A garage door opener is a motorized device that opens and closes garage doors controlled by switches on the garage wall. Most garage door openers also come with a remote. The remote can be placed in the car or carried by the owner and can be used to open and close the door from a short distance. Are you having issues with your garage remote? Do you think it needs to be replaced? Before you spend money to replace the remote, the keypad, or other wireless access you should try and figure out what is causing the problem.
Garage Door Remote Not Working Due to Dying Battery
Just because your garage door remote isn’t work doesn’t mean you need a new one. Try and trace the root of the problem before you get a new one that may just have the same problem. 8 out of 10 times when your garage door remote isn’t working is due to a dead battery. Try to replace the battery and then try using the remote again. If it works, you’ve solved the problem.
Garage Door Receiver Not Paired Correctly
A second reason you may be having problems is that your remote is not paired correctly with your doors. This can also be an easy fix that takes about 10 minutes or less. You simply need to get both units in sync with each other. All you have to do is press the LEARN button on the opener at the same time as you press the remote control. You will then see an indication from the LED lights that will tell you the door is now paired with the remote. Test it after you are done to make sure it worked.
Garage Door Remote Compatibility
A third reason you may be having problems is because the remote may not be compatible with the garage door you have. Universal remotes that you can purchase may not be compatible with your garage door. You can call your brand’s customer service number, refer to the owner’s manual or check online to find out. You can also call garage door professionals for help. There are some garage doors that will only work with remotes and keypads that are the same brand. Using two different brands or universal remotes will just not work in some cases. Your garage door may be one of them.
Older types of garage doors may need to have the DIP switches set to the same frequency and may just fox your problem-
