Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Most garage doors for sale in the market today have a corresponding garage door remote and a spare that goes with it. You are certain that after a careful selection process, your garage doors will have a good performance and service for many years. Most garage doors and remotes from trusted manufacturers are produced with the best of standards.

What if, for some unforeseen event, your garage door remote was misplaced? Little did you know that it was just inside the pocket of your jeans and washed the following day? What a predicament! Not only are you putting your washing machine to the test, but also your dependable and most useful garage door remote. Is the remote still repairable given this situation?

What if, you accidentally dropped your garage door remote from a much higher level and shattered into pieces upon impact? Can you still repair it? These are just some of the many reasons why your garage door remote does not work. However, if your remote is handled with utmost care, knowing perfectly well that it controls the biggest moving piece of machinery in the house on top of the other entire machine operated household appliances, and it still does not work, then you have a situation!

Check first closely your garage door remote. Why is it not working? It looks good enough to function well, but does not open your garage door remotely! Frustrating it may be, you have to do something about it. The more time you waste, the more inconvenience you will encounter.

Counter-check the batteries of your garage door remote. You may be able to save some time and money before deciding to have your non-working remote, either repaired or replaced. If the problem is just the batteries, go ahead and replace them as soon as possible!

Batteries for most, garage door remotes are apparently easy to purchase. These are exactly the same ones used for our watches, AA whether 6, 9 or 12 volts is acceptable. Most batteries are lithium or alkaline, so there is no problem with getting the right one. If you want to make sure of what kind of batteries to use, buy the same ones that do not work, and bring them as sample for your next purchase.

There are times that the instructions booklet would guide you on what to use specifically as batteries for your garage door remote. Follow consistently to preserve your remote’s life and function.

If the batteries are just intact and nothing seems to be wrong, then it is time to consider, a garage door remote repair or better yet, a replacement. Check the back of your remote and jot down the model number (if there is any). You can either call your friendly customer service officer for advice or perhaps search the unit online. Hardware stores also sell brand manufactured garage door remotes as well as universal ones.

Replacement of garage door remotes can be done in two ways; either replace with the same remote from the product’s manufacturer. There are times that the model may be phased out so, another option, which can be a smart choice, though, is buying a universal garage door remote control. Either way, you get to enjoy the best of both options.
