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.
