    • How to program a new vehicle to operate the overhead door

      If you have nothing else programmed into your HomeLink:

      Press and hold the two outer buttons on the HomeLink until the HomeLink light begins to flash. Release the buttons. Now press and hold the HomeLink button you want to use and your hand-held remote button at the same time. The HomeLink light should start flashing when you press it in, keep both buttons held in until the HomeLink light flashes rapidly. Then release both the remote and HomeLink. Go up to the powerhead on the ceiling and press and square button until you see two blue lights beside it, release the square button, press and release the square button, you should now have a purple flashing light. Go back to your vehicle and press and hold the HomeLink button you paired with your remote, count 1,2, release, do the pressing, counting, and releasing 3-4 times. If you have other things programmed into your HomeLink skip the step "Press and hold the two outer buttons on the HomeLink until the HomeLink light begins to flash".

    • how do you program a remote?

      To program the remotes, you will need to press and hold the square PRG/SET button on the power head until you see a blue light, then release the button. When you release a purple blinking, light comes on. Step away from the unit a few feet, and slowly and firmly press and release the button on your handheld remote that you wish to program 3-4 times. The door should operate. When this happens, your remote is programmed.

    • I have a 16’ wide by 8’ tall garage door does this model come with a longer rail to accommodate this size door?

      Yes, there is an extension kit for Genie model 3022, it is Extension Kit (to 8') for 3 Piece, Chain Drive C-Channel Rails.

    • Our opener has turned off and there is a blue light flashing on the opener. How do I reset it?

      If there is a long blue flashing light, this indicates the lock on the wall console is locked.  Make sure the lock is unlocked and retry the operation.

    • I am looking for a direct replacement for my existing Model # 3024. (IntelliG 1000). Is the rail for the 3022-TKH the same demension? (approx 1 1/4" X 3")

      Yes, the 3022 and the 3024 models have same dimension for the rail and head.

      Yes, the Safe-T-Beams are required to be installed.

      No, the 3022 model uses a different rail than the 1035 model uses.

      No, it will not. We no longer have any models that would work with the same rail as the GCG350L did.

      What is the current model Genie garage door opener that you have installed?

      You can only add up to one extension kit so this model would work on up to an 8-foot high garage door.

    • Can I buy just the motor head assy and use my existing chain drive 1/2hp genie track etc ? I have a double door and want a stronger motor to raise the door easier and faster.

      We do not sell the powerheads by themselves.

    • I have an old PMX70 model. Which should I buy to just pop out/pop in new one

      You will have to remove the old powerhead and rail to replace with the new one for any of the newer garage door openers. The lengths will all be different compared to the older one so your angle iron on the ceiling may/ or may not need to be adjusted. It would be your preference as far as which one to switch to. If you have questions about a specific model, please let us know. The 3022-TKH ChainMax 1000 would be a great option.

      Unfortunately, none of our current units use the same hardware so you would have to replace everything.

    • The door does not open and the leds are red.

      I recommend resetting your travel limits. 

      To program the limits, you will want to press and hold the down arrow button (-) until the long LED comes on blue.  Release, and the LED will begin to flash blue. Press and hold the down arrow button (-) to close the garage door. When the door lightly touches the ground, you will release. Press and release the square button. Both LEDs flash blue and go off.


      > Press and hold the open arrow (+) until the long LED comes on blue. Release. Press and hold the open arrow to open the garage door. When the door is all the way open (do not allow it to hit the powerhead). Release. Press and release the square button.  Both LEDs flash blue and go off.


      > Go to the wall console and press and release the button on the wall to fully close the garage door. Once the door is fully closed, you will want to press and release the button on the wall again to open the door all the way.
