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,

My Klipsch cs 500 has no sound. Blue light is on and I have tried every combination on remote to no avail. Any ideas?


There is the panel mounted 4amp fuse, and then there is a circuit mounted 6amp inline fuse as well. Mine blew due to a power surge that blew up other things in my house as well. It’s a bear to get the circuit board screws off, and some green sealant off! Step 1) I’m ordering a panel mounted fuse holder that is the same style as the 4amp fuse holder. Step 2) drill hole in panel, and install fuse holder Step 3) no need to remove old fuse (since its blown) so I’m soldering wires from new fuse holder to the fuse ends on the circuit board

I have a 47 inch sanyo. model# dp46848. A transformer blew in a lightning storm and now the tv will not power on. The power light will come on for 5-10 seconds and then shut off. The tv was on a surge...


But, was the cable/satellite feed protected? Lightning can come in from anywhere, not just the power line. The bad thing about the way cable and satellite installers ground things is, they ground to the same grounding system that the house does, which can backfeed the surge through the entire house - it shouldn't, but it can.

I would, however, contact the maker of the surge strip and attempt to file a damage claim. They all come with a liability warranty of some sort.

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.

Think Power surge blew out radio. Can it be fixed?


The fix may be as simple as replacing a fuse. Location varies by model, but each has an internal fuse on one of its circuit boards. SAFETY NOTE: It may seem obvious, but be sure to disconnect power from the set before you open the case.

If the fuse is not the problem, you will need to seek professional repair. Unfortunately, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

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.
