Ask a Question
  • Is there a replacement carriage for model pcg 700ml

    Sorry, the carriage for Genie model PCG700ML is no longer available.

  • I have a genie model 2033. Do you have a Belt/ Chain Drive Carriage Assembly that can fit this model?

    Yes, the carriage for the model 2033 is the Belt/ Chain Drive Carriage Assembly- 38893R.S

  • I have the genie gcg350ml are you saying there no othet carriage that will replace the carriage

    Unfortunately, the carriage for the GCG350ML is no longer available and there is no replacement.

  • Please provide installation instructions for this part 38893 R.S

    You can view the instructions for replacing the 38893R.S here.

  • Does Genie or any other company make a replacement carriage assembly for the GCG350L??

    We no longer have the carriage assembly for the GCG350L model garage door opener.

  • Will this fit on a 7155‑tkv?

    Yes, it will!

  • I have the 7155, which I bought from Costco. During programming of the down limit, I ran into an issue and had to pull the the release cord. The part where the cord attaches to the carriage will not go back into the locked position. Is there a trick to get it to lock again? If I have to order a new one, will the carriage for the 7055 work?

    You should not have to order a new one. If you lock it back in with the pull cord, manually pull your garage door open or close and it will hit that spot and should lock back into place. For assistance you can also call 1-800-354-3643.

  • Is there a part that is inside the black tube of the carriage? my customer has the carriage but the tube is hollow so there is nothing for the belt to lock onto

    The inside of the carriage where it is hollow is where the turnbuckle slides into. The turnbuckle is attached to the chain/belt. Once it is inside the tube you can lock it in.

  • This product is compatible with model 3053 Aladdin Connect?

    This is compatible with the 3053 model garage door opener.

  • is this carriage compatible with the Home Depot-bought Genie QuietLift 750 3/4 HP model?

    Yes, it is!

  • My daughter pulled the cord for manual release on garage door and now we cannot get it to click back to lock it in place so it will be automatic again. Watched several how-to videos and I believe something broke. Can this be fixed/replaced?

    Please contact Genie customer service at 1.800.354.3643.

  • Does this part work for Model 7055D?

    Yes, the Belt/ Chain Drive Carriage Assembly- 38893R.S is the correct carriage for your Genie model 7055D garage door opener.
