Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice machine Bought this a few weeks ago. Took a while to install and had to buy additional supplies to install correctly Works well. No complaints... Might just get another for the other door.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Caution! Opens by itself! Overall a good value brought crashing down by bad engineering. This week, three months after installation and as the winter really set in and temperatures dropped, we came out one morning to find that the door had opened itself. Long story short, the cause is the poorly designed wall mount button. Cold weather causes the plastic housing to contract, which activates the tiny open/close trigger switch. It doesn't matter that you've pressed the "don't open with remote" button and see the flashing green light. This is a permanent physical problem with the plastic housing. Google it. Been around for years. The fix is to dismantle the plastic button face--remove it entirely. This eliminates the contraction-caused contact. It also looks pretty ugly on the wall. Your only other solution is to cut power to the unit to ensure it doesn't open. Hardly convenient when running to the grocery store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ouvre porte à chaine Le produit fonctionne très bien. Un seul défaut de ''design'' est que les branchements et ajustements sont à l'arrière du moteur; s'il y a une poutre qui traverse le garage et que le moteur est contre cette poutre (très proche pour permettre l'ouverture maximum de la porte) alors il est impossible d'aller faire les ajustements ou de faire le branchement de la commande murale sans enlever le moteur de ses supports. L'ouvre porte Sears que j'ai remplacé avait les ajustements dans les côtés.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job intended. It does the job intended. Easy to assemble, noise wasn't a factor for me as it is in a detached garage. If I were to get another one, it would have a separate light switch also. I would recommend a model with a couple more features such as the separate light switch, and the added outside keypad.

We have an eight foot high door. Will this unit handle it or does it need an extension

Asked by: pikeslayer
Hi pikeslayer, Thank you for taking the time to contact Sears. You will need the extension kit in order to accommodate an 8’ door. 9-18828 is the 8’ Chain extension kit. Have a great day!

1/2 Horsepower Craftsman

Wall mounted controls will work on opening the door with no issue. Closing the door I have to hold the button down to close. Remotes work 1 in 20 times if that, however, mostly they do nothing but flash the lights on the power head. Please advise a solution or send a replacement.

downloadable owners' manual?

Bilbo's question was not answered, that being, "are owners' manuals for your garage door openers downloadable from your site?" When I attempt a search for 'manual for garage door opener 139.18096' #exact wording as instructed in your use of website guidelines# the product is not recognized, nor is the manual for same, and only response provided is other similar items' sale info. Appropriate answer would appear to me to be a flat-out "No."

Swap for new unit

I currently have a craftsman model 139.18856 which has stopped working. If I buy a new craftsman door opener such as model W-0818453, can I just swap out the main unit and use the same existing rails and chain.
Asked by: Trixie5
Hello Trixie5, We do not recommend just swapping out the powerhead. It is recommended that all parts - powerhead, rails, chain, wall control, and sensors be changed. This will help to ensure that everything is in working order. Also, if there is a warranty call, it may not be covered if only the powerhead is changed. Thanks for shopping Sears and have a great day !

What is the difference between the two models: # 093 518 452 09 and # 097 918 453 10 ?
