Genie Model 7055 Troubleshooting

Here are a few of the genie model 7055 problems and troubleshooting against them, including how to reset and owners manual for the users.

Genie model 7055 red light blinking

  1. If both round and long LED’s are blinking, unplug the opener motor for five seconds, and replug. If the lights go back to normal, it was just a program error. If they both continue to blink, it’s probably not user-serviceable.
  2. If the round LED is blinking and the long LED is off, it is usually the door sensors that are obstructed or knocked out of line.
  3. If the Long LED is blinking and the round LED is off, it is usually a bad roller or hinge that won’t let the door move freely, something stuck in a track or a bent track.

The garage door reverses after hitting the floor

Your garage door openers limit setting most likely needs to be modified. This mechanism determines how far the door will open or close before stopping. If the limit setting is placed beyond the point at which the garage door fully shuts, the opener may incorrectly believe the door has met an object and reverse. For information on how to adjust the limit settings for your Genie model, consult your user’s manual.

The Door to the Garage Openes and Closes by Itself

A short circuit in your garage door opener system is usually the cause of this. The short is almost always in one of your transmitters or controllers (the keypad, wall button, or remote control). Remove the batteries from each transmitter one at a time and try to control the door with one of the other devices to see which one is causing the problem. Once you’ve located the source of the problem, remove the batteries and get it changed or fixed by a professional.

The Remote Control Won’t Work

If your Genie garage door remote isn’t working at all, ensure that it’s correctly programmed and has fresh batteries.

The batteries in your Genie garage door remote may be losing charge if it isn’t operating reliably or just at a short-range. Alternatively, the gadget might have reached the end of its useful life.

There’s also the danger of electrical interference. LED light bulbs are one of the most common sources of electrical interference. It’s possible that an LED bulb you just put on or near your garage door opener is the source of the problem. What is the solution? Genie has created its own LED light bulb with the goal of reducing or eliminating this type of interference.
