Genie screw drive opener stops

newzMay 31, 2009

I have an older Genie screw drive (sd9500) which all of a sudden has started acting odd. It stops partway down and partway up. I tried cranking up the the safety adjustment and even disconnected the safety switch (when there is too much vibration the safety hub hits this switch). I thought it might be the motor thermal fuse but the motor starts right up after a press of the button....doesn't need any cool down time. Now the door goes up a little and down a little....after a minute it tries again. never had a photo sensor safety device so that gets ruled out.

Being an older unit it is pretty basic....I just can't figure what else it could be. Thoughts?

It turned out to be a stuck button on the remote.
