My opener appears to be operating properly BUT it is tripping a 15a
circuit breaker in my main panel. It does this when it is NOT in
operation. While trying to get this breaker to stay set I disconnected
everything on the circuit until it quit tripping. Unplugging the
garage door opener is this only thing that worked. With evrything
(including the opener) plugged in the breaker trips about every 15-20
minutes. Until it trips, everything including the opener appears to
work properly. Again, when it trips the opener is not in use. If this
makes sense to anyone I sure would appreciate some tips
Get an extension cord and run the opener to an outle, on another
circuit. See what happens.
Sometimes circuit breakers start to trip when they shouldn't.
Sometimes appliances draw more than they should. Alhtough a mere
radio receiver would have to draw an awful lot more than it should to
trip a good circuit breaker. I would think it would take less than an
amp while in stand-by. The rating on the opener plate is the max
amount of current used, when it is actually opening the door.
