Garage door opener won't work unless right on top of garage

Just started a few days ago. Garage door opener won't work unless right in from of garage or on the side of the house. Strange thing is, it seems to be affecting my remote keyless entry for my car (in the garage) too! Any ideas? Craftsman remote for garage (two small black buttons, one large) and the car is 03 Chevy Cavalier

The receiver is most likely going bad. It is part of the logic board. The other possibility is if you added anything electric to the garage. Some of the strangest things will interfere with the opener. If you added anything unplug it and try. Otherwise it is the receiver.

Sounds like the receiver in your opener has quit working. Unless you break in you need to call a door technician. They can drill a hole in the door, use a special tool to pull the manual release and open the door. You should then have them install a keyed manual release if this ever happens again. They can also repair or replace your opener.

If the chain came off the bronze bushing on the gear/sprocket assembly has most likely worn out and will need to be replaced. This would also let the door close too far, hit the floor and reverse to the open position. The door also needs to be checked for balance. Weak springs can cause all this.

Sounds like you have a bad start capacitor. It sits next to the motor and is about the diameter of a silver dollar and about 5 inches long. You can get one at any good door opener service company.

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?
