The common issue of garage door remote control
The issue mentioned above is only one of the many problems that can be found when a garage door opener remote starts to malfunction. There are still many other issues that commonly affect residential garage doors. Here’s a list of the common issues pertaining to the garage door remote control.
- The batteries drained fast – One of the most common issues which is very easy to detect is whether the battery is drained or dead. For a common garage door remote, a LED signal will turn on every time the button on the remote is pressed. Therefore, if no light signal is detected it may very well be caused by the batteries. You can try replacing them to see if this fixes the problem. If not, call us for some detailed checking.
- Disrupted signal – A garage door remote sends a signal wirelessly to the garage door opener receiver board to initiate the opening sequence. If that this signal disrupted, there will be no command sent to the receiver board and the door will not open. This could be caused if the remote is perceived to be out of range or the antennae is damaged. If it’s the latter, you would need the help of professional garage door remote control service to fix it but if it’s the former you could try standing close to the receiver and try it again first.
- The remote needs to be reprogrammed – Another issue that could cause the remote-control signal to be disrupted is due to an error in the remote memory system. When this happens, reprogramming is necessary to handle this situation. However, like many other electronic systems, the reprogramming process could be confusing because experience and analysis are needed to do the sequence correctly. Please call a professional to complete the process for you.
