6 Easy Steps On What To Do When your Garage Door Stop Working (INFOGRAPHIC)

1. Check That It’s An Issue With The Garage Door Remote

The first step in fixing your garage door should be identifying where the problem is. If pressing the button on your remote doesn’t work, then the first thing you should do is press the hardwired button on the wall. If it still doesn’t work, you might have a more serious problem and should contact us straight away.

2. Check The Batteries

Once your sure that it’s just an issue with your garage door opener remote, then the first thing you should check is the batteries.

3. Check The Battery Contacts

If replacing the batteries doesn’t work, then you might have issues with your battery contacts.
Dirty, worn or wet contacts inside of the battery case can mean the electrical current from the batteries won’t reach the circuit board inside of the remote.

4. Clean The Eyes

Believe it or not your garage door system has eyes. This refers to the plastic covering on the infrared unit on both the remote and the receiving unit that allows the signal to transmit.

5. Restart The System

Garage door remote controls and receivers are just small computers, and much like any computer sometimes you need to deploy the old “turn it off and turn it on again” technique to get things working again.

6. Still No Luck?

Tried all of this and your garage door remote still not working?
