Question about Genie Garage Door. PowerMax 1500 1 HPc DC Motor Screw Drive Garage

1 Answer

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?

My Genie garage door motor isn't even listed on the company site anymore. I need frequency immunity from the military signal towers in the area built in.

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.

Could the rollers be hitting the screw heads at the joints. Try increasing the distance between the rails to allow for more clearance. If this is an old installation could you have a spring getting weak?

My gear driven garage door opener is making a loud noise


I did garage doors for 20 years and I am going to say it's not the plastic
pinion gear but the 7" three piece metal screw in the center of the rail that goes from the head unit to the wall just above the top of the door that needs lubricated. It spins inside metal to metal and will make a heck of a racket if it is dry. Buy a spray can of lithium grease and disengage the garage door and start the opener and spray the complete screw front wall to the head unit and your done.
Reconnect your garage door and give that a try, I bet that solves your
problems.
Do this every couple of years. :0)

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.

Replace shower door


Hi

You did not mention any additional information about your problem except replacing shower door.However use basic hand tools to complete the job.

Try this following general steps :-
1. Remove the doors by lifting up on one door at a time and then pulling each out. The top of the door has rollers attached to it, and the rollers rest on the inside of the top rail of the frame. Set the doors aside.
2. With your drill, remove the two screws on each end of the top rail, located on the inside of the shower frame. Then lift off the top rail of the shower frame.
3. Use your box knife to cut the caulk on the side and bottom rails of the shower frame. Shower frames are caulked on the outside where they meet with the walls and floor of the shower.
4. Use your drill to remove the screws from the side rails. There will be two screws on each rail, securing it to the shower stall. Then, take the rails out. Remove the screws from the bottom rail and take it out.
5. Use your tape measure to measure the old side rails, top rail and bottom rail. With a pencil, mark the lengths on each new rail. Use your hacksaw to cut each rail. Hold a side rail in the exact location where the old rail was located. With your pencil, mark the screw holes on the shower wall. The new shower frame screw holes may not line up with the old shower frame screw holes. Use your drill and 3/16-inch drill bit to drill new holes if necessary. If the shower walls are ceramic, use the concrete drill bit. If the shower walls are fiberglass, use the multipurpose 3/16-inch drill bit.
6. Insert the 3/16-inch anchors into the holes that you drilled. Put the side rail into position and insert the screws into the holes. Use your drill and Phillips head drill bit to tighten the screws. Place the bottom rail into position and mark the holes. Drill new holes if necessary and install the anchors. Insert only one screw at the end where you installed the first side rail. Lift up the loose end of the bottom rail and slide the second side rail into place. Mark the holes. Remove the side rail and drill the new holes using the 3/16-inch drill bit. Insert the anchors and put the side rail back into place. Insert the screws and tighten with your drill using the Phillips head drill bit.
7. Set the top rail directly onto the side rails. In each end of the top rail, insert the two self-drilling screws until the top is secured to the sides. Insert the tube of clear caulk into the caulking gun. Cut the end off of the tube with your box knife. Caulk the side rails and the bottom rail to the shower walls on the outside of the shower. Re-hang the shower doors by lifting each door and placing the rollers on the inside of the top rail.
Also giving you some links from where you can find a detailed information regarding replacing shower doors.

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

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
