Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. The unit you are considering has a door weight limit of 350 lbs. so it is not likely to be compatible with your door.

Answer: 
1/2 hp is a bit light to handle some of the heavier doors. I believe you would be better served (and longer) with either a 3/4 or even better, a 1 hp unit. The heavier door places an over-strain on the smaller unit, thus reducing its life span.

Answer: 
Since the door is opened with the assistance of springs, the weight of the door itself is not going to determine if an opener is appropriate. If the spring is properly sized for the door, the door should open and close with limited effort. However, this may not always be the case. It is always a good idea to check with the door manufacturer to see what they recommend. There is normally a tag on the door Read More

Answer: 
I'm guessing it will work, but I doubt it will last long. Wood doors are very heavy and added to your situation is a even heavier double door. I would opt for the highest horsepower out there and go through the installation process only once.

Answer: 
The opener uses the entire length of the track to "hold" the door. If the track was shorter, the door wouldn't lift high enough for your car to clear under it. I don't believe it is possible to reduce the length of the track to accommodate your structure, but you certainly could add some cross braces in the right place for your motor to reinforce the attachment area.

Answer: 
The length of this unit installed is 124 inches, so you would need to cut down the rail and reduce the chain drive length to fit your application. Details would be in the manual to explain how or our Customer Service Team could walk you through the process. You can call them 1-800-354-3643.

Answer: 
Your best bet is to read the specs of the model or better yet contact Genie directly. They are very helpful. I would guess that if you had to cut the track yourself, you would also need to shorten the chain. Doing this will probably void your warranty. Again, checking with Genie would be the best thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product - requires mounting material It could have been because I didn't remember seeing it - but the opener doesn't come with the material needed to actually mount it to your ceiling. Luckily I was replacing an old one so I was able to reuse what I had. Overall - great product and easy to install. It was me (female) and one of my friends (female) and it took us about 4 hours to take down the old opener and put up the new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement Gagarge Door Opener I am not a handy, mechanical, or electrical person. I bought this to replace the old genie garage door opener that came with the house. The price was very good. I had thought about paying someone to do it, but thought I would try to do it myself. I started at 9 am on a Saturday and completed the installation of the new one as well as the uninstall of the old one at 4PM Tracks, wiring, sensors, and head all were replaced. Following the directions I was able to do this on my own. This one is much quieter than the old one and looks much better as well.
