A remote-controlled garage door opener is one of the devices that has made our lives easier. No longer, you need to handle the heavy garage door on your own. The remote control sends infrared signals to the receiver to operate your door. If your remote control is unable to transmit signals, you will not be able to open and close your overhead door.
Thus, due to some common issues, your garage remote refuses to work on your commands. Here are some reasons along with accurate solutions to handle your garage door remote.
- Check The Batteries
Dead batteries cause for remote not working. First of all, you should check the batteries and make sure to use quality batteries to put in your remote.
- Inspect Battery Contacts
The dirty and wet contacts inside the battery case may stop the electrical current of the batteries to reach the circuit boards. So, if the contacts seem wet, discolored or pitted then dry them before operating your garage door remote.
- Reprogram The Garage Remote Key
Sometimes your garage door remote may need to be reprogrammed. You can check your remote’s user manual to reprogram it. If you are unable to reset your remote system, then contact professionals for better services.
