Garage Door Remote Repair Ottawa, Ontario

A remote control of garage doors

The truth is that a garage door opener is an incredibly nifty invention which is going to provide you with tons of convenience. They are equipped with remote controls which are going to allow you to open them while you are still in the car, thus saving you the time and effort of having to go out, lift the door on your own, open it and repeat the entire thing once you are through. However, garage door openers are also made out of quite a few components and it’s not rare, in fact, it’s rather common, for some of these components to malfunction.

As you already know, one of the most important things that you’d be working with is the remote control. This is the device which you use to open the door from your car remotely. From time to time, it’s inevitably going to malfunction.

The reasons could be different. Not all of them would require the intervening of AMPM Ottawa Garage Door Repair™ but in some cases, you would have to rely on professionals. Without any further ado, let’s take a look.

Try This First Before Using A Local Garage Door Remote Replacement Service

1. Your batteries are dead: This is the most common reason for malfunctioning remote control. If you fail to get it to work, the first thing you should do is check the batteries. Even though it sounds pretty straightforward, you’d be surprised to see how many people actually fail in doing so.

2. Wipe off the eyes: There is an IR unit on both the receiving unit and on the car clicker. It is usually called “the eye” and it’s covered in plastic. The remote sends signals while the garage door opener receives them and opens or closes the door. With this in mind, if said plastic is covered with dust or dirt, the signal wouldn’t be transmitted properly.

3. Reset the whole system: Sometimes there might have been an outside interference with the system. Prior to calling in AMPM Ottawa Garage Door Repair™, make sure that you’ve reset the entire system and give it another go.

As you can see, some of the solutions are particularly simple and they would take you a few seconds and zero effort to fix. However, relying on professionals in case the problem is more complex is absolutely paramount. This is going to ensure that the matter is resolved up to the highest possible standards and that everything is in line.
