Posted by birdsog (My Page) on

I have just replaced the drive geare and worm gear on my opener Model 41A4315-7 chain drive. After putting it back together and tried to open the garage door it blew the house fuse. I am certin I connected the wires corectly. After I reset the breaker there is no power to the door opener.
I have checked the outlet and there is power to it. Is there a reset button or a way to troubleshoot to see if the opener has power.......Thanks.

There is no reset button in the opener. As you found out it uses the house breakers. What wires did you disconnect? The only way to check for power is a volt meter.

I disconnected the motor wires three to be exact. Red, white, and blue and connected it back correctley. not much to it.

Yes you are right there isn't much to replacing three wires but you did say it blew the house fuse.
