Non-Responsive Garage Door Opener

Many times, when your garage door does not open by pressing the controller’s button on the remote or wall, it is due to an issue with your power source. Check the power connection for the for the motor. If this is properly connected, inspect the fuse or circuit breaker for your garage door. Another idea is to replace the battery with a fresh, new one.

If the wall operator works, but not the remote, try replacing the remote’s batteries. Ensure that you are within the correct range to operate the auto-opener, by moving closer a few inches each time you retry the remote. Examine the antenna for the opener’s motor to ensure that it is positioned correctly. The remote may also require reprogramming. If none of these solutions resolve the problem, it might be time to install a new garage door opener.

Garage Opener Closing Failure

Any open or close failure presents a serious security risk. Inspect the path of the sensor beams to ensure that no obstacles are in the way. It could be something large or a simple spider web interrupting the path of the beam. There could also be something small on the floor triggering the reversal safety feature of your garage door. Remove all obstacles which may be hindering the operation of the door and try to close it again.

A large number of garage door openers have a flashing light alert system. Check to see, if there are flashing lights on the motor when your garage door will not close. The flash pattern is much like Morris code and the solution may be in the opener’s manual. It is also a good idea to disconnect the opener and operate your garage door manually to discover the problem.

Motor Runs Non-Stop

If the motor continues to run after door is completely open or closed, it may be an issue with your limit switch. This is an extremely important safety feature of your garage door and should be handled by a professional repairman.
