Changing the Batteries on my Door Opener Remote Doesn’t Help
It might just be the oldest trick in the book, but there is a reason why it is still the one we always mention on the phone! We couldn’t count the times we have received a call for a ‘broken remote garage opening system’ only to be able to fix it then and there on the phone! In order to save everyone time and money, we always ask the customer if they have tried changing the batteries in the remote control or clicker. 8 times out of ten this works, and everyone is happy with the outcome of money and time saved!
What about the other 2 out of 10 situations, where changing the batteries does not make any difference at all? Then we recommend a couple of things: First, there are a few more really simple checks you can make yourself, which we have covered in an earlier blog in regard to a garage door not closing in much more detail. But should none of these simple checks work then it could be a more mechanical issue and then it really is time to call a professional garage door technician out.
Remember the last thing you want to do is poke around trying to find the problem yourself - More than likely you are just going to exacerbate the issue, or even cause some different damage in your search.
