Garage door opener vs. Tesla coil

Original poster: otmaskin5@xxxxxxx I looks like my coil murdered my garage door opener. While running the coil in the garage, the garage door opened on it's own & then died. I now have to open & close the door manually. I was careful to position the coil far enough away so that no arcs could strike the opener or anything connected to it, and it still seems to have succumed to the coils effects somehow.

My question is, other than unplugging the opener, are there any preventative measures I can take to protect the garage door motor/receiver? Or is there just no safe way to run the coil indoors? I imagine the repairs won't be cheap so I'd like to avoid a repeat. Thx for any advice. Dennis Hopkinton MA
