Genie Model 1022 Garage Door Opener Reviews:

Many of the buyers of this product stated that they were easily able to install the new opener by following the clear and detailed instructions. The packages of necessary hardware were separated into individual boxes and clearly numbered and programming the remote was simple to do.

Reviewers stated that it was very easy to program the upper and lower limits which control the beginning and the end of the door travel. Door movement is designed to begin slowly to reduce the strain on the door and to slow down when the door is close to stopping for a smooth, quiet experience.

One reviewer mentioned that adding the Homelink programming into his two vehicles was accomplished without any problems. Homelink allows a button inside certain vehicles to be used to open and close your garage door instead of needing to use a separate remote control.

Another benefit of the Genie model 1022 is that the built-in electronic programming will even tell you if the chain adjustment is too tight during installation.

It was also noted that the “safety beams”, which are designed to help prevent the closing of the door on small children, animals or other objects, are an excellent addition to the unit and are easy to adjust for optimum performance.

Negative comments on this particular door opener were very limited.

One writer noted that when he purchased the product he was not aware that it could only be used on doors that are 7 feet tall and less.

Another buyer stated that within 5 months the chain connector broke and he was unable to easily obtain parts.

Still another buyer was surprised that the necessary track needed to attach the motor to the ceiling was not included in the package. Due to the various possible installations, track material is not normally included with any opener.

The Genie 1022 Garage Door Opener is recommended for anyone wanting an easily installed, quiet door opener for a single 7 foot garage door.
