    Hi Sheila –
    We would need more information on your BlueMax garage door opener. If this unit doesn’t have safety beams then the remote will not work for you. You can contact us at 1-800-354-3643 for more information. Thank you!

    Our renters lost the remote for the garage door opener. I need to replace it obviously.

    Will your “Genie Universal Series Garage Door Opener Remote” (Model #GU4TG-R, Part Number 40769R) work on a BLUE MAX GARAGE OPENER. This is a model used by many builders in our area of California and (sadly) the one that’s in our rental.

    Thanks a million for any help you can give me!

    Gratefully yours,
    Sheila Simpson
