My Genie garage door opener's motor would run when I pushed the button, but it would not lift the garage door.

Instead of spending $200 on a new opener, I spent $1.75 and 20 minutes and got my Genie Screw Drive working again. Tips on replacing: disconnect screw rail with door open so you can lay the rail on top of the door. Use a ladder with at platform that you can place the motor head on after you disconnect it from the ceiling. Watch your wires when you are moving the motor head around - so you don't pull any out accidentally. When you remove the old coupler, (it just pulls out) make sure to remove any debris left inside the hole it goes into before you put in the new coupler. Reconnect the screw rail to the motor head before you mount the motor head back on the ceiling - easier to align the holes the bolts go into. Make sure you remount the motor head straight so that the screw rail is perpendicular to the garage door. If your door starts and stops after you replace the coupler, you need to adjust the force screws on the motor head.

It you can see that your Genie door opener motor shaft is turning but the drive screw is not rotating to lift your door, your problem is the coupler. It's been stripped out. Don't throw your door opener away. For a couple of bucks you can get the replacement coupler (the coupler joins the motor shaft to the drive screw) and easily install it yourself. Just undo the bolts that connect the drive screw mechanism to the motor unit and pull the drive screw shaft out away from the motor. Pull the coupler off the motor shaft and insert the new one in its place. Then insert the drive screw shaft into the coupler (you'll have to rotate the screw shaft to get the squared end lined up with the square hole in the coupler) and bolt it back in place. It's really simpler than it sounds.

This part is the exact replacement for the coupler in your Genie screw type opener. It is made of plastic for a reason. If your door experiences resistance from of other things, broken return spring, wheel bound up, track misaligned, lack of lube on the screw, or sudden stop into an object, it will strip out on the motor end of the coupler so as not to ruin your motor. If you have to replace this piece one of the things I mentioned is probably the reason. So investigate what caused the problem or you will be replacing it again. Mine stripped because the return spring had lost it's tension and was no longer helping lift the door, and eventually stripped the coupler.

this part is designed to fail if the screw encounters too much resistance. In our case the limit switch was bare metal tabs which had enough surface corrosion (and too little voltage) that they did not respond when the door went down. So this thing broke.. Not too hard to fix yourself. If the motor is humming but the screw does not turn, probably you broke yours. Clean your limit switches with acid or something, ours looked fine the first time. The second time I used steel wool on them. Good so far. :D

Door would not open but the motor was running. The coupler did the job and was a simple fast repair.

This was a hard part to find locally. It was also an expensive part when I did find it. Amazon provided me with a good price and fast delivery. I even bought spares so I have a few extra couplers in the garage.

Do your research before fully replacing your garage door opener, this little coupler saved me about $200. Youtube install instructions and it couldn't work better! Thanks!

Garage door wouldn't open or close. Took screw drive carriage off and replaced it because it was stripped. Unfortunately,replacing this one piece in our 12year-old garage door opener did not "do the trick" . After a little further "Internet search" , I read that the issue might be an inexpensive part called a "coupler" so I replaced this along with a screw drive limit switch that was also broken and "voila" the garage was fixed with the added bonus of it being quieter than it had been in years!!!
