Setting Limits on Older Genie Garage Door Openers

genie-screw-drive-opener-limit-switch-program

Older model Genie screw drive openers utilize limit switches that actually attach to the operator rails,

some have a lever that is about 2 1/2” inches long that stop the trolley when the trolley contacts the

lever and some have magnetic stops mounted to the operator rails. Adjusting these types of limit

switches requires the use of a screw drive or socket to loosen the set screw on the limit switch bracket.

The set screw only needs to be loosened enough to allow the bracket to slide on the rail. The limits are

manually set to allow the door to open and close to the desired position. There are two limits on these

model openers one to control the open limit and one to control the close limit. These adjustments are

very simple to make and can be done most DIY’ers.

The limits can be adjust simply by closing the door fully and setting the down limit switch at the fully

closed location and opening the door fully and setting the open limit switch at the fully open position.
