SOURCE: Can't remove the top to get to the motor

2 of the 4 fasteners on my Genie were TORX head screws with the little round 'blocking post' in the opening.
I acquired a set of TORX drivers which have a hollow center to accomodate these particular fasteners. (Maybe the tools came from Harbour Freight)
The REAL problem is that a new motor seems to cost 2 or 3 times the price of a new wet/dry vac.
Good luck

Learn button on genie pro max garage opener is not working . How can I programm new remote?


if the learn button is truly bad you have two options either replace the circuit board or buy an external receiver. It was me a would replace the opener with a Chamberlain/Craftsman or Liftmaster belt drive opener. The new genies aren't worth a damn. I've replaced about a dozen that were a year or less old because of defects this year.

How do I program a "clicker" brand remote for a genie pro 83 garage door opener?


generally you find the program button on the motor housing, press it once and it should start blinking, then press the remote button, and then press the remote button again and see if it works.

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.

Electric motor hums but does not open or close garage door


If it just hums and not actually run. Then the trolley is jammed against one of the stop bolts.

Own late model 12hp Genie screw drive garage door opener and want to know where to locate the Learn Code Button.


It will be on the outer surface of the motor head, or under the light cover. It will be the only one you can press. Some older units have dip switches which look like a row of toggle switches. If so there will be no learn button. Thanks BB

This has happened to me a couple of times. You will need to return the product as defective and get a new one. This is what genie has told me to do. The problem is that the screw pattern is off just a little and the trolley locks up in a bind as it comes across the piece. Thanks BB
