Like every other aspect of life, technology has also changed the way garage doors work. With manual doors, you will need to physically open and close them yourself; lifting those heavy overhead doors can be a real chore – even when you have the springs to make the task easier!
This is why automated doors are such a pleasure. All you need to do is click a button on your garage door remote and it will open or shut smoothly.
The problem is that like any other electronic device, the opener that controls your automatic garage door can develop problems. And this means that the door will not open or close properly – or maybe it won’t work anymore.
When to Call a Garage Door Repair Company
There are a few things you can do for yourself when your automatic garage door opener isn’t working properly.
- When neither the wall switch nor the remote-control work, then you can check the power outlets. Sometimes the only thing that’s wrong is the motor unit has become unplugged. Another reason could be because there is a fuse has burned out in your garage and needs to be replaced.
- It could be that you simply need to reprogram the opener. Usually, there will be instructions on how you can do it.
- The antenna could have moved. Ensure that your garage door opener’s antenna is hanging downward and then try the door again.
- The batteries in the remote may need changing.
- There is something called a close-limit switch in the door opener. If that is set wrong, it could prevent your garage door from closing properly. This switch is an inbuilt safety measure in automatic garage doors that prevents the doors from opening or closing when you are standing close to them. Adjusting this switch and fix the problem.
