View Full Version : OT: Need schematic diagram for Genie Pro garage door opener
06-30-2011, 10:38 AM
I've searched a bit with no luck. Anyone know where I can get one?
I want to re-purpose the circuit boards so I can use the remote control on something else, and I need to see how I can work around the limit switches and light beam thingies.

Have you tried a local garage door installer company?

Yes. They told me they don't do anything with the circuit boards except replace them if they're not working, so they don't need the schematics for the boards.
Sadly, it's plug-n-play for almost everything today.

We smoked a ckt bd in our opener. Tried the search/buy/repair avenue, but all I got was negative comments, no longer available, why are you such a tightwad, get lost, etc.
Pulled up Craigslist and found complete setups, two remotes, good working order, on and on. Seems around here, apartment renters buy/install new opener for their own use. I found a 2 YO wormdrive, for free, but had to remove it myself. Landlord presumed the renter would leave it---but renter said 'KMA'.

Winchman, have you tried, (gulp,) calling Genie? I just installed one and had an immediate fault. After much to-ing and fro-ing they decided that I needed a new control board AND a new motor driver, which they promptly sent. They are really helpful people. Anyway, when I opened the unit up, I noticed that the flat interconnecting cable was pretty sloppily installed and some of the pins were partially pulled. I changed out the boards and everything worked like a charm.
I SUSPECT, but cant prove, that there is really nothing wrong with the original boards. Basically what we both have is a driver unit and controller for a 6 amp 90 volt DC motor. Please let me know what you find out.

This web site has owners manuals with schematics for most of the Geni's

Thanks for the link. I was hoping for something about the actual board circuitry, but the schematic for the components will definitely help.
The one I have has an AC motor. The receiver, RPM sensor, limit switches, and light beam work off low voltage DC.
If I can figure out how to simulate the RPM sensor and light beam signals, I'll be in business. The motor will only run a few seconds with the RPM sensor disconnected, and it will only run in the up direction without the light beam signal.
