Preparing the Opening

WEATHERSTRIPS (MAY NOT BE INCLUDED):

Depending on the size of your door, you may have to cut or trim the weatherstrips (if necessary) to properly fit into the header and jambs.

NOTE: If nailing product at 40°F or below, pre-drilling is required.

NOTE: Do not permanently attach weatherstrips to the header and jambs at this time.

For Quick Install track: For the header, align the weatherstrip with the inside edge of the header and temporarily secure it to the header with equally spaced nails. Starting at either side of the jamb, fit the weatherstrip up tight against the temporarily attached weatherstrip in the header and flush with the inside edge of the jamb. Temporarily secure the weatherstrip with equally spaced nails. Repeat for other side. This will keep the bottom section from falling out of the opening during installation. Equally space nails approximately 12” to 18” apart.

For Fully Adjustable track: For the header, align the weatherstrip 1/8” to 1/4” inside the header edge, and temporarily secure it to the header with equally spaced nails. Starting at either side of the jamb, fit the weatherstrip up tight against the temporarily attached weatherstrip in the header and 1/8” to 1/4” inside the jamb edge. Temporarily secure the weatherstrip with equally spaced nails. Repeat for other side. This will keep the bottom section from falling out of the opening during installation. Equally space nails approximately 12” to 18” apart.

PRIOR TO WINDING OR MAKING ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SPRINGS, EN-

SURE YOU’RE WINDING IN THE PROPER DIRECTION AS STATED IN THE

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. OTHERWISE, THE SPRING FITTINGS MAY

RELEASE FROM SPRING IF NOT WOUND IN THE PROPER DIRECTION AND

COULD RESULT IN SEVERE OR FATAL INJURY.

Now, two holes must be drilled into the top of the cut vertical track. Using the illustration shown below, mark and drill the hole locations using a 5/16” drill bit. Once the holes have been drilled, remove any burrs from the drilled holes. Repeat the same process for the other vertical track.

Jamb Brackets

Tools Required: Tape measure, Safety glasses, Leather gloves

2

NOTE: If you have a wall angle track assembly, skip this step. Refer to Package Contents /

Parts Breakdown, to determine if you have flag angles.

NOTE: The bottom jamb bracket is always the shortest bracket or the lowest number marked on the jamb bracket. The center jamb bracket is the next tallest or the next higher number marked on the jamb bracket. If three jamb brackets per side are included with your door, you will have received a top jamb bracket, which is the tallest or the highest number marked on the jamb bracket.

To attach the bottom jamb bracket, locate lower slot pattern of the 1st hole set on the vertical track. Align the slot in the jamb bracket with the lower slot pattern. Loosely, secure jamb bracket using (1) 1/4” - 20 x 5/8” carriage bolt and (1) 1/4” - 20 flange hex nut. Repeat for other side.

Place the center jamb bracket over the slot pattern that is centered between the bottom jamb bracket and flag angle of the 2nd hole set. Loosely, secure jamb bracket using (1) 1/4” - 20 x

5/8” carriage bolt and (1) 1/4” - 20 flange hex nut. Repeat for other side.

If a top jamb bracket was included, loosely secure it to vertical track using the slot pattern in the 3rd hole set and (1) 1/4” - 20 x 5/8” carriage bolt and (1) 1/4” - 20 flange hex nut.

Repeat the same process for the other vertical track.

Flag Angles

Tools Required: Tape measure, Safety glasses, Leather gloves

3

NOTE: If you have a wall angle track assembly, skip this step. Refer to Package Contents /

Parts Breakdown, to determine if you have flag angles.

NOTE: Flag angles are right and left handed.

Hand tighten the left hand flag angle to the left hand vertical track using (2) 1/4” - 20 x 5/8” carriage bolts and (2) 1/4” - 20 flange hex nuts. Repeat for other side. Flange nuts will be secured after flag angle spacing is completed in step, Top Section.

4

Bottom Weather Seal

Tools Required: Power drill, 7/16” Socket driver, Tape measure, Saw horses,

Safety glasses, Leather gloves

NOTE: Refer to door section identification, located in the pre-installation section of this manual to determine what size section you need to use as your bottom section. Measure your section to make sure it is the correct height as indicated on the chart.

Align the ends of the bottom weather seal with the bottom of the bottom section. Attach bottom weather seal to the section using 1/4” - 20 x 7/8” self drilling screws, one on each end at least 6” from the end of the section and one every 18” in between.

5

Counterbalance Cables and Track Rollers

Tools Required: Power drill, 7/16” Socket driver, Tape measure, Safety glasses,

Leather gloves

NOTE: Refer to Package Contents / Parts Breakdown, to determine which bottom corner brackets you have.

Uncoil the counterbalance lift cables. Secure the cable loop to the clevis pin and bottom corner bracket using a 5/16” flat washer and a cotter pin. Repeat for other bottom corner bracket. Starting on the left hand side, attach the left hand bottom corner bracket to the left corner of the bottom section, making sure it is seated to the edges of the end cap, using 1/4”

- 20 x 7/8” self drilling screws and (1) 1/4” - 14 x 5/8” tamper resistant self drilling screw.

Repeat for right hand bottom corner bracket.

NOTE: All doors are provided with the tamper resistant fastener for the bottom corner brackets. However, the professional installer is most likely to have the proper tool to install this fastener. If the homeowner does not have the proper tool to install the tamper resistant fastener, use a regular 1/4” - 20 x 7/8” self drilling screw in its place.

Insert a short stem track roller with roller spacer into the bottom corner bracket. Repeat for other side.

NOTE: Verify bottom weather seal (bottom seal) is aligned with door section. If there is more than 1/2” excess bottom weather seal on either side, trim bottom weather seal even with door section.

Graduated Hinge Attachment

Tools Required: Power drill, 7/16” Socket driver, Saw horses

NOTE: Refer to Package Contents / Parts Breakdown, to determine which Center Bracket(s) came with your door.

NOTE: Prior to fastening center bracket(s) into the door jamb, pilot drill using a 3/16” drill bit.

NOTE: Refer to Package Contents / Parts Breakdown, to determine if your door came with a coupler assembly. If your door came with a coupler assembly, the mounting surface needs to be a minimum of 17” wide. The two center bearing brackets will need to be spaced 12” to

14” apart at the center of the door, as shown.

NOTE: If your door came with (4) springs, each of the outer springs mounting surface will need to be a minimum of 3” wide.

NOTE: If needed, measure the diameter of your springs. If you have a one piece shaft with

3-3/4” diameter springs, they do not share center brackets and do not have a coupler assembly.

First, locate the center of the door. Mark a vertical pencil line on the mounting surface above the door, at the center. Measure from the center of the bearing, in one of the end bearing brackets, downwards, to the top the door. Using that measurement, measure that distance upwards from the top of the door to the mounting surface and mark a horizontal pencil line which intersects the vertical pencil line.

Rear Back Hangs

Tools Required: Ratchet wrench, Socket: 1/2” 5/8”, Wrench: 1/2” 5/8”, (2) Vice clamps, Tape measure, Level, Step ladder, Safety glasses, Leather gloves

IMPORTANT: HOLD THE DOOR DOWN TO PREVENT IT FROM RISING UNEXPECTEDLY IN THE

EVENT THE SPRING(S) WAS OVER-WOUND AND CAUTIOUSLY REMOVE VICE CLAMPS FROM

VERTICAL TRACKS.

Raise the door until the top section and half of the next section are in the horizontal track radius. Do not raise door any further since rear of horizontal tracks are not yet supported.

RAISING DOOR FURTHER CAN RESULT IN DOOR FALLING AND CAUSE

SEVERE OR FATAL INJURY.

Clamp a pair of vice clamps onto the vertical tracks just above the second track roller on one side, and just below the second track roller on the other side. This will prevent the door from raising or lowering while installing the rear back hangs.

Using the chart (Perforated Angle Gauge Weight Limitations) below, use the appropriate perforated angle (may not be supplied), (2) 5/16” x 2” hex head lag screws and (3) 5/16” bolts with nuts (may not be supplied), fabricate rear back hangs for the horizontal tracks.

Attach the horizontal tracks to the rear back hangs with 5/16” - 18 x 1” hex bolts and nuts

(may not be supplied). Horizontal tracks must be level and parallel with door within 3/4” to

7/8” maximum of door edge.

WARNING

EXCEEDING THE RECOMMENDED LISTED DOOR WEIGHT LIMITATIONS OF

SPECIFIC GAUGE PERFORATED ANGLES MAY RESULT IN DOOR FALLING

WHEN RAISED, CAUSING SEVERE OR FATAL INJURY.

PRIOR TO WINDING OR MAKING ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SPRINGS, EN-

SURE YOU’RE WINDING IN THE PROPER DIRECTION AS STATED IN THE

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. OTHERWISE THE SPRING FITTINGS MAY

RELEASE FROM SPRING IF NOT WOUND IN THE PROPER DIRECTION AND

COULD RESULT IN SEVERE OR FATAL INJURY.

Now, lift door and check its balance. Adjustments to the required number of spring turns stated may be necessary. If door rises off floor under spring tension alone, reduce spring tension until door rests on the floor. If the door is hard to rise or drifts down on its own, add spring tension. A poorly balanced door can cause garage door operator operation problems.

To adjust spring tension, fully close door. Apply vice grips to track above third track roller.

Insert a winding rod into the winding cone. On single spring doors, counterbalance lift cable tension must be maintained by placing vice grips on torsion shaft before loosening set screws in the winding cone. Push upward on the winding rod while carefully loosening the set screws in the winding cone. BE PREPARED TO SUPPORT THE FULL FORCE OF THE

TORSION SPRING ONCE THE SET SCREWS ARE LOOSE. Carefully adjust spring tension 1/4 turn. Retighten both set screws in the winding cone and repeat for the other side. Recheck door balance. DO NOT ADJUST MORE THAN 1/2 TURN FROM THE RECOMMENDED NUMBER

OF TURNS.

If the door still does not operate easily, lower the door into the closed position, UNWIND THE

SPRING(S) FULLY (Reference the insert “Removing The Old Door / Preparing The Opening” section on torsion spring removal) and recheck the following the items:

1.) Check the door for level.

2.) Check the torsion shaft for level.

3.) Check the track spacing.

4.) Check the counterbalance cables for equal tension and proper wrap onto the cable drums.

5.) Check the track for potential obstruction of the track rollers.

6.) Clamp locking pliers onto track and rewind springs.

IMPORTANT: IF DOOR STILL DOES NOT OPERATE PROPERLY, THEN CONTACT A TRAINED

DOOR SYSTEM TECHNICIAN.

Cleaning Your Garage Door

Like any other exterior surface, Wayne Dalton garage doors will have dirt exposure from atmospheric conditions. Ordinarily, the cleaning action of rainfall will be adequate to wash the door, or the door can be washed periodically by hosing with a garden hose and clear water

(in particular) for the areas not accessible to rain. If you desire to do a more thorough cleaning, or where soil collection conditions occur, follow these simple instructions.

1. Use a soft-bristled, long-handled washing brush. It attaches to your garden hose and makes washing your garage door easier. Do not rub vigorously which may create glossy areas over the vinyl finish.

2. For hard-to-remove dirt, such as soot and grime found in industrial areas, wash the garage door down with a mild solution consisting of the following ingredients:

One cup detergent (with less than 0.5% phosphate) dissolved into five gallons of warm water.

NOTE: The use of detergents containing greater than 0.5% phosphate is not recommended for use in general cleaning of garage doors.

NOTE: Be sure to clean behind weather stripping on both sides and top of door.

3. Start at the bottom and work up to the top, as less streaking will result. Immediately following all washing operations, thoroughly rinse the surface area with fresh water from a garden hose.

This cleaning and maintenance information is suggested in an effort to be of assistance; however, manufacturer cannot assume responsibility for results obtained which are dependent on the cleaning solution and method of application.

CAUTION: DO NOT PAINT DOOR. PAINTING DOOR WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY.

Operation And Maintenance

OPERATING YOUR GARAGE DOOR…

Before you begin, read all warning labels affixed to the door and the installation instructions and owner’s manual. When correctly installed, your Wayne Dalton door will operate smoothly.

Always operate your door with controlled movements. Do not slam your door or throw your door into the open position, this may cause damage to the door or its components. If your door has an electric opener, refer to the owner’s manual to disconnect the opener before performing manual door operation below.

Manual door operation:

For additional information on manual garage door operations go to www.dasma.com and reference TDS 165.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT PLACE FINGERS OR HANDS INTO SECTION JOINTS WHEN OPENING

AND/OR CLOSING A DOOR. ALWAYS USE LIFT HANDLES / SUITABLE GRIPPING POINTS

WHEN OPERATING THE DOOR MANUALLY.

Opening a Door: Make sure the lock(s) are in the unlocked position. Lift the door by using the lift handles / suitable gripping points only. Door should open with little resistance.

Closing a Door: From inside the garage, pull door downward using lift handles / gripping point only or a high friction area only. If you are unable to reach the lift handles/ suitable gripping points only, use pull down rope affixed to the side of door. Door should close completely with little resistance.

Using an electric operator:

IMPORTANT: PULL DOWN ROPES MUST BE REMOVED AND LOCKS MUST BE REMOVED OR

MADE INOPERATIVE IN THE UNLOCKED POSITION.

When connecting a drawbar (trolley type) garage door operator to this door, an drawbar operator and or drawbar operator bracket must be securely attached to the top section of the door, along with any struts provided with the door. Always use the drawbar operator and or drawbar operator bracket supplied with the door. To avoid possible damage to your door,

Wayne Dalton recommends reinforcing the top section on models 8000, 8100, 8200 and

9100 doors with a strut (may or may not be supplied). The installation of the drawbar operator must be according to manufacturer’s instructions and force settings must be adjusted properly. Refer to the owner’s manual supplied with your drawbar operator for complete details on installation, operation, maintenance and testing of the operator.

MAINTAINING YOUR GARAGE DOOR…

Before you begin, read all warning labels affixed to the door and the installation instructions and owner’s manual. Perform routine maintenance steps once a month, and have the door professionally inspected once a year. Review your Installation Instructions and Owner’s

Manual for the garage door. These instructions are available at no charge from Wayne Dalton,

A Division Of Overhead Door Corporation, P.O. Box 67, Mt. Hope, OH., 44660, or at

www.

Wayne-Dalton.com. For additional information on garage door/operator maintenance go to

www.dasma.com and reference TDS 151, 167 and 179.

Monthly Inspections:

1. Visual Inspection: Closely inspect jambs, header and mounting surface. Any wood found not to be structurally sound must be replaced. Inspect the springs, counterbalance lift cables, track rollers, pulleys, rear back hangs and other door hardware for signs of worn or broken parts. Tighten any loose screws and/or bolts. Check exterior surface of the door sections for any minor cracks. Verify door has not shifted right or left in the opening. If you suspect problems, have a trained door system technician make the repairs.

GARAGE DOOR SPRINGS, COUNTERBALANCE LIFT CABLES, BRACK-

ETS, AND OTHER HARDWARE ATTACHED TO THE SPRINGS ARE UNDER

EXTREME TENSION, AND IF HANDLED IMPROPERLY, CAN CAUSE SEVERE

OR FATAL INJURY. ONLY A TRAINED DOOR SYSTEMS TECHNICIAN

SHOULD ADJUST THEM, BY CAREFULLY FOLLOWING THE MANUFAC-

TURER’S INSTRUCTIONS.

WARNING

NEVER REMOVE, ADJUST, OR LOOSEN THE BOLTS, SCREWS AND/OR

LAG SCREWS ON THE COUNTERBALANCE (END OR CENTER BEARING

BRACKETS) SYSTEM OR BOTTOM CORNER BRACKETS OF THE DOOR.

THESE BRACKETS ARE CONNECTED TO THE SPRING(S) AND ARE UNDER

EXTREME TENSION. TO AVOID POSSIBLE SEVERE OR FATAL INJURY,

HAVE ANY SUCH WORK PERFORMED BY A TRAINED DOOR SYSTEMS

TECHNICIAN USING PROPER TOOLS AND INSTRUCTIONS.

TorqueMaster

®

Plus Springs: Pawl knob(s) (located on the TorqueMaster

®

end brackets above the door) should be engaged to prevent the door from rapidly descending in case of spring failure or forceful manual operation.

Torsion Springs: The torsion springs (located above the door) should only be adjusted by a trained door systems technician. DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust torsion springs yourself.

Extension Springs: A restraining cable or other device should be installed on the extension spring (located above the horizontal tracks) to help contain the spring if it breaks.

2. Door Balance: Periodically test the balance of your door. If you have a garage door drawbar operator, use the release mechanism so you can operate the door by hand when doing this test. Start with the door in the fully closed position. Lift the door to check its balance.

Adjust TorqueMaster ® or Extension spring(s), if door lifts by itself (hard to pull down) or if door is difficult to lift (easy to pull down). DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust Torsion Springs yourself. To adjust TorqueMaster ® or Extension spring(s), refer to your installation instructions and owner’s manual. If in question about any of the procedures, do not perform the work.

Instead, have it adjusted by a trained door systems technician.

3. Lubrication: The door should open and close smoothly. Ensure the door track rollers are rotating freely when opening and closing the door. If track rollers do not rotate freely, clean the door tracks, removing dirt and any foreign substances. Clean and lubricate (use a non-silicon based lubricant) graduated end hinges, steel track rollers and bearings. DO NOT lubricate plastic idler bearings, nylon track rollers, door track. DO NOT oil a cylinder lock, if actuation is difficult use a graphite dust to lubricate.
