Great Buy, Good Features
I bought this opener after buying my new car and having a new baby and baby things to shlep around. It made things so much easier. It is a great buy for the money and has some excellent features. The security pad outside the garage door allows my 14yr old to come and go after school with out having a key to the house we have to worry about her loosing. The two remotes have allowed my husband to have one as well as my father in law. I was able to program the remote capabilities for my car with this opener as well. Its like having three remotes for the same opener! I wasn't so sure about buying a garage door opener with a chain drive. I have never bought an opener before and had just assumed that a belt drive would be quiter. They may be. However, I felt that a chain drive would probably last longer so that is the one I bought. I figured I would just deal with the noise. After having the opener professionally installed by Sears (they did a fabulous job and the guy really knew his stuff), I was very pleasantly surprised that the chain isnt loud at all. As a matter of fact, the thing that is making the noise is my metal garage door. The chain drive doesnt seem to be making noise at all! I would highly recomend this product. The price is great. The lighting feature, extra remotes and car programable ability, the key pad and the lock out capability are absolutely great. I use all of them.

only lasted 10 months
Opener quit working after 10 months and you have to pay for a service call to get warranty service which is about the same as a new opener.

25 more years

I bought this Craftsman garage door opener because the one I had finally quit working after 25 years!!! I got my moneys' worth and hoping I can get close to the 25 years out of this one. It was easy to put together ( I did it by myself ) in about 45 minutes.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good deal of an opener

Always been pleased with Craftsman garage door openers. This one replaces my almost 15 year old Craftsman opener that finally gave up the ghost. While some improvements have been made, such as more secure remotes, the square tube rail and trolly that surrounds the tube rather than the T-shape track of the old one and the dual lights, I do wish that the tube was a bit stiffer and that the old remotes would work with it. Still, I'm pleased with the quality and value of the purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Dependable & Durable

I purchased two of these to replace the home's original Overhead Door openers. The OD's were so old I couldn't program them to the new cars built-in remote. They installed easy, worked flawlessly and I have had not one problem with them. They are noisy, and that may be a negative for some, but not for me. I can hear when the doors open from my office over the garage.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works Great!!!!

This garage door opener works great; I purchased this garage door opener and had it for six months before we installed it. Nevertheless, when we decided to install it there were two pieces missing, went back to Sears to let them know and they gave me the missing pieces from another. I've had it installed for about 9 months now and have NOT had one problem with it. It opens and closes without any issues. Once I push the remote to leave for work it stays closed all day. Definitely would purchase another.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great but seems failure prone

I love this opener and even though I have had three that failed it still provides good service. The first two I had trouble with were destroyed by a close lightning strike so I can't complain about them but the third one was a replacement for one of the first two and it just stopped working after about a year. The logic board failed and Sears wanted over $140 for the replacement. I bought an entire new one for $139 and will keep the rest of the parts as spares. The unit works great and has plenty of features I like but I'm concerned about reliability.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Buyer beware

I've owned this opener for 18 months now and have had problems almost from the start. My garage faces south so it gets Sun all day. In the morning it won't close because the sensor gets too much sunlight. In the late afternoon it won't close because of the same reason. If my wall mounted remote works my hand held doesn't and vice versa. I've never been able to program my car remote, even when following the troubleshooting instructions. I've replace 4 light bulbs on one side. 2 months after it was installed, it came slamming down while it was closing because the springs broke. Repairman believes the opener wasn't operating properly which caused it to put much tension on the cables and springs. From day to day, it's a hit and a miss as to whether or not it will work. I gave it 1 star because when you buy something designed to function a certain way , it should do just that and this one has not. Good luck!

Very Good - minor niggle

The opener installed easily and works well. My only issue is that the chain operator has a section of steel "aircraft" cable to connect the ends. This seems like a cost reduction and while I haven't had an issue with this I would rather have had a full chain.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Replacement Opener

This was a replacement for a 14 year old Sears opener. There was a slight difference in the wall bracket, but other wise it was an exact fit. If it works as well as the other 3 units I have it may well outlast me. If I had one complaint, it would be the remote controls. They do not control the older Security+ openers. I had to return to the store and purchase additional "programmable" remotes to operate all 3 garage doors from one remote.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
