Hello, I'm Ray and would be happy to help you. Did you checked your outlet to make sure power is coming out of it? Your house power went off and came back on the it wouldn't power on after?

checked power I can get the time set ok After that it is scrambled
It ends up telling me to close door and continues telling me that. Also when door is closed lite is always on. I can have someone come to work on it if needed. Just wondering if it can be done or do I buy a new one

It sounds like the computer control board got shorted out when the power came back on. The part usually cost around $100. How old is the machine?

6 yrs old.

If someone comes out to do the repairs it may cost you around $300 total.. Just being honest, Sometimes you come out better just replacing it
