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.

Great quality and service

|

I bought two of these openers at the same time. The quality was excellent and the finish matched the rest of my Craftsman Garage. The assembly instructions were very clear and easy to follow. The fit and performance of the openers was great. I bought online and picked up curbside at my local store. Very convenient and easy. The cost was better than I could find comparable products for at **********, *****, etc. It only took me about 30 minutes each to assemble and install .I would recommend these openers to anyone.

Garage door opener

|

It was relatively easy to install and works perfectly. My only complaint is that it is a replacement for a Sears garage door opener that was cosmetically more appealing.

Noisy

|

Replaced an older Sears Craftsman opener that I had installed 20 years ago. It was working ok but was noisy. The new one I installed is as noisy as the one I replaced. Installation was simple and yes I did use all the new railing, chain and sensors. No old parts were left in place.

Craftsman 1/2 HP chain Drive Garage Door Opener.

|

The last Craftsman garage door opener we installed was in 1998. So that is why we bought another Craftsman ad it is so much quieter than the other one. We have only had t for 2 weeks and so far we are so pleased with it.

1?2 HP Chain Drive Garage Opener

|

I purchased this model recently to replace an older 1/2 HP unit that wasn't working properly anymore. I was hoping to simply drop the old unit down and replace the power head and that's exactly what I was able to do. All bolts and chain adjustments fit perfectly and the whole process took about 30 minutes. It was a breeze to switch out and it's a much quieter unit.

Not wintering well

|

We had a very cold winter in Buffalo this year. The opener stopped lifting the garage door in very cold days. When it got around freezing again it started lifting. We would have to help it up to get it to lift. No happy with this purchase. Now the sensors are not working properly. Have not had this for a year. Not happy.

Sears - Garage Door Opener

|

We have used chain drive Sears Garage Door openers for many, many years and always pleased with quality. However the new ones such as the 1/2 HP chain drive have changed from a heavy metal T-Rail to a Square Tube Rail. We installed a Liftmaster with T-Rail & it works great.

Works good in warm weather...

|

Works good in warm weather, but seems to forget its settings when the weather turns cold. Adjusting the up/down switches on back and side have no effect. When the weather warms back up again it resumes working properly. Frustrating.

Quality item and Easy to install

|

This is the first opener I installed where the rail sections just snap together. It was very quick and easy to install compared to the bolt together type and in the end is just as sturdy! Would by again for another property provided it holds up. Previous opener was a Genie chain drive which only lasted 1.5 years before the gears stripped!
