Genie Frequency remotes

Posted by jill_kc (My Page) on

I have a Genie garage door opener Model 409 that I'm sure is ancient, but in good working order. The remote is not. I have purchased a replacement and set the dip switches accordingly, but no luck opening the door. Advice (via long distance phone call with brother) was that the frequncy of the new opener may not be the same. Any idea how I can figure the frequency? I do not have an owner's manual and (surprisingly) am not finding much help on the internet.
Or, any other ideas of what may be wrong?

The problem is it could just as easily be the receiver as the remote. The paperwork with your new remote should verify that it will work with your model. Your brother is right. Not all remotes are the same. Only a technician can determine if it is in fact your receiver.

Purchase a rolling code unit with receiver and remote.
