It happens all too often and we always get a call. Sometimes it is a serious issue – bad garage door opener – broken springs etc. BUT… sometimes it’s just your remote… and even simpler… how far away from the door you are when you hit the button.
Here’s a note on the range of your remote control. The distance at which your remote control is effective can change from day to day. Its’ current battery level, radio interference, and believe it or not, even the weather, can contribute to how far away you need to be from your garage door opener before the remote will work.
Try getting out of your vehicle with the remote and get as close to the door as you can while pressing the button. If the problem turns out to be a simple range issue, try again tomorrow, things may change. If the problem doesn’t go away, it may mean your battery is low or needs replacing. Most garage door remotes now use batteries like you’d find in a watch… Just pop open the remote and take the battery to the store. It’s a fast and easy fix and much less expensive than having us come out.
