Install the stiffening strut on top of the top section of steel doors with the section lying flat. Then install the opener bracket that replaces the center bracket between the top two sections. While you’re working on the sections, protect them from scratches by putting carpet scraps on top of your sawhorses. Now, slide the rollers into the roller brackets.
Garage door sensors 1 are safety devices that prevent the garage door from closing on people, cars, pets, or anything that may get in its way. Garage door sensors 1 are located at the side of the door opening and produce a beam of infrared light. If the beam that runs from one side to the other is interrupted, the door will automatically reverse before hitting the object. Garage door sensors 1 can be purchased separately and average in price from $50-$100.
Installing a garage door opener requires knowledge so that it can be installed properly. Hiring a professional electrician to do the job is a good idea. Installing a garage door opener includes the following: preparation of all the main parts (the rails 2, trolley, motor component), attaching the blocking and bracket 3, installation of additional features (safety rope, light bulb, keypad, safety sensors 1), and testing to ensure that the door runs smoothly and the remotes are functioning properly.

The technician, Robert Helton, was very pleasant, helpful, and professional. He repaired the garage door opener expeditiously and explained why it hadn't worked properly. He also checked the chain mechanism and the door itself and showed me how to manually work the door should I need to do that in the future. I was very pleased with this repair work.

Very highly satisfied. A d would love to have him for future additional repairs. Would definitely recommend sears and would use you guys again thanks mr.technician for a job well done.
Safe automatic door openers. All automatic openers must now have an auto-reversing mechanism and photoelectric eyes located near the floor on both sides of the door (see photo). If the door is closing and the beam between the eyes is interrupted, the door will automatically reverse. If the eyes aren’t connected, the door won’t operate. For instructions on how to install a new garage door opener, see How to Install a Garage Door Opener.
Replacing a circuit board sounds like a scary garage door repair, but it’s really quite easy. It will take 10 minutes tops and only requires a 1/4-in. nut driver. Just follow these steps: Remove the light cover, take out the lightbulb, disconnect the switch and safety sensor wires, remove a few screws, unplug the board and you’re done. A circuit board will cost about $80, so make sure you protect your new one with a surge protector. You can buy an individual outlet surge protector at a home center for less than $10.
Garage door springs come in two styles: torsion (see above), which mounts on the header above the door, and extension (Photo 1), which floats above the upper roller track. In the past, extension springs were safer to install but didn’t have containment cables running through the center of the spring. Without cable, these springs become dangerous, heavy whips when they break. They also tend to be noisier than torsion springs, and we recommend you use them only if you don’t have the 12 in. of headroom above the door that a torsion spring requires.
