Question about Genie Garage Door. SilentMax 1000 3/4 HP Comparable Belt Drive Garage

Open Question

My genie garage opener opens the door but sometimes after about 1 second, it starts drifting down again.

If I hit the button while it's drifting down, it starts a mechanically driven descent. Then if I push the button again, it goes back up. Sometimes it works just fine, but yesterday it took about 8 tries to get it to stay open

SOURCE: Garage door goes up 10" and goes down when button

I had hand ropes to pull door manually at the sides of the door that crossed the path of the safety sensors and caused this. I also had stiction in the door where the sections paint would stick preventing the sections to hinge. Try releasing the thing and moving door manually to insure smooth operation. Also the force sensor may be tripping. To sense this "help" raise the door. Also see if the frame and the pointing of the sensors might distort as door is raised.

SOURCE: Genie 912 opens garage door but will not close it.

Ate these the programble remotes or the original?

Testimonial: "They do have the little switches. I purchased the house about 16 months ago and they came with it so I don't know how old they are. I find it odd that all of the sudden both will not close the garage. If I use the switch on the wall it is fine."

GT3-R -can


This is a dual frequency transmitter. (315/390) You need to select one button to program the TYPE 1 frequency of 390 MHz. Here's how:

Backwards compatable programming instructions for GT3-R dual-band remote: This is a 3 button remote, which can be used to operate up to 3 garage doors using IntelliCode radio controls. This remote is defaulted to operate the new IntelliCode 2 Genie garage door openers, but you can also program individual buttons to operate other IntelliCode 1 (pre 2011) models of Genie garage door openers made from 1998 to present. To change a button to operate a pre 2011 IntelliCode opener, the default IntelliCode 2 setting must be changed to IntelliCode 1. An LED light on the remote displays which mode the remote button is in: Red = IntelliCode 1 / Green = IntelliCode 2 To set one of the 3 buttons to be IntelliCode 1 (red), follow the instructions below:
  1. Select a button on the remote that has not been programmed.
  2. Press and hold that button for 10 seconds. Both Red and Green LEDs come on and stay on.
  3. Press the same button twice to toggle IntelliCode selection from IntelliCode 2 to IntelliCode 1.
  4. Press the same button again to confirm toggle. the LED should be Red. The IntelliCode selection for this button is set to IntelliCode 1.
You are now ready to program the remote to your garage door. Follow accompanying instructions for "Programming to IntelliCode 1 Genie garage door opener," or see below instructions: Programming Instructions: Gently press the Receiver Learn Code button on the power head receiver of your Genie garage door opener (motor head on ceiling in garage). This small, black, unmarked button is located behind the light lens at the motor head and is nearest the floppy 6 inch antenna wire that protrudes from the motor head. When pressed, a radio signal indicator light will start blinking red for 30 seconds. After pressing the Learn Code Button, press your transmitter button twice for your system to grab the frequency and code it in. (Keep the transmitter you're tuning at least 2 feet away from the power head while tuning.) Press the transmitter button once more to test the system and start your door moving.

Genie Compact 3-Button Remote control will only open 1 door/not 2


On some of the remotes you will find a toggle switch to change frequencies, this might help. Note all new openers are operating on a different frequency than slightly older ones due to military interference. Even though both might be intellicode they might not work together on the same remote. Sometimes some openers are harder to program than others. So lets try to program the harder one. You need to find and press the learn button on the motor head. Then press the button on the remote once. The led light by the learn button should not flash. If so try it over. The light should either stay lit or go out after the first press. If it does press it again and then a third time. If it ever flashes during the program process try again. The third or fourth time the motor should operate. If not you either have a bad remote or more than likely a bed logic board. Thanks BB

My Homelink wireless remote is stuck on fast flashing red light. I can't seem to clear my remote to program any of the buttons to my garage door opener. This is the second one I purchased, I had no...


Try this.

HOMELINK PROGRAMMING




  1. Clear out anything previously programmed into the in-car system from the factory by holding down on the 2-outside buttons simultaneously, until the in-car LED starts flashing rapidly. This may take up to a minute (in most cases, the key should be on auxilary, and/or the car door must be shut).
  2. Decide which button you want to make to be your in-car garage door transmitter. Hold your transmitter up near the selected button, pressing both the garage door remote and the selected in-car transmitter button simultaneously. Hold down on the buttons until the in-car, LED light flashes rapidly. This sets the in-car remote transmitter to be your garage door openers make transmitter, but you are not done. You now need to make this in-car transmitter your personal transmitter.
3. Go to the Learn Button on your garage door opener. The button is usually next to the area where the floppy antenna is connected to the motor head. With Genie it is most often behind the light lens, and an indicator light flashes red when pressed. With Sears or Liftmaster (Chamberlain) it is near, or part of, the terminal screw board, and is a red, green or purple square button with a green, amber or purple indicator light. Press this learn button momentarily. The indicator light will turn on and blink if Genie or otherwise stay lit. For Genie systems, go back to the in-car transmitter button you programmed and press this button 3 or 4 times, or until the door starts moving. This should set your in-car transmitter to your garage door opener. For Liftmaster, Sears, or Linear Megacode press and hold the in-car button you programmed until the garage opener light flashes. Your in-car is now programmed to operate your door.

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.

Battery does not last


Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn’t work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.

If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.

Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.

The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.
Or a remote in someone’s purse that gets the button pushed by other stuff in the purse.

The test is to disconnect the push button wires at the power unit. If the self operation / interference stops you have located the problem. If you reconnect the wires and disconnect the wire at the wall button this will tell you if the problem is the wire or the button.

Programming the garage door opener


Homelink Garage Door Opener Programming Procedure:

The procedure described below was successfully applied to a 2005 Jaguar S-Type.

To begin with, several attempts were made using the programming instructions contained in my Jaguars owners manual. Though the procedure described in the owners manual was straight-forward and understandable, I was unsuccessful in getting the vehicles remote to make my garage door opener function. The particular garage door openers I have are both made by Genie. Both openers utilize the Rolling Code feature.

To begin with, be sure to clear previous codes on your Jaguars garage door opener by first turning (rotating) the ignition key to the I position (first notch). Next, simultaneously hold button 1 (left most button) and button 3 (right most button) down until the middle buttons red light changes from continuous on to a rapid flash. This process takes approximately 20-25 seconds. What follows is a two part process. In the first part, get your Genie portable remote and hold it near (approximately 3 inches away from) your Jaguars garage door opener console buttons. Choose which button on your Jaguars remote you wish to dedicate to your Genie door opener and simultaneously press and hold your Genie opener button and your Jaguars opener button. The red light on your Jaguars center button (button #2) will light up and within 1-2 seconds will begin to flash rapidly. You have just completed part 1 of the two part process.

Part two: Now it is time to utilize the Learn function on your Genie garage door opener. Press the Learn button on your Genie garage door opener. The red LED adjacent to the Learn button will begin to flash. You now have 30 seconds in which to program your Jaguars opener button. Using the same button you just used in the part 1 procedure, press and hold the same button for several seconds. As before, your Jaguars red light in the middle button will light up and within 1-2 seconds, it will flash rapidly. Release the button you are programming. Now, here is the key piece of information! Once again, press and hold that same button. Once again, the center buttons red light will flash rapidly. Release your newly programmed button. This procedure proved successful in my application. Here is what has just happened. The first time you pressed your Jaguars remote button tells the Genie opener that it exists and that it is a viable candidate for making your life easier (opening the damn door). The second time you press your Jaguars remote button confirms to the Genies rolling code that your Jaguars signal is legitimate and is to be trusted from then on.
