garage door opener problems and solutions

➡ Issue:The wall switch will open the garage but the remote won’t respond.

If you try to open your garage with the remote control and it’s not responding, you’re most likely to be dealing with a battery issue.

Solution: try to change the remote’s batteries and then try to open the garage door again. If it doesn’t work, you might be out of range – try to move closer to the garage door and make sure that the antenna on the garage door motor is hanging downwards. If none of these tips work, try reprogramming your remote or get a new remote control.

➡ Issue: The garage door goes up but comes down only when you press the wall switch.

You’re most likely to be dealing with a sensor issue.

Solution: try to check if the safety sensors are in the correct alignment. Make sure that the light on each sensor is lit up and there is nothing between the two sensors. If there is no light at all, you might need to replace your sensors.

➡ Issue: Noisy garage door opener.

While repairs are necessary to ensure your garage door’s optimum performance, there are cases that it would be better to have it replaced. Keep in mind that overuse, in particular, is a common reason for replacing garage door openers. Apparently, though, there are other reasons why you should invest in a new remote opener.

  • Some Doors are Considered Illegal – In 1993, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) passed a law that would require all garage door openers built after January 1, 1991, to follow certain legislative guidelines. The legislation was passed in response to the massive volume of deaths and injuries that automatic garage door openers caused to individuals and even pets.
  • Old is Old – If your openers are already old, they simply do not have the same security protocol enabled that keep the entire garage system safe. It puts you, your family, and your home at great vulnerability, as it gives access to unwanted intruders and possibly worse.
  • Manual Operation – It is worth noting that older garage door openers cannot be operated manually, such as using a key. Nowadays, if you tend to leave home and ask a house-sitter or someone to watch, you can easily install a keypad that will only need an access code for entry. This code can then be given to people you trust. In a sense, this process is much easier compared to copying a key.
