If you have a garage door that opens and closes electronically, then check the side of your garage closest to the door for sensors that would be on both sides of the door. If the sun is still out, and shining into the sensors, that may be why. To fix this, stand outside your garage, and arrange your shadow over the sensor, then press the button. Your shadow must be over the sensor until it is finished closing, otherwise it will not work. If this doesn't work, it probably needs to be repaired.

A garage door opener works by using a small, electric motor to lift a rolling door assembly. The motor uses a chain or series of gears to control the opening and closing of the door.

Something may be preventing the garage door from closing all the way (like a skateboard, shoe, anything). If that is not the case, then you may have a problem with the hardware.

Press the button that will be used for the door opener until the light starts flashing. Then hold up your garage door opener remote and press to open garage door. It will then set.

The door assembly must be able to accommodate the apparatus of the garage door opener. Many older homes require a replacement garage door before an opener can be installed. You must also have clearance between the rolled up door and the ceiling to accommodate the door opener motor.

I am not sure what brand your garage door opener is, but perhaps you should check with the company that made your particular garage door opener to make sure to get one that will work. If that is not an option for you, I did find that Walmart offers a universal garage door opener remote. Here is a link to the product: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Chamberlain-Clicker-Universal-Garage-Door-Opener-Remote-Control/10226394

It is the opener that usually needs programming. Download the operating manual for your garage door opener. There is probably a learn switch on the opener.

If you have a garage door that has a lock engaged and you try to use an opener to get the door to go up, the motor (opener) will still try to engage and move the door into the up position. The motor and the lock will be fighting against each other and could damage your door. It could also damage the lock. If you have an opener on your garage it is always best to remove the lock. A garage door opener acts as a lock on it's own so it's unnecessary to have both.

A universal garage door opener can open almost any electronic garage door. These are perfect if the original garage door opener is lost or broken. Also one can control two different openers and frequencies at the same time.
