Belt Drive Garage Openers Installation and Repair

The sound of a garage door opening may bring your pet running to welcome you home or signal to your family that you need help bringing in the groceries. But if your garage is under your bedroom or next to your family room, you may be dreaming of a quiet garage door opener. Belt drive garage door openers, typically the top-of-the-line among garage door openers, offer whisper-quiet operation and durability. 

Comparison-shopping consumers may initially balk at the price of belt drive garage door openers, but you must keep in mind that you’re paying for more than just noise reduction. In addition to quiet operation, belt drive openers are:

  • Powered by modern drive belts made of fibreglass, polyurethane or steel-reinforced rubber for durability.

  • Backed by better warranties than many less expensive garage door opening systems.

  • Easily maintained.


At Garage One, we recommend the LiftMaster brand of belt drive systems, such as the LiftMaster 8155 with an industrial-strength belt drive system which includes a 10-year belt warranty as well as a variety of safety and security features to protect your family or business.

If quiet operation is your biggest concern, you might also want to consider purchasing a direct drive garage opener.

Belt Drive Garage Opener Maintenance

Belt drive garage openers are durable and will last a long time if properly cared for. Aside from being quiet, another advantage to this style of opener is that they are relatively easy to maintain. Here are a few things you can do yourself to help prolong the life of your system:

  • Use lubricant: Biannually, you should spray all moving parts of the system with a lithium lubricant. Make sure to run the opener a few times after lubrication to help it spread evenly.

  • Check the manual release handle:  If for some reason your belt drive system malfunctions, you still want to be able to open and close your door. Turn off the opener’s power and pull on the release handle to make sure the release mechanism is working properly.

  • Check the door hinges:  A damaged hinge can put extra strain on your belt drive opening system. Periodically check the hinges of your garage door, and schedule an appointment to replace them if necessary.
