If your garage has no pedestrian 

entrance door, an emergency key release 
should be installed.  This accessory allows 
manual operation of the garage door from 
outside in case of power failure.

•  The unit should be installed so that it is 

protected from the elements. It should not 
be exposed to water or rain. It is not to be 
immersed in water or sprayed directly by a 
hose or other device.

Sticking or binding doors must be repaired 
by a qualified garage door installer prior to 
installation of the opener.

•  DO NOT

 operate the opener unless the 

garage door is in full view and free from 
objects such as cars and children/people. 
Make sure that the door has finished moving 
before entering or leaving the garage.

Obstruction Force is working correctly, and 
is tested and set as per this manual. Failure 
to follow these instructions could result in 
serious personal injury and/or property 
damage. This test must be repeated 
at regular intervals and the necessary 
adjustments made as required. In order for 
the opener to sense an object obstructing 
the door way, some force must be exerted 
on the object. As a result the object, door 
and/or person may suffer damage or 
injury.

•  DO NOT 

disengage the door opener to 

manual operation with children/people or 
any other objects including motor vehicles

FEATURES

Thank you for purchasing the 

d-force

TM

 Overhead Garage Door Opener. Designed to 

suit sectional overhead and one piece tilt up doors, the components and materials used 
ensure this opener will provide years of simple and secure operation. Listed below are 
some of the many features:

OPERATION 

To open or close the door simply press a button on the hand-held remote transmitter or wall mounted 
transmitter. During open and close cycles the door can be stopped by pressing the button again. The 
next push of the button will reverse the door’s direction.

CODE HOPPING TECHNOLOGY

Every time a transmitter is used a new security code is randomly generated from millions of possibilities. 
This greatly enhances the security of the system and makes “code grabbing” a thing of the past.  

ELECTRONIC LIMIT DEVICE

Electronic Limits does away with manual adjustment of the door’s limits position. 

SAFETY OBSTRUCTION SYSTEM

 

While the door is performing a close cycle, should it hit an obstacle or be restricted in some 
manner, it will automatically reverse. The door will also stop if restricted whilst opening. The Safety 
Obstruction Force should be checked monthly.

AUTO COURTESY LIGHT

 

The courtesy light comes on automatically for 2 minutes whenever the door is activated. 

BATTERY BACK-UP

The opener is fitted with a Battery Back-up kit for operation in the event of a power outage, or where  
mains power access is not available.  NOTE: If the door is the only entrance to the garage, and a 
battery backup kit is not fitted, an Emergency Key Release System (E.K.R.) should be fitted externally 
to the garage.

MANUAL OPERATION 

The opener is equipped with a manual disengaging device. If the power to the opener is disrupted, 
the door can be put into manual mode by pulling down on the Manual Release Mechanism string 
handle at an angle towards the door. This allows for the manual operation of the door. To re-engage 
the opener, pull the string handle away from the door.

Before programming the garage door opener, ensure that the door will open 
and close easily and smoothly using manual operation. Use the Manual Release 
Mechanism string handle to disengage the opener from the door, this will allow you 
to operate the door manually/by hand while holding the rope.

If the door does not operate easily and smoothly on manual, it is important to call a professional door 
technician to inspect and make the necessary adjustments to the door.

LEAVE THE GARAGE DOOR ON MANUAL OPERATION UNTIL THE DOOR HAS BEEN PROPERLY ADJUSTED.

Preparation

Re-engage the door by releasing your hold on the Rope Handle. Run the door on automatic mode or 
move the door by hand until the Release Mechanism latches to the Traveller. 

Ensure the door is in the closed position prior to programming.

Read all the instructions on programming before commencing.

Adjust Obstruction Sensing and Force 

- not recommended

IMPORTANT 

Force and Obstruction Sensing
The higher the force is set the less sensitive the motor will be at sensing an obstruction 
while the opener is opening or closing the door.

Obstruction sensing should be set at the most sensitive setting to ensure the operating safety of the 
door.  The force should therefore be set as low as possible, enough for the door to operate smoothly 
without stopping during operation.

There are 4 settings for the opening function and 4 settings for the closing function.
NOTE : One Flash indicates the minimum force setting.
•The minimum force setting should always be used, most importantly in the door closing setting.

The 

 LED indicates the force set for the door in the opening direction.
