Description Specifications
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.Free shipping!

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.

1/2 HP Chain Drive Garage Door Opener

We had one of these previously that lasted for over 30 years. We got this one to replace it, and it has been working like a charm. We got Sears to install it, and they did it in a very timely professional manner. If this one lasts as long as the last one, it will be awesome.

The Craftsman product is excellent.

The product is a great garage door opener. We have been using them for years and their product is unmatched. We encourage all customers to stay away from the Genie product. Any Chaimberlain product is the way to go.

Good machine

Bought this opener on sale to replace an older craftsman unit that had worn out. This unit is virtually the same as the old unit, but with improved lighting, electrical connections and look. I even used the old mounting brackets which made for quick easy installation.

Good opener for price

|

Needed to replace my 1/3 HP LiftMaster after not allowing remotes to work - concluded logic board malfunction and too expensive to repair. Bought this opener and with some work swapped out motors without any compatibility issues with existing wiring and chain. Even old LiftMaster remotes compatible with Craftsman opener.

my purchase

|

I recently purchased my first home. I finally have a garage. Being older it is hard to, at times, open and close the garage door. This purchase has saved my arms and back. Having a garage door opener is a wonderful addition to my new abode.

Outdated when I bought it.

|

Will only work on a 6 ft. door as it comes. Not a problem since the part # is in the installation manual for the 7 ft. extension. Well, that part isn't available anymore so I'm stuck woth an opener that won't work for what I need and parts to make it work aren't available. Buyer beware!

After 21 years the Sears garage door opener failed. Time to get a new one. Had a lot of advice where to go. I chose to go to my local Sears store. Good choice. Helpful and we came up with the one that was right for me. On Sale! Following day a professional installer was at my house and it was done. Works great. Happy homeowner

I agree, the website is pitiful. I finally find something I want, put it in my cart, and then it won't show my points or even let me view my cart to complete my purchase. Pretty sad. I love the products, but I'll just wait till I get to the store, if I go.
