Genie 1/2 HP Screw Drive Opener Won't Open

16 years ago

We have a Genie 1/2HP screw drive garage door opener which suddenly stopped opening. It will close fine, won't open. We replaced the carriage, adjusted the force screws and the fine adjustments for the limit switches and still, it will not open. The screw engages and tries to open the door, but it just sits there. If we open it manually, we can close it fine using the garage door opener. Springs and cables look OK. Any suggestion or is a new one in order. If a new one, any great ones around rated 1/2HP or higher. Thanks for any info.
