The following tips can fix some common problems in your Chamberlain garage door opener remote:

  • Make sure your antenna is straight and pointing down toward the floor.
  • Try a fresh battery in your remote control. A weak battery will transmit a weak signal, which produces poor range.
  • Clear out the receiver and reprogram the remote control(s). Erase all codes in the receiver by holding the “Smart/Learn” button for 6 seconds. The adjacent LED will go out. Reprogram your remote to the opener. To do this, simply press and hold your remote control button, push and release the smart/learn button. The opener light bulb should go on and off indicating the code is learned. Release the remote push button and test the remote to see if your range improved.
  • If your door always closes, but you have to get closer to the door to make it open, your signal might be blocked by your door. Occasionally steel doors will act as a shield and the remote signal has difficulty transmitting through the door. For this scenario, adding a co-axial antenna to your opener and relocating the antenna outside should improve your range. Contact your local LiftMaster Authorized Dealer for more information on our extension kit.
  • Disconnect your pushbutton wires from the overhead motor unit and test your remote control. If your range improves, try relocating your pushbutton wires. If your pushbutton wires are near electrical lines, they may cause RF or noise. Moving the wires away from the source may help.
  • Do you have more than one remote control? If so, is the problem persistent in all remotes, or just one? If the problem is with only one, change the battery and reprogram. If no improvement is noted, replace the remote control.

You have two or more garage door openers? If so, is the range problem evident in one unit only and not the other? If so, unplug the opener that is working fine, and then test the range on the opener you have been having problems with. If improvement is noted, call your local LiftMaster Authorized Dealer.

Various objects will occasionally cause interference. Some items that have been known to cause interference are TV cable, cable amplifiers, surge protectors, fluorescent lights, battery charging devices such as power tools & golf carts, and anything that utilizes a timer such as sprinkler systems, lights, and alarm systems. If you have any of these devices, you can unplug or disable the device temporarily to see if your range improves.
