If you brought an automatic garage door opener, then you should expect to have optimal productivity and performance.

Make sure that the antenna is working, and try to move closer to the door, where the antenna is.

But if it still won’t work, you might need to replace your remote control. Or you can update your garage door opener to be Wi-Fi ready.

The most common reason for this is because the up-limit switch.
It may be out of adjustment and you need to realign it closer to the motor to elevate its opening.

Just like the up-limit switch, you can also adjust the down-limit using a flat head screwdriver to loosen the screw adjustment and rotate it until you have the right adjustment.
If doing this won’t make any difference, it needs to be repaired or replaced.
