Answer: 
The GWC-R is designed to light up. If the button does not light please disconnect the wires from the back of the wall button and reconnect the wires to the opposite terminals on the back of the wall button and the light will come on.

My old genie switch operating since 1992 has one push button for opening and closing the door and another sliding button for on and off position for light. The light would come up every time the door opened if this slider is left at on position. There is also another slider button for making the push button non functional if this second slider button is left at off position.

Answer: 
We had a four wire wall console before. To replace it, you would want to use a Universal non-lit push button. You will put two wires on one terminal, and two wires on the second.

Answer: 
I have a Genie Garage Door Opener and it has worked fine. I think as long as you have two (2) wires that lead from your opener to where your switch is this should work find. It's just a switch, so if you have only two (2) wires to connect to it, you're OK.

Answer: 
Hi pokeman,
The button in question is a direct wired switch that is compatible with any garage door opener that has the capacity to attach wires to the motor.
For specific inquiries, call Genie Customer Care 1-800-354-3643 for assistance.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by new push button for Garage door opener The Garage door button that came with the Garage door opener, kept getting caught inside the unit and was difficult o use. The replacement button is much smaller, looks like a door bell button and works easily. Installation was less than 10 minutes. September 6, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Garage Door Opener Replaced old switch. Works ok. This one is not lighted. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Switch This is a great switch with a nice action. It's a quality switch! It does not have a lighted button, for my installation that was OK. December 19, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Typical product incompetence Like everything else these days. product not what it claims to be. "Universal," means works with everything. It does not. Not even close. And on another note, when are the garage door people going to realize that not everyone wants their weird, cheap-looking, mismatched, surface-mount wall buttons and create a truly universal single or double gang button system that allows buttons to be flush-mounted? September 20, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Universal Wall Push Button It works. It's too bad that despite its similarity to the Genie product, it doesn't "glow" red in the dark making it easier to find. But, then I don't really ever find myself in the garage with all the lights off. Either I turn the light on before going in there, open the garage door from the inside of the home, or the Genie garage door opener's overhead light remains lit long enough for me to find my way out. I DO warn people against buying the 'Genie' Console for any Genie Garage Door openers except for those ESPECIFICALLY LISTED by the Genie Company, even though it MAY sound like the company is saying it will work on Genie Models. THAT' why I had to buy this 'Universal Wall Push Button', because the Genie Console not only did not work, it 'shorted out' the garage door temporarily, lol. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than expected I ordered this oven because my bricked in cabinet space was slightly narrower than the cut-outs required for other 24 inch ovens. This one fit. I am very satisfied with the appearance, controls and function of this oven. It carried the lowest price of any 24 inch oven, and I got it 10% off that price on HD special sale. If you're looking for a simple, inexpensive oven that works well and installs effortlessly, this is it. January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quick Fix Product was easy to install and quickly fixed my problem. March 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does not work with Chamberlain, not Universal Not universal. Does not work with Chamberlain garage door openers. Called Genie and was advised to call Chamberlain. Bad name for the product. I give it a poor rating because the word Universal is misleading. Do not buy this unless you have verified that it works with your garage door opener. If it does not, do not buy it. February 21, 2015
