Installed in 2003, problem, with no door hooked up, motor is unable to
turn screw for more than a few seconds. Torque adjustments (up and down)
full clockwise. Disconnecting screw and rail from motor, I have a very
difficult to turn screw. Cleaned all the old grease out of channel in
rail and screw itself. Three section rail and screw. Genie could only
suggest loosening the 8 bolts holding the 3 sections of rail together but
this did nothing to help. Seems to me that screw should turn freely in
the extruded aluminum rail. Can not see any burrs, damage, or bent parts.
How to find why screw is hard to turn? Suggestions?

i dunno. i monkeyed around to learn to repair my only opener and even
bought it a part and paid a pro to install the part, but had to
replace the whole thing because it was just cheaper than dumb me
trying to fix it again when i was incorrect about the part it needed
in the first place. it is a comfort and security item for your home.
maybe it's worth a buck or 2 a day for a year of not having it break
for another 7 years.
