Default Note>Your Garage door opener isn't a "ROMAC" MVP!

I've seen several posts referring to "Ro-mac" MVP garage door openers and Romac isn't the manufacture of the opener, Romac is the local installer or supplier used by The Villages. Romac has put a decal on the AllStar MVP opener installed in most new homes and it looks like its a ROMAC MVP opener. If you look closely at the decal you will see it indicates Ro-mac Lumber and supply company.

How did I come to this discovery?
My garage door opener wouldn't open one night after a lightning strike in the area and when I looked at the unit I also assumed it was a ROMAC MVP garage door opener. After waiting over a week for ROMAC to come out and fix it they told me they don't use those openers any longer and would have to replace it with a new one. But they didn't have one on the truck and couldn't get one to replace it with until next week. I was upset since I had waited for them to come out and repair my opener and I told them it was a lighting strike and they didn't have a replacement when they came out???

When they came back a few days later they replaced it with a Linear LDC 800 opener that has a different inside switch opener and outside switch opener. Interesting when the repairman came back with the new unit he told me he didn't have the tool to take off the MVP controller?? When I said "You put it in, he told me he didn't". Luck I had a tool that would remove the MVP switch inside screws for the controller.

So there are a few lessons here:
1. Ro-MAC isn't the manufacture they are the installer or supplier to the contractor who built your house. Since RO-MAC didn't even have the tool to remove the inside screws from the switch it leads me to believe the contractor may have installed the unit?
2. RO-MAC is no longer using MVP openers for some reason. They claim it makes less noise (not a big deal to me).
3. If your codes on your opener weren't reset to unique ones its probably due to the installer/contractor not doing it.
4.If you have a MVP garage door opener and something needs repair I would call around and see if other garage door opener repair/supply companies still repair or install MVP units.

You might try this: Pull the cord to release the opener from the track. See if you can open the door by hand. Then go from there.

I have 2 MVP garage remotes one works and the other doesn’t. They maybe 12 years old if original could it be the battery?

Yes, definitely.
