Garage Door Repair San Francisco Ca

Common garage door repairs are much too dangerous for a do-it-yourself handyman, but troubleshooting can be done by anyone with a ladder and a flashlight. Here are a few steps you can take to determine what’s wrong with your garage door system:

While the door is closed, Local Garage Door Repair San Francisco Ca recommends to pull the emergency release cord located near the top and middle of the door. Lift the door manually. If it doesn’t roll up and down smoothly, you have a problem with your tracks, springs and garage door cables, but not with your opener.

Safety first – Keep the door down. Imagine what would happen if you had a broken spring, and you pulled the emergency release when the door was in the raised position! Unplug the garage door opener. You don’t want it to start moving while you are examining the door, and you don’t want to get electrocuted.

If your wall switch works, but your remote control unit does not, you may need new batteries or a whole new remote. A professional garage door opener repair expert can hook you up with a compatible remote.

Does your garage door only go down all the way when you hold down the button on the wall switch? It’s probably a case of misaligned safety sensors, or possibly direct sunlight interfering with them.

A very common request for garage door repair companies is to make the garage door opener light work again. If a new bulb doesn’t do the trick, and everything else works, it’s obvious you need a new light socket.

Sometimes you see your trolley carriage moving as usual, but the garage door stays put. It means you need a new carriage, which is not a major repair or expense, but it should be done by a pro.

When you hear a grinding noise from the opener, but the door won’t move, it’s most likely a faulty main drive gear, which can be replaced. It’s the round plastic gear that touches the worm drive gear on the motor, and it’s the most common type of garage door opener repair.

Anytime you hear a hesitation in your garage door, you should check the chain tension. Chain drive openers generally maintain 1/4″ to 1/2″ of slack from the rail to the chain.

There is nothing more annoying than a garage door that won’t stay down. If your door keeps coming back up after it hits the floor, a relatively simple adjustment of the travel setting will correct it, if you still having problems, call your local tech in San Francisco Ca.

Service Reviews

Lawrence took my call right away. He came out first thing the next morning. And when we had to re-schedule, he came back the same day after he was finished with all his other appointments. He not only replaced the springs on the door that needed fixing, he oiled and inspected the other door, too. He was nice, friendly, competent, and quick! Oh, and his prices were great! He gave me a discount for no reason, too. 🙂
