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.

Only the multi function control panel opens/closes garage door. Remotes and keyless entry do not work.


There's a lot of things that can cause range issues. Wireless routers to close to the garage. Bad LED or CFL bulbs. Faulty circuit board. A faulty motion detector on a light. Sometimes if you turn all of the breakers off except to the garage you can isolate it. If that doesn't help call a garage door company to come out.

This is most likely caused by radio interference. Try to re-learn the remotes to see if it will correct the problem.

Yes, replace the remote battery. It is losing power, thus working at short range only. Loss of range is the key indicator for a remote battery going out.

sounds like condensation in the receiver window of the garage unit rather than the remotes. Try running a hair dryer over the area where the signal is received to get rid of any moisture and try using the remote from across the road or at the drive entrance.to check your success

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.
