You know how it goes. You hear a click. The whole house goes dark. You scramble for a flash light. You wonder if the frozen peas stand a chance.
Then the heavens open and you hear the beep of electricity come back. *The crowd cheers.* (So do the peas.)
Only…… the beeping doesn’t stop. It’s coming from your garage.
But what the heck is causing it?
When the power is restored after an outage, garage door openers often emit a series of beeps to signal their return to normal functionality. While this is a standard feature on most garage door openers, sometimes the beeping continues even after the system has fully powered up. There could be various reasons behind this behavior, but the good news is that most of them are easily fixable. (Whew.)
