SAFETY RULES
protective clothing if the situation warrants
it.
Personal Safety
Any person working on or around a machine must
be aware of all known safety hazards. Personal
safety and the continued safe operation of the
machine should be your top priority.
Read each procedure thoroughly. This
manual and the decals on the machine
use signal words to identify the following:
Safety alert symbol—used to alert
personnel to potential personal
injury hazards. Obey all safety
messages that follow this symbol
to avoid possible injury or death.
Red—used to indicate the
presence of an imminently
hazardous situation which, if not
avoided, will result in death or
serious injury.
Orange—used to indicate the
presence of a potentially
hazardous situation which, if not
avoided, could result in death or
serious injury.
Yellow with safety alert symbol—
used to indicate the presence of a
potentially hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, may cause
minor or moderate injury.
Yellow without safety alert
symbol—used to indicate the
presence of a potentially
hazardous situation which, if not
avoided, may result in property
damage.
Green—used to indicate operation
or maintenance information.
Be sure to wear protective eye wear and other
iv
Be aware of potential crushing hazards
such as moving parts and free swinging or
unsecured components when lifting or
placing loads. Always wear approved
steel-toed shoes.
Workplace Safety
Be sure to keep sparks, flames and lighted
tobacco away from flammable and
combustible materials such as battery
gases and engine fuels. Always have an
approved fire extinguisher within easy reach.
Be sure that all tools and working areas are
properly maintained and ready for use.
Keep work surfaces clean and free of
debris that could get into machine
components and cause damage.
Be sure that your workshop or work area
is properly ventilated and well lit.
Be sure any forklift, overhead crane or other lifting
or supporting device is fully capable of
supporting and stabilizing the weight to be
lifted. Use only chains or straps that are in
good condition and of ample capacity.
Be sure that fasteners intended for one time use
(i.e., cotter pins and self-locking nuts) are
not reused. These components may fail if
they are used a second time.
Be sure to properly dispose of old oil or
other fluids. Use an approved container.
Please be environmentally safe .

Service Manual - First Edition
Theory of Operation
Power Source
The Genie GS-1530 and GS-1930 machines are
powered by four six-volt (255 AH) batteries. The
four batteries are wired in series to produce 24
volts.
Hydraulic System
All machine functions are performed by the
hydraulic system. The hydraulic system is powered
by a single-section gear pump. When the pump is
activated, it supplies hydraulic fluid under pressure
to the function manifold, where the control valves
are located. To protect from over-pressurization of
the hydraulic system, the pump is provided with a
pressure relief valve.
Activating a machine function is accomplished by
actuating or moving a switch and/or control handle,
which sends voltage to the ECM. The ECM then
sends the signal to the appropriate directional
control valve. The directional valve determines
which direction the hydraulic fluid will travel.
Computer software determines the volume of fluid
in relation to the proportional valve input voltage.
Electrical System
Limit switches are found in various locations on the
machine. The function of a limit switch is to
communicate the operating position of the machine
to the ECM (Electronic Control Module). When a
change in signal is received from a limit switch, the
ECM responds by limiting the drive speed to 0.5
miles per hour (0.8 km/h), according to the default
settings in the ECM software.
controls to activate the various machine functions.
The ECM has predetermined settings for the
various machine functions.
The joystick is fitted with a 5000 ohm
potentiometer. With the joystick in the neutral
position, the potentiometer will measure 2730
ohms. These signals are sent to the multiplex card,
then down to the ECM to control the voltage
supplied to the proportional valve. Two
microswitches mounted on the joystick tell the
ECM the drive direction desired. A thumb rocker
switch on the top of the joystick is used for
steering.
Mounted on the platform control box lid of
machines before serial number 17408 are buttons
and a switch that, when activated, sends a signal to
the ECM through the multiplex card. On machines
after serial number 17407, the platform control box
lid has a decal/membrane pad. This is a touchactivated pad incorporating wiring, switches and
LEDs that are resistant to the environment.
Activating any of the buttons on the pad will send a
signal to the ECM through the multiplex card.
A diagnostic display is located at the battery pack
side of the machine to aid in troubleshooting. If the
machine malfunctions, a fault code will be shown in
the display window.
Washing electronic components is not suggested.
Instead, use compressed air to remove debris from
these components.
Machine Controls
Component damage hazard. Avoid
shock or impact to the ECM.
Internal damage may not be visible
from the outside.
The GS-1530 and GS-1930 machines are
equipped with operational controls which are found
in two locations: the ground controls, located on
the hydraulic tank side of the machine, and the
platform controls, located in the platform. All lift and
drive functions are available at the platform
controls. Only platform up/down functions are
available at the ground controls.
The ECM uses input from the ground or platform

Test or Replace the Hydraulic Oil
6 Remove the motor controller mounting bracket
retaining fasteners and move the motor
controller to the side.
Replacement or testing of the hydraulic oil is
essential for good machine performance and
service life. Dirty oil and suction strainer may
cause the machine to perform poorly and
continued use may cause component damage.
Extremely dirty conditions may require oil changes
to be performed more often.
7 Remove the hydraulic tank from the machine.
This machine uses Dexron
equivalent hydraulic oil. Before
replacing the hydraulic oil, the oil
may be tested by an oil distributor
for specific levels of contamination
to verify that changing the oil is
necessary. If the hydraulic oil
is not replaced at the two year
inspection, test the oil
quarterly. Replace the oil when
it fails the test.
8 Remove the suction strainer and clean it using
a mild solvent.
9 Clean the inside of the hydraulic tank using a
mild solvent.
10 Install the suction strainer using thread sealer
on the threads.
11 Install the drain plug using thread sealer on the
threads.
12 Install the hydraulic filter bracket and the Curtis
motor controller bracket.
Electrocution hazard. The
connectors on the motor controller
will short out to ground if the
motor controller mounting bracket
is not installed before the battery
pack is connected.
Perform this procedure with the
platform in the stowed position.
1 Disconnect the battery pack from the machine.
2 Open the power unit compartment and place a
drain pan or other suitable container under the
hydraulic tank.
3 Remove the drain plug from the hydraulic tank.
Bodily injury hazard. Spraying
hydraulic oil can penetrate and
burn skin. Loosen hydraulic
connections very slowly to allow
the oil pressure to dissipate
gradually. Do not allow oil to squirt
or spray.
13 Install the hydraulic tank.
14 Fill the tank with hydraulic oil until the fluid is
within the FULL and ADD marks on the oil level
indicator decal. Do not overfill.
15 Clean up any oil that may have spilled. Properly
discard of oil.
Hydraulic oil type - Dexron equivalent
Hydraulic tank capacity
Hydraulic system
(including tank)
5 gallons
18.9 liters
5.5 gallons
20.8 liters
4 Completely drain the tank into a suitable
container. See capacity specifications listed
above.
5 Remove the return filter mounting bracket
fasteners from the manifold. Push the filter and
accumulator out of the way.

Electrocution hazard. Contact
with electrically charged circuits
may result in death or serious
injury. Remove all rings, watches
and other jewelry.
Bodily injury hazard. Spraying
hydraulic oil can penetrate and
burn skin. Loosen hydraulic
connections very slowly to allow
the oil pressure to dissipate
gradually. Do not allow oil to
squirt or spray.

General Repair Process
About This Section
When a malfunction is discovered, the flow charts
in this section will help a service professional
pinpoint the cause of the problem. To use this
section, basic hand tools and certain pieces of test
equipment are required—voltmeter, ohmmeter,
pressure gauges.
The location of terminals mentioned in this section
can be found on the appropriate electrical or
hydraulic schematics provided in Section 6,

Since various degrees of a particular function
loss may occur, selecting the appropriate flow
chart may be troublesome. When a function will
not operate with the same speed or power as a
machine in good working condition, refer to the
flow chart which most closely describes the
problem.
LED Diagnostic Readout
The diagnostic readout displays numerical codes
that provide information about the machine
operating status and about malfunctions. The
dot to the right of the numbers will blink during
normal operation codes and remain on with fault
codes.
The codes listed in the Operation Code Chart
are common operational status codes and
malfunction codes that can be cleared easily.
The codes listed in the Fault Code Chart
describe malfunctions and can aid in
troubleshooting the machine by pinpointing the
area or component affected.

Platform Controller
The platform controller is controlled by an ECM
(Electronic Control Module) located in the battery
pack module tray. It is a fully self-contained unit
which is capable of recognizing machine
malfunctions with on-board diagnostics and
displays a fault code on a digital display on the
ECM. This aids in troubleshooting the machine by
pinpointing the fault or malfunction. See the
Troubleshooting section of this manual for a list of
fault codes and additional information. The ECM is
not user-serviceable. For further information or
assistance, consult the Genie Industries Service
Department.

Software Configuration
How to Determine the Revision
Level
The ECM (Electronic Control Module) contains
programming for all configurations of the GS-1530
and GS-1930. The platform controls can be
adjusted to a different configuration by changing the
combination of the DIP switch settings. The DIP
switch is located on the circuit board inside the
platform control box.
DIP switches have two positions - ON or OFF. When
reading the DIP switch code in the DIP Switch
Code Chart, the ON and OFF are represented by the
numbers 1 (ON) and 0 (OFF).
Select a test area that is firm, level
and free of obstructions.
Models before serial number 17408
were not adjustable when they
were shipped from the factory. If
the ECM (Electronic Control
Module) has been updated to
revision "b0" or later, or if the
model's serial number is after
17407, you can access the
revision level of the ECM by using
the following procedure:
1 Remove the platform controls from the
platform.
2 Turn the key switch to platform control and pull
out the Emergency Stop buttons to the ON
position at both the ground and platform
controls.
3 Press and hold the lift enable button and the
function enable switch. Move the joystick
handle to the UP position to raise the platform.
Observe the code shown in the LED display
window, located on the battery pack side of the
machine.
Result: The configuration code of the DIP
switch will appear in the LED display window.
4 Press and hold the lift enable button and the
function enable switch. Move the joystick
handle to the DOWN position to lower the
platform. Observe the code shown in the LED
display window, located on the battery pack
side of the machine.
Result: The software revision level will appear
in the LED display window. If revision level "b0"
appears in the display window, the procedure
under How to Set the DIP Switch Codes on the
next page will apply. If revision level "A" is
displayed, the procedure will not apply.
5 Push in the Emergency Stop button to the OFF
position at both the ground and platform
controls and turn the key switch to the OFF
position.
