Troubleshooting a Broken Garage Door Opener

So the opener on your garage door doesn’t work with either the remote or keypad? Bummer. There are several reasons why. Start by moving closer to the door. Your antenna could be out of range. It’s also possible your antenna is bent, damaged or missing. Does the wall switch work? If so, then you’ve probably got a dead battery in either the remote or keypad. If the wall switch doesn’t work, there’s a good chance your power is disrupted. The unit might be unplugged. It’s also possible you’ve blown a fuse. If other outlets in the garage or house aren’t working, then this is almost certainly the case. Check the circuit breaker box for any flipped switches. If the garage door opens but the motor doesn’t stop running, then the up-limit switch. This can happen if you’ve just installed the opener recently.
