How to Get a New Genie Garage Door Opener

If you're wondering how to get a new Genie garage door opener, the answer is simple - choose the quality, selection and affordability of North Shore Commercial Door! We offer a range of standard-duty, medium-duty and heavy-duty Genie garage door openers for residential and commercial use, in addition to factory original receivers and their highly advanced IntelliCode transmitters.

How to Program an IntelliCode Opener

Programming an IntelliCode opener from Genie is very easy to do - simply press the "Learn" button on the control unit, then press the button on your remote to activate the connection and after the main unit starts to blink, press the button again to complete the program. If this doesn't work, your receiver memory may be full. To clear it, press and hold the "Learn" button for 30 seconds. This procedure applies to most remotes that have a smart Learn button feature, regardless of the brand. You can also use this method to reset your remote, for security purposes. For a complete, fully illustrated "how to" guide, see our video "How to Program a Garage Door Opener Remote w/ Learn Button." We have many other Genie instructional videos discussing their openers, remotes, circuit boards and more.

What Battery Does My Genie Remote Use?

Genie IntelliCode remotes use 2-pack 12-volt alkaline batteries, which are compatible with the following Genie remotes: GIT-1, GIT-3, GMIC-2 and GIFTD-1. These Genie garage door remote controls are also known as ACSCTG Type 1, ACSCTG Type 2, ACSCTG Type 3 and ACSMGI Type 2.

If you have a Genie remote model GIC-T390, GICT390, GICTD or TBSTG Type 1, those Genie remote transmitters use lithium 3-volt wafer batteries, which are about the size of a coin. Be sure to install them with the positive side facing up.
