Excellent So far
Purchased the 1/2 hp Garage Door Opener (Belt Drive) online Saturday, March 14 afternoon and picked the opener up on Sunday, March 15. In addition, I paid for installation through Sears and was promptly called on Monday to schedule a date/time for installation. The installer completed the installation on Thursday, March 19. He was very professional and had an abundance of knowledge in regards to this product and completed installation in 30 minutes, which was great considering my home didn't have a previous automatic garage door opener. The installer stated I should purchase the Security+ Compact 3-Function Remote Control, which can be added to a key ring. I think this would be great when I'm out on the motorcycle!

Works when it wants to.
I purchased this garage door opener, model 139.53914D(00953914000), in Feb 08. I was excited at first about the belt drive being so much quieter than the chain drive unit it replaced but soon I realized the downfalls of the unit which bring "my" rating of a 1 star rather than a 5. The only device that opens the door as it should is the wall mount unit that's mounted at my houses' enrty "inside" the garage. The outside unit requires you to enter the code then hit the enter button once if your lucky, 2 twice most of the time, or just re-enter the code all over again. The vehicle remotes work 1 out of ten times even if your sitting in front of the door. I believe this is caused by the new feature of "random codes" as they call it in the manual. I'll bet if one was able to disable this feature that the door would probably work as it should. Lastly, my "home link" feature in my car, that worked with my old Sears GD Opener does not work with the new unit. It simply won't accept the program code to activate the opener. Sincerely, very dissatified customer.

Fine Machine

This opener works great. It is nice and quiet and has a motion sensor that will turn on the light when you step into the garage (this can be turned on or off as needed). My biggest problem is sometimes I forget to close the door when I go to the store. I come home and the door is still wide open. That's my fault, not the openers. ha Retired Jim from Chula Vista, CA.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Craftsman Garage Door Openet

This is the second purchase I have made of this model garage door opener. The first one I bought has been flawless in its operation. Therefore, when I needed to purchase a second one for the other garage door I looked for the same model.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Replacement Opener

My Chamberlain chain drive opener wasn't doing so well lately and when the sprocket shaft broke, it was time to either stay with a chain drive or move to a belt drive opener. This unit seemed to fit my need; price, previous reviews, feature/functionality. Installation was very easy. Manual provided sufficient instructions and in some areas great detail. I was able to use motor unit mounting hardware and door sensors from my previous system that saved me a great deal ofinstall time. From box opening to opener operation was about 1 hour. Very easy. Adjustments very easy. Although 2 remote control units are included with this system. My old Chamberlain Security+ and Lift-master Security+ remote control units are not programmable with. this new system. Very impressed with how quiet this system is compared to chain-drive.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

clerk was just trying to be helpful.

Having used a 1/2 hp Craftsman (belt drive) door opener for many years. I am thinking the last one was over twenty years old. It failed to work recently and I went to purchase one to replace it. Found what I wanted and made the purchase. Sales clerk ask if I needed some one to install it, then if I needed some one to carry it to the car. I am just 76 years old but this is my job around my house. That is one reason it lasted so long, I installed it right. And the new one is working great.......

I would recommend this product to a friend.
