Is your Overhead Door garage door opener making an unusual humming sound?Overhead Door 2029


The problem may be a faulty transformer located inside your garage door opener motor head. This can be a common problem in garage door openers utlizing DC motors such as the Overhead Door Phantom (777CD) or even the newer model Overhead Door Legacy 850 (2029).


For example, if you encounter a humming noise in either the Overhead Door Legacy 850 (model #2029) or Standard Drive 650 (#1029) with a date code prior to 15198, the manufacturer recommends to replace the transformer (part #39342RS).
