GENERAL NOTES
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF SEVERE INJURY OR DEATH, READ
AND FOLLOW ALL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Install the operator only on a properly operating and balanced door. A poorly operating or
improperly balanced door can cause serious injury or death and severely reduce the life of the
operator.
The door is under extreme spring tension. Have qualified door mechanics make all necessary
adjustments and repairs to the door.
The operator must be installed by qualified door mechanics using proper tools and equipment.
Make sure the available power supply to be connected to the operator is of the same voltage,
frequency, phase and wattage as indicated on the nameplate of the operator.
Read and understand this manual before installing the operator.
Read and understand the wiring diagram of the operator and the control station (open-closestop push button), and any other equipment to be connected to the operator.
The operator is intended to be installed eight (8) feet or more above the floor. It must be
covered or sprockets and roller chains must be guarded when installed less than eight (8) feet
above the floor.
To avoid damage to the door and operator, make all door locks inoperative. Secure locks in the
unlocked position, or install external electrical interlocks to prevent operation with the locks
engaged.
Always disconnect power whenever installing or servicing the door operator or door.
All wiring is to comply with National Electrical Code (NEC) and local code requirements.
Any change in mounting position may result in change of operator rotation and consequently
in change of control functions. Consult factory for any changes.

OPERATOR MOUNTING
1. Before the operator is installed, verify that the door is properly operating and balanced.
2. Make sure the dimensions of mounting holes on the bracket are correct.
3. Attached and tighten the three legs (2) to the mounting plate. (Not applicable for 3/4hp)
4. Bolt the operator mounting plate (1) to the door bracket plate.
5. Finally, mount the operator (3) to the three legs (2) and tighten (for 1/3 and 1/2hp only). For
3/4hp, mount the operator (3) to the mounting plate (1).

6. When the operator is mounted on the bracket, be sure the door driven sprocket is properly
aligned with the operator drive sprocket before securing to the shaft. The clearance (B) must
be the same as the height (A). (See Figure 1 for 1/3hp and 1/2hp; see Figure 2 for 3/4hp)
7. The shelf or bracket must provide adequate support for the operator. Prevent play between
operator and door shaft. Permit operator to be fastened securely and with the drive shaft
parallel to the door shaft. It may be necessary to field brace the operator/bracket.

DRIVE CHAIN ADJUSTMENT
NOTE: Use correct type, size and proper length of roller chain.
1. Adjust the drive chain by tilting or move the operator so that there is about 1/4” of slack when
the chain is depressed.
Note: The set screw included in the operator may be used for adjustment. (See figure 1- S1
location for 1/3hp and 1/2hp), (See figure 2 - T1, T2, T3, T4 for 3/4hp).
2. Once the drive chain has been tightened and the base leg screws have been set, and then
tighten the operator screws.

LIMIT SWITCH ADJUSTMENT
Make sure the limit cams are positioned between the limit switch actuators before
proceeding with adjustments.
1. Remove the control panel cover.
2. Open or close door to determine the moving direction of the limit switch cams.
3. Open or close door to the desired position.
WARNING
If the door is opened or closed electrically, to avoid serious injury or
death, disconnect power before manually moving limit switch cams.
4. While pressing the spring-loaded lever (E), which holds the limit switch cams in place, adjust
the limit switch cam (C or D) until the micro switch (A or B) clicking sound is heard.
5. If the limit switch cam cannot be rotated to its desired position, release the lever and move the
door away from the desired position, then adjust the limit switch cam to its desired position.
It may be necessary to repeat this step until the exact position has been reached.
6. Repeat step 3 and 4 for the opposite position. Adjust close limit cams so that actuator is
engaged as door fully seats at the floor.

WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
Disconnect power at the fuse box and the operator before proceeding
with any wiring.
1. Do not install any wiring or attempt to run this operator without checking with the wiring
diagram. The wiring diagram is located on the inside of the control box cover.
2. Do not turn on power until you have finished making all power and control wiring
connections.
3. Do not run power and control wiring in the same conduit.
4. Any wire connecting to the control panel must be protected by conduit or other means to
ensure the safety and permanency of the wiring.
5. Use copper wire inside the control panel.
6. A separate fuse line of adequate capacity is needed for the operator.
7. The operator must be properly grounded. The ground screw, painted green, is located inside
the control panel.
WARNING
Failure to properly ground the operator could result in electric shock
and serious injury or death.
WARNING
To avoid damage to door and operator, make all door locks inoperative.
Secure lock(s) in the unlocked position, or install electrical interlocks to
prevent operation with the lock engaged.
CONTROL WIRING
WARNING
Disconnect power at the fuse box before proceeding with any wiring.
1. Locate the control station where the user can clearly see the operation of the door. Mount the
10
FS SERIES
U.S. GEAR

enclosed placard adjacent to the 3-button control station.
WARNING
If the door is not visible from the control station, or if any device other
than the control station is used to activate the door, a sensing edge must
be installed on the bottom of the door. Failure to install a sensing edge
may result in serious injury or death to person(s) trapped beneath the
door.
Complete limit switch adjustments before making any sensing edge wiring connections to
the operator.
2. Do not run control wiring in the same conduit as power wiring.
3. Any wire connecting to the control panel must be protected by conduit or other means to
ensure the safety and permanency of the wiring.
WARNING
Do not use radio controls with your operator unless some type of
entrapment protection device has been installed. Failure to do so may
result in serious injury or death to person(s) trapped beneath the door.
WARNING
Do not change closing control from constant pressure to momentary
pressure without installing a sensing edge. This could result in serious
injury or death to person(s) trapped beneath the door.
WARNING
Changing from left hand to right hand or vice versa could result in
change of control wiring. Please consult factory for details.
4. After installation, be sure that the operator, controls, and sensing edge or other entrapment
protection devices have been tested and function properly.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. If a 3-button control station is used to operate the door, push the “OPEN” button to open the
door, push the “CLOSE” button to close the door, push the “STOP” button to stop movement of
the door while opening or closing. Removing pressure from the “CLOSE” button will cause the
door to stop.
2. If a key switch control station is used to operate the door, turn the key to the “OPEN” position
to open the door, turn the key to the “CLOSE” position to close the door, push the “STOP”
button to stop movement of the door while opening or closing. Removing pressure from the
“CLOSE” key position will cause the door to stop.
WARNING
If a sensing edge is not installed on the bottom of the door, and removing
pressure from the “CLOSE” button or key switch position does not
cause the door to stop, this condition must be corrected immediately.
Improper operation could result in serious injury or death to person(s)
trapped beneath the door.
3. Door may also be operated by remote devices.
MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
The brake is a self-adjusting brake. It is maintenance free. The brake assembly requires no
additional adjustments for its lifetime.
If an entrapment protection device is used, i.e. sensing edge or photoelectric sensors, please
consult the manufacturer for maintenance instruction.
WARNING
Disconnect power supply to the operator before servicing.
