Climb a step ladder to reach the ceiling-mounted Genie rail system and motor head.
Unscrew the two rail system screws. The two screws are attached to the rail system that fits into the motor head. Slide off the rail. Place the rail in a safe location.
Pull out the stripped coupler from the motor head with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Discard the damaged coupler.
Insert the new coupler into the motor head. The bumper will hold it in place. Re-insert the rail into the slot of the motor head. Screw in the two screws to hold the rail in place.
Press the wall-mounted start button to test the Genie garage door opener.
