Hi there,Try operating the remote control very close to the door opener and check if it works at close range. If not, then suspect a faulty button on the remote.If it works ok at close range, try replacing the batteries in the remote in case they are weak.Also check for any possible interference nearby that could be blocking the 'open' wireless signal, e.g. a fluorescent light.
