What is required to change a chain garage door opener to the belt system?

Asked by: Sam1111
Nothing. Everything you need comes with the opener. You remove the old door opener, and put in the new one, chain or belt makes no difference.

Does this garage opener come with everything needed to install? I’ve currently go an 20year old opener in place. 

Asked by: Roger S
Yes it does. I did the very same exercise. I replaced a 15 year old Craftsman unit. In fact, I used the existing wiring and sensors.

Hi is it good for 20” wedht and 8” hight garage door???

Asked by: Gurveer
You will need the extension kit for an 8’ high door. The mother is designed for a double wide (17’ wide). 20’ may still be ok

For installation on 8 foot doors, a rail extension kit is necessary, but will the included belt work, or will a longer belt be required for proper operation?

Asked by: Looch
I only have an 6 foot door and the belt was just the right length. I you need a rail extension you would need a longer drive belt.

Does it work even in cold garages? I dont have heater on my garage on winter.

Asked by: Perf
My garage is not heated and so far, we have had temperatures as cold as -10C or 12F and it worked fine. I see no reason why it would not work in the coldest of temperatures.

Belt Drive Garage Door Opener - 1 1/4 HP is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet as a Mouse! I have had 2 Chamberlain 1/2 hp garage door openers and was not overly impressed. However this 1 1/4 hp Whisper Quiet is a total different animal. Extremely quiet as well as powerful, even my dog doesn't hear it open anymore. I'm 69 and found it very easy to install by myself. Help from a friend would make it even easier but not needed. My double wide door is easy to open by hand but when the power was out just last week it was nice the back-up battery did the lifting for me. A little slower but does the job in a pinch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over two years and going strong I didn’t review this when I bought but now after 2 years I am looking for one for my other doors. The DC motor was suggested to me by a garage door installer. They start out and stop gentler than an AC motor. It does seem slower but it could just be because it’s so quiet. I have it on an 18’ door. It has worked well down to -40 outside. The myQ app worked better for me when I first got it than after updates. I’m hoping more updates will help it more user friendly in future. The wall mount motion sensor is awesome at keeping lights on when walking around garage and the battery backup was an added bonus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet and easy to install Purchased to replace my old Chamberlain unit which had the trolley wear out. We purchased this particular one because of the battery backup, but the Wi-Fi operation is also very beneficial. Being able to do that paranoia check after you leave to be sure the door is actually closed is great. Installation took a few hours but was straight forward and relatively easy. I would have given it 5 stars except for the fact that my unit had one light not functioning. I was however able to open the unit up and simply plug the light in from a connector that wasn't plugged inside. An easy fix, but frustrating nonetheless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whisper Quiet - Super Easy to Install Belt Drive I did not get paid or receive anything for this review. I personally purchased and paid for this item on line from Lowe's Canada . You simply will not believe how quiet these new Chamberlain belt drive garage door openers really are. I have a double garage with a single door and all insulated aluminum garage doors are very heavy so I always buy the largest HP opener thats available and on sale. On sale this 1.25 HP unit was almost equal in price to the regular priced 1/2 Hp unit and came with the battery and a keyless entry and 2 remotes and 2 sensors and an easy to use and program wall switch. This unit was replacing a 20 year old Chamberlain garage door opener so I just had to swap the tracks and everything fit perfectly except the front bracket of the new thinner track / rails. I installed the new thinner wall bracket and Installing the new belt drive track was simple and in total took less than 20 minutes. Just make sure the track is perfectly level and that you tighten the belt tension spring as tight as you possibly can " by hand " before releasing the spring tension mechanism. If the belt is not tight enough you can always adjust the spring tension mechanism at any time by hand using a 1/2 wrench that tightens or loosens the square nut on the end of the tension spring. The belt should be about 1/4 inch above the bottom of the steel track. If you do get the belt too tight the door simply will not close and all you do is simply loosen the tension on the belt until the door closes properly. Programming the " Up and Down Door Travel " was equally just as simple. The instructions for this are simple and easy to understand. If the door fails to reverse when it hits the piece of 2x4 on the floor, the door down travel must be increased. I went on "You Tube" and watched the Chamberlain videos before installing my unit and had Zero problems installing or programming anything with my unit. The battery installs with the connectors facing outwards and the green light on the unit will keep blinking until the battery is fully charged. The keyless entry was simple to program on the first attempt ( 30 seconds- 4 digits ) and the 2 remotes work perfectly right from the box. The menu and programs in the wall unit are simple and easy to navigate and to set up and the Wi Fi features are equally just as simple and easy to understand. I recommend this quality product to all and I hope you enjoyed my review and it was helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feature at reasonable price I bought it on the boxing day at $300 online and installed a day after. Very quiet and I'm very satisfied with the product and the price I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional product and service I cannot say enough about the product and installation. Extremely happy with the quality of the Chamberlain garage door opener. It is so quiet we don't hear anything from inside the house. As for the installation, I highly recommend the Lowes installers. The gentleman was kind and professional. It was a great experience overall

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silent. Easy to install and setup Works extremely well. It says review is too short so I'll add some more. I like the colour. Setting up the unit is super easy. You'll like how silent it is.
