    Genie garage door opener and my lights stay on?

    Could a relay have gone bad?

    The opener has a button for Lights and for opening. If I hit the one for lights - nothing. The lights stay on.

    They don't go out after a while when the opener is shut (Standard.)

    lights

    I would check the control board. The lamp(s) operate off a timer on the control board.

    You got yourself a sticky relay that not getting any better. Sometimes you can tap on the relay and it will work a little again. Heat and age,

    I am interested in this thread and have the same problem with a Genie Excellerator. There are two relays on the motor board but I am not sure which one commands the lights and is sticking. I tried to hear the click with a stethoscope but that did not work.

    One relay is a single pole double throw (833H-1C-C) and the other a double pole double throw (845HN-2C-C).

    Once you find your relay, you can order it from mouser.com (relays are less than $1 typically, with shipping around $5).

    If anyone can help me with the relay to replace I would appreciate it (I would replace both but 845HN-2C-C is out of stock and I would rather not spend the time on finding a compatible one if I do not have to).
