Questions & Answers


What are the dimensions of the power head?

Asked by exaramco June 2, 2021

I am not sure, however the screw drive on the one I purchased was faulty from the beginning, so I returned it and got a belt drive. Myself and another person familiar with installing them said I did the right thing by not getting a screw drive. It seems in some cases, they are much noisier than a belt drive.

Can a keypad operator be orogrammed for this unit? Can this unit be programmed to operate from car mounted door buttons?

Asked by Chuck May 18, 2021

I have not tried a remote keypad for the outside. since the wall switch only has 2 wires and controls the light and open/close there will have to be some interface between keypad and the opener to properly work.

can I get screw drive with battery

Asked by MOBY April 15, 2021

The Genie website specifically states that a battery backup is NOT available for this model. Also, this model cannot be sold in California where battery backups are mandated by State Law.

How high will this opener lift a door without the extension. Not the "manufacturer recommendation...

Asked by CuriousGentleman January 23, 2021

If you have an overhead standard sized garage door, it will rely on how your door track is mounted. My garage door opening is exactly 7 feet, but the track lifts the door well above that. Whatever fits under the opening will easily clear the door in it's open position. While the door is completely open, it looks to be at least two inches above the opening. I didn't have to adjust the "travel" to open that far, but it does allow my '99 Ram 2500 to easily fit under it.

Is rail length really 10.5 feet? I currently have a Genie Excelerator ISD990 and the rail measur...

Asked by CTM December 22, 2020

When I measured it, it's only 9.5 ft for the rails alone. If you add the power head, it's 10.5 ft.

Can you use this opener to power a dumbwaiter?

Asked by Alboy November 25, 2020

Hi Alboy, No this would not be recommended to use on any application that it is not intended for. The Genie Powerlift is to operate a garage door opener.

Is Screw Drive easily bent when the door is jammed ? More durable than chain ?

Asked by HeneryTrump November 20, 2020

Our screw drive openers are installed on both of our doors, and each door has jammed, neither opener has bent. In fact, we put a reinforcement "angle bracket" on the top of the door panel of both doors, which works great.

Is there anything else that i jeed to buy thats not included?

Asked by Nick November 15, 2020

Hi Nick... For a standard door you may need brackets to mount the opener depending upon the height of your garage ceiling. If there is an existing opener you are replacing that is already working you should need nothing other than what is in the box. Hope that helps.

Balance your door first?
Well I installed this in November 2020. It worked ok for a few days then started not going up or down. But usually it would work after a few tries. My son who installed it says take it back, but I wanted to work with it so I greased the wheels and hinges to make it smooth. It worked again for awhile then started stopping again. I tolerated it for a bit. Now it is April and it is totally unreliable. Trying to get support from the is painful, no chat working sent email no response then finally waited 40 min on the phone to speak to a young lady. The sweet little young lady says that the flashing red light means my door is out of balance and that every door needs to be balanced before you can install the opener. The previous opener was there for 20 years and the only reason I bought a new one is because i had no clickers and it would cost $100 for clickers so I felt after 20 years for $200 I should put in a new opener. THe previous one never failed, never needed service. Now to make this piece of crap work I need to call my garage door people and pay $200 for a service call and they will ask me why I was so stupid to buy this poor product. My recommendation, dont buy this.

Response from Genie Product ExpertApr 16, 2021
Thank you for your feedback. A garage door is the largest moving object in the home. Proper installation, operation, maintenance, and testing of the garage door and automatic opener are necessary to provide safe, trouble-free operation. An improperly adjusted garage door could lead to serious injury. To test the garage door for proper operation and balance you can:
• Open and close the door manually using handles or suitable gripping points.
• The door should move freely and without difficulty.
• The door should balance and stay partially open 3–4 feet above the floor.
If you detect any signs of improper operation, we would recommend contacting a trained door systems technician for assistance.
If your garage door is balanced and you are still having trouble with your garage door opener, please contact us. GenieCompany

I've had it about a week or so, and it has exceeded my expectations! The installer was fast and efficient, pointed out how poorly the prior one was installed by my home-warranty company and explained why it wasn't working, and VERY politely explained that I had been ripped-off. This garage door opener is PERFECT for my needs; I can start it opening from half a block away, and smoothly just drive right in without having to stop in the driveway to wait for it to finish bringing the door up like the prior "replacement" for my broken opener. It's quiet, it's SMOOTH not jerky when opening the garage door, and I wish I'd just spent the VERY REASONABLE amount of money for it and the installation without having had to go through what I did before with the cheap chain-drive hunk of garbage opener that the installer was kind enough to haul away for me. I honestly can't find a single thing to DIS like about it, other than I wish the light would come on when I walk into the garage like my ORIGINAL Genie screw-drive opener that broke down of simple old age. This particular model doesn't have that feature however it has better range and power and smoothness and several other features like a "vacation lock" that will keep the garage door opener from being "hacked" by a burglar should I need to leave home for an extended period of time. The thing I like the MOST about it, I've already said: I can be half a block away, touch the opener remote, and the door is already open by the time I hit the driveway, I can just smoothly ride on into the garage and not have to wait. I am a deaf man, but my WIFE hears fine and when I go to work late at night once in a while, she tells me that the garage door opening NEVER wakes her, it's so quiet compared to the others we've had in it's place. It was a GOOD BUY, a GREAT deal expense-wise, and I'm VERY glad to have it.

Fairly easy to install and operates well for a 1/2 hp opener. I have a 10' door and ordered this one because it was advertised as having a 10 1/2' rail. It only has an 8 1/2' rail.... extensions only come in 1', you can only use one and they seem a little spendy, so I installed it as is since I rarely need to raise the door all the way. You can raise the door all the way if you disconnect door bracket from the traveller (ladder required) and make sure that the motor assembly is mounted just above the door height. I have only had this installed for a month and it works well, so far.

I purchased the professional installation for the garage door opener. However, nobody contacted me to schedule the installation, and the opener is sitting in my garage. I called the customer service two times, but the person who is in charge of scheduling never responded. Then, I went to the store to find out a way to schedule the installation, but it was not possible to schedule the installation. We could not even get the refund for the installation fee. I’ll never buy this at Home Depot.
