Any good hardware store (like Lowe's or Home Depot). Most door bolts have a removable rectangular screw plate.

Give this a try. I am not certain that you can adjust the speed of the opener just the reversing and closing tolerances.

You do not repair them. Go to home depot or Lowe's and purchase a new set. They are not expensive. If the movers broke item why are you trying to repair it? Call company and have them replace the sensors.

Good Morning:

I also substituted Floescent Bulbs for the standard bulbs. The bulbs would not light up although the relay was working. It seemed that the Florescent bulbs had a somewhat shorter neck. What I did was unplug the drive system from the outlet and then bend the metal connector in the socket so that it would come out further towards the opening of the socket. I then repluged the drive. The Floercent bulbs now have contact and are working perfectly. Simple problem with a simple solution.

Without actually seeing the cables and springs, I would say the new springs are tighter than before and pull more weight slacking up the cables, it's very dangerous but if you put them on I'm sure you know that, but try to take some of the tension off the springs and then it will tighten the cables. Or you can adjust the door travel distance at the actual motor

Sorry they are not compatible. Home Depot or Lowe's sell Genie remotes, they are not expensive.
