Question about Genie Pro Screw Drive Garage Door Opener with Rail Assembly for 7 Door - 1/2 HP - CM8600XL-7

1 Answer

My Genie CM8600 garage door opener runs, but prematurely goes back up. No obstructions, settings adjusted on power head-- maxed out. It seems like it reacts to resistance. Is the motor just old? I r

I've adjusted the sensitivity for the closing pressure all the way up so that it has no reason to reverse. Everything is lubed and moves fine when door is disconnected. The power head does not reverse when the door is not connected.

Garage door opener not working


Sensor must show steady light to close circuit and let opener work. If aligned, then there is a loose or broken wire. Try reaiming first to get steady light. Then check all wires . Another way to test and prove that is the issue is if u hold down the wired button at ur back door and the opener closes, then it is sensor issue. Good luck.

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.

How to open genie 1/2 hp garage opener for light bulb


Set a step ladder under the power head of the garage door opener so you can reach the power cord and the lens cover safely.
Climb the ladder and pull the power cord from the outlet in the ceiling. Press the two lens tabs in to disengage the lens from the power head. The lens tabs are below the opener rail on the upper corners of the lens. Pull the lens cover straight off of the power head.
Unscrew the light bulb from the light socket. Use a new 60 watt bulb to replace the defective bulb. Do not use a short neck bulb. Screw the new bulb into the light socket just as you would a regular lamp socket.
Slide the lens cover back over the front of the power head. Push the lens cover in until the locking tabs engage the top corners of the lens cover.
Plug the Genie garage door opener power cord back into the ceiling electrical outlet.

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.

I just installed a Sears Craftsman 1/2 HP Garage Door opener. As I was doing the adjustment to keep the door closed, it closed too tight. I disengaged and confirmed the door arm was set wrong so I fixed...


Use the emergency release handle to release the door. Run the opener to the open position until it stops. Close the door until it stops. Now re engage the the door.

I want to program my Genie ecellerator isd 1000 so that I can use my Homelink system in my car and my wife can continue to use her Genie remote that came with the opener. How can i do this? Thanks


Inside the car press the 2 outer buttons on the homelink until the led light by it goes out or flashes rapidly. This erases all old/factory codes. Hold the remote 1" from the button you want to program and press the button on the remote and the homelink button until it flashes rapidly. Then press the learn button on the motor head and then press the button on the homelink you pressed before 4 times and this should code in. Thanks BB
