Hello Sir or Madam and thanks for choosing the Appliance category.

  • Did you check for the presence of 120 volts at the outlet?
  • If you overloaded the circuit (or used an undersized extension cord), the circuit breaker at the electric meter may have tripped.

The outlet that I used supplied an existing opener that I was replacing. The circut breaker was not blown.

  • First thing to check is 120 volts at outlet.
  • Its best to use a multimeter, but you can at least plug in a lamp or a vacuum cleaner into the outlet in question.

There is 120 volts at outlet

  • If you checked the voltage with a multimeter, we will need to open the case and check internal voltages.
  • Follow the power cord from the outside to its connection inside the case.
  • If you are lucky, you will find the point where the 120 volts ac disappears.
