Tale from the Twilight Zone:
I'm visiting my parents this week for the Thanksgiving holiday. They ask me about an issue they are having with their overhead door opener.
Seems whenever there is a brief power failure (less than one second), the operator opens the door when power is restored. The power is out so briefly that they usually don't need to reset their electronic clocks, so it's a very short outage. However, the door opener, for some strange reason, opens the door.
Obviously, this is a security issue. To mitigate the problem, they climb up on a ladder and unplug the unit if they're going to be gone for any length of time. This, then, becomes a real hassle given their ages (hint: I remember JFK!), constantly open & close the door, climbing ladder and plugging and unplugging.......
The operator is a Overhead Door Legacy model # 496CD/B. Anyone else hear of this problem, and have any solution?
I plan on contacting Overhead Door Monday about this, but I thought I'd post it here to see if I can find a solution.
I'd call in a licensed electrician, those guys can fix anything. arty:
