How to Fix an Overhead Garage Gate’s Remote Control

11/04/2013 Back To Blog

Among the different residential gate openers today, overhead garage doors or gates are preferred by many homeowners, because they offer convenience, and ease of use (as well as maintenance). Most of the overhead gates sold in hardware stores today are automated, and these can easily be opened or closed using a hand-held remote control. However, like other driveway openers, automated overhead gates also encounter a few technical glitches, and among these glitches include the failure of the remote control to properly work. Here’s how to troubleshoot the overhead gate remote control. 

Remove the Battery

The first electric gate repair step would be to remove the batteries from the remote’s compartment, and rub the contacts on the end of the battery using a rough cloth, to check if it still has adequate power left. You could also dip a cotton swab in distilled alcohol, and then rub it on the two contacts. Next, reinsert the batteries, close the lid, and reattach any screws on the battery enclosure. Test if the battery is now working. 

How to Replace a Busted Gate Remote Control

If the overhead garage door’s remote already needs replacement, here’s what to do. First determine the brand or product name of the gate or garage remote. Take a close look at the remote’s name, serial number as well as refer to the owner’s manual. Once you’ve determined the remote’s brand name and make, you can now buy it in the nearest hardware or home improvement store. The next step would be to program the remote control, but the process could vary depending on the model and manufacturer. Once the remote’s already programmed, put it in your car and try testing if it already works. 

When buying overhead garage remote programs, make sure you avoid purchasing off-brand or generic products, and make sure you stick to brands that have an OEM model.  But if your remote control was stolen, immediately re-program or change the codes on the existing remote control system, to prevent thieves from entering your home.
