SOURCE: remotes quit working for garage door

I had the same problem with my Craftsman opener but different model. However to fix this I simply followed the instructions that came with the opener and reprogramed the remote to the opener. The instructions are in your owners manual and are pretty straight forward.. John

SOURCE: Remote does not open garage door

It sounds like the wall button has the lock feature engauged.

Is there a small green LED flashing inside the wall button?
Push and hold the lock button for about two seconds and the LED should stop flashing. This will unlock the garage door opener and your remotes should start working. You may have to reprogram your remotes and homelink again since you triedprograming in the lock mode.

Good luck.

SOURCE: remote missing on old dominator garage door opener

This is the most complicated way I know of coding a remote and I am a tech. who does this all the time.
Turn power off. Wait 3 sec's & turn back on. Quickly press program button on back of box twice. Lights will flash, bottom light will stay on. Press program button twice, & No. 3 light will start flashing. Press and hold your remote button until light stops flashing. Code will be accepted.

Remotes use Infrared (little bulb sticking out the end) not radio signals. You probably have problems because the setting sun is coming through the window flooding the room with heat/light. try closing the drapes.

The frequency of the garage door opener is the same as the one down the street. Is there a way to change frequency on the Lift-Master Professtional Line Garage Door opener?


This appears to be your problem.Your door sometimes is opening unexpectedly and inadvertently when a seen or unseen neighbor uses his or herremote door opener; or a neighbor wonders why his/her own door always seems to open shortly after you drive by; and you wonder if her and your remotes should not be transmitting each at its own unique frequency level. Or in the worst case, someone, possibly a prankster, possibly someone more nefarious, is driving through neighborhoods punching a remote to see if any garages respond (and if any indoor occupants respond).

Its transmission radio frequency is not what sets one garage door remote apart from any other. Instead, each door remote controller transmits in rf adigital codeinto the air near your house, and any door opener power head set to the same code recognizes the code and is commanded to energize its power head motor to raise or lower the attached door in reverse of its last most previous transport direction. The chance, probabilistically speaking, of any two near-neighboring houses' garage doors (or even a random, travelling remote) being set at the exact same code among the large number of available alternative codes is quite remote, but it can sometimes happen.

The solution is for the house owner--that is you-to change the reception code in your door opener power head unit by repositioning small selector contact switches in a code pad situated on the power head, typically behind a plate or cover of some kind--or you might have to remove the power head cover. Once found, it is fairly easy to do by setting the numbered or lettered switches to form a multi-digit code, much like a digital padlock combination except in binary or some base other than decimal. Next, record the new code, and change the code by the same means and method on all associated remote control instruments. It is not a bad idea to change garage door remote access code from time to time simply as a matter of routine garage door and door opener maintenance. Check for code switch location and setting procedure for you power head in user manual or on line. That should be the end of the problem and also discourage anyone casing your neighborhood for potential unlawful entry vulnerability.

If I have a genie pro and am trying to program a universal remote - how many times do I need to click the remote to pair it with my garage door opener?


Is the garage remote infra red or radio? Does the universal remote support both modes of operation?
If it's infra red then simply follow the programming instructions for the universal as normal. If RF then you may need another type of universal remote control that supports RF modes

Craftman 1/2 garage door. Model 13953879. RF intereference issue


Limited range of your remote controls could be related to radio frequency interference that comes from something in your home or in the surrounding environment. Certain electrical devices can radiate interference; this could be almost anything that is plugged into an electrical outlet.


Please keep in mind that the device can be brand new, or can be an item that has been in use for quite a while. Also, the item may continue to function properly as far as you are able to tell. The only problem with the item may be that it has started to broadcast the interference, with no other symptoms noted.


Some devices are more likely to generate interference than others. This includes TV cable, cable amplifiers, surge protectors, fluorescent lights, battery charging devices (power tools, golf carts, etc.), anything that utilizes a timer (sprinkler systems, lights, alarm systems, etc.), and a myriad of others. If the problem seems sporadic, we can safely assume that the device responsible for the interference is only being operated during these times. Again, please keep in mind that the age of the device does not determine if it is capable of broadcasting unwanted interference. Any electrical device can be the source of the problem.


The first step is replacing the battery in your remote. If the range on your remote does not improve, remove the wall control wires from the overhead unit. If the range does not improve you will likely need to replace the remote control. After replacing the remote, or if you have other remotes programmed in to the opener, and the range problem still exists, please proceed to the Power Down test.


Multiple garage doors:
If you have two garage door units and one is working just fine, you will need to start by unplugging the good unit. This will help determine if the unit with no range starts to function properly. If the range comes back to the bad unit then you will need to replace the logic board on the unit that was unplugged as it is emitting an RF signal that is over powering the other garage door opener. If the range does not improve after the “good” unit has been unplugged, replace the batteries and try programming some additional remotes to determine if the existing remotes are the issue. If the extra remotes do not have any range then you would need to replace the receiver logic board in the “bad” unit.


Power Down test:
To isolate potential sources of interference, turn the circuit breaker off to the garage and plug the garage door opener into an extension cord from another room. If the range improves, then the interference is coming from a device in the garage. If no improvement is seen follow the same procedure, this time turning off the circuit breakers to your home, with the exception of the garage and test the remote controls. If improvement is noted, turn the circuit breakers back on, one by one, until the range problem resurfaces. This will allow you to narrow down what room the problem device is in. You will have to go from there to isolate it further, by unplugging and re-plugging the items in that room.


If you are unable to determine any source of interference, then the receiver logic board in the overhead unit will need to be replaced.

Garage remotes and keypad don't work in the morning!


Something in the receiver portion of the logic board has become sensitive to cold. This is not uncommon in electronics. The sensors are working as they should and the wall control is hardwired and doesn't use the receiver. A new logic board is the repair. The lights are normally a simple repair. Unplug the unit and pull out on the center contact of the light sockets.

Genie remotes stopped working


The receiver can go bad and that would stop all remotes from working. The wall control would still work because it does not use the receiver.

Garage door remote control signal problem


On the rear of the motor unit just to the left of all those white wires you will find a small LED. Random flashing is normal but if it is flashing rapidly it shows some type of interference. If this isn't happening then the most common thing is a logic board going bad.

Remote only closes the garage door, will not open it


Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn’t work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.

If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.

Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.

The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.
Or a remote in someone’s purse that gets the button pushed by other stuff in the purse.

The test is to disconnect the push button wires at the power unit. If the self operation / interference stops you have located the problem. If you reconnect the wires and disconnect the wire at the wall button this will tell you if the problem is the wire or the button.

In your case the expansion of the wall in the afternoon may be enough to cause pressure on the wire to increase the problem – works in the morning but not the afternoon.

Also after you change the batteries you need to reprogram the remotes.

HOPE THIS HELPS

URC-9910 remote: The RF part for this remote stopped working.


I have the same remote as yours and occasionally the RF remote is not working due the interference signal from outside or next door at certain hours.
My suggestions:
(1) To relocate the receiver and reposition the anntena for better reception of the RF signal from the remote unit.
(2) Replaced the battery.

Hope these help!
