We all know how convenient it is to have a garage door opener Nashville, TN. Not only does it help keep us safe when we enter or exit our garage, it keeps us dry when it’s raining, and warm or cool depending on the season. But what happens when that garage door opener stops working? Here are some of the steps you need to take to reprogram your opener so that you can keep the convenience of having it in the car with you.

Do you have the owner’s manual?

First, you will need to find out if you still have the owner’s manual. Honestly, all openers are a little different so if you still have the manual, fixing it will be a piece of cake. However, if you don’t, you can still get the remote reprogrammed.

What you need to know

Second, if you don’t have your manual, the first thing you will want to do is gather the information needed to be able to contact the company for directions. Start by going online to the manufacturer of the opener. Some manufacturers may have information right on their website to help you out. If not, get the “contact us” phone number. When you call, you will most likely need the numbers that are on the back of the ceiling mount portion of the garage door opener. These numbers should include things like model number, serial number, and probably a code that is unique to your own garage opener. This will help the company identify your opener, which in turn will allow them to assist you with the proper information to reprogram your remote.

In addition to the information listed about your garage opener in Nashville, you will also need information about your car. This will include things like the make, model and year. You may also need to have access to your automobile owners or instruction manual. You should have all of this information gathered prior to making the phone call to the manufacturer. You will also want to have a pen or pencil and paper ready for any notes or information you need to write down when talking with the customer service representative.

What to expect when you call customer service

Third, call the company and inform the customer service representative of the problem you are having with programming your remote. You will need to provide them with the information that you gathered in step two so that they can look up your specific opener. They will provide you with directions that you will need to follow completely for reprogramming your remote. Many times you will be able to reprogram the remote over the phone with the assistance of a customer service representative. The company may also choose to send you the written directions via postal mail or via email in PDF form. It would be wise for you to request the written information so that you will have it on hand should this ever happen again. Depending on the manufacturer, this service to assist with reprogramming may or may not have a fee.
