Review all safety warnings on Page
one of your garage door operator
owner’s manual. Ensure that the door
and all its operating gear is in good
condition and works easily when it is
manually operated.
Lubricate all garage door working parts before installing
the door arm. Ensure that the timber or metal garage door
frame on both sides and above the door is in good and
sound condition and is securely fixed to the main
structure of the garage. If there is any doubt, consult a
professional garage door installer. (See the Yellow Pages
under Garage Doors)
Do not run the operator until installation is complete.

You may find it helpful to refer to the applicable
illustration as you proceed with the installation of your
14
garage door operator and The Chamberlain Arm™. The
garage door opener must be installed parallel to the floor.
15
Follow rail assembly instructions as shown in the Owner's
manual. Note: For the best operating result of canopy doors,
use only 3-sections of the 4-piece rail or add a rail support
bracket as shown (16). Make sure rail support bracket does
not interfere with the trolley movement (Purchase part no.
600121). If 3 rails sections are used, the chain (belt) must be
cut by the same amount. For belts, a new belt clip is
recommended (Purchase part no. 041B5669).

Header Bracket Installation
For pre-hung canopy garage doors
For doors either pre-hung in a metal frame or supplied
with a metal frame for self-assembly, ensure header
bracket is located as shown below:
For a canopy door, the instructions (Figures 2A & 2B)
replace Step 13 in the Owner’s manual which refer to
positioning the header bracket. If you have an inward
facing lintel, which does not allow the header bracket to
be fitted directly above the garage door, you should see
Figure 16 & text with this instruction. For dual track
doors, install the header bracket 50mm (2”) above the
high point of door travel as shown in the Owner’s
manual.

Proceed with Steps 14 in your Owner’s Manual. Replace Step
15 in the Owner’s Manual with the following instructions. Raise
the operator until the rail is horizontal. The rail should be parallel
to the floor. Temporarily support the operator using a step ladder.
Continue with Steps 16 through 18 in the Owner’s Manual. In
Step 15, the removal of 25mm (1”) board does not apply to
canopy doors. After Step 18 is completed, proceed to page 4 in
this manual to begin the installation of the Chamberlain Arm™.

1. Select the two bottom holes in the door arm that will
allow the screws to go into a cross bracing support of
the door (Figure 13). Door may REQUIRE
ADDITIONAL bracing to provide suitable support.
2. Mark and drill two 4.5mm (3/16") holes. Use the proper
screws provided.
The centerline of the garage door opener and the
centerline of the door arm should match to prevent
binding of the arm in operation.
3. Recheck and if not aligned, correct.
4. With the door fully closed, slide outer trolley (with
extension arm connected), against door arm. Line up
the extension arm and insert into slot in door arm
(Figure 14).
Note: Do not move the door arm to meet the extension
arm—move the extension arm to meet the angle of the
door arm.
5. Insert the two mounting bolts provided into holes as far
apart as possible and tighten (Figure 15).
6. Cut off the shipping cable tie to release the
mechanism (Figure 14 and Figure 15).

Open the garage door slowly and carefully by hand.
Watch the movement of the door arm. If the Chamberlain
Door Arm hits the rail before the garage door is fully
open, the angle of the arms must change. Close the
garage door and use another hole to change the angle of
the system. Try again until the Chamberlain Door Arm
does not hit the rail anymore. In some cases raising the
operator head is quicker.

Initial Operation:
The Chamberlain Arm™ has been designed so that, when used
with a Chamberlain manufactured operator, the door will open to
a fully horizontal position (Figure 16).
Note: The door may be designed in such a way that it does not
open to the full horizontal. Adjust the UP limit so that the door
stops at a slightly downward angle when open.

FIGURE 16
Setting the limits and learning the force:
When returning to your Owner’s Manual, adjust the trolley travel
limits as follows:
1. With the inner and outer trolley sections still disconnected,
manually open your door to the horizontal position. Make a
mark on the rail where the end of trolley nearest to the
operator stops.
2. Manually close the door and mark the rail where the end of
the trolley nearest the door stops.
3. With the inner and outer trolley sections still disconnected,
activate the operator and adjust the limits following the
owners manual of the garage door opener, until the inner
trolley stops on the marks you made. For models ML700,
ML750, ML850 please read section #15, setting limits
manually as found in the HAVING A PROBLEM section in
your owner’s manual. While setting the door limits manually,
leave door and operator disconnected at all times.
4. Reconnect the inner and outer trolley sections so the door is
connected to the operator.
5. Force must be learned after completion of the limit settings.
For models ML700, ML750, ML850 please read section #26.
6. Run the operator again to ensure the door is opening and
closing correctly.

The Protector System™ (a safety reversing sensor
accessory) must be installed, if the Chamberlain
Arm is used (model 770E).
Continue with the instructions in your Owner’s Manual.
Having a problem?
1. Pull the manual release handle to disengage the trolley.
2. Lift the door about halfway. Release the door. It should stay in
place, supported entirely by its springs.
3. Raise and lower the door to see if there is any binding or
sticking. If your garage door binds, sticks or is out of balance,
call a professional garage door service engineer.
Note: Lubricate the inside and outside of the rail.
Note: In some cases you may find the door will not open fully
until the force has been set.
Note: In rare installations, the canopy door may touch the
operator rail when closing. This is NOT the fault of the operator
or arm. If this occurs:
1. Manually check the operation of the canopy door to ensure
that it is closing easily. The door must have a slight drop at
the start of closing.
2. If the door is not running easily, check that the side wires are
not catching or binding on the wire guides. Move the guides
until the wires run free.
3. Raise the operator head by about 50mm (2”) vertically so
there is a slight downward angle on the rail.
4. The door spring may be over tensioned.
