Genie or Chamberlain garage door openers?
« on: July 11, 2014, 08:56:23 AM »
My 20+ year old Stanley 1/2hp opener is starting to be a PIA.  Any recommendations on a replacement?

I have two Chamberlain openers. The openers work fine,  but one of the doors likes to throw a wheel off its track if you look at it wrong. I've been getting pretty good with a hammer.

I don't think it matters. I installed our Genie Screwdrive in 1998 and I lubricate it every few years and thus far have not had any issues.
