Garage Door Repair Tips

Problem

The garage door is closed and the automatic garage door opener is not working

Solution

Go inside the garage and look near the top of the door. You will see a cord with a red handle hanging down from the guide track. This will unlock the garage door from the opener. Once pulled, it allows you to open and close the door manually on your own. This will get you back on the road again and give you time to call us out to fix the problem.

Problem

You press the button on your remote but the garage door does not open.

Solution

Many times it is because the batteries in your remote are bad. To check, go inside the garage and click the opener button on the wall. If the garage door opens the remote likely needs a battery replacement.

It's easy to change the battery on most garage door remotes. Most of the time all you need to do is slide open the battery cover on the back of the remote and remove the battery. Some may have a locking screw and require a screwdriver to remove the battery cover. Once you have the cover off, pull out the battery and head up to the store to find a replacement. It's that easy.

Problem

Your garage door opens normally but doesn’t close when the remote is pressed

Solution

Your Photo eyes may be out of alignment. Most garage doors installed from the mid 90's on, have two photo eyes on each side of the garage opening. They transmit a beam between each other. This is a safety feature to prevent automatic garage doors from closing on someone and causing injury or damage.

A garage is a dusty place and sometimes these eyes get dirty. This causes the light from the beam to be blocked. They also can get bumped and misaligned, causing the eyes to not match up on both sides.

To clean the photo eye, all you’ll need is a cloth with few squirts of window cleaner on it. Use the cloth to wipe away the dirt built up on the eye. If you clean it and the door still isn’t closing, check the alignment of the eyes. Look down one eye towards the other and match them up best you can.

If you’re still experiencing issues, it may be time to call us out to diagnose the problem.

Problem

If your garage door suddenly stopped opening and you’re sure the remote and motor are working properly.

Solution

You may have a broken torsion spring. Go inside and look at the spring above the garage door. Most of the time you will be able to see the break in the spring. If you happened to be home when they break, you’ll hear a loud bang from inside your garage. Garage doors are very heavy and a garage door opener can not lift it without the help of the springs.

If see that your spring is broken, call us for service. Garage springs can be tough to work with. Be sure not to force the door open until we come and inspect the garage door and replace the springs.
