Overhead Door Garage Door Opener model 55b closing force

by Bruce
(Farmington, Ct, USA)

I have an old Model 55b Overhead garage door. Works fine.

Need to adjust closing pressure/ sensitivity. Can not locate the screw on the unit to adjust.

I do not have the owners manual.

Anyone know where to locate the adjustment or the manual?


Overhead Door Garage Door Openers are made by Genie so the manuals are the same.

Current manuals are online. You will find download links at http://www.garagedooropenerguide.com/genie-owners-manuals.html

The adjustment is usually on one side of the opener. On some models it may be necessary to remove the cover to find it.
