remote opener works close up - but no range

T/S progress so far:

New battery and several different remote control - same result

- can control with wall switch but remote more than two feet away does not work - works within one to two feet.

- suspect receiver circuit in opener - maybe front end not working.

can't find schematics to get in deeper and replace failed component. Any help appreciated.

Check your drive unit (on the ceiling). See if there is a small wire hanging down from it. That is the receiver's antenna. If the wire is there, be sure it is attached. Some models don't have an exposed antenna.
