticking garage door.
• If one control (force or travel limits) is adjusted, the
other control may also need adjustment.
• After any adjustments are made, the safety reversal
system MUST be tested. Door MUST reverse on
contact with one-inch high object (or 2x4 laid flat) on
floor.
Force adjustment controls are located on the back
panel of the motor unit. Force adjustment settings
regulate the amount of power required to open and
close the door.
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. Turn force adjustment controls
with a screwdriver.
NOTE: If anything interferes with the door’s upward
travel, it will stop. If anything interferes with the
door’s downward travel (including binding or
unbalanced doors), it will reverse.
HOW AND WHEN TO ADJUST THE FORCES
1. 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 Adjustment Step 3, 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 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.
2. 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 and opens fully. After each
adjustment, run the opener through a complete
travel 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.

Test the Safety Reversal System
Without a properly installed safety reversal system,
persons (particularly small children) could be
SERIOUSLY INJURED or KILLED by a closing garage
door.
• Safety reversal system MUST be tested every month.
• If one control (force or travel limits) is adjusted, the
other control may also need adjustment.
• After ANY adjustments are made, the safety reversal
system MUST be tested. Door MUST reverse on
contact with one-inch high object (or 2x4 laid flat) on
the floor.
TEST
• With the door fully open, place a one-inch board
(or a 2x4 laid flat) on the floor, centered under the
garage door.
• Operate the door in the down direction. The door
must reverse on striking the obstruction.
ADJUST
• If the door stops on the obstruction, it is not
traveling far enough in the down direction.
Increase the DOWN limit by turning the DOWN
limit adjustment screw counterclockwise 1/4 turn.
NOTE: On a sectional door, make sure limit
adjustments do not force the door arm beyond a
straight up and down position. See the illustration
on page 22.
• Repeat the test.
• When the door reverses on the one-inch board,
remove the obstruction and run the opener through
3 or 4 complete travel cycles to test adjustment.
IMPORTANT SAFETY CHECK:
Repeat Adjustment Steps 1, 2 and 3 after:
• Each adjustment of door arm length, limits, or
force controls.
• Any repair to or adjustment of the garage door
(including springs and hardware).
• Any repair to or buckling of the garage floor.
• Any repair to or adjustment of the opener.

readjustments, particularly
LIMIT CONTROLS
during the first year of operation.
(Left side panel)
Pages 24 and 25 refer to the
limit and force adjustments. Only
a screwdriver is required. Follow
the instructions carefully.
Repeat the safety reverse test FORCE CONTROLS
(page 26) after any adjustment (Back panel)
of limits or force.
1. The opener doesn't operate from either the
Door Control or the remote control:
• Does the opener have electric power? Plug a lamp
into the outlet. If it doesn't light, check the fuse box
or the circuit breaker. (Some outlets are controlled
by a wall switch.)
• Have you disabled all door locks? Review
installation instruction warnings on page 7.
• Is there a build-up of ice or snow under the door?
The door may be frozen to the ground. Remove
any restriction.
• The garage door spring may be broken. Have it
replaced.
• Repeated operation may have tripped the
overload protector in the motor. Wait 15 minutes
and try again.

MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Once a Month
• Manually operate door. If it is unbalanced or
binding, call a trained door systems technician.
• Check to be sure door opens & closes fully. Adjust
limits and/or force if necessary. (See pages 24
and 25.)
• Repeat the safety reverse test. Make any
necessary adjustments. (See page 26.)
Twice a Year
• Check chain tension. Disconnect trolley first. Adjust
if necessary (See page 7.)
Once a Year
• Oil door rollers, bearings and hinges. The opener
does not require additional lubrication. Do not
grease the door tracks.
2. Opener operates from the remote, but not from
the Door Control:
• Is the door control lit? If not, remove the bell wire
from the motor unit terminals. 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.
• Are the wiring connections correct? Review
Installation Step 6, page 14.
3. The door operates from the Door Control, but
not from the remote control:
• Is the door push bar flashing? If your model has
the Lock feature, make sure it is off.
• Program the opener to match the remote control
code. (Refer to instructions on the motor unit
panel.) Repeat with all remotes.
THE REMOTE CONTROL BATTERY
WARNING
4. The remote control has short range:
• Change the location of the remote control in your
car.
• Check to be sure the antenna on the side or back
panel of motor unit extends fully downward.
• Some installations may have shorter range due to
a metal door, foil backed insulation, or metal
garage siding.
To prevent possible SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH:
• NEVER allow small children near batteries.
• If battery swallowed, immediately notify doctor.
The lithium battery should produce
power for up to 5 years. To replace
battery, use the visor clip or
screwdriver blade to pry open
the case as shown. Insert
battery positive side up.
Dispose of old battery properly.
5. 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.
NOTICE: To comply with FCC and/or Industry Canada rules, adjustment or
modifications of this receiver and/or transmitter are prohibited, except for changing
the code setting or replacing the battery. THERE ARE NO OTHER USER
SERVICEABLE PARTS.
29
Having a Problem? (Continued)
11. 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
Installation Step 10.
6. The garage door opens and closes by itself:
• Be sure that all remote control push buttons are
off.
• Remove the bell wire from the door control
terminals and operate from the remote 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 motor unit.
• Clear memory and re-program all remote controls.
12. The opener lights don't turn on:
• Replace the light bulbs (75 watts maximum). Use a
standard neck garage door opener bulb if regular
bulb burns out.
13. The opener lights don't turn off:
• Is the Light feature on? Turn it off.
7. The door doesn't open completely:
• Is something obstructing the door? Is it out of
balance, or are the springs broken? Remove the
obstruction or repair the door.
• If the door is in good working order but now
doesn't open all the way, increase the up force.
See Adjustment Step 2.
• If the door opens at least 5 feet, the travel limits
may need to be increased. One turn equals 2
inches of travel. See Adjustment Step 1.
Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is
complete.
8. 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.
14. The opener strains or maximum force is
needed to operate door:
• The door may be out of balance or the springs
may be broken. Close the door and use the
emergency 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 a
trained door systems technician. Do not increase
the force to operate the opener.
15. The opener motor hums briefly, then won't
work:
• The garage door springs may be broken. See
above.
• 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.
9. The door opens but won't close:
• If the opener lights blink, check the safety
reversing sensor. See Installation Step 10.
• If the opener lights don’t 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.
16. The opener won't operate due to power
failure:
• Use the emergency 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.
• 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.
10. The door reverses for no apparent reason and
opener lights don’t blink:
• Is something obstructing the door? Pull the
emergency release handle. Operate the door
manually. If it is unbalanced or binding, call a
trained door systems technician.
• Clear any ice or snow from the garage floor area
where the door closes.
• Review Adjustment Step 2 on page 25.
• If door reverses in the fully closed position,
decrease the travel limits (Adjustment Step 1).
Repeat 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.
17. The chain droops or sags:
• It is normal for the chain to droop slightly in the
closed door position. Use the emergency release
rope and handle to disconnect the trolley. If the
chain returns to the normal height when the trolley
is disengaged, and the door reverses on a 2x4 laid
flat, no adjustments are needed. (See page 7.)
