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.

Reviewers may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing a review.
Those benefits were not conditioned on the positive or negative content of the review.

Doesn't work

Tried to activate it and it appears to be bound up (I.e., you can hear the motor attempt to start, then nothing). Now trying to call someone at Craftsman for help....can't seem to find a contact number.... I know this product as I have two others and they're excellent!!!!

Replacement

Our first version lasted 16yrs. What I liked was that everything lined up and so it was pretty painless to swap out the motor portion of the opener with the new one. It took me 1.5hr from opening the box to cleaning up the leftovers. Although it was a bit of a challenge, I was able to make the swap without taking down the old system and without help (someone to hold the units while I bolted/unbolted would have made it easy, however). Hopefully this one will last 16yrs as well.

Defective unit right out if the box

Got this unit for a Christams gift.
Just got it out to install it. Everything completes and push the button and the door opens great. Push the button to close and it won't move.
Can't get warranty in the unit as we can't prove purchase without the receipt

Does the Job

Replaced a craftsman garage door opener with this new one. Since the door was already in place, installation was a breeze. The opener works like a charm and I expect quite a few years of service.

junk!

...installed less than a year ago. A couple weeks ago it has started making a very loud and annoying screeching sound when it begins to close. We spayed everything with special garage door spray, but it didn't help at all. A sears repairman was called. He greased it more and could not stop the noise either. I guess we'll just have to live with the LOUD embarrassing shrill a few times a day everyday!

...JUNK, would not buy again ever!!!

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.

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.

Craftsman Garage Door Operner

Replaced a broken Craftsman Garage Door Operner of the exact same size, HP and design that was in use for over 20 years. It was a breeze to change out. Went back to Sears for the replacement of a craftsman product even though other venders offer a different Operner at lower prices.

Excellent product

The Garage Door Opener was installed and working quite satisfactorily. Sears installer was a real pro and installed the opener efficiently and quickly. I will recommend this product without any hesitation.

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.
