Need an opto luctor for my Genie inetellicode garage opener model # IS550/A. Would the opto luctor 31057R.S work?
Yes, this will work.
I have "Factory Replacement ACSR3" which I believe is CM8600-IC. Door moves an inch or so and returns to original position; when carriage disconnected (ie, no door load), motor runs similar amount of time, and then similarly changes direction as it did with load. (1) Do I need 35226A.S (snap) or 30323A.S (screw)? (2) Do I need to totally pull the motor down off the ceiling, or can I simply replace the opto-luctor board 31057R.S and the optical interrupt wheel while it is on the ceiling. I'm not sure which part is faulty, but would prefer to only do this exercise once so willing to replace both interrupt wheel and optoluctor board.
You can do the replacement while the garage door opener is on the ceiling. You would unplug the garage door opener, then remove the cover to replace the parts. The wheel depends on what year your garage door opener was made. It should have a date code sticker on the powerhead. If your garage door opener was made after 02/2004 you would need the 35226A.S if it was before- then you would need the 30323A.S. If you need help determining which one you can also contact Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643.
Hi--I have model #IS550/A------lately the door will open a few inches and stop----it only happens sometimes----when it does happen it could be from the car remote or the garage switch
This could be caused by a few things. First thing to check is your door balance: To check the balance of your door, disconnect the operator from the door (in the down or closed position) by pulling the emergency release cord. Lift the door to where you can see halfway outside the garage. The door should stay there, slight movement to settle is acceptable. To check for smooth operation, roll the door all the way up and down slowly with your palms to check for smooth, even travel and that there is no binding or sticking. If door is not balanced or operating properly, we would recommend that you call your local professional door installer, Genie, or Overhead Door dealer.
If the garage door is balanced, you can try increasing the open force of your garage door opener. Follow the instruction in the owners manual for the IS550/A.
