Ask a Question
  • what is the voltage at the STB connection? The red LED keeps blinking dit dit dit dah at me, and will not let the door close. Unable to find how to align the beam which has worked for years but not lately.

    If the red LED light on the safe-t-beam is blinking, this would indicate it is working and the blink is a diagnostic blink. Can you tell how many times it is blinking. It should be two, three, or four then pause, then again. You can use this diagnostic chart to help confirm the issue. You can also contact Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643 for further troubleshooting assistance.
