Does your garage door opener not have any power despite the fact that there’s power to the outlet? You work the switch, yet there’s no sound or lights. Chances are you have a bad circuit board. The most common cause is lightning strikes.
Circuit boards are the entire plastic housing system that holds the lightbulb and wire terminals. You’ll find the part number directly on the board itself. Though the idea of replacing the board may seem like brain surgery, it’s actually a fairly easy garage door repair. It takes about 10 minutes. All you need is a new board and a ¼ inch nut driver.
Remove the light cover and light bulb. Disconnect the switch and safety sensor wires. Remove a few screws. Reapply the new board and put everything back together. You’re done. Congratulations.
A new board runs about $80. It’s a good idea to protect it with a surge protector, which you can get at most hardware stores for about $10.
