LiftMaster Jackshaft Garage Door Opener

Discontinued - Use Liftmaster 8500 Elite Garage Door Opener

The LiftMaster Residential Jackshaft Garage Door Opener has been specially designed for garages with unique applications that will not allow for a traditional garage door opener. In your typical garage, it will also maximize space and allow for overhead storage.
This specially designed door opener is mounted to the wall beside the garage door. It frees up ceiling space that can now be used for maximum storage. The powerful DC motor provides ultra-quiet operation, along with smooth start and smooth stop to reduce the noise of the garage door as it opens and closes. This unique system also offers the added option of a battery backup system to let you get in and out of your garage, even when the power is out.

Power Lock
Once your garage door goes down, it's securely locked with the power lock. Similar to a deadbolt, it ensures the door cannot be forced open.
Manual Release Handle
In case of a power failure this feature releases the garage door for manual operation. One ull disengages the opener from the door and another pull re-engages the opener
The Protector System
Projects an invisible light beam across garage door opening. If interrupted while the door is closing the opener reverses before making contact. If beam is obstructed door will not close.

Great Opener
Now that I have the 3800,I would never go back to the old chain drive opener. This past winter my neighbors garage door lifted and buckled in the center,as the chain drive pulled as the door was frozen to the floor. I have an insulated core door with windows which has developed a crease on the top panel. I bought the 3800,and installed it myself, to prevent and more damage to my thousand dollar door. The quiet movement, the security lock,the lighting system, I'm impressed. I'm bragging about how much I love it.

Wow! I have to say this was one of the best investments I've ever made. A door company came out and told me it would be more than $600.00 to put an opener in because of my low ceiling. I installed the liftmaster in a few hours and it works great! Made some serious brownie points with the wife. Thanks Liftmaster! Marty

LiftMaster RJO 3800: easy to install, instructions easy to follow. Simple to program. The LCD on the control console was defective. Wayne Dalton shipped a replacement unit immediately. Downside - control console has to be hardwired to door opener. Thoughtful location of control limits this concern. Hard-wiring allows LCD to display troubleshooting messages. Noise level is low. Garage door emits less noise, operates smoother. The RJO 3800 is a "Smooth Operator".

Great Opener
Long time iDrive user. When the motor failed for the second time, I called...found out it is no longer made. The RJO-3800 is the replacement, & it's easy to install, is quieter than the iDrive, easier to setup, & the remotes work great! Very satisfied !

Very easy to install. Works better than my IDrive. Had a slight programming the limits. Cost me $75.00 to have a tech. come over to help me. Liftmaster should have a DVD for installation and programming. I do recommend this unit.

I highly recommend the Wayne Dalton Parts company.
I have an 11 foot high ceiling in my garage, and a Perfect Park 7000 lift in the stall. I have room for my 40 Ford above, and a sedan below, with only inches to spare. Space wise, I need a shaft mounted opener to make everything work. My previous Idrive opener failed after only 5 years, so I replaced it with the RJO-3800. I installed it myself with no complications, however I recommend the following video for reference during installation; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-6y2cJDbF0&list=PLBA3CA8AE44E544C8 The installation took me about 6 hours with no surprises, and everything works well. It is a great opener. By the way, I am 77 years old, and the six hours included my usual nap. I highly recommend the Wayne Dalton Parts company. They were very helpful providing information about the replacement of my old opener with the RJO-3800, their price was right, they shipped promptly, and they were courteous.

Lifemaster RJO-3800 works really well
The Liftmaster RJO-3800 Jackshaft Opener made a very nice replacement for my defective Wayne Dalton iDrive. Installation is easy for the DIY'er...two hours to mount, wire, calibrate, and hand the remote control to my wife. It’s robust, doesn't labor, quiet, easy mounting. Calibration sequence (setting stops and forces) seems more complex than necessary. WayneDaltonPARTS is operated by people of integrity who want to serve their customers well. I'd certainly do business again!
