low sensitivity of garage opener

gardenfunJanuary 20, 2007

Does anyone can give me advise on the lost sensitivity of our garage opener? It is a 1/2hp Craftsman and suddenly we have to descend from the car and get as close as 1 meter to make it work with our remotes.

We have used an extended antenna (wire)for 6 years and it seems to be in good shape.

Thank you all.

Sounds like the reciever in the opener is finally going out. You can either replace the circuit board if parts are still available for whatever model you have or replace the whole opener if it is very old.
