Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
I own a Genie Excelerator opener. the control board is now bad. Can I just replace the head, what should I do. I have had this for a very long time and it still works great, it is screw drive. I my self wanted to load a new opener button, I think I pressed to hard, I was told by a friend who looked at it he said it is bent. so now I do not have the new button. Thank You Dennis Atkins
You can replace the circuit board in the Genie Excelerator. It sounds like you are referring to the older Excelerator series. You can check the parts out for those here (click here). If you are looking for a new remote, you can add any of our current Genie garage door opener remotes, they are all Intellicode models. If you are trying to replace the whole unit, you can do that as well, but the old rail is not going to work with the new powerhead, so you will need to install the new rail that comes with it.
I have a Powermax 1200 (model 3062) that stopped working suddenly. Going through the troubleshooting steps, I believe that the circuit board is bad. Since a replacement circuit board costs nearly as much as a new unit, I was searching for a new 3062. However, it appears that this model has been discontinued. Is that true? If so, what model can I purchase where I can simply replace the Powerhead and keep the rest of the existing system including the rail system?
All of the current Genie screw drive model garage door openers would use the same screw drive rail as the 3062 model.
I'm replacing a Genie Pro screw drive 1/2HP (model CM8600) on a wooden single panel garage door (well balanced door and I can lift/close it myself with one hand). Will the MachForce 2 HPc be able to handle this type of door? I do not see where in the instructor manual where door compatibility may be addressed. I ask because other high power Genie motors say that they are not to be used with single panel doors.
Yes, the Machforce would be able to handle that and does work on a one piece garage door.
I have a 10’ high Clopay door x 12’ wide. It does not have any insulation so it is a fairly lightweight aluminum door. Most of the ones I’ve read about here are 7’ with an extension available for 8’. Does Genie work on 10’ tall doors? If so, what model is recommended?
We have garage door openers that will work on 10-foot high doors. They are professional models. To locate a dealer in your area (click here) to enter your zip code.
I have a very heavy wood door. The current opener (a Genie screw drive) was old when we moved In 20 years ago. Is the MachForce 2 HP the best option for a very heavy door?
Yes, the MachForce would be the best option for a heavier door. The door still needs to be well balanced.
140 Volt same as 115 plug I use now
This garage door opener would plug into a standard outlet.
I have 1/2 H.P. Model ISO990 120V 60Hz 5a Door to heavy motor burn up.Can I replace with this one with this one? Genie MachForce 2 HPc Premium Garage Door Opener - Exclusive Screw Drive - Ultimate Strength and Speed w/ a 140-Volt DC Motor Model# 4062-TNMSO
This garage door opener will work on up to a 7-foot high garage door (8-foot with the added extension kit), as long as the garage door is well balanced.
The drive unit of my H400A screw drive Genie opener has failed. Can I purchase a new drive without having to replace the rail/screw part?
We do not sell a new powerhead that will match up to the old style rail.
I have an older model 850 screw drive garage door opener. What replacement can I use without having to replace the rail system?
We do not have a current model that will use the same rail as the 850 screw drive opener did. You would need to replace the entire garage door opener.
How many remotes will the model 4062 support. My old screw drive only supported 7.
The 4062 will hold up to 20 remotes and wireless devices.
I installed this unit (MachForce 2 HPc Premium) about six months ago and I'm really pleased with it. However, I've decided I should have gotten the version with the Aladdin Connect option. Can that be added?
We are happy to hear that you are enjoying the MachForce garage door opener. You can add the Aladdin Connect add on kit to the MachForce model garage door opener.
