How do I increase the range for the remote. Used to be ok but now only works through the garage window. Have tried replacing the batteries


There could be several causes for your issues.
If you have a FIOS box in the garage make sure that it is closed and sealed.
Make sure that there is on coax cable close to the garage door opener motor in the attic.
Could be a neighbor installed something that is causing you to loose distance.

Garage door opener remote does'nt work when the garage door is shut


Probably you have a weak battery in your remote transmitter. When the garage door is closed it requires a stronger signal. Open the remote and replace the battery.

Remote does not work unless I am in the garage. Outside the door it will not work.


hello emar... check to be sure that the little wire antenna is hanging down from the back of the garage door opener motor. Then check it. If it still won't work from outside, install new batteries.

If that doesn't do it, remove the new batteries and use the eraser end of a common pencil to clean the battery contacts inside the remote. then reinstall the new batteries and try it again.

My garage opener remote on my 2003 santa fe just stopped working. How can I fix it?


There is a battery in the remote.If the battery gets old the remote will stop working.Replace the battery and check.Also if your battery is new but still the problem is there then,try to open the garage door by keeping less distance between remote as well as the garage door.Also there is a sensor in the garage door.If that sensor is not functioning then this can be one issue.In some cases the internal remote circuit gets short,in that case the remote needs replacement.But does the garage door sensor light shows any sign of getting connection from remote when you press the remote button.Open the door and try to close the door with remote and check.As per the problem,in most cases its weak battery related problem,and replacing the battery solves the problem.You can try all the possibilities and see which one helps.Thanks.Helpmech.

Raynor garage opener-remote only works close up sometimes


check to seee if the little wire that hangs out of the operator is hanging out. This wire is the ant. if this is not the problem replace the 12volt battery you can buy them anywhere. make sure you didn't cut off the ant. wire (I have seen customers cut thios wire thinking its an extra and not needed or place the wire inside the box very little signal that way have to be very close)

Receiver


COULD BE A WEAK REMOTE BATTERY A BAD REMOTE OR A BAD RECEIVER.
YOU CAN BUY AN EXTERNAL UNIVERSAL RECEIVER. THAT CAN BE MOUNTED CLOSER TO THE DOOR AND IS CHEAPER THAN REPLACING THE CIRCUIT BOARD.
BUT REMEMBER, I HAVE SEEN A RV POWER INVERTER PARKED NEXT TO THE GARAGE STOP A NEW OPENER FROM WORKING AT A DISTANCE OF 5 FEET.
SO I ALWAYS SUGGEST TURNING OFF POWER TO EVERYTHING YOU CAN JUST AS A TEST.
HOPE THIS HELPS
