Even though my pull cord was disengaged, I had to yank straight down while the door would have been in the down position until I heard the click, push the controller to raise the door and hold the actual release lever in the engaged position while the chain was rolling.

Control Your Opener Once your Wi-Fi garage door opener is added to your MyQ account, you can open or close your garage door by tapping the door image on your smartphone or tablet.

At first, it was a flicker that went out for just a minute or so before everything turned back on. Five minutes later, the power went out, but there was no buzz of the house turning itself back on. As time ticked by, it got awfully warm in our house. Calling ComEd — our electric company in Chicago — I found out that it would be hours before they expected to repair the blown transformer and restore power.

It was a no brainer. I called our library, confirmed they had power and air conditioning , and I packed up the wee ones. I know how to disable the automatic garage door opener. In my case, you simply pull on the red lever, which removes the motor and gear from the track.

Instead, I locked the back door to our house thank goodness for the battery operated keypad lock on our front door , and manually closed the garage door. What else can I do, right? Yes, it was definitely a good call to leave my house. The power outage was fairly widespread. It took us awhile to get to the library, but we were happy to be there and meet up with some friends who had the same idea once we finally arrived.

After a few hours at the library, I got a text from a friend letting me know power had been restored. We all cheered and jumped back in the car to return home. When we arrived, I manually opened the garage door again and drove inside.

After scooting the wee ones through the front door, I turned my attention to the garage door, knowing I wanted to reconnect it so that it would work with my opener again. I waited for it to engage the gears as it went past, smiling to myself. Calling friends to see if they or their husbands if they were around knew how to reattach the garage door opener. I could have sat down to cry. Or I could have pretended that all was well with the world and that I wanted to manually open and close the garage door for the rest of the time I lived in this house.

Or I could have waited for my husband to get home and make him fix it. I like figuring things out and fixing them. So I stood up on the door of my car to peer at the track and gear and garage door.

I should be able to visually see how it goes together and fix it that way. The first key is that you have to open your garage door. Next up, is reattaching the gear to the track. You simply pull back on the emergency cord, and it disengages. Pulling back a second time does nothing.

Neither does pulling forward. Instead, you need to pull straight down on that cord, which will reengage the door to the track.

After all, I switched out all the electric outlets, light switches, and door handles in my house when we moved in seven years ago. And I replaced my doorbell , too. Of course I can do this.

I also live in an area that rarely if ever has power problems. When my house was built they were also building Northwest Community Hospital which is only a few blocks away. This was exactly what I needed when my garage door froze this morning and I had to pull the emergency release to get my car out of the garage in time for the preschool carpool.

I know I would have figured it out on my own, but with the temperature outside being in the single digits, I was so happy to avoid spending the extra time out there doing so.

So glad to hear it. I love when Dr. I disconnected the door opener because of a power failure. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Maybe try checking that? Good luck — I wish I had a better answer!

My manual said to have the door closed before engaging. It did not work. Then I tried it your way open. This too did not work. I did however drag out the ladder and examined the contraption. I knew immediately I was going to have to pull down on the cord as I raised up on the thing-a-ma-jig the cord was tied to.

Good to know — because of course not everything will ever work the same for everyone. Glad you found a solution that worked! Feeling very accomplished too — so thank you!!!! Oh I am so glad to hear that, Wendy! Congrats on feeling accomplished and fixing it yourself. Best feeling in the world! Thank you so much for this. I am sure you saved me a service call. I opened it fully, and pulled on the red cord. Then I climbed up and pushed the lever that the cord was attached to up and it clicked!

So I held the garage door open button down for the entire cycle, and that did it! I am so thrilled to hear that, Cyndie! Comments like this absolutely make my day. Holy COW did you just save my bacon!!!

Thank you for this! I was just able to fix my garage with one hand, while holding my baby in the other, after having to leave for a few hrs because our power was out, and it was HOT today in AZ.
