SOURCE: Genie Directlift garage door opener, wall control problem.

Sounds like a skinned wire on your front or rear limit switches is touching metal. Go over your low voltage wiring and test again.

SOURCE: garage door will not stay closed. It raises

On the side of the motor unit you will find the 'down limit' control. Turn this in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Some tweaking will probably be necessary.

SOURCE: Genie garage door will not close if safety photo eye sees sunlite

Most photo electric eyes have sensitivity settings. A small dial or screw that can be adjusted.
If there is none, then another trick would be to recess back further from the actual opening, and put is on the wall as far as possible.
Finally, you could add a tube to act as a sunshield. They probably have one that can be special ordered for it.
And it even that does not work, consider taping a sheet of polarized film over it, like a single sunglass lense.

Garage door closes but doesn't stay closed


if nothing is obstructing the door then there are 2 possibilities:
a) your limit switch for closing is too low and the closer detects the motor stall as the floor is reached, then opens in case it's a kid under the door.
b) your tracks and garage door are mis-aligned, causing excessive force to trigger the reversal. Make sure the door closes easily by hand.

Genie screw opener is louder when opening or closing ?


If its louder when opening check and see if your door is balanced properly. disengage opener raise door about half way it should stay there. another way is to raise the door all the way up with the opener then check and see if your cables are tight. if it balances right try adding a little genie grease to the screw while its running.

Why won't my Genie garage door opener close without going back up.


So it seems the Main garage door unit on the ceiling is ok. The problem is with hand held unit. Usually the circuitry is ok. Try changing the battery. It has helped me. Also make sure the sensor on ceiling unit is not blocked ad is free of cobwebs.

The sensor light are different colors


The sensors are seeing something directly in line with the beam between the 2 sensors, or your sensors are not aligned so they point directly at each other.
