Chamberlain Battery Replacement: Size,Changing and Protection
Chamberlain garage door is known for its quality and smart features. The quality they offer makes it one of the most commonly used garage doors by many people.
Since Chamberlain garage doors are smart doors, it is necessary for us to know its parts. From the kinds of belts they use to the batteries, everything should be known properly. For those who want to know more about their Chamberlain garage door parts, you have come to the right place. Here, we will talk about them, especially their batteries.
What size battery does a Chamberlain garage door opener use?Chamberlain garage doors consist of many parts, but the main parts are usually the motor drives. Motor drives are the drives that allow the garage door to be opened. Without it, there is no way the garage door can be controlled properly.
For motor drives, Chamberlain offers four types you can pick. They are:
Belt drive is the most common drive that is used by residential houses. It makes sense though, since belt drive is smooth and quiet. Yes, when they open the garage door, there won’t any odd or loud noise. It also won’t disturb the neighbors thanks to its voiceless system.
The reason for the system’s voiceless process is because of the material of the belt. In this case, they use rubber-like belts. Won’t they be afraid of the belt snapping? Don’t worry because the belt is already steel-reinforced. So, the belt won’t snap whatsoever, and we’ll get an effortless and quiet drive that is perfect to be placed next to the bedroom!
As the name states, chain drive literally uses a “chain-like” belt for opening the garage door. The drive uses a bike chain look-alike for opening the door, and the item that helps the chain to work properly has the shape of a gear.
The chain drive is perfect for heavy garage doors such as aluminum doors. Moreover, the drive can last for a long time despite its inexpensive price, making it a favorite among factories or any working space.
The drive is “smart” because it can be controlled using the phone and internet connection using Chamberlain’s myQ? App. Besides opening the garage door, you can also get alerts regarding the activities of the door, set a schedule so that the doors can be opened automatically, turn the lamps on or off automatically, and sync with other smart devices at home.
A wall mounted Chamberlain garage door opener is pretty much the same with other openers. What makes them different, however, is the location of the “machine” that makes everything worry.
Usually, they would place the system in the middle of the ceiling. For wall mount garage doors, however, they would place it at the side of the garage door. The position is perfect for those who like to move items back and forth into the garage, as this gives more space for the items. You won’t have to worry having those items bump onto the door opener’s system.
Besides the drives, you will need to know the type of opener you need and the battery backup that can help you to open the door when the light is out.most Chamberlain garage door opener uses the same type of battery, which is 3V CR2032 coin cell batteries.
Pretty surprising, isn’t it? That the garage door opener would use small coin cell batteries for their system. But that is how it is, and the fact that the batteries can be bought easily in normal retails gives us less work when it comes to buying a battery replacement or backup batteries.
How do you change the battery in your Chamberlain?Thankfully, changing the battery in the Chamberlain system is pretty easy. However, to prevent unnecessary trouble from happening, it’s best to have someone who can assist you or use safety tools (such as gloves) during the process.
Here are the steps to change the battery in Chamberlain:
1.Open the case that is located in the middle, then the ones at the sides using a visor clip.
2.Take out the old battery. Keep them at a safe location.
3.Put the backup battery inside. It should be noted that the battery’s positive side is up, while the negative side is at the bottom.
4.Put the covers back together again, in the same steps with that of number one.
When changing the battery, make sure that you only use 3V CR2032 coin batteries.it is unsure whether other batteries will work (most likely not as it is not recommended by the brand itself).
Besides the battery type, you should also not do anything when the heat is above 100 degree celsius. Yes it includes recharging or disassembling the parts.
How do you protect your Chamberlain battery?Protecting Chamberlain batteries is the same as protecting other batteries. Protecting the batteries means that we should keep it away from excessive heat, as heat is known to damage batteries if the batteries keep being exposed to heat.
The backup batteries should be stored safely in a place that is out of reach from children. They are small in size, and putting them in a place that can be reached by children can make them swallow the shiny objects without us noticing it. If someone swallows the battery, please go to the emergency room as soon as possible.
