Trevieze is right on the money!
on January 8, 2014
I had an older Liftmaster (model 1260LM) that took a dirt nap. This one bolts in the same place as the expired one. Used wire nuts to use the existing wiring for the photo eyes. YOU MUST REPLACE THE PHOTO EYES! I think it took me about 4 or 5 hours because I tried it without replacing the photo eyes at first (it kind of worked, but not with the remote), it was cold, I was by myself, and I am not the swiftest at such projects. Bolting the new motor unit onto the old rail was the hardest part for me. I recommend taking the rail all the way down; I think that might make things go smoother. Anyway, its working now and probably saved a couple hunnert by doing it myself. Thanks Trevieze. I was skeptical, and it worked. One fly in the ointment. I was told by a lift master (Chamberlain) employee that if I replaced the motor unit but not the rail that I would void the warranty on the motor unit. I am also unable to use the old remote or wireless keypad unit that worked with the 1260; no big deal.
