When the wall mounted button works, but the remote does not, you may need to reprogram the remote or replace the battery. If you need to reprogram your remote, check your user manual for instructions first. The manufacturer’s website will also have directions and more information if you lost your manual. We also suggest calling the trained professionals at Southwest Garage Doors to handle any program related issues.
Most garage door openers are simple to program. Look for a button that activates a light above your garage door. However, some garage door remote issues are challenging to diagnose on your own. Sometimes, garage doors will open without the button being pressed at all and creates a safety issue if you’re not at home. The frequency that garage door remotes activate on are also the same as the United States government emergency system. Therefore, if the frequency is activated within the vicinity of your house, your garage door will also open independently. However, this does not constitute an issue with your remote.
There are a few options available to help get your garage door working. Some openers have iPhone apps that allow you to open and close the door remotely and comes in handy in case your opener isn’t working or lost.
Although it may seem obvious, many people forget that a simple battery change can be an easy fix for a garage remote. However, not all garage remote batteries are easy to fix. Call our team at Southwest Garage Doors for assistance.
