You Rely on Your Garage Door Remote and Keypad

When your garage door remote and keypad are not working, you realize how much you rely on your garage door. You open it to get the car out and open it again to park the car back in the garage. Many families use the garage door as the entry door too, so the garage door is opened when the kids need to get out of the house to walk to the bus stop and then open it again when they arrived home from school.

Families open and close the garage door at least four times a day, which conservatively means that the garage door is opened and closed 3,000 times a year. When it is not opening and closing with the remote, everyone in the household will notice. Read on for some helpful tips that may fix the problem. If you can’t fix the problem on your own, contact a professional garage door company, like Affordable Garage Door, Inc. for repair.

Why Doesn’t My Garage Door Remote Work?

When your garage door remote or keypad stops working, there are a few fixes that you can do to see if you can get the remote operational again. You can expect your garage door opener to last about ten to 15 years if you take care of it. Before you do anything, check the battery first. It may be that simple! Here are a few other tips to do when the remote is inoperative:

  • Check the power source. Just like you do with your computer, make sure the motor unit is plugged into the electrical socket. If it is, then check your circuit breaker system in the house and make sure the circuit did not trip. If this is not the issue, the motor for the remote control may have burned out, and for this issue, you will need to call the professionals at a garage door repair for assistance.
  • Move closer to the antenna. Sometimes the remote won’t work because you are too far away from the antenna. Then be sure to check the antenna to ensure it is not damaged.
  • Reprogram the Remote and Keypad. Find the instructions and see what you need to do to reprogram the remote and keypad.

Hopefully, these tips will make your garage door remote operational again. If not, contact the professionals at Affordable Garage Door, Inc. in Lowell.
