Coop Auto Door is a heavy-duty, Amish-made, automatic chicken coop door that comes ready-to-use and requires minimal installation and setup. The predator-proof, heavy duty, all-weather aluminum door features a clean-sliding action that does not catch or stop. The super-strong polycarbonate cover provides visibility and will not scratch, crack or break. Coop Auto Door features a concealed motor with no hanging wires, switches or exposed parts, and the motor comes with a standard one-year manufacturer’s warranty. You will love the freedom that comes with an automated door, while your chickens enjoy the protection of the coop Auto Door. The frame (33” x 12” x 3”) fits over a 10.5” wide, 12” tall opening and is constructed of composite material that is impervious to the elements and provides a sturdy, easy-to-clean surface. Cord strength is rated at 120lb. Motor lifting capacity is 6lb. Parts operating temperature ranges from -30f to +120f. Coop Auto Door installs in just four easy steps: 1. Measure and cut a hole in your chicken coop 2. Attach the frame with four screws 3. Install four aa batteries (or use electric power) 4. Set the digital timer...And that's it with the basic model you can simply enter the times you wish for the door to open and to close. The door features am/pm or 24-hour clock operation, scrolling speed controls, and low battery/jam indicators. Operating modes include timer, override, manual and second chance. Timer mode adjusts open/close times based on clock time. Override mode temporarily holds your door in an open/closed position without losing presets. Manual mode allows you to move the door on demand without losing calibrated settings. The second chance option enables end of day door reopening and closing for “latecomers.” Power your automatic chicken door with 4aa batteries or electric power. Power supply is 110v (adaptor included). Solar kit also available. Manufactured in the USA in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania.

It's not mechanical, it's electronic. Why does this happen? I've no idea, because the manufacturer doesn't respond. I figure the computers are imports from some underpaid workers, and the quality just isn't there.
The basic concept is good, I'm willing to pay ~$300 for a door that will automatically open and close. However, next time I'm going to try another manufacturer.
Update: After a few email exchanges and pictures sent to prove that mine was broken etc, they sent me a replacement part. My door worked for about 3-4 months and then something else on it broke. I wish that I had just spent the extra money and bought a door that wasn't such a headache....
I have been using it for almost a month now and it has worked flawlessly.
Only problem is, I noticed there was water vapor inside the LED display. I opened the GASKETED door to the control box and saw a puddle of water inside with condensation on the batteries and circuitry. Emailed the manufacturer and after looking at a photo, responded that I should "put a peice of exterior plywood on an angle to keep the rain from getting into the control box".
I guess the weatherproof-ness of this door does not extend to the gasketed control box... I suppose I will need to put up some kind of awning for the door.
So far, it is still working fine, but I couldn't imagine the circuitry will survive long with water getting in the box and condensing on the electronics. Could definitely effect the longevity of the door.
Maybe it's just the one I got or maybe it's all of them? I don't know, but be warned.
