Genie Model 404 GDO question

Landers3March 20, 2013

It operates normally, after I cleaned the upper & lower limit switches, but there's a wire disconnected inside the drive unit. I think the wire should connect a Torque Sensing switch at the rear of the shaft, to the sequencer board. There's what looks to be a diode coming from the board, with one loose end that might be where the wire should go. I really don't want to chance blowing the board by experimenting. Does anyone know for sure about this wire? Thanks.

Could that wire be the antenna for your remote?

The remote receiver is separate, and connects externally to a terminal strip. This is inside and looks like a torque limiting arrangement and the wire was just hanging loose inside the housing. Thanks for the reply.
