Finding the right remote for your garage door opener can be confusing. The first step in finding your correct remote is to search for your opener model in the upper left hand search bar of this website. The results should show compatible models for your opener. Compatibility information is also available on each product page. Links to manufacturers can also be found on our links page. To help ensure that you make the correct decision, we offer free technical support on all products that we sell. Questions can be directed to our free contact form or we can be reached by phone at (210) 881-9284.
On average, a visor or key-chain remote has a distance of about 3-5 car lengths. If your remote is not working under this distance, here are some things that you can try:
- Insert a new battery into your remote control. A weak battery is the leading cause of poor signal reach in your garage door opener remote.
- Make sure that there is nothing between the remote and the receiver. Often, the signal will lose strength when passing through the body of a car.
- Clear the receiver and then reset your remote control. This information is usually available in the product manual which can be found on the product pages or via the manufacturer’s website.
- Try removing your pushbutton wires from your garage door motor to see if your wireless range improves. Occasionally, interference from power lines will cause this issue.
- Interference might also come from television or CCTV cable, cable amplifiers, fluorescent lights, surge protectors, battery charging units, and anything that uses a timer such as sprinkler systems, alarm systems, and lights.
- If none of the above reccomendations work, you might have a dead remote. We offer a wide selection of replacement remotes. If you can not find the remote that you are looking for, we will be happy to special order it for you.
When I try to close my garage door, the garage door opener lights blink and the door does not close. How do I fix this?This problem could be caused by a few different things. The first thing to do is to check that nothing is blocking the safety beam. This is the device that is on the inside bottom edges of your garage door frame. The safety beams, or photo eyes, ensure that the garage door does not accidentally close on someone or something by keeping the garage door from operating when there is an object between these two sensors. If that is not the case, the lock feature of your garage door opener might be activated. This feature is usually deactivated via the button on the wall panel with a padlock symbol. It is a security feature designed to keep the garage door from opening via remote and is useful for extra security when going to sleep or when going on vacation. Steps in deactivating this feature will vary by manufacturer. Manufacturer’s websites for your opener can be found on our resources page.
- For a receiver or existing remote that has 8 switches numbered 1-8, match switches 1-8 and move switch number 9 to the middle.
- For a receiver or existing remote that has 8 switches numbered 2-9, match switches 2-9 in the new remote and move switch 1 to the middle.
- For old three button remotes that use the large button to open the door, set switch number 1 to the negative setting.
- If you do not have another remote control and you have a smart/learn button on your garage door opener, set the switches to random positions and press and hold the button on the opener and the remote simultaneously. This should program your new remote with your opener.
Some remotes have special enhanced security features such as the CLIKcard, Autokey, and Passport line of remotes. The facility code of a remote is a two digit number found on the back of the remote. This number is usually just after the letters FC. A remote of a different facility code than the receiver will not work. In most access systems that employ facility codes, there will also be a specified range of remotes that will work. Each remote that uses this system has a unique number attached to it. This allows a single lost or stolen remote to be deactivated by removing just that number from the system. All bulk remotes shipped by TD Supplies with ranges are shipped block coded. This means that all remotes are shipped with sequential range numbers. This makes it easy to program these remotes into your system as you only need to enter the first and last range into the system to activate the entire batch, eliminating the need to program each remote individually.
