Why is My Garage Door Remote Not Working?

Your home’s garage door is likely the most frequently used entrance, and operating it with a remote makes life much easier. But it is frustrating to come home after a hectic day in the office to notice that the door opener remote isn’t working.

If you're in such a situation, don't try forcing the door to open, rather follow the troubleshooting tips shared in this article. In case you have garage door problems that indicate a pressing repair need, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our garage door technicians are ready to take on just about any garage door issue.

Check the Batteries and Replace Them

The conventional remote controls use a 3-volt battery which is renowned for its long-lasting abilities but it can get depleted with time.

The fastest way to know if the battery is dead is to check the indicator light. If it looks dimmer or doesn’t blink at all, then the battery is dead. To be sure, remove the screws and check the battery contacts whether they are wet or worn out.

 You can buy the battery at a nearby store if you don’t have a reserve. Then reassemble the remote.

The LED Light Bulb May Have Disrupted the Signal to the Opener

Depending on the configuration of the remote, the LED lights may cause interference with garage door openers. This is because garage door openers operate by using radio waves, which can interfere with the Led lights to disrupt the operation of the opener.

However, before assuming that there is an interference, you need to reprogram the remote. If the problem isn’t resolved then you can get in contact with a professional from Bob's Advance Garage Doors.

Programming Issues

Sometimes the remote may need to be reprogrammed after replacing the battery. But that’s not a hard nut to crack. Get the owner's manual and follow the programming steps to get your garage door opener working again. Or you can access the manufacturer’s website for instructions on how to reprogram the remote.

A Blown Ground Fault Interpreter (GFI)

A bad Ground Fault Interpreter (GFI) may affect one or more electrical systems including the opener of the garage door. It may trip a circuit breaker or blow a fuse because of a spark, wrong wiring, or a damaged home appliance.

Though this may be fixed by pressing the reset button on the wall outlet that corresponds with your garage door. Nevertheless, if this problem persists, you have to call a pro to check out the system.

Check if the lock Button is Engaged

Sometimes, the lock button on your garage door’s wall may be engaged. Most times, the engagement of the lock button is not intentional. This may be done by cleaners while performing their normal duties. Check out the button and disengage the door and then check if everything is working correctly.

If the Garage Door Remote is Still Not Working, then call the professionals at Bob's Advance Garage Doors.

In case you have followed all the tips above and the garage door doesn't open, then it might be an advanced issue that needs the knowledge and experience of a professional. Our garage door repair technicians will arrive at your location to getting things back up and running at affordable rates.
