How to Change the Battery in your Garage Door Opener

If your garage door opener is not responding to the remote control or wall control, the battery in the battery backup unit may need to be replaced.


 Here is a step-by-step guide to change the battery in your garage door opener:

  1. Before you start, make sure you have a new battery of the same size and type as the one you are replacing. You can usually find this information in the owner’s manual for your garage door opener or by contacting the manufacturer.
  2. It is a good idea to unplug the garage door opener before you start to change the battery to prevent any accidental activation of the door.
  3. If you are having trouble locating the battery backup unit or removing the cover, you can refer to the owner’s manual for your specific model of garage door opener.
  4. After you have replaced the battery, test the garage door opener to make sure it is working properly. You can do this by pressing the remote control or the wall control to open and close the door.


It is a good idea to keep a spare battery on hand in case the battery in your garage door opener fails. This will ensure that you are prepared in case of an emergency. If the door does not respond after completing these steps, you may need to troubleshoot the issue or seek the assistance of a professional.
