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 at the side 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.

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.

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.

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.
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 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 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.
The mounting brackets are designed to clip onto the track
of sectional garage doors without additional hardware.

• Cut the end of the safety reversing sensor wire, making
sure there is enough wire to reach the pre-installed
wires from the wall (Figure 7).
• Separate the safety reversing sensor wires and strip
7/16 inch (11 mm) of insulation from each end. Choose
two of the pre-installed wires and strip 7/16 inch
(11 mm) of insulation from each end. Make sure that
you choose the same color pre-installed wires for each
sensor (Figure 8).

REVERSING SENSORS
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.
1. If the sending eye indicator light does not glow steadily
after installation, check for:
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.
•
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:
• 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.
•
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 15.

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.
Header
Bracket
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.

- 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" (5 cm) of trolley travel.
- Press the Door Control push button. 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" (5 cm) of trolley travel.
3. Connect the door arm to the trolley:
• Closed door adjustment: decrease DOWN travel limit
- Turn the DOWN limit adjustment screw clockwise
4 complete turns.
• 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.
- Press the Door Control push button. The trolley will
travel to the fully closed position.
NOTE: When setting the up limit on the following page, the
door should not have a "backward" slant when fully open
as illustrated below. A slight backward slant will cause
unnecessary bucking and/or jerking operation as the door
is being opened or closed from the fully open position.

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.
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 25).
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.
To prevent damage to vehicles, be sure fully open
door provides adequate clearance.
Cover Bolt Protection
2-4"
(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 2" (5 cm) of travel.
Left Side Panel
Limit Adjustment Screws
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.
• If door does not open at least 5 feet (1.5 m):
Adjust the UP (open) force as explained in Adjustment
Step 2.
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 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 18.
If door still will not close completely and the trolley
bumps into the pulley bracket, try lengthening the door
arm (page 21) and decreasing the down limit.
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.
23
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 back 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.

Controls
HOW AND WHEN TO ADJUST THE FORCES
1. Test the DOWN (close) force
Back Panel
• 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 25. If the door is hard
to hold or does not 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.
KG
• If the door reverses during the down (close) cycle
and the opener lights are not 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.

FORCE ADJUSTMENT LABEL
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 does not 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.
Open Force
• If the door does not 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.
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 21.
• 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).
1-1/2" (3.8 cm) board
(or a 2x4 laid flat)
• Any repair to or buckling of the garage floor.
• Any repair to or adjustment of the opener.
ADJUSTMENT STEP 4
Test The Protector System®
Without a properly installed safety reversing sensor,
persons (particularly small children) could be
SERIOUSLY INJURED or KILLED by a closing garage
door.
• Press the remote control push button to open the door.
• Place the opener carton in the path of the door.
• Press the remote control push button to close the
door. The door will not move more than an inch
(2.5 cm), and the opener lights will flash.
The garage door opener will not close from a remote if the
indicator light in either sensor is off (alerting you to the
fact that the sensor is misaligned or obstructed).
If the opener closes the door when the safety reversing
sensor is obstructed (and the sensors are no more
than 6" (15 cm) above the floor), call for a trained door
systems technician.
