Chamberlain Garage Door Won't Open

My chamberlain garage door won't open due to a thunderstorm.

We checked breakers and they are good. We tried reset button but all it does is click and the light over the reset flashes.

The big light doesn't come on at all and the sensors are not lit.

Is there anyway to fix this without buying a new one?



You have likely experienced an electrical surge during the storm.

If you have your garage door opener checked you will probably be advised that there are sensors or a complete control board burnt out.

How much will it cost to have your local service company replace the control board?

You have to decide whether it is better to repair or replace the entire assembly. A lot depends on how old your current garage door opener is.

You should consider including a surge suppressor with any repairs or replacement.
