Installing a replacement garage door opener

Posted by texaninohio (My Page) on

I am about to buy a new GDO to replace an old Stanley that has failed. In addition to the remotes in the cars, I have two wired controls - one is a button, one is a Stanley panel with a button. I also have an external keypad wired into the Stanley panel.

Will the wired controls work with current openers? Or will I need to replace them as well. I am looking at buying a Chamberlain.

Your new opener should come with everything you need with the possible exception of a keypad. The keypad may be extra depending on the model you get. I would use all new and discard the old just to prevent any future problems. Your choice of Chamberlain is a good one.
