Neighbors’ Garage Door Openers All Quit

ST. CHARLES, Mo., Feb. 6 (UPI) — Neighbors on a Missouri cul-de-sac said they are baffled as to why all of their garage door openers stopped working at the same time.

The residents of the five homes on Westhampton View Court in St. Charles said their garage door openers stopped operating Dec. 26 and 27 and they have been unable to identify any new causes of interference in the area to explain the issue, The St. Louis (Mo.) Post-Dispatch reported Monday.

“You’d see one of the neighbors pull up to the garage and get out of the car,” Gilbert Ballman said. “Pretty soon we were asking each other, ‘Are you having trouble with your garage door too?'”

The neighbors said a technician from The Chamberlain Group, which makes Liftmaster openers, is scheduled to investigate the problem this week. All but one of the residents said they use Liftmaster devices.

The residents said they have all filed complaints with the Federal Communications Commission, but it is unknown how long the agency will take to investigate.
