If your entry pad is broken or malfunctioning, though, you have less convenient and secure access to your home. Fortunately, with a few troubleshooting techniques or a quick call to your local garage door repair experts at American Overhead Doors, Inc., you can easily restore the functionality of your keypad.
Is Your Keyless Garage Door Opener Not Working?
As technology evolves, garage door keyless entry pads have become a household necessity. If your entry pad has suddenly stopped working, the best solution is to try to restore functionality or determine if it’s time to replace the entire unit.
These are some of the common causes for entry pad malfunctions:
- Old or Dead Battery: Most garage door keyless pads require a battery to operate. If your entry pad has suddenly stopped working, then the fastest and easiest way to try restoring functionality is by replacing the old battery with a fresh one.
- Programming Issue: If the code works to close the door, but won’t open it, then there’s likely a key code malfunction. By reprogramming the keyless pad using the opener, you can restore reliable operations. Each type of entry pad has a different reprogramming process, but using the opener’s learn button is the most common method.
- Dated Keypad Technology: Aging technology along with prolonged exposure to harsh outdoor elements can diminish the quality of your entry pad. Keypads that are approximately 10 years old may be nearing the end of their lifespan. The best solution for an aging, malfunctioning entry pad is to contact a garage door specialist to evaluate the condition of your keypad and determine if repair or replacement is the best solution.
