However, just like all electrical and mechanical gadgets, the garage door opener eventually fails at some point. It just stops working or starts functioning poorly. And this is not something you can prevent, which means that you’ll have to find a way to fix it or rather find someone else to do it.

Lucky for you, the most common problems with these openers is that they are easy to fix. Yes, that’s right. A little troubleshooting will go a long way to help you avoid a costly service call to get your opener working perfectly in no time.

Well, let’s have a look at a few garage door opener repair tips.

When the Wall Switch Works but the Remote Doesn’t

If the wall switch works perfectly but the remote doesn’t, check the garage door opener remotes- most systems come with two remotes. It’s possible that the remotes have simply failed to operate.

First things first, check the batteries. If the light doesn’t come on when the button is pressed, the batteries could be misaligned or may have become old. If old, replace them. If the light comes on and the opener still doesn’t work, test the garage door manually with the wall control unit. If the remote still doesn’t work even after replacing the batteries, then have an expert reprogrammed it.

When the Remote Works but the Wall Switch Doesn’t

If the remote works but the wall switch doesn’t, it could be that the switch itself or the wires have become faulty. First, test the switch to determine if it’s faulty or not. Unscrew the switch from the wall and touch the wires together- if the opener works, it’s clear that the switch is bad. If the opener doesn’t run even after touching the two wires together, the wires might be faulty. Replace the switch or the wires- whichever one is faulty.

You can purchase a garage door opener replacement switch or wires at your local hardware or from reputable online stores.
