My Wayne Dalton Garage Remote Is Not Working

My Wayne Dalton Garage Remote Is Not Working

The Wayne-Dalton company makes automatic garage door openers that are activated by a remote control synced to a receiver connected to the garage door’s motor. There are a number of reasons why the keychain-sized Wayne-Dalton garage door remote will suddenly cease to function. You can troubleshoot the Wayne-Dalton garage door remote to determine what is causing it to fail. You’ll need a few supplies and tools to do the job yourself. Does this Spark an idea?

Instructions

1. Replace a dead battery by putting the Wayne-Dalton remote face down on a towel. Insert the tip of a flat-edged jeweler’s screwdriver into the seam between the front and back sections of the remote on the left upper edge. Push the tip into the seam. Pull the tip down the length of the remote, then pull the tip across the width of the remote to the right side. Pull the tip up the length of the remote to the upper right edge, then push the tip across the width of the remote to the upper left edge. Pull the back case off with your fingers. Insert the tip of the screwdriver beneath the button battery inside the front section of the remote. Lift up on the tip to loosen the battery. Grip the edge of the battery with tweezers and pull it out of the battery slot. Grip the edge of a replacement battery with the tweezers, the same positive or negative side up as that of the original battery. Slide the replacement battery into the battery slot. Place the back section of the remote on the front section. Push down on the sides, tip and bottom of the back section to seat it to the front section.

2. Repair stuck buttons on the remote by spraying them with electrical cleaning spray by first separating the front section of the Wayne-Dalton keychain-sized remote from the back section. Remove the screws from around the circuit board inside the front section with a Phillips jeweler’s screwdriver. Grip an edge of the circuit board with tweezers and pull it out of the front section. Turn the circuit board over and place it alongside the front section. Shake the electrical cleaning spray can for five seconds. Aim the nozzle on the can at the circuit board. Spray the circuit board with electrical cleaning spray for three seconds. Spray the front section of the remote with electrical cleaning spray for three seconds. Return the circuit board to its original position inside the front case. Reattach the screws. Place the back section of the remote back on the front section and press down on the sides to reengage the plastic clips. Wipe the Wayne-Dalton keychain-sized remote with a paper towel to remove any excess electrical cleaning spray.

3. Reinitialize the communication between the wireless receiver on the garage door opener and the remote by first pulling the “Emergency Release” lever on the motor’s bracket to the “locked” position. Press the “Program” labeled button next to the lever and hold it in for a second before releasing it. Repeat this procedure if a beep isn’t heard or a LED light doesn’t illuminate, depending on the model. Press and hold one of the buttons on the remote for five seconds before releasing it — if the button on the remote isn’t pressed within 30 seconds of the beep or LED illuminating, you will have to start the procedure all over again. Release the “Emergency release” lever.
