The remote controls of many garage door brands, like LiftMaster, Chamberlain, and Genie work quite similarly. To reprogram such a unit, you need to first push the "learn" button. It is usually red so it should be easily spottable. Press and hold the button for 20 to 30 seconds until the opener's light goes off. Now press the button again, and press the open button on your remote. That's it. You should now test the remote to make sure it's able to control the opener. Keep in mind that this process may slightly vary from brand to brand.

Check the tracks for damage and misalignment issues

You can check the alignment of the tracks with a spirit level and tighten their fasteners as necessary. Any bends and dents can should be repaired by a professional.

Check the garage door safety sensors regularly

New garage door opener models come with a safety feature that prevents them from closing the door when something is blocking its path. The photo electric eyes that detect said obstacles are the safety sensors, and they are installed on each side of the opening to the garage. If they become misaligned, they won't be able to properly detect obstacles, which is why it's important to check them periodically and have them realigned or replaced as necessary.
