Use the right kind of lightbulbs for your overhead garage door opener. Did you know that using the wrong kind of bulb in your opener can cause all kinds of issues including your remote not working correctly? Yes, it’s true! The light bulbs in your motors are not made to support any and all new LED bulbs. There are different Watt bulbs for the various kinds of openers, for example:
- 8550W Liftmaster ½ HP DC Battery Backup Belt Drive WI-FI Opener uses Max. (2) 100-Watt Regular Lightbulbs, Enhanced CFL Compatible Max 26 Watts
- 8160WB Liftmaster ½ HP DC Battery Backup Chain Drive WI-FI Opener uses Max. (1) 100-Watt Regular Lightbulb, Enhanced CFL Compatible Max 26 Watts
For other brands, it’s best to look in your user manual for maximum watts and type of lightbulbs to place in your opener.
