Garage Remote Control Repair

Garage remote controls can be just as finicky as opener systems. Even a small problem with your remote can lead to a frustrating afternoon of troubleshooting. Luckily, we’re here to help! Before reaching out to us to schedule garage door opener repair in Vancouver, WA, try these quick DIY garage remote control repair tips:

  • Double-check the lock. Some opener systems feature an extra interior garage lock that will override remote operation. Make sure that no locks are engaged, then try the remote button again.
  • Change the batteries. Your garage door opener won’t work if your remote batteries are dead or corroded. Check the battery compartment of your remote and swap out those old, overworked batteries for fresh new ones.
  • Reset the system. Find instructions in your owner’s manual or search the Internet for reset instructions for your specific model, then reset the system and test your door again.

Is your remote still not doing anything? Don’t sweat it. Just give us a call, and our residential garage door repair experts will be there quickly.

The Most Common Garage Door Opener Problems

We’ve completed every type of garage door opener repair in Vancouver, WA, imaginable, but some problems happen more than others. Here are six common opener issues we see on a daily basis:

  • Unresponsive openers. If your wall switch, remote, or other “opener button” isn’t operational, you won’t be able to use the door properly and safely.
  • Garage door not opening or closing. A stuck door can spell big trouble! Call our experts right away if your door doesn’t seem to be “listening.”
  • Motor issues. If your opener motor runs but the door doesn’t open, or you hear unusual sounds coming from the motor, your system definitely needs service.
  • Photo eye misalignment or failure. A garage door’s “photo eyes” are found near the ground, one on each side of the door. A laser connects to the two eyes; if that connection is broken (by a person, pet, car, etc.), the garage door opener won’t operate. We can fix this by cleaning the optics or realigning the photo eye.
  • Gear and sprocket assembly failure. In some cases, the gears that support the opener system are actually made to be broken if there is too much strain on the garage door. This protects the motor from becoming overworked.
  • Circuit board breakdown. This can happen due to power surges or just normal wear and tear. Installing a surge protector may help keep the opener’s circuit board safe during stormy weather.
