Liftmaster 1/2 hp fuse?

We had a Ike related power surge this morning that blew out three things at my house: two A/C transformers, and apparently, the garage door opener.
Is there fuse built into the unit, or a capacitor or something else i might be able to take car of?
thanks,

For some reason power surges love garage door openers. The only thing I can recommend is you pull the printed circuit board and look for burnt or missing traces. Be sure to unplug the thing first. A surge protector will probably help in the future.

After a power surge my garage door openers both quit working. The outlets are both getting power. The power surge came from outside the home.


Power surges love logic boards. You should remove the boards and check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit. Especially around the small transformer.

Liftmaster 2265 power is intermittent. I have checked outlets and they are fine. I have checked door opener on wall and it works as well???? Any ideas?


I would remove the logic board and check for loose connections on the printed circuit especially around the small transformer. If you have had lightening or power surges you may find burnt or missing traces.

I have a liftmaster Garage Door Opener and when I push the button to open or close it the motor just clicks one time and then nothing happens.


It sounds like you may have had a power surge or lightening in the area. Pull the logic board and check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit especially around the small transformer.

There is no fuse in your opener. The logic board is very susceptible to power surges. You can pull it and check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit.

Have a Craftsman 1/2 HP auto gargae doors. Lost power during a snow storm. Once power was reconnected only thing that did not work was garage doors. Is there a reset button somwhere....can't see one.


There isn't a reset button. Check the house circuit breaker. You may have had a power surge and that can damage the logic board printed circuit. Check the logic board for missing or burnt traces especially around the small transformer.

There is no fuse. You damaged you logic board around $90 for the part. sounds like you have other issuses with your operator if contact issue on your bulb. You might consider replacing your operator.
