Press and hold the open arrow (+) until the long LED come 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.

    • What is the difference between this (SilentDrive 1000) and the SilentDrive 750 (3055-TKSV)? The specs are both listed as belt-drive 3/4 HPc units, with the same features.

      The Genie SilentMax 1000 comes with a 3-Piece Channel Rail and has a 140V motor. The SilentMax 750 (3055-TKSV) comes with a 5-Piece tube style rail and has a 24V Motor. The SilentMax 1000 is rated to work on up to a 750lb door, and the SilentMax 750 is rated for a 500lb door.

      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.

    • Is the 3120H-2TXK discontinued or is it replaced with another model. Is this consider one of your more quiet openers?

    • 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?

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • I have a sliding barn door type garage door. What is the maximum opening travel?

      This will not work on a sliding door.

    • Will the 3042-tkh silent max install using the hanger brackets used on the Isd990 WITHOUT MODIFICATION?

      No, they will need to be modified due to the different dimensions.


      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 is just plugs into a normal outlet. 

    • is there a extension kit for model 3024 for a 10 ft. door

      No, 3042-TKH SilentMax® 1000 Belt Drive ¾ HPc Model Garage Door Opener can only operate up to an 8 foot door with an extension kit. For a 10 foot tall door, you would need to get a pro unit from your local Genie dealer.
