JESSICA5 - hi, did you buy the unit used from someone? If so, it appears they didn't give you the bracket that mounts to the door. That bracket connects to the end of the chain drive and is what pulls the door open/pushes it closed. If you didn't get a bracket, you may find a suitable one at your local big-box stores. You should be able to find installation instructions on the web as well. Good luck! Jim D/West Point, VA

I have two of these CH 1000 Door openers working in my garage.

The chain runs to an idler sprocket

attached to the wall above the door.

One of those push-pull rods attaches

one end to the door about a foot below the top & the other end of the rod attaches to a slider that the chain pulls back and forth. There are stops on the chain that hit the stops on the drive unit which reverses the direction of the chain next time it's actuated.

If you'll send me an email at

I'll send you a picture or two of it.

Where in the world did you purchase the door drive assembly? I need one of the circuit cards that mount inside the drive unit, but I'd be glad to purchase the whole assembly just to get the card - - - unless it costs a zillion bucks.

I bought a home with two of these openers installed. It seems I need to make an adjustment on the downforce and how far the door travels going down. Can anyone reply with how to adjust the downforce and stopping point of these (Wayne Dalton Wizard 2115, and Challenger CH 1000 are both model numbers on the boxes).

you may email me also at

I have two units and recently one did not respond (when open/close button pushed, only light was turned on and make a click sound). I replaced the capacitor and no success. I took off the control circuit board out but believe there its difficult to check if it is faulty (unless I switch it with the one is working). Anyone has the control circuit board Manuel? or anyone has the old assembly and no longer need it? Will buy the circuit board. Thanks.
