Sears garage door remotes

I've installed four garage door openers in a steel building and the range of the remotes is very short. I have to stand directly in front of the doors to open them. My question is; Is there any way to extend the range of the remotes since the steel building is blocking the signal.

There is an antenna extender kit available for your opener. The part number is 41A3504 and should be available from any good door opener company that handles Liftmaster or Chamberlain. It should come with instructions.

The key pad will close the garage door but it will not open the garage door.


If the keypad is the only remote unit you have that has short range then it is failing. The lack of signal strength prevents the signal from reaching the receiver when the door is closed. A replacement is the only cure.

My Craftsman remote won't close my garage door


If the remote opens and closes while inside the garage but not outside , there are a few things it could be. Assuming it was working fine before..
1. weak battery in remote.
2. remote itself could be bad. (unless you have more than 1 remote acting the same)
3. Logic board in opener is going bad causing limited range.Is the wire that hangs down from the opener straightened out? That is your remote antenna.Some people have coiled or even cut it off..reducing range.
4. Less likely but this can happen- interference from another electronic device, wireless routers, cell phone, new appliances etc.. can reduce remote range. Any new electronics recently purchased?

Brand new craftsman remotes don't work when garage is closed


Yes, it seems to be a frequency issue.  Craftsman usually guarantees 50 foot range on your remotes.  Contact Craftsman, they will probably work with you to solve the problem.

Lack of range on Garage door remote


There is a short wire hanging down from the back of the opening motor -- pull this down as far as you can and bend it so it is pointing toward the garage door. This wire acts like an antenae.
