Garage door remote Warnings:

IF NONE OF YOUR REMOTES ARE WORKING then your garage door opener may have a problem. It is very unlikely that more than one remote control will stop working at the same time. Your motor may have a circuit board issue or a receiver issue. Contact us at Dynasty Garage Doors if you are unsure.

 DO NOT BELIEVE advertisements online which promote compatible ‘Universal Garage Door Remotes’. It is very rare that a ‘Universal Remote’ will code to your garage door opener, as each garage door motor manufacturer uses a different coding technology.

IF IN DOUBT do not purchase a remote unless you are sure it is the correct remote for your garage door motor. Contact us anytime and we will be happy to steer you in the right direction.

ORIGINAL REMOTES will last a lot longer than the cheaper after market remotes. Although slightly more expensive it is always best to stick with the manufacturers original design.
