How does the bullet attach securely to the carriage? I'm ordering a new bullet b/c I broke mine and trying to figure out if I also need a new carriage. (I was trying to reset the up/down limits after power outage and thought the carriage was locked (lever was up) but apparently it was not. Belt otherwise appears fine, but I haven't disassembled the unit yet to figure this out and not sure if I need to order a new carriage as well.) Thanks.
These intructions will show you how the carriage is replaced and locks in. If you need assistance with troubleshooting, you can also contact Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643.
