Yesterday, my wall-mounted garage door opener was working fine. Today, the opener is not working. There is no green light or any other sign of it working. I tried pressing it a few times but no response.

The opener still works with the remote outside the garage to enter.

I opened the button and touched both wires together as mentioned in another post but that didn't open the garage door.

  • What's the make and model of the opener and button? – Tester101 May 27 '16 at 14:24
  • Mousie chewed the wire...or something similar. – Ecnerwal May 27 '16 at 15:22
  • Is it a hardwire controller? If so it doesn't need batteries. However just recently I've started noticing in garage buttons that are also really wireless and just screwed to the wall, in that case there might be batteries to replace. – Tyson May 28 '16 at 0:00

I'd start by opening up the opener, and making sure the wires for the switch are securely connected.

Inspecting the cable for damage, would be the next step. This would include testing the wires for continuity, to make sure there's not damage that couldn't be seen.

Check the control board in the opener for any fuses, and make sure any fuses are good.
