Garage door opener

The old craftsmen garage door opener lasted 25 years and the new craftsman garage door opener bolted right up to all my old brackets. This really made instillation easy. Assembly was easy to follow .

Nice while it last but that wasn't too long

Got the heavier duty version just to make sure it would perform and last (old garage door opener lasted over 20 years). Installed well and not problem; and for 23 months it was good. Now works intermittently and advised it is logic board problem. Costing another $160 for them to come in and hopefully fix. A new product that can't last even a couple years is not a good product. Thought I was getting Sears reliability (like my washer/dryer/refrigerator/stove/dishwasher) but I guess that is changing and can't stand behind the products anymore :(

Plastic gears guaranteed to break


So the item lifts a door weighing hundreds of pounds. In my day, this called for brass gears. But oh no, Sears puts in cheap nylon ****, guaranteed to wear out after a short time. Well guess what, I'm not replacing it with another Sears GDO. Fool me once, shame on you, but you ain't fooling me a second time.

Good value and easy to install


Is a good product and not too hard to install yourself if you are mechanically inclined. I did it by myself in about 4 hours. I did reuse the current sensor wires.
