The switch from our old operator to this new Genie was relatively simple. The operator was hung on the same brackets, the length of the rail was the same as the old one. We did run new wires, but it could have been less time consuming if we had used the existing wires. The new system works very well, is very quiet and fast. Total install took the two of us about six hours, but the re-wiring was a huge contributor to this. The installation instructions were easy to follow. The plastic cover for the lights does seem very cheap and flimsy, but I put in LEDs, so should not have to touch the cover for a long time.

The 1hp screw drive opener opens the door with ease and the riding mower I bought 11 years ago still runs great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Farmboy Real men don't read instructions!
Easy to install, quite, smooth. A bit confusing to figure the buttons out and program the up/down limits but actually figured it out. Then I read the instructions

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chopperssc Great opener for one piece wood doors
When my old Chamberlain screw drive opener died (it was 25 years old) I bought another Chamberlain opener.
I bought the quiet belt drive, what a piece of junk, I installed it, and the Chamberlain could barley open the door with a 1 HP motor.
I took it down and returned it, what a waste of time.
I bought the Genie screw drive, right away I saw that the opener quality was way superior to the Chamberlain.
Fairly easy to install the Genie, it took me about 2 hours, from start to finish.
This opener opens the door with ease and is quiet.

I have had Genie screw drive openers for over 40 years. I bought this one to replace the linear chi drive that came with our condo and finally gave out. The Genie was very, very easy to install (as they all have been). I am not a big fan of the change Genie made in the track, changing from the inverted "T" shape to this channel style. It is not a big deal, I just prefer the original style. The only reason I gave this four stars (I would actually give it 4-1/2 if I could) is the noise it makes. The track makes a lot of noise when the carriage passes the points where the channel connects together. I guess there is nothing to be done about it. I had my garage door serviced about a week after I installed the opener. The service man said"That is the way they sound. It is running just fine". The best of my memory is they were a LOT quieter in the past. Maybe it is that new channel set up instead of the inverted "T" . Anyway it is a great product with a great reputation, is easy to install and except for that noise, operates wonderfully. I would recommend this product to anyone.

I did a lot of research and landed on this one. My old opener gave out and it was time to replace it. This one was a good price, came quickly, was easy to install and is quiet and smooth running. I've had it in now a few months with no issues.

The garage door opener. Is working great. Just make the is doing the job right. No fast job. Broke the outside key pad. Had to call Manager at Home Depot. Explain to him what happen. While talking to home depot. The contractor said he spoke his boss. Told him to use an spareone from truck. So because of contractor I am given them a 3.5 stars.
