Our automatic garage door wasn’t working the other day. It was very frustrating as we are in and out of the garage 10X per day and the manual method was for some reason barely do-able. I called our local garage door expert who got out to the house same day.
He looked in our garage and in a tactful way showed me the problem—which was that the garage door cord was not plugged in. He smoothly noted, “It is likely not working because it is not plugged in but I will check some other things as well—but that is likely the problem.” I gave him a 10 for tact—and I gave myself about a 0 for intelligence.
My tip—Always check to make sure it is plugged in!
