Install the Door Control
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. 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" 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 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:
• 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 top 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.
4. Strip 7/16" 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 (Figure 4).
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.
To prevent possible SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from
electrocution:

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.
CAUTION
WARNING
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.

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. This is a
required safety device and cannot be disabled.
CAUTION
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE SAFETY
REVERSING SENSOR
When properly connected and aligned, the safety
reversing 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" 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

(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.

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" of insulation from each set of wires.
Separate white and white/black wires sufficiently to
connect to the opener quick-connect terminals: white
to white and white/black to grey (Figure 6).

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 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. (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 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
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
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.
• 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 object (or 2x4 laid flat) on
floor.
CAUTION
Travel limits regulate the points at which the
door will stop when moving up or down. Follow
the steps below to set the limits.
WARNING
CAUTION
To prevent damage to vehicles, be sure fully open door
provides adequate clearance.
To program the travel limits:
1. 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).
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).
Check to be sure the door opens high enough for
your vehicle.
NOTE: Refer to previous page for correct door
position for one-piece door.
3. Push the remote control or door control (Figure 3).
This sets the UP (open) limit and begins closing
the door. Press either the black or purple button
before the door hits the floor. The door will stop.
Adjust the desired DOWN (close) limit position
using the black and purple buttons (Figure 4).
Check to be sure the door is fully closed without
applying excessive pressure on the rail (rail should
not bow upwards and the belt should not sag or
droop below the rail). Push the remote control or
door control (Figure 3). This sets the DOWN
(close) limit and begins opening the door.
NOTE: If neither the black nor the purple button is
pressed, the door will reverse off the floor and the
DOWN travel limit will be set automatically.

WARNING
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 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 object (or 2x4 laid flat) on
floor.
CAUTION
The force setting button is located on the back

(Figure 1).
2. Push the purple button twice to enter unit into
Force Adjustment Mode (Figure 2). The LED
(Indicator Light) will flash quickly.
3. Push the remote control or door control (Figure 3).
The door will travel to the DOWN (close) position.
Push the remote control or door control 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 unit 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 unit 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.”

HAVING A PROBLEM?
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.
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.
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.
2. Opener operates from the remote, but not from
the Door Control:
• Is the door control lit? If not, reverse the wires. 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.
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 89LM can be installed. This
kit was designed to minimize vibration to the house
and is easy to install.
29
Having a Problem? (Continued)
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.
14. 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.
15. 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
