The Garage door is not responding to the transmitter in the car
You will be surprised how often people call the repair service for this one only to find out it was a simple battery change needed. If you seem to point the remote and nothing happens, try going to the transmitter switch on the wall and press the button. If the garage door responds, then the transmitter batteries are dead and need to be replaced.
The Motor is running but the garage does not open
You may imagine this is very serious and you call the garage repair company because you can hear the motor running but the garage door won’t open. This is common if the disconnect switch has been enabled. This is used when there is no power and you want to open the garage door manually. Sometimes you may have pulled it and forgotten it enabled or the children may have done it. Try disabling the switch and see if that helps.
The Garage door opens but cannot close
Modern garage door openers have new technology called a photo eye, this is intended as a safety feature to ensure the door does not close and end up hitting someone or something in its path. The photo eye is made up of 2 sensors, one on the door and another on the ground. The 2 sensors have beams that meet each other to indicate that the path is clear. If there is dust or anything blocking one of the eyes, the door will not close so check to see what is blocking the photo eye or if it may be out of line.
The door makes too much noise and is not smooth
This one you probably can guess. It is something that happens after a long time. The most probable cause is that the joints need oiling. Movable joints in any machine need to be oiled periodically. So check and see if there is enough oil and if not, add oil. Sometimes the garage door springs may need to be lubricated with WD-40, if not they may be broken.. Visually inspect for any abnormalities.
These are just a few problems that you may be able to fix on your own but if you are not confident to do it, then give the professionals a call. And if the remedies suggested do not fix your garage door, by all means, call the professionals at Local Garage Door Repair Stevenson Ranch Ca.

Brands we service
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. 🙂
