Common Garage Door Problems
We take our garage doors for granted until they stop working. A broken garage door is more than an inconvenience, it's a security problem. Having to leave your garage door open or partially closed because you have to get to work is an invitation for thieves. Fortunately, many of these problems can be readily fixed with just a bit of know-how.
The Remote Opener Has No Effect On The Garage Door
Try the wall switch. If this doesn't open the door, then power isn't getting to the motor. Check the circuit breaker and reset if it is tripped. Check to see if the motor is plugged in.
On the other hand, if the wall switch opens (or closes) the door while your remote does not, then there is a problem with your remote. Replace or recharge the batteries if they are weak. The remote may also be incorrectly programmed. Correct this by following its instructions.
The Garage Door Doesn't Fully Close
An object on the floor beneath the garage door may be preventing it from closing. Inspect and clear any obstructions. Another cause is sensor eye problems. They are located on the sides of the door about 6 inches from the floor. Clean the eye lenses. If this doesn't fix the problem, then they could be misaligned. One eye lens sends a light signal while the other (the receiver) receives the signal. If there is a misalignment, the LED light on the receiver will be off. Readjust the eyes until the receiver LED light turns on.
The Garage Door Doesn't Open
Your door may be locked. A blinking light on your door open button will indicate this. Depress the lock/unlock button until the blinking stops. If the motor runs but the door doesn't move, check to see that the safety release (red pull cord) hasn't been released. Some motors automatically re-engage it while others require a manual re-engagement.
If the motor labors hard but is barely or not opening the door, then you may have a broken spring. Release the door from the trolley by pulling the safety release pull cord and try to manually open the door. The door should open easily if your springs are in good condition. If the door feels very heavy, then a spring is likely broken. Never attempt to replace springs because they are very dangerous.
