Normally you can use existing brackets to mount the new garage door opener. Some modifications may need to be made. If you would like to get more details, we would need a little more information about what you had and what you are installing. Please contact Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643.

This will not work on a sliding door.
Hello I have a SilentMax 1000 Model 3042. I replaced the circuit board due to a suspected power surge. Everything is back up and running with the exception of the hardwired grey/black button keypad. The red light is on. No open/close or light function. Do you have any ideas why this wouldn't work? Thank you
If you replace the circuit board with a new one, you would need the Series II wall console. The older Series III wall console will not work with the new boards for the SilentMax 1000.
What model would replace a 3060L?
Any of the current Genie model garage door openers could replace the 3060L model. This really will depend on the preference and needs that you have for a new one. The 3060L had Intellicode technology and so do all of our new ones, so they would be secure and use the same wireless technology. If you have any questions about the new models please let us know and we are happy to help you!
How much space does this unit require between the ceiling and the top of the door?
You will need at least 2 1/2 inches above the highest point of travel of the garage door to install this garage door opener.
Hi, I have 9 ft garage doors, having a hard time finding a 2 ft extension, do you all make such a thing and if so where can I purchase it?
No, the extension kit will only work on up to an 8-foot high garage door.
my unit does not respond to the wall control unit (except the light switch) or the remote. Up and down buttons on the unit work. What's a possible reason for this?
This could be a problem with the wall console. Have you replaced the circuit board in the garage door opener?
Does the 3042 Model replace the 3024?
Yes, it can be used to replace the 3024 model.
Is the 3120H-2TXK discontinued or is it replaced with another model. Is this consider one of your more quiet openers?
Our belt drive model garage door openers are considered the quietest of our line up. The 3120H models are still available. They are part of our professional line of Genie garage door openers and are available through any Genie dealer.
My silentmax 1000 has a blue flashing light and will not open are close but it has power. Can you tell me why?
The long blue light flashing on the powerhead can mean that your vacation lock (sure lock) is on (at the wall console). On the wall console make sure to switch off the lock button, then the door will operate as normal.
