Just because your garage door is still opening and closing, doesn’t mean that there aren’t things that need to be replaced. There are certain garage door problems that you should not allow to sit. If you notice these issues, then you should contact us so that we can get your repairs accomplished.
Door Gets Stuck in Place
If your door starts to open or close and then stops, that is a problem. Sometimes, doors can get stuck for reasons such as:
- Tracks get out of alignment
- Rollers wear out
- Opener needs to be replaced
- Springs lose tension
- Battery dies on the remote
When this happens to your door, you can troubleshoot the concerns and see if you find what’s wrong. Start by checking the power to the opener and remote. Then, look to see if something is in the way of the safety eye sensors. You can even look at the tracks and see if there is anything preventing the door from moving.
If you can’t find anything wrong, and it won’t move up or down, then you should call us. In the meantime, pull the emergency release cord so you can close the door or open it. If the door still won’t move, then leave it alone and call a professional.
The Door Closes Fast
Your assembly is designed to slowly open and close your garage door to prevent damage to the tracks and harm to you or your property. If the door closes fast or with a thud, then that is an indicator that the cables or springs are wearing out. It is for your family’s safety that these parts stay in good working condition.
If you think your springs are not working properly, you need a professional to make that repair. It is recommended that only certified technicians take care of spring replacement because it is dangerous. This part must be replaced the right way or you could suffer fatal harm.
Door Starts to Close But Opens Back Up
All garage doors have a safety feature installed to keep you from harm. There are safety eye sensors that are located at the bottom of the door frame. These sensors line up so that there is a beam that is projected between the two.
If the beam is interrupted, it will cause the door to open back up. This is a safety precaution that is in place to keep the door from closing on you or your property. When something gets in the way, it will cause the door to open instead of closing.
When this happens, you need one of our technicians to come out and inspect the sensors. They will make sure the sensors are aligned, as well as clean them off. It could be that one of the sensors has gone bad and needs to be replaced fully.
