Garage Door Opens When It Thunders!

fairlight47July 11, 2008

Whenever there's thunder and lightning our garage door opens. The opener is about 15 yrs old and we've only had to replace batteries - no problems ever. Called the installer who referred us to another installer and he charges $85. to come out and check the opener. What could be causing this problem?

I would suggest a new opener. You will most likely pay $85.00 to someone who will tell you to get a new opener. 15 years is about 5 years beyond the normal lifetime of a door opener.
