When your garage door won’t open or close on command, there may be a problem with your opener. The quick solution is to call our professional technicians to diagnose and fix the problem quickly and for a lot less than you’d expect.
How Openers Work
Most garage doors work via radio waves or Bluetooth commands. Much like tuning into a radio station, your remote control and the transmitter are both dialed into the same unique frequency. When you press the button on your remote, your door receives the signal, matches it to its own frequency and that triggers the door to open. Each individual transmitter and receiver also share its own rolling code signal that changes every time you press the button. This means that it’s very difficult for your standard house burglars to hack your remote control codes.
General Wear and Tear
If you saw the inside of your remote, you would know that it contains a miniature circuit board full of tiny wires and parts. Over time, the metal and wires can rust, break or their coating can wear down and cause electric sparks inside the remote that can cause malfunctions. If any of these parts are misaligned, broken, worn down or not connected properly, your garage door will not open and close consistently on command.
Our trained technicians can identify the exact problem and either repair or replace your remote circuit board on the spot.
Replacing the Battery Is Not So Simple
You might be surprised at how often this is the real problem with your remote control! Garage door openers usually run on special long life NiCad or NiMH batteries that can last up to 3 years. Long before their expiry date, these batteries can start having problems and you may have to push the button three or four times for them to work. They could even start to leak or may simply not recharge themselves properly. That’s why you might need a professional to replace the battery for you, make sure all the parts are in working order and you may even need the frequency codes reset.
