QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Can I order parts over the 800 # !

    Yes, you can order parts by calling the 800-354-3643.  Please be aware some of the prices may vary over the phone from website prices.

    You can also order through our online website.

  • There is a wire with 3 screws that appear in the photos near the circuit board. What is this wire used for ? Please explain. Thanks.

    These screws included in the Circuit Board 38874R4.S are used for installing the circuit board.  You may be able to reuse the original screws, but these are provided in case the original screws are lost or damaged.

  • One of my Overhead Door Phantom garage door openers has a broken "learn" button. I am not ready to replace the unit(s) just yet though they are 15 years old. do I need to replace the board?

    The circuit board would need to be replaced if you cannot push the learn button, or if everything else is working fine, you could add the universal conversion kit. 

  • Hi, I have a model 4042 but the circuit board has a part number 36681R on it. That is a different part number than what your website says I need. Is the 38874R4.S the replacement for the 36681R? My wall unit is black with white buttons but the bottom 2 buttons are bigger than what is pictured in the bundle. Thank you, Matt

    The 4042 correct circuit board replacement is 38874R4.S. The wall console changed looks slightly, but if you have one with white buttons, you would not need to replace it.

  • I have intelliG 1200 that is now not working due to mouse pee and short in bulb wiring mouse eat the wires fuse blown. the board number is 38001R model 4024 what board can you recomend? Circuit Board / Series II Wall Console Bundle or Circuit Board 38874R4.S

    If you have the Series II wall console already (it should have white buttons and not black), then you would just need the circuit board. If you have a Series III wall console (it would have black buttons) you will want to get the bundle because you would need to replace the wall console.
