To save time and trouble, you should allow a professional to repair or install the garage door. Still, it is in your best interest to have some knowledge about garage doors in order keep yours operating efficiently. It is most important to be familiar with the door you own. The information stated here will display common automatic garage door issues troubleshooting.
Electrical Faulty Garage Door
With just a push of a button, the automatic door opens and closes with ease. The remote control can usually be used within a range of about 100 feet, even if your view of the door is obstructed. However, the garage door comes with a built in sensor. If while closing, the sensor notices an obstruction, the door will immediately raise back up. Likewise, if the door is opening and encounters an obstruction, it will stop automatically. These sensors are common safety features packaged with most automatic garage doors.
Automatic lights that instinctively switch on when the garage door closes is another safety feature. They stay on for a few minutes so that you can see while getting out of the car. Also, most automatic garage doors offer a manual option in case of power failure.
The average garage door is opened around 600 times per year. Because of all this movement, a garage door needs regular maintenance. You may even need to replace the door entirely.
There are several common issues that you should take into consideration.
When Nothing Seems to Work: Most likely, an unresponsive remote control only needs fresh batteries. However, an unresponsive wall switch is an entirely different matter. Make sure the motor is plugged in and check the fuse. If none of these are the issue, then call us at 1-888-390-6416.
The Garage Door Freezes in the Middle of Closing, then Reverses: When this happens, check the safety sensors. They may be unaligned or need to be cleared of any obstacles. Sometimes, there is faulty wiring. In other cases, simple motor adjustments will be needed. If the issue is still unresolved, consider calling Local Garage Doors Repair and Gate.
The Remote Control Cannot Close the Garage Door: Most of the time, the remote control can open the garage door, but cannot close it. If this happens try a new battery or align the batter prongs. Adjust the antenna’s angle in relation to the motor.
If you intend to resolve a garage door issue yourself, please be cautious. Sometimes further damage occurs, resulting in a bigger repair job than before. We advise against fixing certain issues yourself, ie: if the chain is broken, if the motor is ruined, or if major damaged was caused by a vehicle. You will save more time and money if your call us right away.
