Thank you Mark. I am know confident that the new unit will work. As for replacing the opener. I know it is very old and unsafe. But it is located at my mother's house in northern California. She is 87 years old, and will soon have to move to an assisted care facility. At that time the house will be sold. So I am reluctant to make any upgrades at this time.

Thanks again, and when I get the new unit I will let you know how it works.

The manufacturer got back to me this morning. He states the kit is made to convert all openers to the new remotes. He said all openers put out voltage to the wall switch. He said to follow the instructions that comes with the kit and you should not have any problems. While we were talking he also mentioned you may consider replacing the whole unit. Only because of the age and it does not have the safety features that are required now.





I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Mark T. Have you had the opportunity to do any more research on the Universal Remote we have been discussing?

I sure do appreciate that. I have 44 years working on electronic equipment ( copiers, FAX, networking, computers, etc., etc.), and I am determined to figure this out. Everybody tells me that it will work. I'm sure they are right. But I want to be 100% sure before I go all the way up there to install one. Thanks for putting up with me.

Remember, there is no other power source for the wall mounted receiver but that wire labeled 24 Volts that runs between it and the motor assy.

Don,






All openers put out low voltage on the small wires. When you push the button on the wall mount unit it closes a switch and sends the signal back to the opener to run the motor. I will call the manufacture today to be sure the universal control will work with this unit.



As soon as I find out I will post to this thread.

Mark,

I think the thing that is concerning and confusing me, is the label where the two wires attach to the motor assy. It says 24 Volts. Look at my photo in my first post. If it really is a 24 Volt line, then I don't think I want to apply that amount of voltage to the Universal Remote. Do I? Those wire do in fact go to the wall mounted receiver and there are to other wire attached to it that can supply power. So they must be getting the power from those two wire. Something has to power the wall mounted receiver. As I said, I am two hundred miles away from the unit. So I have to do the research from here. If I were up there, I could just put a volt meter on it and see for my self.

The two wires coming out of the opener should go to the wall control. This is the part that is located by the door and has the buttons you push to open the door. The new kit will connect to these two wires.






Please let me know if you have additional questions.

What are the two wires on the back of the motor assy for? It says they are 24 volts. Are they a power source for the receiver, or is it a trigger for a manual open?

I will be happy to assist you. We offer a kit to convert the unit to newer remotes. The kit cost about $60.00. The link below with take you to the kit. The kit will come with the control, one remote, and the instructions to install it. The kit is not hard to install. Considering the age of the opener and the cost of the kit, you might think about installing a new opener. The reason is it does not have the required safety sensors. If something in the unit fails, the parts are not available and you would need a new unit.






I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.






Thank you,

I have been following this thread, but I am still a little confused about whether the Universal Remote kit will work. on my very old model 139.664300 garage door opener. If I understand correctly, the kit will eliminate the manual push-button. However, my door control unit mounted on the wall has two buttons that must be pushed simultaneously. There is only one wire (2 stranded), connecting the wall mounted unit to the opener motor assembly. The label on the motor assy says 24 Volts Push Button where the wires connect. I assume that the wire is providing +24 volts to the transmitter unit with the two buttons. There is no other power source for the transmitter! I am trying to troubleshoot this problem for my elderly mother who live 200 miles away. So I can't just run up there and have a look for myself. Her door works perfectly when the two buttons are pushed, but she has damaged the hand-held remote. After 30 years, the remotes are no longer made. How do I connect the Universal Kit to this type of door?

Your opener is probably 30 years old and there are no manuals available.
