    I assume you have tried the remote AND the wall switch and none work, right?

  • alexocuello_ Apr 29, 2010

    Have you checked the electrical connections to the unit?

    Has anyone made changes to door opener set up since it was working?

    Have you had a power failure?

    Is the voltage in your house normal (110-120 V)?

With a 2 week old unit, it sounds like you may have a bad motor, but it should be under warranty, call your dealer/ installer

Try cleaning the door tracks and rollers as if they are sticking the motor will reverse as a safety function. Use WD40 and wipe clean then apply some spray grease.

The eyes should have a light on them. Either red or green. If they are green then the eyes are ok. If there is no light on either eye, then this is the problem. If the eyes are okay, then I would check the motor. Make sure that it is getting power. Another thing that you can try is to unlock the door from the opener and see if the opener will move the chain by itself. The door could be jammed.

Sounds like a problem with a limit switch or something getting in the way of the electric eye that interrupts for safety reasons. Clean the electric eye transmitter and sensor of debris and cobwebs and make sure the wires are attached properly. Check the operation of the lifting media track or chain. Has it been lubricated recently? If possible, clean the switch in the transmitter in the car, it may be shorting out.

USE GENIE WET DRY VAC WITH OR WITHOUT PAPER LINER?


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} The PB15 uses a fairly large pleaded paper filter for dry use, but it is an odd ball, as most of these type filters are held in place bay some sort of plate, and plastic nut. The PB15 uses a filter that has a bottom, and is pressed into place. For wet use, I would see if you can use the foam filter for one of the Craftsman small W/D vacs, like the old 2 gallon model, held in place with a rubber band, which is slipped over the cage with the float ball. It needs to be sealed across the bottom. That should cut down on spray making its way to the motor. The PB15 does have one good feature as the vacuum inlet has an elbow which keeps the water from being sucked straight into the motor intake, so the foam filter should do the job pretty well. I’d also look at the bag and rubber band that is used on some of the smaller Craftsman vacs, which sounds like what has been done on yours already. They are easy to find.

Because Genie no longer makes any vacuums or blowers, and did not keep a parts inventory to support owners of their products (a reason not to buy one of their garage door openers) it might be best in the long run to ‘garage sale’ the Genie, and buy a new vac from a brand that will be around for awhile. I have two Craftsmen, and one Ridgid, besides the PB15, which is going in the nest garage sale, for the above reason.

As far as your blower to vacuum problem -- The hose is moved from the blower outlet, which is the top black piece with the handle and switch, to the hole in the canister for vacuum. The intent of the PB15 was to use the top piece as a hand held electric leaf blower, or when attached to the yellow canister as a vacuum, when you use the hose attached to the canister.
