Yes, all the problems quit after I disconnected the the garage door
opener. It doesn't work at all, I tried it on other outlets by
running a long extension cord from other outlets in the house.
I am planning on trying to see if the garage door company has
any ideas or if it can be fixed.
btw , the electric eye safety systems make "punch & run" a lot more
difficult and potentially more attractive to the 'dare devil' kid.
Even at my age I occasionally 'punch & run' but now it has to be
'punch, run & hop'.
I'd be interested in the cost benefit numbers for GDO safety systems
and estimates of deaths / injuries avoided.
I found the numbers at the last link below......
20 years of data 1974 thru 1995, ~85 children killed or suffered
permanent brain damage. Less than 5 per year.
Garage doors still injure a fair number despite the electric eye
Steve probably isn't too far off with his comment especially since a
significant percentage of GDO's fail to reverse properly when
encountering an obstruction.
Probably the best instruction to kids.....stay away from a moving
A foolproof GDO is nearly impossible to achieve........idiot resistant
is probably the best that can be expected.
