7 Quick Tips for Buying Garage Door Opener Parts
You will need to know several details about your garage door opener to select the correct parts for it. Manufacturer name and model number are usually necessary.
To find detailed infomation about your garage door opener, look on the garage door opener power head located on the ceiling of your garage. Usually stickers and identifying information are found on the back or sides of the machine.
Garage door opener manufacturers change the frequency at which remote controls and keypads function periodically, so you will generally need to know the model number of your garage door opener.
Some models of garage door operators use radio gear (remote controls, keypads) from another manufacturer. In this case, you will need to know additional details found on a currently working remote control.
Garage Door Opener Selection Guide
for details specific to your brand of garage door opener.
On each product page there is a section called "Compatible with". This section gives details on manufacturers and models numbers that use the particular garage door opener part, remote control, keypad, gear, or other part.
If you are still not sure which part will work with your garage door opener,
using the web form on the contact us page. Please include details about your garage door opener manufacturer and model number in your question.

Yes, the parts are working fine,thank you for checking.I was very pleased with your service.
From a guy who will never win any awards for mechanical skills, this was a pretty simple product to install. Directions were easy to follow and once installed it has worked perfectly.
from Madison, MS.
Thank You for providing a source for self repair parts. Dealer wanted $80.00 for a service call when with some simple electrical checks it was obvious that the sensors were bad. The new ones installed without a problem and door is back in great working order. Great service and time of shipment. Ordered on Sat and parts arrived on Tues.
from Stephens City, VA.
Replaced Wireless With Wired
Battery operated wireless sensors had failed because battery acid leaked from batteries and corroded the terminals. Sensors were purchased and replaced in accordance with packaging instructions. Took about 1-1/2 hours to replace. Product was as described and worked well after installation. Not 5 stars because thought the mounting "L" brackets could be a bit stronger. Also, use caution with a staple gun. I stapled wires to the garage wall and a staple shorted across the wires because its insulated coating is not that thick. Lastly, the "U" bracket to the "L" bracket carriage bolt nut required a lot of torque (more than what I was used to for this small nut) in order to tighten properly, but it did tighten OK. All in all a good product and I would recommend it to others.
I had no idea why suddenly my garage door would go up but not go down. I googled it and figured out I needed new sensors. I found this website and ordered them. I didn't have time to do the installation right away and I put them aside until I got tired of opening the garage door, pulling the car out, then going back into the garage and pushing the wall button until it closed completely. I thought it would be an easy, quick project... Well I discovered that even though the parts were correct for the opener, the old brackets and sensors were different than the new ones, it's an older opener. Installing the new brackets took a while. Then I recruited my 21 yr old son to route and attach the wires and I did the connections to the opener. We didn't have any problem with the sensor alignment. When I plugged in the opener, the light lit up immediately and with testing performed correctly. I am very happy that my opener is working again! The not so fun part was taking all the old wiring off, ugh those rusty staples all over the garage floor.
from Crescent City, CA.
The 2 senors are installed and working. Installation was easy and quick. I read reviews saying the same as I have stated and it is true. Thank you so much, its nice to be able to close the doors without standing there to hold the button every time. Now it is push the botton and walk away and the doors close.
During the day only the garage door would start down and then go back up. I called a local technician and he said I needed a new opener. After researching the problem of sunlight issues I decided to try the new sensors. They were easy to install and solved my problem. The old sensors had just become too weak in the sunlight. The door and opener work perfectly now and I saved the cost of a new opener. The purchase process was easy and shipping was timely.

Wayne Dalton Infrared Safety Beam Sensors
Very good item.
It did the trick
I had the issue with the door going down about 1 foot then returning to the fully open position with the power head light flashing.. I had the old battery operated electronic eye sensors and they just stopped working. I did all types of trouble shooting to try to figure out what the problem was. I decided that it had to be the sensors because when I put them in align mode and re-aligned them the green light would flash on one unit and the power head light would flash as well.... Not only that, if I closed the door that leads from my house to the garage, the power head light would flash... Weird. I ordered these sensors and got them within 4 days from the day I ordered them. The two sensors came with simple Instructions and everything I needed to hook them up. I tested them before I actually installed by temporarily hooking them up to the power head. They worked flawlessly.

Wayne Dalton Infrared Safety Beam Sensors
My WayneDalton garage door sensor is perfect. It was easy to install. So far, it is working quite well.
Way better than original
The replacement sensors for my WD 2113 are superb. I had considered replacing the entire opener system, but the new sensors did the trick. The WD parts sensors are far better than the originals as they are sealed and rain proof. A necessity here in the tropics...
from Central FL.
I had to replace my flood damaged sensors. These were very easy to install. The wires go to external connections which were easily made.
from Camp Hill, PA.
Great replacement sensors
I was told by the repairman that my Quantum garage door was no longer produced, that they could not do anything to fix it, but he was pretty sure I was correct, and the sensors were bad. At least he referred me to this site. Once ordered, these sensors arrived extremely fast, and they were so easy to install. The hardest part was stapling the wire to the wall, since I didn't want to try to thread it through the drywall. The LED indicator is very helpful in lining up the sensors. Great product.
from Boise, ID.
Perfect! Thank you!
from Covington, LA.
I ordered the paets on Monday and received them Wednesday-Excellent. I am 78 years old and even for me the installation was easy and they worked perfect. I called a local company about installation and they wanted $ 95.00 for a service call plus $ 95.00 per hour with a minimum of one hour charge plus the charge for parts if they used their own. My cost to you including shipping was around $ 60.00 so I figure I saved at least $ 200.00.
from Kannapolis, N. C..
Great product and very easy to install.Total time to complete was about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
from EDEN, N.C. 27288.
Great product, easy to install and great costumer service to make sure I had the right part. Thanks
from Palm City, FL.
This was a great update to my garage door opener. I replaced the wireless safety beams which kept failing due to the high humidity in Florida. The batteries in the wireless units kept corroding on the ends causing them to fail. No more problems with the hard wired units also they were very easy to install.
from Vero Beach, Florida.
got the part as promised, on time and great service.
from new orleans.
Overall the whole process was good from ordering,shipping and self-installing this product. I was told by experts I need a new garage door system because my current one is obselete and parts unavailable. I did some research online matched up model numbers and ordered from this website. My door is going down without holding the button again.
from Charlotte NC.
The product came within 2 days. Also I installed it myself, only took 15 minutes, and works great. Thanks for the product, two thumbs up.
from Connellsville PA.
Hurricane Sandy damaged the infrared Safety Beam, so we re-ordered, installed and they work just like new again.
from Long Beach Island, NJ.
talked with tech support about my problem, they told me to order this item to repair my problem. It corrected as stated...Thanks
from Pinson, Al.
Sensor was very easy to install. The installation took about one hour, most of which was spent routing the wires. The door worked correctly the first time with no adjustments needed.
from Rogers City, MI.
Call the 800 number for advice. She recommended new sensors. Bought them online, shipped quickly and installed per the instructions! I wish they were all this easy!
Bought the sensors for a neighbor that was told that he need a new opener. I checked it and found only need new sensors, to replace a wireless system. The instructions were clear and easy to read. Took about half hour to install and worked great. saved him about $300.00 for the serviceman who only wanted to scam him to a new opener
great company real pleasure
excellant product and quick shipping
from north andover ma.
I HAD A PROBLEM WITH MY GARAGE DOOR NOT GOING DOWN SO I ORDERDED NEW SENSORS AND NOW IT WORKS GREAT
from PSL FLA .
This item arrived very fast and a very easy process to replace my bad sensors. I trust these will last as long as the originals that lasted 17 years.
No issues great replacement to the wireless ones I had and they work great.
from Fort Pierce Florida.
Recwived the replacement infrared sensor. Instruction were clearcut and I soon had our overhead door operating properly
from Landrum, SC.
Product arrived quickly as promised. no issues
These are simple to install and work great!!The customer reps are the greatest.Very helpful and courteous. Installed a control board and door works just fine!!
from Raleigh NC.
Worked great. I only need the photo eye portion and not the mounting hardware or the opposite eye but it works great either way. I also now have spare parts in case the other side goes out. Simple to install and hook up, though I wish you could just get one or the other.
Quality Part, Easy Installation
Our garage door wouldn't shut unless you held down the main button to override the sensors. The light on the sensors wouldn't light up even when they were lined up. I took a chance that it was the sensors, and I lucked out. These were easy to install each sensor has a wire that needs run to the head unit, and the sensors fit into the existing brackets that I already had.
from Pittsburgh. PA.
WD infrared safety beam sensors
Installed the sensors yesterday - good install instructions, work very well.
The sensors are working well!!!
from Eagle River Wi.
This product was very easy to install and it worked great. Much better that the wireless system I used to have.
from Eau Claire WI.
EASY AS PIE!
Replaced the now defunct wireless system with this wired version. Very easy to install and worked first time. I wish the kit included wire staples, but other than that, 5 stars.
from Central Ohio.
Great Product and easy to install. One negative - this is my second time purchasing the product after only 9 months of use. Original lasted 9 years.
I ordered this part and was shipped in a timely manner. The photo looked like the original part, but had only two wirers from each unit as the original had 4 wirers from one unit. Just had to read the cover of instructions to see which set of instructions to use. Worked great and fixed the problem
from Smyrna, Ga..
My sensors of my 17 year old opener failed and I bought this product after a recommendation of the wayne dalton spare parts department. It fit perfectly, was easy to install and brought life back into my machine. Shipping was prompt and advised via e-mail. Bought multiple spare parts now and all worked perfect. Service product tips of this company is the best I have seen so far!
from South Carolina.
I was told thst these would arrive in 2-4 business days. It took just 3 days! Right on schedule! Thanks! After the service man installed them the door has been working perfectly. Thanks for the on-time service with the right parts!
from Peoria, IL.
Sensors were received as described and did correct the issue of my garage door suddenly reversing when trying to close. What I suspect was that the splice in the original wiring started to fail. One set of wires from the emitter, one set of wires from the receiver; the two were spliced together behind the sheetrock, with one set of wires then going to the opener. I had a very difficult time in aligning the original emitter/sensor pair, but was a cake walk to align the new emitter/sensor pair.
from Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
Received my sensors within a few days. Working great. Thank you.
Safety Beam Sensors
My safety beams had failed which can happen and left me with a door opener that did not have total function. The new factory replacment sensors were exactly what I needed to correct this and these worked 100% right. Great item for me.
from Greenville, WI.
After reading message boards I decided the problem with my door reversing was due to faulty sensors. So I ordered these and in a matter of minutes my problem was solved! Easy to install, in fact we used the existing wiring and just spliced the new sensor to the old wiring.
Very easy to install, the beam lined up without any effort at all. Highly recommended
from Upstate NY.
This fixed my problem and was easy to install.
Thanks to the trouble-shooting suggestions in the operator's manual, our door problem was due to "broken" safety beam sensors. Replacing them with the new parts did the job. We only needed the sensors and not the metal brackets or extra wire. I was disappointed to see that the replacement sensors were also made in China. But, what isn't any more? The lady who took the order was very courteous and shipping worked out well. We are completely satisfied with the parts order.
Out of all the sites I searched for these sensors, your prices were unbeatable. The part shipped right away and I received them before expected. The sensors are installed and the work great! I have tagged your site in my favorites folder. Thanks.
Fast shipping, thanks guys.
Got the sensors with install hardware. Installed it with included instructions and it works perfect.
Just what I asked for and easy install. Should have done this 10 years ago
