    Easy Installation

    0 5/5 Dana R. (New York) - See all my reviews This review is from: Chamberlain KLIK2U Clicker Keypad (Tools & Home Improvement) The best feature of the Chamberlain keypad is that it requires no additional wiring for installation. Once you program the keypad to your garage door opener, it's ready to attach (2 screws). It took me a couple tries to complete the programming, due to the fact I was not fully depressing the numbers on the keypad when programming the code. I would highly recommend. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 1, 2008

    With this kit and a little time, you can repair your garage door opener.

    I was faced with the decision to purchase a new garage door opener for about $230 or repair the existing opener from 1992 which lacks some of today's safety features. Since I don't use this garage door often and I don't have children, I opted to save some cash and do the repair myself. I have no previous experience of doing these types of garage door opener repairs, but as a do-it-yourselfer I figured it was worth the attempt.The kit came with detailed instructions which broke the process down into 5 main steps each with multiple individual tasks. The instructions were not exact for my opener, but were close enough to get the point. The steps start with removing the motor with the worm, removing the chain stem with the gear, replacing the worm, replacing the gear, and finally reassembling everything. Once the first two steps were completed I brought the parts inside to work on. I had the most trouble removing the tightly set pin to replace the gear. About two hours... 5/5 L. T.

    Not for the faint of heart....

    This was a lot of work, more than I had anticipated, despite the excellent reviews here, warning of the many nuts, plugs, and pins involved.The directions were so-so. I found that they were written very generically with the intent to apply to variations of the models. The diagrams could have been more clear...for example, I had trouble figuring out where the retainer clip and limit drive gear (2A) was. It's the white thing on the end of the sprocket assembly shaft. My advice is to take your time and move very slowly through the instructions, step by step. There were a few things that delayed me:* The sprocket assembly had to be lifted up through the hole in the chassis, and I only had 2 inches of clearance between the top of the opener and the ceiling of the garage. This meant that the opener had to come down a few inches. I suspended it with rope and bungees since taking it down completely would have meant un-bolting it from the chain axel, and I didn't... 5/5 Spumanti (Mountain View, CA United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Gear Kit - Part #41A2817 This was a lot of work, more than I had anticipated, despite the excellent reviews here, warning of the many nuts, plugs, and pins involved.The directions were so-so.

    Easy living now

    0 5/5 Steve (Honolulu, HI) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Liftmaster 377LM 315MHz Garage Door Keypad We used to have the key switch on the side of our garage. We recently had an alarm system installed and one of the first things the installer did was tell us to remove it. When I asked why he showed me how easy it was to just pry the switch off of the garage and short the two wires together to open the door. I'd never thought about it. He recommended we install the wireless unit here. Amazon had a good price so I ordered it. Had it installed in about two minutes. "Training" it to our garage door opener was so easy I thought I'd missed something until it worked. The security issue is enough to make this worthwhile but boy is it convenient now when we want to open the garage and don't have keys because they're in the house. Well worth the money in my book.

This review is from: Liftmaster 41A5273-1 Multi-Function Control Panel Easy to install, comes with wire in case you do not have it, bought through Sanford and Sons (lol, great name), and fulfilled by Amazon, delivery was great, easy transaction.This was a replacement for a Raynor garage door control panel (9 years old), works perfect, and is exactly the same, seems as though this unit is same as used on multiple brands, Raynor, Chamberlain, Liftmaster, Sears, etc.Until I got the unit, I did not know how to access the mounting screws, but it is easy, just insert a flat head screw driver at the top of the white button an pry down slightly and the button comes out allowing you to access the mounting screws, and then you disconnect, reconnect the wires on the back and off you go. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 15, 2010

    This thing is awesome after using a one button control for years

    I have had a one button opener wired on the wall of my garage for years.Recently, I lost one of my remote openers, so had to consult the garage door manual on how to reset the security codes for the remotes. While looking through the manual, I found that with the wiring I already had - the single wall button that opens and closes the garage door - that I could put this in its place and now not only open and close the door, but also have the option of locking out all remote openers and the option to turn on and off the garage opener light. This thing is awesome, I love it. Worked immediately upon turning the power to the garage back on.Relatively easy to install. FIRST, SHUT OFF THE POWER AT THE BREAKER TO THE GARAGE. All I needed was a philips head screw driver to remove the two screws from the one button control that was on my wall. Then, I used that same screw driver to loosen the two wires from the one button control. Then, take those two wires and... 5/5 MyNameIsMudd - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Very good product. Fixed the problem

    This unit was easy to install and fixed my old craftsman garage door opener model 139.53962SRT.I learned a few tricks in the processThese are some general troubleshooting steps:1.- Check the wiring first. Be sure wires has not been damaged. With ohm meter check for open circuit or short circuit.2.-Disconnect the receiver and sender units. They both connect to the same terminals. Terminals 2 and 3 in my opener. Be sure to label the wires to be able to reconnect them later. Measure the voltage in the terminals. It should be around 6 volts DC. Terminal 2 negative. Terminal 3 positive. If there is no voltage the control card in the opener is defective. This kit will not help in that case.3.- Reconnect the sender unit first. Its LED light should come on. If it does not, the sender is defective. Replace the sender.4.- If the sender LED comes on, connect the receiver unit. The LED light comes on when it detects infrared light.

    Safety Sensors Beam Kit

    0 5/5 Schmidt - See all my reviews I bought this safety beam kit as a replacement for the kit in my Sears garage door opener. The order was delivered on time. Although the sensors were different from the original kit, they perfectly fit as a replacement. The instructions were simple and easy to follow. The task is simple and it took me 5 minuts to complete the job, including the time for the removal of the old sensors whose bots were partially rusted. The new sensors worked perfectlly. The kit came with all the needed items: new bolts with wing nuts and the conectors that were need for splicing the new wires with the old ones. More importent, the sensors cost half the price that was charged by Sears online. Therefore I rate it 5 stars. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 10, 2009

    Fixed my problem that was due to the sender side

    0 5/5 G. Natehk - See all my reviews This review is from: Liftmaster 41A5034 Garage Door Opener Safety Beam Kit (Electronics) When I was pressing the garage opener, the motor was getting stuck and the bulb would blink 10 times - indicating some perceived obstruction on the safety sensor infrared light beam path. My safety sensor sender side yellow light was on - the receiver side green light was not turning on after multiple tries at alignment. Then I read on one of the reviews that you can use the television remote to check if the receiver is working - right on the green light on the receiver came on. After checking all the wires for loose connection, came to the conclusion that the sender side infrared source might have gone weak.Got part number from owner's manual. Checked on amazon and came to this product. We got the kit within two days (after paying for the 2 day shipping). I was able to cut and splice in the new sender unit and the door started working immediately after that. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 12, 2010

This review is from: Liftmaster 41Ac050-1 Logic Board for Chain Drive Operator This was a no-brainer replacement. My garage door openner got zapped in a lightening storm. The lights were flashing in a certain pattern that corresponded to "replace logic board" in the on-line user manual. So, I found this on line, ordered it, and reinstalled it in about 10 minutes, and everything worked the first time. The hardest part is reprogramming the remote and the two cars' built in buttons - each of which have rolling codes. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 5, 2009

    Right part, despite wrong code from opener

    0 5/5 Bandit - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Liftmaster 41Ac050-1 Logic Board for Chain Drive Operator Following a lightning storm, my opener stopped working. It gave me the troubleshooting code of the LED light blinking 5 times. I was confident it wasn't the motor since my motor would engage it just wouldn't travel very far. Based on the troubleshooting code I replaced the RPM sensor, yet I still got the 5 blinks. Arrgh. I debated on spending the money on a "long shot" (since the codes couldn't be wrong... duh) but remembered reading a post somewhere of another user's similar situation where he replaced the board and it fixed it. After a couple of weeks of deliberation, I bought the board and voila! Perfect. Simple replacement - very straight forward. I went ahead and ordered the surge protector while I was at it in hopes of preventing a similar outage in the future. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 17, 2011
