    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sommer 3/4hp Garage Door Opener Well, it's true, this is the quietest garage door opener I've ever heard. Not knowing about this Sommer opener, as it is not carried in most home depot stores (I don't know why?), I was about to purchase the competition's product. Then I saw it online on the home depot website and found only ONE Home Depot store about 30 km away that carried them. I picked one up the next day and installed it myself. I am so glad I bought this unit. It is so, so quiet, made of high quality components and easy to install and program with it's two included remotes. I had to buy a wireless keypad as this unit does not come with one. I think one should be included with the garage door opener. Although it doesn't offer all the bells and whistles like some of the competition, I would happily buy another Sommer without hesitation. Oh, my garage door is insulated steel and is 8 feet X 16 feet and the unit easily opens the door. Also, with the competition, I would be forced to buy a $70 extension kit for my 8ft door and I think this is ridiculous. The Sommer unit can open an 8ft door right out of the box. No extension needed. Great product and highly recommended!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST I have had 3 or 4 different types of door openers over time. Buying this one was the right decision. So quiet. So positive with its operation. I have had this opener for the past 4 months. No problems. I expect it to give me trouble free operation and enjoyment for years to come. I will highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Garage Door opener EVER! This is an awesome garage door opener. My husband and I installed it 6 months ago. Just a couple of user error issues, but we did it ! We never would have even attempted to install a chain drive opener. Extremely quiet. We are building another house and will have 2 garage doors. We will have 2 Sommer openers (if we can find them...they are becoming scarce!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great opener, easy to install I had a screw drive Genie opener and had nothing but problems. It would stop opening so I had to unplug the electricity and then it would work again. Screw drive broke, tract guide would strip every year and had to install new ones, WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK, don't buy one. Got the Direct Drive and other than one mistake on the assembly it was pretty straight forward (just make sure the contact for the drive is in the right direction, down). It is so quite my wife doesn't know when I come home now, good for me. Not as fast as the Genie, but looking forward to many trouble free years, plus this has a lifetime warranty, any thing breaks and they send me the parts. Great customer service with no long phone time waiting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An innovative product I have a 7X12 wooden garage door. I installed the door opener in about 5 hours. It is a straight forward process with clear instructions. On first use I was amazed at how quiet it runs. After getting the correct stopping points adjusted it takes two up down cycles to self learn the tension of the door. I've been using for a few days now and love it. The design is innovative and it is a compact installation. The 3/4HP drive motor is the only moving part driving a chain sprocket that runs up and down a stationary chain in the rail. It uses sturdy sliding contacts to get its 24V power so there are no wires externally to the motor. Power comes from a contact in the control unit that simply pushes onto the rail. Time will tell if this sliding power contact system will have longevity. To me it is the only potential weakness. I don't see why anybody would dislike this garage door opener and it was reasonably priced for such a quality unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sommer 550 3/4HP Garage Door Opener I purchased my home 2 1/2 years ago. The semi-detached garage was added on in 1997; it is not a heated garage and the old Stanley door opener struggled during our cold Saskatoon winter temperatures. Last summer I tried to lubricate everything that moved in the hopes that it would work better in winter, but as soon as the cold weather hit it was the same old same old, so I decided to find a replacement. I looked at the big names with the belt drives and chain drives but the Sommer opener with the motor being the only moving part intrigued me. When you are dealing with sticky moving parts due to cold weather the fewer moving parts you have the better! I ordered the Sommer from the Home Depot website on a Tuesday and it arrived on schedule Friday afternoon, and since we were having some warmer weather (0 C) at the time I went right at it and began the installation. Having never done this before, it took me 6 hours, including the time to remove the old opener. The installation was easy; I worked from the instruction manual provided and had no problems. I had previously watched two online instruction videos on installing this particular model and having done this, the installation manual made a lot more sense, so I would recommend to the buyer that they do the same. That was last weekend, and one week later the cold weather (-32 C) has returned with a vengeance! The new opener is working fine, my wife is happy and therefore so am I! It functions very quietly and most of what you hear is the door itself. It is just slightly slower than the old opener was, but not enough to be a problem. One other thing to mention is that the model that is supplied by Home Depot is the new model (1042V001) with 310 MHz remotes and rolling code for additional security; up until last June the previous Sommer opener (1041V000) had 315 MHz remotes without rolling code. The only issue we have encountered is with the remotes. The are designed as key fobs, and although a visor clip is provided for them, they have small recessed buttons which are difficult to press when you are wearing heavy winter gloves in a cold car. I would like to see a larger, more conventional remote with large buttons made available for these openers. Other than that I am very pleased with the Sommer and recommend it to the purchaser.

    Is Sommer 550garage door opener HomeLink compatibile??

    The hand held transmitter- which features are pre -programed ??
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Sommer 550 garage door opener is HomeLink compatible. There are 2 buttons on the hand held transmitter that can be programmed in the opener to operate opening and closing the door, and separate control of the light on and off. No features are pre-programmed into the hand held transmitter, the buttons just send out 2 different signals at the frequency that your HomeLink can replicate to control operations of the opener that you program into it.

    do you sell the sommer 3 ft rail extension kit (part #1634) to go with the 550 or 800 operator?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    When I purchased this opener about 1 month ago, home depot did not sell the extension kit. You can order the extension kit directly from Sommer's website, though you cannot order the opener itself from their website.

    What are included in the package?

    There are insufficient information. What are included in the package? Does it come with the wireless keypad and so forth?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    All the necessary hardware for the opener including the photocells, a wall mounted control for inside the garage, and two remotes for use in autos. A numeric keypad for mounting outside is optional at $55.

    Does it really work for an 8 feet high door?

    I was checking Sommer's website and I don't find this model (1040V000). On the website, every garage door opener comes with the specific rail (for 7 or 8 feet doors)
    Asked by: Anonymous
    no, needs a different rail (longer = more travel)
