First of all, I have to say that when it comes to the Chamberlain garage door opener itself, I have no complaints. On the contrary – out of 4 garage door openers I have had in the past, this is by far the best one as I don’t hear it at all. It is completely silent as opposed to the chain-drive one I had before it. Nevertheless, I have to mention that I was totally confused by the instructions that came with it, since there was way too much paperwork. It took me the entire Saturday afternoon to install it, and later as I thought about all the steps I struggled with, it could have been done in about two hours, tops.
Don’t let the silent operation fool you into thinking that Chamberlain WD962KEV Whisper Drive Garage Door Opener doesn’t have enough power to lift some heavier doors. Take advantage of the smart MyQ technology, as well as the timer-to-close feature and never worry about not closing the garage door again.
