Common Garage Door Remote Questions
My garage door starts to close, but then reverses

Check around your sensor and under the door to make sure there isn’t anything in the way.

First, check to see if your remote is working properly. If it is, there may be a connection issue between your button and your garage door.

First, Try These Easy DIY Fixes
There are a few garage door remote issues that homeowners can easily and safely fix themselves. Before you get stressed about the possibility of extensive repairs, check to make sure you aren’t dealing with one of these common problems.
Drained Batteries – This is one of the most likely reasons your garage door remote has stopped working, and luckily, it’s also the easiest to fix! Try replacing the remote’s batteries to see if that gets it working again.
A Locked Door – Check to see if the lock button on the wall-mounted control panel for your garage door has been activated. This is often easy to lock on accident – all you need to do is press the lock button again to disengage it.
Reprogrammed Remote – The link between your opener and remote can occasionally become broken with frequent use and require reconnection. Look up your manufacturer’s directions for reprogramming your remote.
