Garage door opener installation process
Spread the parts of your assembly kit in front of you. Attach the coupler and rubber bumper to the power head. And then fix the first rail section – the one with the carriage stop – and then install the remainder of the sections.
Fix the rail fastener to the right rail side, and then slip the carriage into the slot from the end of the rail. Then install the rail strips to the end of the rail part.
After fixing the rail section, install the limit switch wires in the channel of the rail assembly and then attach the 2 limit switches – place the first switch about 6 inches from the gray wire and the other one about one foot from the end of the rail assembly. Then attach the emergency release knob and move to the next step.
Place the header bracket over the garage door and then fix it to the wall. Attach the power source to the ceiling and then install the bracket to the garage door with lag screws. Install the door arm and grasp it in place with clevis pin. Next, attach the other arm to the traveler with clevis pin.
The last step is to install the switch. Find the outlet wire, which reveals the sheathing of white and red wire, attach the exposed wire to the switch and then screw the switch into the wall. Attach your garage door sensors to all sides of the door.
