WARNINGCAUTION
WARNING
An unbalanced garage door might not reverse
when required and someone under the door
could be seriously injured or killed.
If your garage door binds, sticks or is out of
balance, call for professional garage door
service. Garage doors, door springs, cables,
pulleys, brackets and their hardware are under
extreme tension and can cause serious injury
or death. Do not try to loosen, move or adjust
them yourself!
Ropes left on a garage door could cause
someone to become entangled and killed.
Remove all ropes connected to the door before
installing and operating the opener.
To avoid damage to the garage door and
opener, disable locks before installing and
operating the opener. Use a wood screw or nail
to hold locks in the "open" (unlocked) position.
Operation at other than 120V 60 Hz will cause
opener malfunction and damage.

Tighten the Chain & Cable
• Spin the inner nut and lock washer down the
threaded shaft, away from the trolley.
• To tighten the chain, turn outer nut in the direction
shown. As you turn the nut, keep the chain
from twisting.
• When the chain is approximately 1/2" above the
base of the T-rail at its midpoint, re-tighten the
inner nut to secure the adjustment.
Sprocket noise can result if chain is either too
loose or too tight.
When installation is complete, you may notice some
chain droop with the door closed. This is normal. If
the chain returns to the position shown when the
door is open, do not re-adjust the chain.

DO NOT CONNECT TO LIVE ELECTRICAL WIRING.
CONNECT ONLY TO 24 VOLT LOW VOLTAGE
WIRES. CONNECTION TO LIVE WIRES OR HIGHER
VOLTAGE MAY CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY FROM
SHOCK, BURN OR ELECTROCUTION.
Children operating or playing with a garage door
opener can injure themselves or others. The garage
door could close and cause serious injury or death.
Do not allow children to operate the push button(s)
or the remote control transmitter(s).
A moving garage door could injure someone under
it. Activate the opener only when the door is
properly adjusted, you can see it clearly, and there
are no obstructions to door travel.
Locate the door control within sight of the door at
a minimum height of 5 feet where small children
cannot reach, and away from all moving parts of
the door and door hardware.
The multi-function door control is typically attached
directly to the wall. For pre-wired installations (as in
new home construction) it can be mounted to a
standard single gang box. See illustrations.
• Strip 1/4" of insulation from one end of the bell wire.
Connect the wire to the two screw terminals on the
back of the door control as follows: white wire to 2
and white/red wire to 1. (NOTE: After installation, a
green indicator light behind the white translucent
cover will indicate proper connection. If not lit, the
Lock and Light features will not function (reverse
wires to correct).
• Before mounting, remove the white cover by gently
pushing both thumbs against the upper corners of
the cover on the back side of the door control (see
illustration).
• For standard wall mount, mark the wall about 1-1/4"
up the centerline from the bottom of the door control.
Install a 6ABx1-1/4" self-tapping screw at this point,
allowing about 1/8" to protrude from the wall. Slip the
lower part of the door control over the screw head
and adjust for snug fit. Drill and install the top screw
with care to avoid cracking the plastic housing. Do not
overtighten. Run the bell wire up the wall and across
the ceiling to the opener. Use insulated staples to
secure the wire in several places. Be careful not to
pierce the wire with a staple, creating a short.
• For pre-wired installations, partially install a 6-32x1"
machine screw into the bottom of the gang box,
allowing about 1/8" to protrude. Slip the lower part of
the door control over the screw head and adjust for
snug fit. Install top screw with care to avoid cracking
plastic housing. Do not overtighten.
• Connect the bell wire to the opener terminal screws
as follows: white to 2 and white/red to 1.
• Replace the cover by inserting bottom tabs and
snapping into place. To remove the cover after
mounting, gently pry at the top with a paper clip or
small flat head screwdriver.

The Protector System®
Information you'll need before you begin the installation of the safety reversing sensor.
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.
WARNING
WARNING
Without a properly working safety reversing
sensor, persons (particularly children) could be
injured or killed by a closing garage door. Read
and follow all instructions.
To protect small children, install the safety
reversing sensor so that the beam will be no
higher than 4"-6" above the garage floor.
Disconnect power to the garage door opener
before installing the safety reversing sensor.
Installation procedures are the same for sectional
and one-piece doors.
CAUTION
The brackets must be securely fastened to a solid
surface such as the studs on either side of the door,
or add a piece of wood at each location if installing in
masonry construction.
Be sure power to the opener is disconnected.
The sending eye transmits an invisible light beam to
the receiving eye. The units can be installed on
either side of the garage door as long as the sun
never shines directly into the receiving eye lens.

If an obstruction breaks the light beam while the
garage door is closing, the door will stop and
reverse to full open position, and the opener lights
will flash for 5 seconds.
The invisible light beam path must be unobstructed.
No part of the garage door (or door tracks, springs,
hinges, rollers or other hardware) can interrupt the
beam while the door is closing. If it does, use a piece
of wood to build out each sensor mounting location to

Trouble Shooting
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 under staples or at screw terminal
connections.
• Incorrect wiring between sensors and opener.
• An open wire (wire break).
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.
Aligning the Safety Sensors
• Plug in the opener. Green indicator lights in both
the sending and receiving eyes will glow steadily if
wiring connections and alignment are correct.
The sending eye indicator light will glow regardless
of alignment or obstruction. If the indicator light is
off, dim, or flickering in the receiving eye (and the
invisible light beam path is not obstructed),
alignment is required.

CAUTION
Fasten Door Bracket
To prevent damage to steel, aluminum,
fiberglass or glass panel doors, always
reinforce the inside of the door both vertically
and horizontally with an angle iron.
Follow instructions which apply to your door
type as illustrated below or on page 25.
A horizontal brace should be long enough to be secured to 2 vertical supports. A vertical brace should
cover the height of the top panel.
The illustration 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.

Adjustment Procedures for One-Piece Doors
Open Door Adjustment:
Decrease UP limit
• Turn the UP limit adjustment screw counterclockwise 5-1/2 turns.
• Press the Door Control push bar. The trolley will
travel to the fully open position.
• Manually raise the door to the open position
(parallel to the floor), and lift the door arm to the
trolley. The arm should touch the trolley just in
back of the door arm connector hole. Refer to the
fully open trolley/door arm positions in the
illustration. If the arm does not extend far enough,
adjust the limit further. One full turn equals 2" of
trolley travel.
Closed Door Adjustment:
Decrease DOWN limit
• Turn the DOWN limit adjustment screw clockwise
5 complete turns.
• Press the Door Control push bar. The trolley will
travel to the fully closed position.
• Manually close the door and lift the door arm to the
trolley. The arm should touch the trolley just ahead
of the door arm connector hole. Refer to the fully
closed trolley/door arm positions in the illustration. If
the arm is behind the connector hole, adjust the
limit further. One full turn equals 2" of trolley travel.
Connect the Door Arm to the Trolley:
• Close the door and join the curved arm to the connector hole in the trolley with the remaining clevis pin. It may
be necessary to lift the door slightly to make the connection.
• Secure with a ring fastener.
• Run the opener through a complete travel cycle. If the door has a slight "backward" slant in full open position
as shown in the illustration, decrease the UP limit until the door is parallel to the floor.

WARNING
WARNING
Improper adjustment of the travel limits will
interfere with the proper operation of the safety
reverse system. The door might not reverse
properly when required and could seriously
injure or kill someone under it. Test the safety
reverse system following all adjustments to the
travel limits. See page 30.
Do not make any limit adjustments until the
safety reversing sensors are completely
installed.
Limit adjustment settings regulate the points at
which the door will stop when moving up or down.
The door will stop in the up direction if anything
interferes with door travel. The door will reverse in
the down direction if anything interferes with the
door travel (including binding or unbalanced doors).
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 (see page 30).
Adjustment procedures are outlined below. Run the
opener through a complete travel cycle after
each adjustment.
Repeated operation of the opener during adjustment
procedures may cause the motor to overheat and
shut off. Simply wait 15 minutes and try again.
Read the procedures carefully before proceeding to
Adjustment Step 2. Use a screwdriver to make limit
adjustments.

How and When to Adjust the Limits
• If the door does not open completely, but
opens at least five feet:
Increase up travel. Turn the UP limit adjustment
screw clockwise. One turn equals 2" of travel.
NOTE: To prevent the trolley from hitting the
cover protection bolt, keep a minimum distance
of 2-4" between the trolley and the bolt.
If you have adjusted the door arm to the maximum
length and the door still will not close completely,
lower the header bracket. See Installation Step 1,
pages 12 and 13.
• If the opener reverses in fully closed position:
Decrease down travel. Turn the DOWN limit
adjustment screw clockwise. One turn equals 2" of
travel.
• If door does not open at least 5 feet:
Adjust the UP (open) force as explained in
Adjustment Step 2.
• 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 23.
Test the door for binding: Pull the manual release
handle. Manually open and close the door. If the door
is binding, call for garage door service. If the door is
not binding or unbalanced, adjust the DOWN (close)
force. See Adjustment Step 2.
• If the door does not close completely:
Increase down travel. Turn the DOWN limit
adjustment screw counterclockwise. One turn
equals 2" of travel.
If the door still won't close completely and the trolley
bumps into the pulley bracket (see page 4 or 5), try
lengthening the door arm (see page 26).

WARNING
WARNING
Too much force on the door will interfere with
the proper operation of the safety reverse
system. The door might not reverse properly
when required and could seriously injure or
kill someone under it. Do not increase the
force beyond the minimum amount required to
close the door. Do not use the force
adjustments to compensate for a binding or
sticking garage door. Test the safety reverse
system following all adjustments to force
levels. See page 30.
Force adjustment controls are located on the back
panel of the opener. Force adjustment settings
regulate the amount of power required to open and
close the door.
The door will stop in the up direction if anything
interferes with its travel. The door will reverse in the
down direction if anything interferes with its travel
(including binding or unbalanced doors).
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 260
degrees, about 3/4 of a complete turn. Do not force
controls beyond that point. Turn force adjustment
controls with a screwdriver.

How and When to Adjust the Forces
If the door doesn't open at least 5 feet
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 one-inch
obstruction. See page 30. If the door is hard to
hold or doesn't reverse, decrease the DOWN (close)
force by turning the control counterclockwise.
Make 10 degree turn adjustments until the door
reverses normally. After each adjustment, run the
opener through a complete cycle.
Increase UP (Open) force by turning the control
clockwise. Make 10 degree turn adjustments until
door opens completely. Re-adjust the UP limit if
necessary. After each adjustment, run the opener
through a complete travel 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 10 degree turn 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.
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 10 degree turn adjustments until the door
stops easily. After each adjustment, run the opener
through a complete travel cycle.

To reduce the risk of severe injury or death to persons:
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. Do not permit children either to operate or to play with the opener. Keep remote control in a location
inaccessible to children.
3. Operate opener only when the door is in full view and free from any obstruction. Keep the door in
sight until it is completely closed. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF THE MOVING DOOR.
4. Check safety reversal system monthly. See page 30. The garage door MUST reverse on contact with
a one inch object (or a 2x4 board laid flat) placed on the floor. If an adjustment is made to one of the
controls (either force or limits of travel), the other control may need to be adjusted also, and the
safety reversal system must be checked. Failure to properly adjust the opener may result in severe
injury or death.
5. If possible, use the manual release only when the door is in a closed position. Caution should be
taken whenever the disconnect cord is actuated with the door open. Weak or broken springs may
cause the door to fall rapidly, causing injury or death to persons.

(See Accessories)
WARNING
Weak or broken springs could allow an open
door to fall (either rapidly or unexpectedly),
resulting in serious injury, death or property
damage. If possible, use the manual release
rope and handle only when door is fully closed.
When the opener is activated with the safety
reversing sensor installed and correctly aligned:
1. If open, the door will close. If closed, it will open.
2. If closing, the door will reverse.
3. If opening, the door will stop (allowing space for
entry and exit of pets and for fresh air).
4. If the door has been stopped in a partially open
position, it will close.
5. If obstructed while closing, the door will reverse.
6. If obstructed while opening, the door will stop.
7. The garage door will reverse in the closing cycle,
and the opener lights will blink for 5 seconds, when
the invisible beam is broken. If fully open, the door
will not close when the beam is broken. The sensor
has no effect in the opening cycle.
If the sensor is not installed, or is not aligned correctly,
the door won't close from any remote transmitter. You
can close the door with the Door Control, the Outside
Keylock, or Keyless Entry, however, if you activate
them until down travel is complete. If you release
them too soon, the door will reverse.
The Opener Lights will turn on under the following

Receiver and Remote Control Programming
To comply with FCC rules, adjustment or modification of this receiver and/or
transmitter is prohibited, except for changing the code setting or replacing
the battery. THERE ARE NO OTHER USER SERVICEABLE PARTS.
Your garage door opener receiver and remote control
transmitter have been set at the factory to a matching
code. The door will open when you press the LARGE
remote control push button. The code between the
remote control and the receiver changes with each
use, randomly accessing over 100 billion new codes.
Your SECURITY✚ opener will operate with:
• several SECURITY✚ remote controls utilizing up to
8 functions.
• one Keyless Entry System (with SECURITY✚ logo)
Follow the instructions below to program your opener
to match any additional remotes you may purchase.
See Accessories on page 38.
WARNING
Children operating or playing with a garage
door opener can injure themselves or others.
The garage door could close and cause serious
injury or death. Do not allow children to operate
the door control or remote control transmitter.
A moving garage door could injure or kill
someone under it. Activate the opener only
when you can see the door clearly, it is free of
obstructions, and is properly adjusted.

1. With the door closed, press and hold a remote
control push button. See Figure 1.
2. Press and hold the Light button on the door control.
3. Press and hold the door control push bar.

Having a Problem?
Situation
Probable Cause & Solution
The opener doesn't
operate from either
the door control or
the remote control:
1. 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.)
2. Have you disabled all door locks? Review installation instruction warnings on
Page 11.
3. Is there a build-up of ice or snow under the door? The door may be frozen to the
ground. Remove any restriction.
4. The garage door spring may be broken. Have it replaced.
5. Repeated operation may have tripped the overload protector in the motor. Wait
15 minutes. Try again.
Opener operates
from the remote
control but not from
the door control:
1. Is the door control push bar lit? If not, Remove the bell wire from the opener terminal
screws. Short the red and white terminals by touching both terminals at the same
time with a piece of wire. If the opener runs, check for a faulty wire connection at the
door control, a short under the staples, or a broken wire.
2. Are the wiring connections correct? Review Step 6, page 18.
The door operates
from the door control,
but not from the
remote control:
1. If the Lock button is on, turn it off.
2. Is the door push button flashing? Your opener needs to re-learn a remote control
code. Refer to instructions on the opener panel.
3. Does the battery test light glow when the remote control push button is pressed? If
not, replace the battery.
4. Program the receiver to match the remote control code.
5. Repeat the receiver programming procedure with all remote controls.
The remote control
has short range:
1. Check the battery test light. If the light is dim, change the battery.
2. Change the location of the remote control in your car.
3. Check to be sure the antenna on the side or back panel of opener extends fully
downward.
4. Some installations may have shorter range due to a metal door, foil backed
insulation, or metal garage siding.
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 41A3263 can be installed. This kit was designed to
minimize vibration to the house and is easy to install.
The garage door
opens and closes
by itself:
1. Be sure that all remote control push buttons and battery indicator lights are off.
2. Remove the bell wire from the door control terminals and operate from the remote
control 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 opener.
The door doesn't
open completely:
1. If the door has been working properly but now doesn't open all the way, increase the
up force. See page 29.
2. Is something obstructing the door? Remove the obstruction or repair the door.
3. If door opens at least 5 feet, the travel limits may need to be increased. One turn
equals 2 inches of travel. See page 28.
Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete.
The door stops but
doesn't close
completely:
Review the travel limits adjustment procedures on page 28.
Repeat the safety reverse test after any adjustment of door arm length, close force
or down limit.
34
Having a Problem? (continued)
Situation
Probable Cause & Solution
The door opens but
won't close:
1. If the opener lights blink, check the safety reversing sensor. See page 23.
2. If the opener lights do not blink and it is a new installation, check the down force.
See Adjustment Step 2, page 29. For an existing installation, see below.
Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete.
The door reverses for
no apparent reason
and opener light(s)
don't blink:
1. Is something obstructing the door? Pull the manual release handle. Operate the door
manually. If it is unbalanced or binding, call for professional garage door service.
2. Clear any ice or snow from the garage floor area where the door closes.
3. Review the force adjustment procedures on page 29.
Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete.
4. If door reverses in the fully closed position, decrease the travel limits (page 28).
Repeat safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete. The need for
occasional adjustment of the force and limit settings is normal. Weather
conditions in particular can affect door travel.
The door reverses for
no apparent reason
and opener light(s)
blink for 5 seconds
after reversing:
Check the safety reversing sensor. Remove any obstruction or align the receiving eye.
See page 23.
The opener lights
. . . don't turn on:
1. Replace the light bulbs (75 watts maximum). Use a standard neck garage door
opener bulb if regular bulb burns out.
. . . don't turn off:
Is the Light Feature on? Turn it off.
The opener strains or
maximum force is
needed to operate
door:
The door may be out of balance or the springs are broken. Close the door and use the
manual release handle to disconnect the trolley. Open and close the door manually. A
properly balanced door will stay in any point of travel while being supported entirely by its
springs. If it does not, disconnect the opener and call for professional garage door service.
Do not increase the force to operate the opener.
The opener motor
hums briefly, then
won't work:
1. The garage door springs are broken. See above.
2. If the problem occurs on the first operation of the opener, door may be locked. Disable
the door lock. If the chain was removed and re-installed, the motor may be out of phase.
Remove the chain; cycle the motor to the down position. Observe the drive sprocket.
When it turns in a clockwise direction and stops in the down position, reinstall the chain.
Repeat the safety reverse test after the adjustment is complete.
The opener won't
operate due to
power failure:
1. Use the manual release rope and 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 32.
2. The Outside Quick Release accessory (for use on garages with no service door)
disconnects the trolley from outside the garage in case of power failure.
The chain droops
or sags:
It is normal for the chain to droop slightly in the closed door position. Use the manual
release rope and handle to disconnect the trolley. If the chain returns to the normal
height when the trolley is disengaged and the door reverses on a one-inch board
(or a 2x4 laid flat), no adjustments are needed. (See page 11.)
