Very quiet and 25% faster opening/closing
This unit replaced a Hp Sears unit that was 15 years old. I am impressed at how quiet this opener is. You may read that a belt drive or screw drive is quieter than chain drive. That is untrue. The chain on a door opener is basically the same as a bicycle chain. Your bicycle?s chain drive is almost silent when you are pedaling and it is moving much faster that the garage door chain! The noise you hear from openers is mostly the vibration from the motor ? not the chain. On this unit, the motor is exceptionally well isolated and quiet. Note that chain drive has been demonstrated to be the most reliable system for garage doors. A feature particular to this unit which has not been mentioned much is its speed. It opens and closes the door 25% faster than all of the other available Sears garage door openers. This alone sold me for the convenience factor. This door opener has a much improved rail system. My old Craftsman unit had an inverted ?T? steel rail cross section that the chain would bounce against as it operated. The new opener has a rectangular box cross section steel rail which is very rigid, and actually better looking. The traveling carriage completely surrounds the rail and needs no lubrication as it has self-lubricating wear strip inserts. The moving chain is managed well and it never touches the rail. The housing is significantly redesigned from previous older Sears door openers also. The light covers conveniently hinge down to open and the electrical connections are the convenient push-in type that you don?t need a screwdriver for.

Craftsman Opener, not worth it

We have had the unit for 5 years.  In year 4, both remotes stopped working and I tried reprograming them a couple times without success.  I tried taking the remotes to the store and the employee only could come up with changing the battery.  I had the batteries tested at *********** and they were fine. I called the Sears garage door specialist and they have a $99 service charge and said for $99 you can buy new remotes.  So either way I lose.  Luckily, the key pad still works.  Not worth pay 50% of the total costs just for new remotes.   Now without having openers for a year, in year 5 the optical eyes believe something is in the way of the door closing.  I have swept away all dirt and debris and they still don't work.  After 20 attempts it may finally close.  Now I have to manually close the door.  So what is the point of the device? The opener is now worthless.  It would be less hassel and just as cost effective to buy a new unit.  I am stuck fixing this garbage or buying a new unit that won't give me so much trouble.  You get what you pay for with this stuff.  Look elsewhere. These things should last more than 5 years.

Worth the money

This has been the nicest garage door opener I've had so far. I love the features and the ease of set up. I installed it myself and it wasn't too hard to do. Nice and quiet and handles the door like a champ. Probably my favorite thing is the motion sensor on the wall controller for the light. I was able to sync it with my wife's new car (Toyota) without a problem.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Do not purchase this!

Our Craftsman 3/4 HP garage door opener (model 139.53990DS) has been installed for 15 months and suddenly stopped working! I would not recommend this product to anyone. They suggested I send someone to evaluate the repair (for a $75 trip charge). Rather than wasting my money on that, I will be purchasing a different brand from a different retailer. A garage door opener should not be designed to last for 15 months.

Easy Entry

This product was easy to install and makes opening a full double size door slide smoothly up and down. It is very quite and with the key pad entry and the vacation setting it covers all areas of need.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Quiet! Easy to install!

Solved our problem. Couldn't figure out why our garage door wouldn't go down anymore. Turns out we needed a 3/4 HP not 1/2 HP for our 2 car garage door. My bedroom is on the first floor right off the garage. Can't believe how quiet this thing is. Also, love that their is a sensor so when I go into the garage to grab something, the light automatically turns on then off. No more forgetting to turn the light off. Product took about 45 mins to read instructions and install, but we only needed to replace the opener. Love the outdoor keypad. Great Price!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Openers are great, in garage control panels are poorly designed.

The in garage, hardwired, control panels are poorly designed. The opener button relies on plastic tabs, used as springs, to return the button to home position after they have been depressed. It does not provide enough tension to accomplish it fully. As a result, after having these openers (2 of them) installed by a professional on our new garage, we woke up in the morning to find one garage door opened. It had done so during the night. This happened on several nights.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good quality and everything you need is included

I purchased this to replace a 25 year old, original, 1/2HP Craftsman door opener that was installed in my garage from when I bought my house. The install was fairly straight forward, no missing pieces, and the hardware quality was good. Door adjustment seemed like a daunting task when reading about it but with a quick glance at the manual and a few screw adjustments on the opener it was done. Physically mounting the unit to your ceiling or rafters will be the biggest chore. Installing the header is a snap. I was able to reuse the previous mount on my garage door, as well as the old safety sensors so this saved time. The new opener is quieter and faster than the old opener; to be expected. Programming the keyless-entry was easy, and both car remotes worked fine with no additional programming needed. The cover for the main push-button control was a little tricky to get back together but works as expected once everything snapped back together after mounting. Having two 100W bulbs within the opener is great, and having a 'light switch' for these bulbs on the main control unit is great. Overall it's a nice unit that is working out as planned. I hope the reliability is high and it can stay in service for many years.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great replacement garage door opener

I bought this item as a replacement for an older ? hp craftsman garage door opener. The old one was probably fifteen years old. It just made cranking noises but didn?t lift the garage or close it unless manually assisting it. I wanted to be able to use the old hardware and just replace the motor unit. I loosened the chain from the old unit and then carefully removed the bolts from the ceiling. I let it rest on the ladder. Then I disconnected the rail from the old unit and attached the new motor part to the old rail and then fastened it back to the ceiling. It was a bit tricky putting the chain back on the new motor unit. The chain was in the wrong position because the door only went down 2 feet. We had to manually pull the chain back about 5 feet, and then reattach to the motor unit. After that it was only a foot off, which we corrected by using the up and down force dials. It is much quieter than the old unit. I don?t think it goes any faster than our old ? hp unit though.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
