Questions & Answers


Can I use this bulb with Desk Lamp? Or it is for garage openers only?

Asked by TP December 12, 2020

Hi TP- this would depend on the desk lamp specifications. This bulb could be used anywhere a standard LED bulb can, it does not have to be in a garage door opener only.

Can these bulbs be used in my outside light fixtures?

Asked by Rowbeen October 9, 2020

Yes, they can.

The description says the bulb has a Product Height of 4.75 in, and Product Width of 6.25 in. Is ...

Asked by Improv20 July 7, 2020

That is incorrect. It is a standard size light bulb.

would these cause any EMF or RF interference inside an MRI scanner>

Asked by Dave June 3, 2020

Each light bulb is 800 lumens- equivalent to 60 Watts.

Does not fully turn off, dims to low glow but not off. Anyone know why? I tried unplugging my opener.

Asked by CC December 8, 2019

I would get this checked out by a licensed electrician, garage door service company. It could be that the relays in the opener are not fully turning off and "leaking voltage". While a standard incandescent you wouldn't notice it, the LED bulb requires a much lower operating voltage and its enough to turn on the bulb. It's a danger because there's voltage at the light socket when there shouldn't be any and it's also a waste of electricity.

Can these bulbs be used in a refrigerator? They came up in my search for led appliance bulbs.

Asked by Tommyboy June 23, 2019

These are full size bulbs and probably won’t fit a refrigerator. You want an appliance bulb that is smaller and has a smaller base. They are available as LED.

my remotes only work twenty feet from door. any ideas

Asked by Corky March 26, 2019

Your opener is susceptible to the RFI generated by the bulb. Genie has added extra filtering to prevent this but your opener is still being affected. You can try other LED bulbs but may still experience this issue. I would suggest trying a compact fluorescent rated for garage (extreme temps from a bulb's perspective) or switch back to standard incandescent. If allowed in your area you may be able to use a socket to plug adapter and mount a LED light farther away from the opener.

Are these truly interference free, or just an marketing gimmick to charge more for LED bulbs?

Asked by happydad November 28, 2018

Very true. I replaced my standard led bulbs with these and gained about another 100 ft

In the Product Overview it says the color is Bright White, but in the Specifications it lists the...

Asked by Questionable October 9, 2018

I bought these Genie bulbs right after Home Depot started caring them in 2015. I bought these to replace older LEDs which had limited the activation distance for the remote opener. The Genie bulbs restored the activation distance to what it had been with incandescent bulbs. The color of the bulbs is 3000K - or cool white.

Bought three bulbs (sold singly) and two have failed in a new Genie garage door opener!
After installing a Genie garage door opener, I added two of these bulbs with their "ultimate performance". 12 months later one failed, the second failed 6 months later. If I had left these on for those full 18 months, I still would not have reached the claimed bulb life of 25,000 hours. Overpriced, unreliable garbage.

Nice white light
Great addition to a 20 year old Genie garage door opener. And a lot of brightness to our garage. I like the fact it won’t interfere with the remote controls. Much whiter light than the old bulbs that were in there.

Worked for my late 1990's and mid 2000's openers. The cheaper Feit bulbs did not. You see the frequency that the transmitter operates at was changed back in the early 2000. The FCC being nice people simply told all the manufacturers the new rules and that they had to change frequency. This is better then telling every homeowner in the U.S. that they now have to buy new garage door openers. Frequency of operation is key to RFI. An LED bulb is an unintentional radiator. Turning AC into DC requires the use of electronic components. While the is a simple process the bulb manufacturer goes a step further and uses what's called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). They are, in simple terms, turning the bulb on and off at 10,000 times a second or so. Fast enough for the human eye not to notice with the added bonus of increased efficiency and longer bulb life. The downside is this PWM creates Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). This RFI is what confuses your garage door opener and makes it not work. Genie has added additional filtering inside their bulb to keep the RFI from "getting out". Thus making a bulb that works. Those extra components cost engineering time and money and that's why the bulb costs more. Ignore the yellow color on the one opener, the plastic is yellowed from age and I didn't want the take the cover off because it's getting brittle. We all know what a light bulbs looks like, I hope.

Bought these bulbs because the frequency is compatible with the garage door opener. They are also bright which is needed in a garage.
