Garage Door Opener Installation & Repair by Sears

The nucleus of any garage door system is its opener. Easily overlooked, garage door openers are highly complex pieces of equipment, often containing dozens of intricate parts that work simultaneously with one another to consistently raise and lower your door. You'll know that you're getting the best from Sears as it's the home to America's #1 Garage Door Opener Brand, Craftsman*.

Below you will find the top 4 items to consider when looking at purchasing a new garage door opener.

Power Ratings

Sears' Craftsman garage door openers have power ratings to accommodate any home's needs. From ½ to 1 ¼ horsepower, our experts can work directly with you to determine the most appropriate opener for your garage door.

Drive Mechanism

Sears offers two different drive mechanisms to accommodate your home and budget. If you're looking for a smooth and quiet opener for a garage door with rooms located above the garage or attached to the garage, the belt drive is going to be the best for you. You can also choose a chain drive opener, which is perfect for garages that are unattached to the home.


Sears offers some of the strongest warranty packages in the industry. Up to a lifetime on the door sections on all the Sears Carriage House Collection and Sears' three-layer Traditional Steel Collection garage doors. Sears warranties on labor and hardware is as good as, or better than, other garage door brands.

Battery Backup is also included with select garage door openers. This feature allows your garage door opener to work without power for up to 20 cycles to ensure you will be able to access the garage during a power outage. This is a critical component to many homeowners who rely on the garage as the main entry point to the home.


If you want to connect your new garage door to your smartphone, then you're in luck! The Craftsman AssureLink™/SmartControl Internet Gateway allows you to monitor and operate your garage door from anywhere with your internet-enabled smartphone, cell phone, laptop, or tablet via the Craftsman AssureLink™ mobile app or web-interface.

It's Perfect for those times when you are away from home and can't remember if you have closed your garage door or provide access to your home (via garage door) as needed for family, friends, deliveries, etc. when you aren't at home

With multiple options and the ability to consult with a trained garage door opener expert we are certain we have the right opener to meet your needs. Please take a few moments to review the options below and explore the features, and functions each opener provides.

I felt the price was a little high for the area. Also, the garage door opener that the serviceman fixed is no longer working. I'd like to have him return and fix it again. Thanks.

this person was good and noticed the previous Sears technician did not install a support beam to the garage door opener which caused heavy vibrations and resulted in the unit pulling out of our ceiling. We appreciate Sears making things right.

Jared did an outstanding job! He explained everything to me in detail. He cleaned up afterwards and took pride in his job. He took his time and didn't rush everything and did his job properly. If I purchase another door opener in the near future, I would like Jared to do the install if possible! Baron Spaulding Colonel, U.S. Army Retired

We had a great experience with Steve McComber and with the installer! Both were very nice and knowledgeable. We love the new garage door. We chose the 3 panel, mahogany, with prairie insert windows and it looks fantastic on our house. We were amazed by how quiet the new opener is compared to our old one. Thank you!

Although I have the same car as I had with the previous Sears garage door opener I cannot program my built in car door opener to open or close this new door. I need the serviceman come out and show me what I'm doing wrong. The garage door opener service manual doesn't have the answer.

This technician was very competent and performed the services in an outstanding manner. He also suggested additional items needing work on our garage door opener so that it performs much better. It also appears I ordered the wrong door openers, but he was able to input the correct code so that we can use them. We were very satisfied with all of his services.

I have had my garage door opener on the Sears service program since we purchased it years ago. This is the first time I had to pay for a remote.s l Several have been replace over the years. The technician contacted his supervisor and was told we had to pay for the replacement remote, which was part of the original purchase.

The technician called to see if he could arrive early due a cancellation in the morning, and was at the house within a few minutes. He installed the new opener and took away the non-working old opener. He explained how all the controls worked and provided information on good maintenance. The new opener is working fine.

Our Technician, Hugh, was awesome. He explained things very clearly, worked diligently to install a non-craftsman garage door opener and was a pleasure to have done work at our home. I would definitely recommend Hugh and his company to anyone and will definitely have him return to our home if we require any garage door services in the future.

The new opener was installed yesterday and today for a while it wouldn't close properly. The customer service representative said they will probably have to reverse the sensors. However, no one could come out today (Friday) or tomorrow. She will call me by Tuesday of next week to schedule someone to come here. The customer service rep. and the technician were nice but as of now, my new garage opener is not working to my satisfaction.

The gal , (Debbie) worked very well at getting me a date & time for installation that was workable for me. The installer (Howard) was on time, quick and personable. He explainned all of the benefits of the Opener in detail. I hope the opener is as quality as the team who performed the service.

He was professional and courtesy. He cleaned up after the install and programmed each remote. Additionally provided me instruction on how to operate new opener and answerde all my questions.
July 25, 2012 5
At the time of installation, I learned that I needed extra equipment installed, etc. so that I ended up paying an additional amount, more than I had paid originally for the opener and the installation. The workmanship was good, but I was left feeling skeptical and I would proceed more cautiously in future.
March 21, 2012 5
Joe W. was on time, efficient and very nice. He explained the various functions of the opener controls and I would have him back if needed in the future. I am very satisfied with his work. Thanks, Joe.
