Chamberlain Garage Door Openers

Chamberlain® garage door openers are strong, durable, and made by the world’s largest manufacturer of garage door openers. With more than 40 years of experience, we’ve revolutionized the industry and have played a vital role in taking the garage door opener from a nice-to-have “extra” to a home convenience necessity.

Each model offers the ultimate in safety and security features, and is available with innovative accessories designed to make home access even more convenient. Installation of our models is also fast and easy because each is equipped with our quick-install rail system and easy to follow step-by-step instructions. We offer several super-quiet models, including a 3/4 HPS®* belt drive with EverCharge® Standby Power System that will continue to work even when the power is out.

And to accommodate 8-foot and 10-foot high garage doors, we offer rail extension kits designed to work with our belt drive, chain drive, and screw drive garage door openers.

Should I purchase a new garage door opener or get my old one fixed?

Chamberlain believes it is important that all garage door openers manufactured prior to 1993 be replaced, as opposed to being repaired. This is to insure the highest degree of customer safety and satisfaction.

Chamberlain Position on Garage Door Openers Manufactured Prior to 1993

Chamberlain® is committed to the highest standards of product safety. Over the years, Chamberlain has led the industry in introducing innovative product safety features. Chamberlain has manufactured garage door openers for 50 years with a safety record that ranks as one of the best in the industry.

In the early 1990s, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) enacted into law new rules ensuring that all garage door openers manufactured after 1992 had external entrapment protection devices, such as infrared sensors or sensing edges, in addition to the internal contact reverse mechanism. Garage door openers made prior to 1993 are safe and reliable if installed, tested, and maintained properly. However, the vast majority of these older units are not equipped with infrared sensors or other external entrapment protection devices, and thus do not meet today’s standards for garage door opener safety.

To insure the highest degree of safety and customer satisfaction, Chamberlain believes it is important that pre-1993 garage door openers are replaced, as opposed to being repaired.

In 2008, Chamberlain made the decision to stop supporting the repair of all pre-1993 Chamberlain garage door openers, this includes technical service support and the sale of replacement parts. We believe this decision will provide you with the latest in technology and more safety, security, and convenience features. Chamberlain will not be responsible for warranty or liabilities incurred as a result of someone repairing a pre-1993 (non-infrared or safety sensing) garage door opener.

We believe this decision is in the best interest of our customers, as safety always comes first.
