Reconnecting Your Garage Door Opener

Garage Door Opener Service

While we are certainly enjoying the warmer weather, spring and summer can bring a lot of storms. Unfortunately, after a power outage, you may have to reconnect your garage door to the opener (operator). How do you go about doing this?


How Do I Reconnect My Garage Door Opener?

You’ll have to wait until the power comes back on to reconnect the garage door opener. While we recommend professional service, generally, you should:

  • Make sure the garage door is closed.
  • Press the garage door opener button (if there are separate “open” and “close” buttons, press the “close” button).
  • Allow the opener to operate. The reconnection should be automatic, but this isn’t always the case. If the opener doesn’t automatically reconnect, pull the emergency release cord toward the door.

Please note that some openers may require different or additional steps and that it’s always recommended to use your owner’s manual for guidance and to call professionals.
