craftsman 1/2hp gdo, rf problem
Hi, I am sorry this is long but please help!!!!
I've read hundreds of post today. My problem is similar to many. Like many others I am having problem with my remote and keyless entry pad and as with many the problem seemed to start around the same time I changed batteries. They either won't work at all or the remote only works when you stand under the gdo or sometimes only a few feet away. Sometimes I can get the KEP to work for a few times then not.
However, my problem is intermittent, some times they (the remote and KEP) will open and close the GD sometimes not. I can go days where they work and then they don't. I am a sahm so most of the time I use them is during the day.I have torn my hair out trying to fiqure this out I have tried just about all the related fixes I found in this forum that I thought would pertain to my problem (mainily reprogramming issues)It finally dawned on me that most of the times when one or the other or both have worked its during the day Mon - Fri. Rarely do they ever work when my husband is driving the family around and that just happens to be in the evenings and on weekends. For Example I tried the remote today it worked fine even from the street(40ft away) I used it every hour or two and it worked fine, at 6:00 it didn't work. I am begining to think there must be some radio frequency interference. What do you think? If so, what can I do. I hate to think I have to spend a bunch of money to buy a new GDO just because someone around me bought a new toy :[ Anyone have any idea's?
