My garage door opener does not do anything when I push the button ?!

Yes, it’s a call we get often — What should you look for first?

The first thing that you should do is check to be sure that the opener is still plugged into the electric outlet. Sometimes it’s as simple as a loose plug. Secondly you should confirm that there is power coming out of the electric outlet. Plug a lamp or something in and see if it has power, or, you can temporarily plug the garage door opener into another outlet with a extension cord. If there is power getting to the opener then there is most likely some type of mechanical or electrical problem within the garage door opener itself. This will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.
