Safe-T-Reverse® Contact Reversing System
Automatically stops and reverses a closing door within two seconds of contact with an object.
Automatic ForceGuard™ Control
Automatically sets the force required to fully open and close the door for maximum safety.
Watch Dog™ Monitoring System
Monitors the Safe-T-Beam® system to ensure proper functionality and will automatically stop and reverse a closing door if a problem is detected.
Manual Emergency Release

SmartSet™ Electronic Programming
Easily adjust the programming to reduce opening speed to a desired rate, vary limits and force, and program new remotes.
Automatic Lighting System
Two bulb lighting system supplies up to 200 Watts of light for safer evening exits and entries. Turns ON when door is activated\ and automatically turns OFF 4 minutes later.
Integrated Motion Detection
(Not available on all models) Select units have motion detection built into the powerhead. Lights automatically turn ON when motion is detected for much safer movement through the garage. Lights will turn OFF after 4 minutes of no motion.
INTELLICODE® 2 Access Security System
A new generation superior encryption system that enhances the securi ty of the door opener by continuously changing the access code each time the remote is used. The door opener esponds to each new code only once. An access code copied from a working system and tried again will not control the door opener.
Wall Console, Series III
Operates door opener from inside garage. The Wall Console has an Indicator Light with Open/Close, Sure-Lock™, and Independent Light Control buttons.
Homelink® and Car2U® compatible. Refer to the programming instructions.
TRANSMITTER COMPLIANCE STATEMENT
Transmitters comply with all United States and Canadian legal requirements as of the date of manufacture. No warranty is made that they comply with all legal requirements of any other jurisdiction. If transmitters are to be used in another country, the importer must determine compliance with any local laws and which m regulations ay differ from the United States and Canadian requirements prior to use.
OVERVIEW OF POWERHEAD CONTROLS
This section describes the simple programming functions. Use this page to familiarize yourself with the buttons and LED indicators used to program the opener.
NOTE: These and buttons are for programming use only. Do NOT use these buttons to operate the opener.
There are three programming buttons and two lights (LEDs) on the powerhead. Each of the buttons are used to enter and complete the setup programming. The LEDs indicate status or a function change by illuminating ON, OFF, or ON flashing in one of three different colors: BLUE, RED, or PURPLE.
- Enters into and selects programming menus.
- Multi-function; move door during programming & advance through menus
Both LEDs can be Red, Blue, Purple or off, depending on the programming step you are performing.
INFRARED PROTECTION FUNCTION
- The Safe-T-Beam® has no effect on the door during an opening cycle.
- If the Safe-T-Beam® detects an obstruction when trying to close the door, it will not allow the door to move.
- When the garage door is closing, if Safe-T-Beam® is interrupted by person or obstacle, the garage door will stop its downward travel and reverse automatically to its fully opened position.
- If the Safe-T-Beam® System fails, loses power, or is installed improperly, press and hold the wall console “open/close” button until the door reaches its fully closed position. If yourelease the “open/close” button on the wall console during the closing movement the door will reverse automatically to its fully opened position.
Begin here ONLY AFTER completing assembly and installation of the opener. Review the Assembly & Installation Poster to ensure all steps have been performed.
There are no assembly or installation steps included in this manual. Contact your Genie® Professional Dealer for an installation poster, if needed, or call 1-800 35-GENIE. You may also visit www.geniecompany.com to download a pdf. file.
Before you begin Programming, check to make sure there are no objects in the garage door opening.
There are four Powerhead program menus:
- Remote Program (Default menu)
- Limits Program
- Force Program
- Speed Program
ADJUSTMENT OF FORCE & SPEED SETTINGS IS IN THE MAINTENANCE &TROUBLESHOOTING SECTION.
- Force settings are set at the factory and do not normally require operator programming but can require minor adjustment under certain conditions. See Troubleshooting.
- Speed settings are set at the factory and are self- adjusting when needed. Speed Settings do not normally require manually initiated changes.
Make sure doorway is in view and clear of obstacles and people to avoid injury or damage to property. DO NOT operate this unit from wall console before LIMITS and FORCE are set. Severe damage to the opener can occur The bullet MUST be engaged to carriage BEFORE setting limits. See Installation Poster (if provided) or call Customer Service at 800-35-GENIE or visit www.geniecompany.com
NOTE: If bullet has NOT been engaged to the carriage, do so no.
- Please note that there is a 30 second timeout between each programming step.
- If you see two flashing RED LEDs, you have initiated a timeout.
- In the event of a timeout you must restart at beginning.
CONTACT REVERSE TEST
WARNING: A moving door can cause serious injury or death.
- Keep people clear of opening while door is moving.
- Do NOT allow children to play with opener, including wall console, remote, or wireless keypad.
- During programming, door opener could begin to run, so stay away from moving door and its parts.
