Ask a Question
  • will this fit a genie 900

    Yes, the Screw Drive Carriage Assembly- 37845R.S is compatible with the Genie Powerlift 900 (Model 2562).

  • I need a new carriage assembly for model 4053 (53) I find no information on this particular model, please help. It does look like part number 37845r.s for a 4063 model

    Yes, the Screw Drive Carriage Assembly- 37845R.S is compatible with you model.  There actually is no model 4053 at this time, so it is most likely that you have a 4063 model.

  • Is there a replacement part for 33763B.S. Pcg700ml chassie

    No, the carriage assembly nor chassis are available for this model.

  • The carriage is stopping when it hits the screw drive colors and binds up where the rails come together

    This is usually an indicator that the carriage is starting to strip out.  As it will slip in the areas where there are less teeth (clip and collar area).  If your door is out of balance (doesn't hold manually at a midway balance point) this can cause the carriage to strip out prematurely.

  • Door stops at times when opening and closing. How do I know if carriage assembly 37845rs for model 2562 Powerlift 900 Is the problem.Also are the gears on the carriage assembly plastic or metal and they grind down over time? Sometimes it will stop 3 or 4 times in one operation and other times it works fine. Stopping more often lately.

    The carraige has metal teeth. (These teeth can strip out, they are made to do so that other pieces will not break if certain problems happen). To find out if the carriage is the problem, some other troubleshooting will need done. When the garage door opener stops opening or closing the door, do you hear anything? Does the motor keep running? Does the screw keep turning? Does it only happen when it is opening/ closing, or both? You can also contact our Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643.

  • On my screw drive genie garage door opener - it seems to raise a little ways but stops where one of the screw drive collars are - so do need to replace the screw drive or the screw drive shuttle assemble?? does the screw drive have a few spaces in it that may cause this problem??

    From what you are describing it sounds like the carriage is stripping out. This can happen for a few different reasons. If you would like to troubleshoot it before replacing the carriage, you can contact Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643.

  • I have a genie professional line GPower 900 and need a new screw drive carriage assembly. Although I see what looks to be the right part #37845R.S, it does not specify compatibility with my model. Can you recommend the correct part?

    Yes, the 37845R.S is the right part for the GPower 900.

  • I have a power max 1200 revolution series Will this fit ?

    Yes, it will.
