The electrical requirement for a Genie garage door openers is a standard 120V outlet. Unless building codes require higher standards, we recommend using a dedicated 15 amp breaker for a single opener*, and a dedicated 20AMP breaker for 2 or 3 openers. We also recommend a surge protector to protect against power surges.
First check whether the power source has been disrupted. Be sure that the opener is plugged into a working outlet and check the switches in your breaker box. If the electrical connections are fine, turn your attention to the powerhead controls, in particular, the two LED indicators on the opener unit.
Both these circuits need a minimum of two wires but four wire is better, 22 gauge or better with a tracer for polarity identification.
We recommend 18-24 gauge wiring for the sensors and wall console. The wire is 24 gauge.
Garage door openers have two power options — alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC). AC currents are strong and can change direction, and DC currents flow in one direction and can be stored.
The CPS needs a 24 volt AC power source, standard for garage door transformers.
If the lights on your garage door opener aren`t flickering when you press the button, the fuse, GFCI or circuit breaker might have burned out. In that case, try resetting the breaker or replacing the fuse. The garage door opener`s motor may have failed, and you may need to replace the garage door opener.
The model number of the Genie opener is typically located on the motor head or rail (1-2 feet from the powerhead, check both sides). It will be on a silver or white sticker with the word model number printed on it. This fuse is located on the circuit board 36428R. S.
All residential garage door openers manufactured for use in the United States and Canada are rated for 120V AC, 60Hz line power.
Yes, You Can Install a Garage Door Opener!! All popular-brand garage door openers come with detailed, step-by-step instructions for mounting the opener motor, the drive system components, and the controls and for making the electrical connections.
Garage Door Opener Wiring

Garage door openers use an outlet in the ceiling for power. The wired controller and sensors use low voltage wiring (usually 24V) to connect to the motor unit.

Garage door cables have an integral role in the proper operation of the garage door. These cables are attached to brackets at the bottom of each side of the door and work in unison with the garage door springs to lift and lower the weight of the door as needed.

When the door opens it slams into the unit I did adjust it almost all the way out and it still slams
ANSWER : Are you sure you are adjusting the limit controls and not the force controls.. depending on the age of the opener the limits controls are on the side and the force controls are on the back and they are blue. If you are adjusting the limits and nothing is changing you then either have a bad limit rack or circuit board. I just changed out a rack a little bit ago.

I have 2 problems with my Craftsman Garage Door opener:
1. I have a 2 door-garage & 2 remote controls
Both remote controls can open one garage door (since they were originally programmed). They cannot open the other garage door even after following all the steps to reprogram them to the non functional garage door. However, when I point either remote control key to the big black box on top, the yellow light from the box blinks. However, the garage door will not open

2. About the same door: Whenever I close the problematic garage door, the door would immediately go back up as soon as it touches the ground. I have to keep tweaking with the manual switch on the wall to finally get the garage door closed.

What I need to do?

ANSWER : I can’t help you on programming.
If the door goes up as soon as it touches down, it is going too far down.
Locate the adjustment on the box on top. There should be four adjusters:
Door down amount more or less
Door up amount more or less
Force down more or less
Forch up more or less.
Turn the Door down amount toward the “LESS” or “-”
Let me know how you do.
