21 yr old garage door open quit working from remotes, searched the globe for replacement logic board - and chamberlain quit making them so none to be had.
Bit the bullet and bought brand new chamberlain unit, it is mechanically the same design as the 21 yr old one - but the RF frequencies are new (security 2.0) - the SAAB remote won't work with the new RF unless I buy a $25 compatability bridge. Is this progress ?
For now back to using the remote clipped to the visor.
And speaking of planned obsolesence - 14 yr old Sears (Frigidaire) refrigerator dies right at 14 yrs old - avg lifespan. In looking at new ones - Frigidaire makes what is pretty much the exact unit 14 yrs later, so I bought a Samsung.
