Which GDO To Buy?

Posted by cciaffone (My Page) on

My aged Craftsman GDO limit switches are getting
strange, and the logic-board relay that drives the
garage lights has failed. Help me find a replacement.

I can replace it with another Craftsman chain-drive
GDO with 2 in-car buttons, one keyless-entry button,
and the wired button. I understand and can fix most
of the "adjustment" probs with this unit. I know
it pretty well by now.

For a bit more I can get a Genie screw-drive unit with
the same button options. I know nothing about how
this unit works and prob-solving would start at
square 1.

I see tons o' questions about Sears probs on these
forums, but almost none about Genie probs. Is this significant??

Not Craftsman.

Some replies are not very helpful. See the answer to your question in the garage forum.
