If someone stole my garage door opener can i buy another one and reprogram so the one they stole doesnt work?

Asked by Pk July 7, 2019

Answer

Yes you can. You will need to clear the receiver on your garage door opener, then reprogram in the new remote along with any existing remotes/ keypads that you have. The instructions are different for clearing depending on which model garage door opener you have. You can find these instructions in the owners manual, or we can assist you if you call Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643.

Delicate and not reliable
The first time I had to pull the release cord it broke. Made the repair. Last night I needed to unplug the unit and after I plugged it back in it didn't work. Dead. I'm switching brands.

Hi HandyHomeowner, I am sorry to hear about the issues you are experiencing. Please contact Genie customer support at 1-800-354-3643 for assistance. GenieCompany
Surprisingly unexpected let down
I bought this 5 years ago, installed it and it worked great... until this weekend. The unit randomly decided it will only lift the door a couple of inches each time you push the button and a red light flashes constantly on the central unit. Nothing I have tried fixes it, including checking the sensors, re-setting the power. On top of that I found out that they mislabeled the product, it says 4042 on the model number (which belongs to a 1200 not 1000), and the unit itself says its a 1000, as well as was the box it came in. Seems like they don't know what they're building. Warranty doesn't cover the board replacement for my opener. Very disappointed.

Same issue as others mention. I was doing same electrical work and turned some breakers off. When I turned them back on both units would not work. Everything in the house works fine except the two openers. I got 7 or 8 years out of the openers, so better luck then some of the other posters.

Hi John. We do recommend using a surge protector with any of our garage door openers. We also recommend getting one that plugs directly into the electrical outlet, that does not have the extension cord attached. GenieCompany
Power Surge - Dead Unit
I have two of these openers. One went dead several years ago and I replaced the entire unit. Had a power outage last night and one of them went completely dead. Climbed the ladder and opened up the unit. The fuse was good and power was getting to the circuit board. Just for the heck of it I ohmed out the motor windings and it looked good. Called Genie this morning and ordered a new PCB for $140. The customer service rep was friendly and helpful. It appears my other opener is the never version (white buttons vs the older black on this one). They use a revised PCB now so hopefully they fixed this vulnerability.

same as others. went dead after power surge
i think genie is not a reputable company if it doesnt advise plugging the powerhead into a surge protector. after our power went out, one side of garage unit went dead. the outlet was good and the lightbulb out let ok. but the circuit board mustve been burned. this happens allot. the service call lady was great and gave great info but yall should train them to advise pluggin it into a power surge first. this is pretty new. but she said the warranty went out in 2017. the year i bought the house. seems fishy.

Genie products are junk. Instruction manuals lack the necessary details and just when you think you've figured out the instructions, good luck getting the results you expect. I've been trying to change the pin on the keypad with no luck.

Do yourself a favor if you buy this opener bring it home and throw it directly into the trash and go get another brand. After 3 years I’m on my 5th control board, at $100+ each I’m not throwing another penny into this heap of garbage sorry excuse of a garage door opener. The customer service is fair if you can ever get through to them, if calling on your cell phone make certain your battery is fully charged because you will be on hold for an eternity. I will never again buy another Genie product, not even so much as the wire for the opener button. If it says Genie on it run away as fast and as far as you can.

After a few years the motor just gave out and will not open the garage door. For what I paid for it I did expect for it to last longer then it did. So disgusted with the product.
