Remote issues? With a little troubleshooting you can usually avoid a costly service call and get your garage door opener working again in no time. Follow the steps below to troubleshoot your remote.
- Check the remote batteries and change if needed. To do this, open your case (there may be screws to remove first), then remove the old battery. Insert the replacement positive side up (+) and replace the cover.
- If still not working, check to see if your garage is locked. Some garages have a blinking light on the door control panel (if the light is blinking, push the LOCK button to turn off the lock feature)
- If that doesn’t work, try reprogramming your remote control and keypad.
- Check your remote’s LED light compatibility. Some LED lights cause radio frequency interference, which will not allow the remote to open/close the door.
- If that doesn’t help, there is potentially a short in the door control panel or receiver board. For this matter, it’s best to contact a professionally trained technician.
If your troubleshooting efforts don’t seem to work, contact an experienced garage door technician to look into your issue.
