i have a garage door opener manufactured by Challenger Inc, 15e Easy St., Bridgewater, NJ. I am unable to find a drive sprocket or parts list anywhere. The model is CH-1000. Patent 4231191 on the opener. Can anyone direct me to where parts are available? If the company has merged with another, I would appreciate that information also. thanks for your help in advance.

I ran accross your posting regarding the Challenger CH-1000. I have two of these one of which has stopped working over the past few days.

It appears that the sprocket is broken.

Can you provide some insight as to how to remove the sprocket from the motor housing.

I have loosen the two nuts at the rear of the motor housing; however, there does not appear to be a straight forward way to get at the sprocket mechanism.

Can you help?

Thanks,

Phil

I don't know if you've already fixed your problem. I stumbled upon your posting while looking for the same part. I took mine apart without any trouble but now having fun finding the replacement. If you still need assistance in removing the bad sprocket let me know...

Just reply to this post and I'll be in touch.

I also am in need of a user manual but for a Series 9500 model CH-1000. Not sure if there is any difference.

Found a manual on their web site http://www.allstarcorp.com/Manuals/Door_Operators/Residential/challenger.htm

but it is different than my opener. I have 3 terminals on the top and 3 on the right and it uses a Stanley Electronics 1090 device.

Any help useful

I need help in removing the gear/sprocket assembly on my Challenger CH-1000 garage door opener. I can't see any way to even get to the gear. Is it possible or am I out a new opener?

Removing sprocket

1. take off cover to opener (don't go further if you can't get past this)
2. Loosen tension on chain. Above door, loosen the 2 bolts that tension the pulley and inch or so.
3. take off 2 of the motor support nuts on just one side and let the motor hang on the bolts one the other side, you can now get wrench in to remove the nut above the motor inside the housing. Put the 2 motor mount nuts back on and move to the other side and do the same thing to remove the nut above the motor on the other side. Leave the motor hanging so the shaft is not engaged with the sprocket. Remove the bolts you took the nuts off of that secure the bracket on top of the rail.
4. Loosen the side nuts on the rail that secure the front of the bracket that hold the sprocket down.
5. I removed the wing nuts and spring off of the bolts on either side of the rail and slid the bolt heads down below the piece they stick up through.
6. Slide the bracket back that is on top of the sprocket. Once it is lifted off, with some twisting the top metal piece will come off and you can slide the chain off and remove the sprocket.

This info comes with no warranty and all that, I am nobody who knows nothing and not a professional by any means. I drink beer on the job. Good luck
