Customer Question

Liftmaster 1345/46 1/3 HP. Power to outlet is good. The only thing working on the device
is a flickering light in the wall mounted door control. Nothing else works. The learn indicator lights don't work and the main bulb for the unit doesn't activate. ( Bulb works in other sockets.) Pushing the flickering wall mounted door control doesn't work either. The light continues to flicker but no activation of door.

Hi there,

Can you test the power to the motor using a multimeter and let me know what voltage it is receiving?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry Pete, I'm not an electrician and don't have a multimeter. Is your diagnosis that the
power in the device is dead and can't be repaired or is there something I can do?
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.


I would need test results to confirm the diagnosis, however I suspect that the motor has died and will need to be replaced.
