    I wanted to test a used garage door opener . I have it across 2 saw benches with the rail and chain attached . I touched a jumper across the common and push button terminal and the chain works and stops properly in both directions.  My question is I didnt think it would work without the safety beam working . I was going to buy the 2 sensors  and mount them on my door opening and use a temporary wire run over to the common and beam terminals so I could test that also . I cant believe it is working , I picked it up at the scrap metal yard for $10.00 .  It is a Linear LDO-50 and looks almost new . Is their any thing else I can test before installing it ? I forgot to ask ,will I be able to test the remote ? I see they sell a 1 or 3 button for that model on this web site . what is the difference . Do they make universal remotes that will work ?

    I don't know how you got an op working with out safety eyes (unless you bypassed board) but sounds like it could work, please get safety eyes hooked up though.

    As far as remotes, the difference between a 3 button and one is exactly that.  One can be programmed to 3 different openers and other just one.  I know liftmaster makes a great universal remote as well (although I haven't tested it on that brand/model)
