Product Description

1/2 hp Chain Drive Garage Door Opener Opens by Remote, Inside and from Car

Enjoy a great end to every day by installing the Craftsman Garage Door Opener with Anti-Burglary Coding today. The 1/2 HP motor lifts your garage doors gently and doesn't close until it's sure you've arrived safely inside. You don't have to rush in because advanced sensors will reverse the closing doors if they detect your car's motion. Once you're in, the PosiLock system will make sure the garage doors are closed tight behind you.

You receive two remotes with this 1/2 hp Chain Drive Garage Door Opener. Keep one for yourself and give another to a family member or friend if you have a double garage. If it happens that you lose your remote, you can open from inside the house. Another option is to have a homelink visor installed so you can open it from inside your car. For your safety, it uses top anti-burglary technology that sends a new code every time you use it. This prevents thieves from interfering or activating it when you're not home.

  • The Craftsman Garage Door Opener with Anti-Burglary Coding ensures you a smooth and safe drive into your garage every day
  • Hardworking 1/2 HP motor with chain system lifts and closes garage doors with ease
  • Sensor technology reverses closing doors if they detect motion from your car
  • PosiLock system closes door tight
  • Comes with 2 remotes with anti-burglary technology that sends new codes every time you use them
  • If you lose remote, open from interior
  • Alternately, install homelink compatible visor to open from inside car
  • Dependable system that won't cause harm to property or users

1st Time Installer
Our old Craftsmen that was in our home for the 7 1/2 years that we have lived here (and well aged prior to our home purchase) died about a month ago. Being unemployed I was concerned with spending too much and settled for the 953930. I have never installed a garage door opener and was concerned with installing the unit alone. Much to my delight the unit was easy to install and took about 3 hours. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I caution anyone to NOT test the unit until it is completly installed. I "test " ran the unit prior to installing the door stop sensors and attaching the door. It was a mistake and created an additional hour of work to adjust the chain to the correct position. If your replacing your unit and have an existing rail, I suggest that you go ahead and repalce everything... after all you did pay for it and your rail could have some un noticed wear. It really is not much more work and the unit operates much quieter. I believe it was a great value for the money. If you are a Craftsman club member you can receive additional discounts when offerd saving an additional $10, just ask a Slaes Associate about joining, it is free.

Not as good as past models.
In 2006, replaced a 1980 model Craftsman opener that was already up when we bought the house. Not bad: 26 years of service. New opener worked great. Replaced the controller card because of an electrical surge ($96). April 2009 - less than 3 years service - the chain-drive gear snapped off the gear-train axle. On examination this shaft narrows to less than 1/4-inch (!) at the bearing. I could replace it but now (including the controller board) we're well into the original price. Not pleased. Note that the 4-year warranty is on the MOTOR. The motor still works fine. The rest of the opener - not as good as an equivalent Craftsman model from 26 years ago.

Good Product

The opener is easy to install if you have an existing Craftsman system with wirings ready. If you have just the motor that needs to be replaced, most of the components in the box are not necessary. It is very easy to take out the old broken motor and put in the new one. The reomote that came with it work right out of the box. I just wish Sears can sell the parts separately like the motor only so I don't have to buy so many useless accessories, I didn't even have to change the wall mounted control.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It sucks do not buy, junk

I purchased a Craftsman because I have had good luck with Craftsman products in the past. But steer clear of this lemon - it is a piece of junk. From the light bulbs vibrating themselves out, thus requiring the sockets needing replaced (although under warranty you have to pay somebody to come out and tell you that they don't work), not at one years old, I have to replace an RPM sensor. Sears you blew it with thus one.

Erratic behavior; remanufactured part

Door began partially opening on its own about 60 days after installation. Repairman was late and in a big hurry. Had remanufactured logic board sent for me to install. Sears, you lost me as an appliance customer.
