It’s frustrating when you can’t get your garage door to close with a remote, especially if you’re in a hurry or if it’s raining outside. Fortunately, there are some things that you can do if this happens to solve the problem quickly and easily.
Garage door not closing with remote
- If you have a remote that works fine, but your garage door and opener aren’t communicating with each other, there are a few things to check.
- First, make sure the antenna wire is connected. The antenna wire runs from a small box near the motor or track assembly all the way to your opener unit. If it’s disconnected or damaged in any way, contact an expert at 1-844-726-6270 for assistance with repairs.
- Next – check if there’s anything blocking the path between your wall switch and your opener unit (usually located behind or under one of two doors). This includes items such as furniture pieces like couches, beds and dressers; pets such as cats or dogs; children playing around near these areas; people who may have accidentally tripped over something while walking through this area…etcetera…etcetera…etcetera! Be careful not to trip over yourself while checking out all possible paths!
Tried to program but it doesn’t work
If your garage door is not closing with the remote, there are several things you can do to fix it. First, try programming the remote again. Make sure you’re using the right remote and that the batteries are fresh; otherwise, this could be a problem with the remote itself. Next, check to see if there’s an antenna connected to your motor that might have fallen off or disconnected from its wire. If so, reconnect it and test out your door again with your remote before calling for help from a professional technician.
Check to see if the antenna is disconnected from the motor
- Check to see if the antenna is disconnected from the motor.
- If it is, reconnect it and try again.
- If it isn’t, check the battery in your remote. If that’s fine, try a new remote or call a professional for help with your garage door opener.
If this is the case, reconnect it and then test the door again with your remote.
If you have a broken antenna, check to see if it is connected. If it is connected and you still cannot open the door with your remote, then your remote may be damaged. If this is the case, purchase a new remote at an electronics store or hardware store and then test it out!
Check to see if there’s anything in the path of the garage door
You can troubleshoot this issue by checking to see if there’s anything in the path of the garage door. If you have a column or electrical box blocking your garage door opener, it may not close. This can be easily remedied by removing any objects that are in the path of your garage door, and testing to see if it works. If you try using your remote and nothing happens, it could be that something is blocking your automatic sensor from working correctly.
If this does not fix your problem, try replacing all of the batteries in both remotes (if they use 1-button operation).

Things like toys, rocks and other objects can get trapped in the path of your garage door without you realizing it.
- Remove any of these objects and then test your garage door again with your remote.
- Make sure there’s nothing in the path of your garage door that could get in its way. This includes toys, rocks and other objects.
Remove any of these objects and then test your garage door again with your remote.
The first thing you should do is make sure your remote is working. If it’s not, you won’t be able to close the door with it anyway. Next, check that nothing is stuck under or behind the door. This could prevent it from closing properly and cause damage to both the garage door and its surroundings.
Next, check whether there are any objects in front of or behind your garage door that might prevent it from closing fully. For example, if there’s something blocking a sensor on the track, this will prevent proper operation of your remote control unit and can lead to issues like this one!
Lastly but by no means leastly (that was intended), ensure that everything is connected properly – such as whether cables have been plugged into sockets correctly etcetera etcetera…
Make sure nothing is in the path of your garage door.
If your garage door is not closing with your remote, make sure nothing is in the path of your garage door. Check to see if there are objects in the path of your garage door, and remove them. Next, test your remote again. You may need to replace a battery or re-position an antenna if it has moved slightly out of place.
