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.

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.

CAUTION
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 stop, insert a screwdriver into the hole
10" (25 cm) from the front end 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.

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.
CAUTION
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.

• 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

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 amber 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.

WARNING
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 1-1/2"
high (3.8 cm) object (or 2x4 laid flat) on floor.
CAUTION
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. 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.
WARNING
CAUTION
To prevent damage to vehicles, be sure fully open door
provides adequate clearance.
Cover Protection Bolt

(5 cm10 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 2" (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 2" (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 2" (5 cm) of travel.

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 1-1/2"
high (3.8 cm) object (or 2x4 laid flat) on floor.
CAUTION
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.

ADJUSTMENT STEP 3
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.
CAUTION
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.
