A week ago a roofing crew disconnecting my main neutral wire where it enters the house in order to take a ceramic insulator off the fascia. The power was not switched off 1st in my main entrance box. Some time later I smelled an electrical wire fire type smell in one of my bedrooms. After it was reconnected I noticed my washing machine was not working and neither was my garage door opener. The washer later worked. I'm thinking it had a time delay breaker. The garage door opener still does not. The little light on the doorbell type button doesn't even light up anymore. There is power to the outlet that the opener is plugged into. Is it possible that I got a surge that killed the door opener? Any other possible explanations? It is a 10 year old genie screw-drive opener. Would it have a fuse or is maybe the main circuit board fried? Any hope of fixing the unit or need I plan a trip to the home improvement store to buy another?
Thanks in advance for any help.
