The quality of the parts OVERALL seems decent, although I noticed that a significantly lighter weight steel and smaller gauge fasteners are used for the bracketry and rail system than had been used with my older 1/3hp chain driven unit (20-25 years) which had also been Chamberlain-(Sears private labeled) model. That may be a part of why this new one still flexes considerably-in spite of the square cross section of the new rail (vs "t" section) and is actually louder in operation than the old one had been.
Also, perhaps one of the MOST important parts, the emergency release lever (which is the part actually being pulled on by the hand rope and handle) is one of only 2 parts of the entire assembly of rail/guide/bracketry/etc. that is necessary for opening the door manually, IS MADE OF PLASTIC. If this part breaks, even if the door is very well balanced, the door can't be opened without tools. Why they chose to penny-pinch on the design and manufacture of this particular EMERGENCY-RELATED part is beyond me. Of course, the main pulley is now plastic too, so if THAT part breaks, the door can't be opened automatically......Read more ›
Thinking really hard about buying a second Chamberlain to replace the older Sears garage door opener. Really pleased with purchase. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this model.
HOWEVER - I am disappointed in the "Product Description" from the Manufacturer. They need to make it clear that --- out of the box --- the opener will only work on 7 foot doors. IF YOUR DOOR IS TALLER THAN 7 FEET .... you will be required to buy the extension kit for about $30 extra dollars.
So - here is what happened to me. I purchased the opener. I received it a few days later. I set aside a few hours to install my new opener. I organized all my tools. I opened the box, and - boom - I learned that it would not work with my door because I have an 8 foot door. So I put everything away, ordered the extension kit, and waited until the following week.
IF I HAD KNOWN I would have either bought the extension kit at the same time I bought the opener, or I would have bought an opener that worked for 8 foot doors.
Having said all that, I am happy with the opener and the extension kit. It actually works very well.
One final disappointment: Because I had to buy the extension kit, I now have left over parts from the base kit, which I do not need, and will never need. This is a waste of my money, and is a waste of natual resources, which makes me sad.
One thing that was mentioned in the directions but not in the description online was that your garage door will need to be reinforced so that over time the opener does not strain and warp the door. A quick run to the local hardware store for some angle iron did the trick for me. While there you can also pick up some more insulated staples as they only supply a handful for you. A second set of hands would have been useful while installing especially when having to raise the door when the opener was only attached to the wall and not yet the ceiling. I was able to make due with propping the motor on a long 2x6 I had for a minute.
The opener seems to run fine and is perfectly capable of handling my single door. It is a relatively quiet opener with most of the noise I hear coming from the actual door. The fine tuning of the openers movement to allow proper height of the door up and down were simple and quick. The safety sensors were easily aligned using the provided clips. I did not test the maximum distance of the remotes but was able to activate the opener from the opposite side of my 1/2 acre lot which is all I really need. Edit: It works from half a block away.
I am pleased with the opener and will modify my review if anything changes with use.

great product with very easy install thanks to well written instructionsPublished 16 months ago by Jammer
Bought this model in 2009. I am not an especially handy guy, but this went up in a couple of hours and has worked flawlessly. It is also much quieter than the unit it replaced. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Abarth
The machine works great, the installation instructions and pictures were vague and a bit difficult to comprehend.
Thanks for your quick service.
