The Direct Drive garage door opener is the only one of its kind which offers Europe's leading innovative technology. Unlike conventional garage door opener that use a noisy chain, belt or screw the Direct Drive has only one moving part. The motor glides silently along the chain which is embedded in a sturdy steel rail. Extremely quiet garage door opener with virtually no vibrations. Perfect for homes with living spaces above the garage. Very smooth operation with soft start and stop technology. Because the motor is located at the door instead of the back of the opener it maximizes the power.

The Chamberlain tech said that if the door were balanced, it should remain stationary at any level if disconnected from the opener. This is not the definition of "balanced" in any manual that I have looked at. In any case, I explained to him that the garage door opener would automatically stop or reverse even when not connected to the door. He said that there was no point in repairing the Chamberlain opener until the garage door was working properly. End of conversation.
After having several conversations with Chamberlain tech support, I realized that I was not going to get any help, so decided to replace it with a new one. I almost bought another Chamberlain because I have had several, but after doing an internet search on reviews, I purchased a Sommer opener in the same price range. It is far superior to the Chamberlain products and I guess Chamberlain tech support did me a favor in getting me to buy it. It works amazingly well. I highly recommend it. I had some questions for Sommer technical assistance and I always spoke to the same guy (not from India) and he was very helpful.
Continues to work exceptionally well with no problems whatsoever. My wife and I often comment that it is a great opener and well worth the money. I would never buy another brand.
