I purchased this garage door opener because I liked the idea of being able to open it remotely for my children. It worked for about one week then started giving me a hard time, and now only two weeks after I bought it, it is broken. Sears gave me the worst time trying to get someone to fix it even though only two weeks old with extra warranty purchased. Sears transferred me to 7 yes 7 different people before getting me to someone that could actually talk. Warranty repair guy from Sears installer came out and said I need a new logic board already two weeks later! I asked for a new garage door opener and they said no part has to be ordered. I did not pay to have a parted out used garage door opener that will not work for min. of two weeks when part comes in. I paid for new working INSTALLED garage door opener. Don't deal with Sears they are terrible!!!!!
Outstanding Product along with Sears Customer Service and Price --
Replaced my old (don't remember how old??) Craftsman chain driven 1/2 hp with this Craftsman AssureLink Internet DC Belt Driven 3/4 HP that I purchased today 5/26/2013. My grandson and I installed it in about 1 hour, easy installation, smooth operation and quite - as different as day is from night, LOVE IT!!! Can't imagine purchasing anything that isn't Craftsman or Kenmore -- Thank you Sears and Craftsman --
This is a great, fully featured, garage door opener. The most unique aspect of this garage door opener is it's DC motor; most garage door openers have AC motors. The benefits of a DC motor include: super quiet operation; smooth, slower, starts and stops; faster travel times; battery back-up - my garage door itself its likely to have fewer maintenance issues when it is not being shaken by an AC opener's jarring start/stops.
Quietest opener I have ever heard and was extremely easy to install. Motion sensor lights up the garage when you enter and the assurelink is a cool feature, still debating if I use it often enough to warrant the fee after the free trial.
I bought 3 of these units for my new garage, I'm very happy with the performance and accessories. I have not used the Internet feature yet, there are so many other useful accessories like timed delay close, motion sensing light, and outside security keypad. Also very easy installation.
Very quiet! The best part was the smallest detail for me-Craftsman hasn't changed the location of the 2 holes where the track from the door connects. The house I bought had the original craftsman GDO's from probably the late '70's. I only had to replace the head and the wall switch, everything else didn't need to be replaces. Installed it in an hour rather than a day! The only thing I don't like is that you need to enter your email and password every time you use the Asssure link App. I'd expect once I downloaded the app to my phone I could use it just by launching the app. Small detail
