Ask a Question
  • Does IntelliG Pro Series Model 3024 have a capacitor?

    No, the Genie model 3024 does not have a capacitor.  If you provide the symptoms that your unit is having we would be happy to assist with your issue.

  • IMG garage door was going up and I heard a crack and the door was jammed open to the motor and starting to smoke. It still works but sometimes stops half way up when opening. The capacitator has oil on it. Is the capacitator bad?

    Yes, typically a pop and smoking is indicative of a bad capacitor.  Sometimes the capacitor will reseal itself which can cause it to continue to work, but it should be replaced.

  • I have the CM8600IC/A … will this capacitor work ?

    Yes, the Capacitor, 70MFD - 19988A.S is compatible with Genie model CM8600IC/A.

  • Is this compatible with the CM 7500-S?

    Yes, the Capacitor, 70MFD - 19988A.S is compatible with Genie model CM7500-S.

  • What are the capacitor tolerances? 70 mfd +/-??

    The capacitor has a tolerance of +/- 5-10%.

  • How long should the garage door opener be disconnected from power before replacing the capacitor?

    We recommend waiting a minimum of 30 minutes prior to attempting replacement of the capacitor.

  • I have a H4000A and the capacitor that went bad was 19988A and it was 4.5 inches long. I replaced the capacitor with another 19988A that was 3.25 inches long and it blew after only a few uses. So now I am confused on what capacitor to use. I’d like to replace it with one that is the same size.

    The size of the capacitor has changed.  Typically when the capacitor blows multiple times the motor would be experiencing friction issues causing the capacitor failure.  In this case we would recommend the replacement of the unit.

  • I have the IS550-A and the spring is good and there are no restrictions to the door or screw drive. It is cold here but the door will only travel a few inches and stops. It does this either up or down. The door opens and closes by hand easily. Do yo think a new motor is in order vice a capacitor?

    If the units starts and then stops, this would not be a capacitor issue.  Could be a motor, but you would want to make sure to try and turn up your open and close forces to see if the problem is resolved.  If not the complete unit would need replaced as we no longer have motors for this unit.

    Thank you.
