Set up the rail system.
Assemble the rails, then attach the motor. Once done, add the drive chain or belt, pulley, and trolley. At the motor end of the rail, add the stop bolt. Meanwhile, set up the garage door mechanism.
Install the motor.
Lift the rail assembly to the right position and support it on the motor end. Put the ceiling bracket together and mount the opener motor. Do not plug it in until the last step.
Install the electronics.
Mount the components of the obstruction sensors, and then mount the push button wall switch to the terminals. Connect the obstruction sensors and wall switch to the opener motor terminals.
Switch on and test.
Plug your opener motor in and see if it works properly. You may try cycling the door up and down several times to make sure it works and make necessary adjustments. See to it that the remote controls also work.
Tips for Installing New Garage Door Openers
Check your garage door.
Before getting a new opener, check your garage door for issues. Slow movement or noise may indicate friction or obstruction and will only require maintenance instead of repair.
Check the door’s balance before installing the opener.
An unbalanced door may put unnecessary stress on your opener. For safety purposes, make sure that it has the perfect garage door balance and can support itself.
When replacing an existing opener, leave it in place before installing a new one.
This will serve as a great visual reference, which is especially helpful for people looking to replace their opener with the same model.
