Preparing your garage door
Before you begin:
• Disable locks.
• Remove any ropes connected to garage door.
• Complete the following test to make sure your
garage door is balanced and is not sticking or binding:
1. Lift the door about halfway as shown. Release the
door. If balanced, it should stay in place, supported
entirely by its springs.
2. Raise and lower the door to see if there is any
binding or sticking.
If your door binds, sticks, or is out of balance, call a
trained door systems technician.
To prevent possible SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH:
• ALWAYS call a trained door systems technician if garage
door binds, sticks, or is out of balance. An unbalanced
garage door may not reverse when required.
• NEVER try to loosen, move or adjust garage door, door
springs, cables, pulleys, brackets or their hardware, all of
which are under EXTREME tension.
• Disable ALL locks and remove ALL ropes connected to
garage door BEFORE installing and operating garage door
opener to avoid entanglement.
To prevent damage to garage door and opener:
• ALWAYS disable locks BEFORE installing and operating the
opener.
• ONLY operate garage door opener at 120V, 60 Hz to avoid
malfunction and damage.

Planning
Identify the type and height of your garage door. Survey
your garage area to see if any of the conditions below
apply to your installation. Additional materials may be
required. You may find it helpful to refer back to this page
and the accompanying illustrations as you proceed with
the installation of your opener.
Depending on your requirements, there are several
installation steps which may call for materials or hardware
not included in the carton.
• Installation Step 1 – Look at the wall or ceiling above
the garage door. The header bracket must be securely
fastened to structural supports.
• Installation Step 5 – Do you have a finished ceiling in
your garage? If so, a support bracket and additional
fastening hardware may be required.
• Installation Step 10 – Depending upon garage
construction, extension brackets or wood blocks may be
needed to install sensors.
• Installation Step 10 – Alternate floor mounting of the
safety reversing sensor will require hardware not
provided.
• Do you have an access door in addition to the garage
door? If not, Model 7702CB Emergency Key Release is
required. See Accessories page.
• Look at the garage door where it meets the floor. Any
gap between the floor and the bottom of the door must
not exceed 1/4" (6 mm). Otherwise, the safety reversal
system may not work properly. See Adjustment Step 3.
Floor or door should be repaired.
SECTIONAL DOOR INSTALLATIONS
• Do you have a steel, aluminum, fiberglass or glass
panel door? If so, horizontal and vertical
reinforcement is required (Installation Step 11).
• The opener should be installed above the center of the
door. If there is a torsion spring or center bearing plate
in the way of the header bracket, it may be installed
within 4 feet (1.22 m) to the left or right of the door
center. See Installation Steps 1 and 11.
• If your door is more than 7 feet (2.13 m) high, see rail
extension kits listed on Accessories page.

ASSEMBLY STEP 1
Assemble the Rail & Install the Trolley
To prevent INJURY from pinching, keep hands and fingers
away from the joints while assembling the rail.
To avoid installation difficulties, do not run the
garage door opener until instructed to do so.
The front rail has a cut out “window” at the door end (see
illustration). The hole above this window is larger on
the top of the rail than on the bottom. A smaller hole 31/2" (8.9 cm) away is close to the rail edge. Rotate the
back rail so it has a similar hole close to the opposite
edge, about 4-3/4" (12 cm) from the far end.
1. Remove the straight door arm and hanging bracket
packaged inside the front rail and set aside for
Installation Step 5 and 12. NOTE: To prevent INJURY
while unpacking the rail carefully remove the straight
door arm stored within the rail section.
2. Align the rail sections on a flat surface as shown and
slide the tapered ends into the larger ones. Tabs along
the side will lock into place.
3. Place the motor unit on packing material to protect the
cover, and rest the back end of the rail on top. For
convenience, put a support under the front end of the
rail.
4. As a temporary trolley stop, insert a screwdriver into the
hole 10" (25 cm) away from the front of the rail, as
shown.
5. Check to be sure there are 4 plastic wear pads inside
the inner trolley. If they became loose during shipping,
check all packing material. Snap them back into position
as shown.
6. Slide the trolley assembly along the rail from the back
end to the screwdriver.

opener, fasten it SECURELY to structural supports of the
garage. Concrete anchors MUST be used if installing any
brackets into masonry.
Three representative installations are shown. Yours may
be different. Hanging brackets should be angled (Figure 1)
to provide rigid support. On finished ceilings (Figure 2 and
Figure 3), 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 bolts, 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.
NOTE: DO NOT connect power to opener at this time.

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 (1.5 m), 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 door at a minimum
height of 5 feet (1.5 m) where small children cannot
reach, and away from moving parts of door and door
hardware. The installation surface must be smooth and
flat. If installing into drywall (Figure 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 (Figure 2). NOTE: After installation, a green or
amber 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 7/16" (11 mm) 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 WHT and white/red
wire to the RED (Figure 3).
2. Remove cover by gently prying on a side corner near
the top of the cover with a small flat head screwdriver
(Figure 4). Fasten with 6ABx1-1/4" self-tapping screws
(drywall installation) or 6-32x1" machine screws (into
gang box) as follows:
• Drill and install bottom screw, allowing 1/8" (3 mm) 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.
NOTE: The push bar may stick if the door control is not
mounted on a smooth surface. If a click is not heard
when pressing the push bar, loosen the two mounting
screws or relocate the door control to a smoother
surface.
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. 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 17.
4. Insert all wires through the opening on top of motor unit
above the terminal block on the back panel (Figure 4).
5. Strip 7/16" (11 mm) of insulation from each set of bell
wires. Connect bell wires to the quick-connect terminals
as follows: white to white and white/red to red; white to
white and white/black to grey (Figure 5).
NOTE: When connecting multiple door controls to the
opener, twist same color wires together. Insert wires into
quick-connect holes: white to white and red/white to red.
6. 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 20.

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"
(2.5 cm) 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 (1.83 m)
above the floor. Ensure that the rope and handle clear
the tops of all vehicles to avoid entanglement. 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.

Electrical Requirements
To prevent possible SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from
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.

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

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" (15 cm) 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 amber 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" (15 cm) 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.
Safety Reversing Sensor
6" (15 cm) 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"
(15 cm) above the floor. They may be installed in one of
three ways, as follows.

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.

Bracket
Wall installation (Figure 2 & 3):
• 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, no higher than 6" (15 cm) 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.

brackets, with lenses pointing toward each other across
the door. Be sure the lens is not obstructed by a
bracket extension (Figure 5).
• 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 7/16" (11 mm) of insulation from each set of wires.
Separate white and white/black wires sufficiently to
connect to the opener quick-connect terminals. Twist
like colored wires together. Insert wires into
quick-connect holes: white to white and white/black to
grey (Figure 6).

TROUBLESHOOTING THE SAFETY
REVERSING 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 opener 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. See page 20.
ALIGNING THE SAFETY REVERSING 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
Fiberglass, aluminum or lightweight steel garage doors WILL
REQUIRE reinforcement BEFORE installation of door bracket.
Contact your door manufacturer for reinforcement kit.
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.

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 1-1/2"
high (3.8 cm) 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
(Adjustment Step 3, page 29).
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.
To prevent damage to vehicles, be sure fully open door
provides adequate clearance.

(5-10 cm)
HOW AND WHEN TO ADJUST THE LIMITS
• If the door does not open completely but opens at
least five feet (1.5 m):
Increase up travel. Turn the UP limit adjustment screw
clockwise. One turn equals 3" (7.5 cm) of travel.
NOTE: To prevent the trolley from hitting the cover
protection bolt, keep a minimum distance of 2-4"
(5 cm - 10 cm) between the trolley and the bolt.
Left Panel
• If door does not open at least 5 feet (1.5 m):
Adjust the UP (open) force as explained in Adjustment
Step 2.
Limit Adjustment Screws
ADJUSTMENT LABEL
• If the door does not close completely:
Increase down travel. Turn the down limit adjustment
screw counterclockwise. One turn equals 3" (7.5 cm) of
travel.
If door still won't close completely and the trolley bumps
into the pulley bracket (page 4), try lengthening the
door arm (page 25) 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 22.
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 (close) force. See Adjustment Step 2.
• If the opener reverses in fully closed position:
Decrease down travel. Turn the down limit adjustment
screw clockwise. One turn equals 3" (7.5 cm) of travel.

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 1-1/2"
high (3.8 cm) object (or 2x4 laid flat) on floor.
Force adjustment controls are located on the right 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 1-1/2" (3.8 cm)
obstruction. See Adjustment Step 3, page 29. 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 (1.5 m),
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 1-1/2"
high (3.8 cm) object (or 2x4 laid flat) on the floor.
TEST
• With the door fully open, place a 1-1/2" (3.8 cm) 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 25.
• Repeat the test.
• When the door reverses on the 1-1/2" (3.8 cm) board,
remove the obstruction and run the opener through 3 or
4 complete travel cycles to test adjustment.
• If the unit continues to fail the Safety Reverse Test, call
for a trained door systems technician.
IMPORTANT SAFETY CHECK:
Test the Safety Reverse System 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.

was set to a certain number of openings, remember that the
test has used up one opening. To clear the temporary
password, repeat steps 1-3, setting the number of hours or
times to 0 in step 3.
One Button Close: Opener can be closed by pressing only
the ENTER button if the one button close feature has been
activated. This feature has been activated at the factory. To
activate or deactivate this feature press and hold buttons 1
and 9 for 10 seconds. The keypad will blink twice when the
one button close is active. The keypad will blink four times
when one button close is deactivated.
To set a temporary PIN
You may authorize access by visitors or service people with
a temporary 4-digit PIN. After a programmed number of
hours or number of accesses, this temporary PIN expires
and will no longer open the door. It can be used to close the
door even after it has expired. To set a temporary PIN:
1. Press the four buttons for your personal entry PIN (not the
last temporary PIN), then press and hold the ✽ button.
The opener light will blink three times. Release the button.
2. Press the temporary 4-digit PIN you have chosen, then
press Enter.
The opener light will blink four times.
