Question about Home Security

Genie Powermax 1200 installed but only move approx 6 inches at a time.

I bought a genie powermax 1200 3/4 hp from lowes and installed it. The installation seemed to have been ok. During the programming phase trying to set the down/up limits there seemed to be a problem. The door would only move approx 6 inches at a time instead of moving freely down/up while holding the buttons down. Here is what I have trouble shot so far: 1) the sensors are installed correctly, one green, one red, if you break the beam the red flashes. 2) released the garage door manually and the door moves freely (this also worked fine with the previous opener which was 1/2 hp) 3) tried moving the carriage without the garage door attached and the carriage stil only moves approx 6 inches at a time. 4) checked the rail, and it is level with the garage floor.

SOURCE: The doo seems to be stuck down...like the upper

On the side of the motor unit you will find the 'down limit' adjustment. Turn this in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. It may help if you remove the cover and you can see the limit adjustment assembly. It will help you understand the problem.

SOURCE: I have a genie pro max PMX 300 IC/A garage door opener and bought a Genie 3-button remote (model G3T-R) and I can't get it programmed. I push the button on the back of the opener, push the button

Take the opener apart and see if there are about 4 numbers that can be set. If you have an older remote take it apart and match the numbers, then program it.

Can I use tje existing screw/rail of the 1/2HP Genie CM86001C and replace the old head with the new PowerMax 1500 head or does the new PowerMax 1500 require a new screw/rail?


No rail wont fit quite right. I would consider a liftmaster/craftsman/chaimberlain with yellow antenna wire. The liftmaster models are 8355 or 8550. Not sure how those model #'s translate to the craftsmans and chaimberlains. These units use 3 frequencies which are chosen automatically by opener radio. This gives you the best option to avoid interference. Genie typalically uses 2, but their fixed, so its a crapshoot to avoid interference. Do not confuse these frequencies with the rolling code feature which is a static frequency with only the "channels" changing.

Where can I find a filter for genie sv300q?


I have the Genie 3000 which is a 20 gal. wet/dry vac with a 3.0 HP motor. I had bought at Home Depot some 20+ years ago. I bought a replacement filter at HD made by someone other than Genie and claiming to fit my model...but it did not fit...too loose to stay in place. I did track down some hypo filters that might fit...but at $28+ for the filter I decided it was time to get a new model with better and cheaper and available filters. I bought a Ridgid WD1451 14 gal with 6.0 HP. It is so much nicer and quieter. HD regularly carries the WD1450 for $99 or so. The WD1451 is the same model but also had the car vac hose and attachments (a $40 set) included for free. That was a limited offer probably no longer available. Get you a new one and enjoy it...I did...and I still have the Genie...but I think I'll toss it because it is too big, too loud, and I love this new Ridgid.

How do you replace the battery in the genie garage door remote, its the small one


Never could get mine to work...turns out this model only works with Genie garage door openers manufactured in certain years, and mine wasn't one of those years. Bought a GIT model from a Genie garage door installer, and no more problems!

Powermax water pump shuts off after 5 min or more


Either the coil/HEI module is bad or your on/off switch(kill switch) is bad. Check those first.

I have an acer aspire 3690. got the swp2009 demo virus. ran spyware doctor anti virus. comp will not load past the acer aspire screen. i have the 6 recovery discs that were made with the original purchase....


if the recovery discs wont work you may want to low level format (powermax) and try a fresh install. only downside is u will need a copy of windows with the serial key and u will lose all your data - http://digilander.libero.it/YorkOne/powermax/ - download and burn to cd >>> powermax-4.09.iso
