I have a new (less than 1 yr) GENIE screw drive garage door opener. It has worked just fine, except for today, when I decided to clean the garage & used a water hose on the floor. Some water may have gotten into one of the electrical outlets on the wall, and/or may have hit the little colored wires connected to the sensor by the door. The radio that I had plugged in quit working too. I checked the breaker box - looked fine to me, but I turned them all off and on anyway. Nothing. The overhead lite in the garage (that is not attached to opener) works, but none of the electrical outlets do. Have I really messed this up ? Can this be fixed ? Did I fry something real bad ? Can anyone HELP ME PLEASE ????

The sensors at the bottom of the door have lights on them to tell you they are working. If they are on which I assume if the garage door is working they are, then power is getting to opener. You must have tripped a breaker--recheck including transfer box if so equipped--sometimes a breaker will appear on but is not fully in off position.

Sounds to me like you got a little water into the GFCI outlet and tripped that. Find it and reset it. That SHOULD cure the problem.

Lefty is correct. Look for the little red button and push it.
