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
• 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.
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 11 – Depending upon garage
construction, extension brackets or wood blocks may
be needed to install sensors.
• Installation Step 11 – Alternate floor mounting of the
safety reversing sensor will require hardware not
provided.
SECTIONAL DOOR INSTALLATIONS
• Do you have a steel, aluminum, fiberglass or glass
panel door? If so, horizontal and vertical reinforcement
is required (Installation Step 12).
• 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 (1.2 m) to the left or right of the door
center. See Installation Steps 1 and 12.
• If your door is more than 7 feet (2.1 m) high, see rail
extension kits listed on Accessories page.

ASSEMBLY STEP 1
Assemble the Rail and 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
3-1/2" (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.

(optional)
Installation procedures vary according to garage door
types. Follow the instructions which apply to your door.
1. Close the door and mark the inside vertical centerline
of the garage door.
2. Extend the line onto the header wall above the door.
You can fasten the header bracket within 4 feet
(1.22 m) of the left or right of the door center only
if a torsion spring or center bearing plate is in the
way; or you can attach it to the ceiling (see
page 13) when clearance is minimal. (It may be
mounted on the wall upside down if necessary, to
gain approximately 1/2" (1 cm).)
If you need to install the header bracket on a 2x4
(on wall or ceiling), use lag screws (not provided)
to securely fasten the 2x4 to structural supports as
shown here and on page 13.
3. Open your door to the highest point of travel as shown.
Draw an intersecting horizontal line on the header wall
above the high point:
• 2" (5 cm) above the high point for sectional door and
one-piece door with track.
• 8" (20 cm) above the high point for one-piece door
without track.
This height will provide travel clearance for the top
edge of the door.
NOTE: If the total number of inches exceeds the
height available in your garage, use the maximum
height possible, or refer to page 13 for ceiling
installation.

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.
Three representative installations are shown. Yours may
be different. Hanging brackets should be angled
(Figure 1) to provide rigid support. On finished ceilings
(Figures 2 and 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.

To prevent possible SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from
electrocution:
• Disconnect ALL electric and battery power BEFORE
performing ANY service or maintenance.
• 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 controls.
• 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, away from moving parts of door and door
hardware. If installing into drywall, drill 5/32" holes and
use the anchors provided. For pre-wired installations
(as in new home construction), it may be mounted to a
single gang box (Figure 2).
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 2 and white/red
wire to the 1.
2. Remove cover by gently prying at slot in top of the
cover with a small flat head screwdriver. Fasten with
6ABx1-1/4" self-tapping screws (drywall installation) or
6-32x1" machine screws (into gang box) as follows:
• 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.
• Drill and install top screw with care to avoid cracking
plastic housing. Do not overtighten.
• Insert top tabs and snap on cover.
3. (For 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. Strip 7/16" (11 mm) of insulation from end of bell wire.
Connect bell wire to the quick-connect terminals as
follows: white to white and white/red to red.
5. Position the antenna wire as shown.
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

Electrical Requirements
To prevent possible SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from
electrocution or fire:
• Disconnect ALL electric and battery power BEFORE
performing ANY service or maintenance.
• 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.

INSTALLATION STEP 11
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.

• 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

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

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 21.
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.

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 13.

ADJUSTMENT STEP 1
Program the 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.
• NEVER use force adjustments to compensate for a binding
or sticking garage door.
• After ANY adjustments are made, the safety reversal system
MUST be tested. Door MUST reverse on contact with
1-1/2"vd(3.8 cm) high object (or 2x4 laid flat) on floor.
Travel limits regulate the points at which the door
will stop when moving up or down. Follow the steps
below to set the limits.

To prevent damage to vehicles, be sure fully open door
provides adequate clearance.
To program the travel limits:
Adjust the position of the door by using the black and
purple buttons. Black moves the door UP (open) and
purple moves the door DOWN (close).
1. Setting the UP position: Press and hold the black
button until the yellow indicator light starts flashing
slowly then release.
2. Push and hold the black button until the door reaches
the desired UP (open) position (Figure 2).
NOTE: Check to be sure the door opens high enough for
your vehicle.
3. Push the remote control or door control (Figure 3).
This sets the UP (open) limit and begins closing the
door.
4. Immediately when the door begins to move down,
press and release either the black or purple button.
This will stop the door.
5. Setting the DOWN position: Push and hold the
purple button until the door reaches the desired
DOWN (closed) position (Figure 4).
6. Once the door is closed, if there appears to have too
much pressure on the door, you may toggle the door
back and forth using the black and purple buttons to
reach the desired closed position.
7. Push the remote control or the door control (Figure 3).
This sets the DOWN (close) limit and should bring the
door to the open position.
• If the opener is not stopping exactly where you
would like it, repeat steps 1 through 7 and program
the limits again.
• When the unit stops in both the desired up (open)
and down (close) positions, proceed to
Adjustment Step 2, Setting the Force.

ADJUSTMENT STEP 2
Setting 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 use adjustments to compensate for a binding or
sticking garage door.
• After ANY adjustments are made, the safety reversal system
MUST be tested. Door MUST reverse on contact with 1-1/2"
(3.8 cm) high object (or 2x4 laid flat) on floor.
The force setting button is located on the left panel
of the motor unit. The force setting measures the
amount of force required to open and close the door.

3. Push the remote control or door control (Figure 2).
The door will travel to the DOWN (close) position.
Push the remote control or control console again, the
door will travel to the UP (open) position. Push the
remote control or door control a third time to send the
door to the DOWN (close) position.
The LED (Indicator Light) will stop flashing when the
force has been learned.
The opener has learned the forces required to open and
close your door.
The door must travel through a complete cycle, UP and
DOWN, in order for the force to be set properly. If the
opener cannot open and close your door fully, inspect
your door to insure that it is balanced properly and is not
sticking or binding. See page 3, “Preparing your
garage door.”

or KILLED by a closing garage door.
• Safety reversal system MUST be tested every month.
• 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. Complete Adjustment
Steps 1 and 2 Programming the Limits and Forces.
NOTE: On a sectional door, make sure limit
adjustments do not force the door arm beyond a
straight up and down position. See Figure 3, page 26.
• Repeat the test.
• When the door reverses on the 1-1/2" (3.8 cm) board
(or 2x4 laid flat), 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.
