Thanks for the link Bill, it opened up for me and I see a red 3/4 hp unit on sale for $179.95. A bit over kill for me but it won't allow me to open it up a see the details, it claims I've timed out. I tried to get a model # to get more details but it'* not listed.

Frank:
Use the More Products key to scroll through all the products.

It is on the right side of the page below the first screen of product offerings.

I pressed the more and although it showed many more openers, it didn't show that one that is shown in the picture.

Thanks for trying.

I wish I could afford a new opener. Ours sticks in the winter, and I can't figure out why.

Good luck with the hunt....

Do you have a wood door?

Do door maintenance this weekend if you have 30 minutes. Clean off all the old grease on the hinges and re lube the hinges as well as the rollers in the track. Check the track to make sure there are no loose screws holding it together.

Re lube the GDO chain and the internal motor gears.

I have wood doors and do maintenance twice a year. It makes a big difference.

Sorry for the thread hijack. Now back to the door hunt.

Yes I have a wood door but it will not lock since I removed all the handles and hardware so that no one could try to open the door from the outside.


Well, in the mean time I think I'm going to take apart the opener and see if I can weld the 1/4 rod with the sprocket, to the point where it lasts untill the next sale comes along.

Wish me luck cause it'* raining out. ZZZZZZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP!

[Momentary hijack]My old one used to do that same thing - stick in the winter. Is yours a belt drive? Mine was, and I think it had to do with the belt. I'd lube the rollers, tighten, adjust, etc., but the thing that seemed to work best was using silicone spray lube on the belt. It would free up for a while after. The new one with the jack-screw has never given me a problem. [/hijack]
