Do garage door openers have reset buttons?

I have a genie garage door opener that stopped working after a major power surge to my home. Is there a reset button somewhere on the unit that might have tripped that I need to reset? If not, does anyone know what might have happened?

    Most openers today do not have a reset button, They’re found occasionally on very old openers (circa 1970/80′s). The power surge probably took out the circuit board and in a Genie it’s most likely cheaper to replace the opener.

    first see if there is power there. plug anything else in it and see. if it is there then look the motor over for a button but it may be toast. if no power look for the problem in a GFI outlet in the garage or a circuit breaker tripped.

    Most today have no reset. It is built into the motor windings. I have never seen or heard of a bad one. Your circuit board is probably ruined. You might check the step down transformer inside but other than that you are going to need a new board. Please list the model and I can tell you where to get a new one. Make really sure you have power at the outlet on the ceiling.

    found this post at this website.
