How does a Garage Door Opener Work?
A Garage Door Opener is a small box about the size of a deck of cards that sits on the wall next to your garage door. The opener controls the motors that open and close your garage door. There are two remotes for a typical garage door opener. One remote controls the opener from inside your house, and the other remote controls the opener from outside your house.
What Should I Do if It Doesn’t Work?
There are a few things you can do if your Craftsman garage door opener remote doesn’t work. First, check to make sure that the battery is fully charged. Next, try resetting the door opener by pushing and holding down the reset button for about 30 seconds. If that still doesn’t work, you can try to reset the door opener using a universal remote.
