    small red button is to set up the remotes.....once operator is working again, will probably need to reprogram remotes to work.

    first things first, what maker and model opener do you have. was the door in motion when the opener stopped working

Raynor garage door motor won't run and won't open the door. It is not sending power to the system despite being plugged in to a working outlet.

More than likely, the transformer in the opener is fried. You need to verify 110V power coming into the transformer, and that there is 24V AC power coning out of the transformer

The green light on the motor unit is an LED and random flickering is normal. Your problem is most likely caused by an electrical storm or power surge. You will need to remove the logic board from the motor unit and check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit board especially around the small transformer. Your holding that button in will most likely have erased the memory of the unit and all your remotes will need to be programmed once you find your problem. I really suggest you call an technician at this point.

If the main light flashes 10 times when the door stops it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. If the main light doesn't flash you have either a bad IR sensor which is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor or you need to increase the down force which is a control on the rear of the motor unit.

The LED flashing 5 times is the code for "RPM sensor or motor overload". Usually if it is the RPM sensor - which is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor - it will run a few inches and then reverse. I doubt very much it is the motor. I would pull the logic board and check for loose or missing traces on the printed circuit. Especially if you have had any electrical storms or power surges.

Garage door will not open

The light flashing 5 times is the code for RPM sensor or motor overload. The RPM sensor is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor. I would really doubt it is a motor problem unless you have been operating the opener enough that the thermal overload protector has shut it down. It will start running again as soon as it's cooled off.

Pitco fryer sg14R not turn on at all

The hi limit must be tripped. Open the door and find a swich that has a really small red button on it and push it in. If it clicks, it was tripped. If not, with the door open bend way down and look up whare the top of the door is when closed. You will find a small black fuse holder. Push up as you turn, and pull out. Check to see if the fuse is blown, if it is replace with the SAME SIZE & RATING. DO NOT USE TIN FOIL.
