Reconnecting Your Garage Door Opener After a Power Outage

Steps to Re-Attach Your Garage Door 

During a power outage, garage doors can be opened and closed manually by releasing the cord on the garage door arm. But, when the power is restored, the garage door opener needs to be reconnected so that your garage door starts opening and closing automatically again. Here are the steps to re-attach your garage door opener: 

  • Make sure that the garage door is completely closed once the power has been restored so that the garage door opener can be re-attached to the door.
  • Once the garage door is closed, press the garage door opener button. If your garage door remote has different buttons to open and close the door, press the close button. 
  • Allow the opener to connect automatically when the trolley moves and attach with the arm. If your garage door doesn´t connect automatically, then pull the emergency release cord toward the garage door to reconnect the arm to the trolley.
  • You must understand how to re-attach the garage door opener to the arm before actually doing it to avoid any unexpected situation.
