Garage Door Sensors Help

Sensors Remote Controls

Sensors remote control information and diagnostics.

Checking the sensors can be a simple task which can help you more determine whether or not it is the sensors or the remote control. Keeping in mind that the main unit is always the central place where all of these components are connected and programmed to properly function. Simple, manufacturer recommendations can help you more determine what is going on with the machine. But, you can always check you self. Sensors are located on each side of the garage door, on the bottom; few inches from the floor (see images for reference). You can visually inspect them and see if they have been loosened or look crooked from one another.

These sensors are positioned to laser contact lens to lens, it’s the contact is broken; the garage door may not open, or be safe to operate. Sometimes debris gets stuck in the lenses, and they may need a brushing and wiping, be careful to not re position them, or you may need to get professional help. Some sensors may have an operational light, green, red, orange etc.. these lights may signify an issue. You can get more information the light colors and what they mean by checking your owner’s manual.


Key notes:

1. Visually inspect loose sensors.

2. Check to debris and dust.

3. Clean lenses.

4. Refer to your owner’s manual.

You can remove the batter by checking the owner’s manual how to, and which size of battery you may need. Or simply replace with the same size that’s in it. Some remotes may need to be programmed afterwards, so you will definitely should looking to the manual, or have us come out and do an inspection of all components.

Great service!

5 5 1
I had an issue with the garage door while I was out of town. My wife called me that the garage door fell off its track. When I got home the garage was a complete mess, the springs snapped the cables came lose and 2 of the rollers came off. I called Local and they had one of their experienced technicians out within 2 hours, the service call was only 20 as with other companies they were charging me 65. Well long story short my garage door was fixed they were very professional. I had no issues with them, and I am extremely grateful!
Is it my sensors or my remote control. Overall rating: 5 out of 5 based on 11 reviews.
