Ask a Question
  • I have a CM8600IC/A model and was wondering if the 36521R.S Intellicode receiver board would work with it?

    Yes, the Intellicode® Receiver Board 36521R.S is compatible with Genie model CM8600IC/A.

  • Will a 36521R.S replace a 36520A Receiver Board?

    Yes, the Intellicode® Receiver Board 36521R.S is a compatible replacement for the 36520A.  The 36520A is the raw board part number.

  • I have a model CM7600IC/A. The Receiver Board on my unit does not look like the one in this picture. Is this the correct board? The programming button on mine is broken and will not work.

    Yes, the Intellicode® Receiver Board 36521R.S is compatible with your Genie model CM7600IC/A.  It will typically be smaller and look a little different than the original board, but rest assured it is completely compatible.

  • I have a model IS550/A opener and the number on the intellicode receiver board is 33286B-R0. Will this board work as a replacement? Thanks.

    Yes, the Intellicode® Receiver Board 36521R.S is compatible with Genie model IS550/A.

  • WI’ll this work with a IS55OA operator.Logic board will not code with remotes.I have erased board and light keeps blinking.I have many years experience in door business

    Yes, the Intellicode® Receiver Board 36521R.S is compatible with Genie model IS550/A.  If you have cleared the memory by holding the learn code button until the light goes out, and then reprogramming, by pressing and releasing the learn code button, backing away 5-6 feet and slowly pressing the remote button 4-5 times until the unit runs, then the 36251R.S receiver board failure would be a likely cause.

  • is this part for an IS900A?

    Yes, the Intellicode® Receiver Board 36521R.S is compatible with Genie model IS900A.

  • I have a older model H4000 and our door won't open. The motor ingages but it won't pull up. We do have a flashing red light.

    If the motor is attempting to run but the door is stopping right away, we would recommend checking your door balance. With the door closed, pull the red release cord to disengage the door from the opener. Then lift the door manually (by hand) to 3-4 feet off the ground. Let go of the door, if the door stays in place or moves slightly it is balanced. If the door moves more than 1 foot up or down the door may need balance by a professional door dealer. If the door is balanced you can try increasing your opening/up force knob, but turning it to the right/clockwise by 1/4 quarter turn at a time and retrying operation of the door electrically. The force knob is located under the light bulb cover.

  • I have an Genie model 850. I need to install an electric eye. But the red light will not go off even though the alignment has been checked numerous times. The electric eye is model GSTB-R

    The red light should always be on constantly.  In other words, you should have a solid red light and a solid green light.  If neither are blinking this is normal operation and there is no other action needed.

    Please let us know if this is not the case.

  • Will this work with a Genie model 2560/M

    Yes, the Intellicode® Receiver Board 36521R.S is compatible with model 2560/M.

    This receiver board will have the learn code button on it. So if your learn code button is missing or not working, this would resolve that issue. The installation instructions will come with the new board 36521R.S. You can also view the instructions in the tab below on this page for installation instructions.

  • It appears that my Genie Pro 98 does not have a learning mode... will this board work in that unit and give it learning capability so I can install an exterior keypad and synch?

  • I have an IS900B. None of the garage door remotes work or car remote. They all stopped working at the same time. The manual garage door opener works fine. When trying to reprogram the remotes, the receiver does blink when pressed, but when you press the remote to program, it just goes off. It should stay on till the 2nd press of the remote to confirm. It just won't program. Is the fix a new intellicode board?

    If that does not correct the issue I would recommend replacing the receiver board. Intellicode® Receiver Board 36521R.S
