Your garage door remote is a device that you use to manually signal your garage door to work and raise or lower the door. If you garage door abruptly stops working, then you could be encountering a few technical glitches. The first and simplest fix is to check your remote’s batteries. Because you use your remote on a daily basis, the batteries can drain very quickly so changing them can be a big help. Another issue that can cause your garage door remote to malfunction is if the safety eyes on the bottom of the door are not aligned properly.
The safety eyes help to make sure that the remote can safely turn on and activate the garage door opener. If the safety eyes are not lined up properly then the opener cannot turn on. You should go to the bottom of your garage door and look for the safety photo eyes. If the eyes are not sending and receiving information, then chances are the alignment needs to be adjusted. You should try to make sure that you can make an invisible line between the two and that the lights are working correctly. The LED lights show if they are functioning properly or not.
