When my 12 year old craftsman finally broke I decided to go looking for a replacement. I settled on this genie since it was around the same price as replacing with a chain drive craftsman. I was worried that this would require a lot of work to replace. To my delight the old craftsman brackets worked with this genie! I was also able to use the wires from the old sensors and wall switch.
Here is a short review of this new unit.
Took me about 3 hours total including removing the old opener (took about 30 mins to remove), setting limits and force, and programming remotes and homelink in my cars.
I did have the luxury of using the old header mount and motor mounts that used to hold the craftsman which saved me a lot of time.
The only thing that should be changed are the sensors. They are hardwired on the sensor unit so you have to cut the wire and splice if you already are prewired for sensors. Not that big of a deal but just adds and extra step. They do provide wire ties for this.Read more ›
After looking at lots of different chain driver models. I spotted the Genie on sale at Menard's for [...] (plus a [...] rebate). I liked the idea of belt drive and the opener had two remotes. The only feature missing was a motion detector light.
Installation was straight forward. I got the entire thing installed and wired in about three hours. To adjust the opener, on the power-head you simply press the open button till you are full open, do the same for the close. It is all electronic, no mechanical limit switches.
What I really like about the opener is that it is quiet, and it slows down for the last 12" of open of close.
Since it did not have a motion detector light, I purchased a two bulb motion light for $10.00. It works great. Open the inside door and the light comes on. Drive up with the door open and the light comes on.
All in all I'm very pleased with the Genie Opener. I have only had it for 10 days but so far so good.
I have several eamails and tweets to Genie asking for help. If they respond, I will update.
Pro: it was EXTREMELY quiet and easy to install.
Con: replacing the entire unit for a $5 PLASTIC sprocket.
Recommendation: Do not buy.
DO NOT BUY. IT WILL FAIL as the other accurate reviews have already mentioned.
