Finding the Problem With Your Garage Door Opener
Garage door openers perform a singular task, but they still require a variety of parts to perform reliably. One malfunction in any component and your unit could experience anything from hampered performance to complete disrepair. Our experienced and talented staff will take the time to analyze your situation, test the parts and pinpoint the problem. Some are simple fixes, while others might require more extensive repairs and possibly even replacements.
A few common issues that can arise include:
- The Track: It’s easy to forget about, but your opener’s motor hoists a heavy door up and down the tracks multiple times per day for months and years on end. Gradual wear and unlubricated parts can cause issues on the track, which can carry severe consequences if you don’t address it quickly. Continuing to use the door can bend the frame and render the system unusable. Common symptoms of this issue include loud noises and slower lifts than usual.
- The Transmitter: When your garage door won’t open and refuses to obey the click of your remote transmitter, or it appears to open the door without your permission, people often assume the worst. That said, it might just be the batteries, which you can replace easily. However, another problem that has been known to occur with transmitters happens at an invisible level. Garage door remote transmitters can fall on the same frequency as other units, which means you might be overlapping with your neighbors. That’s right: you might be controlling one another’s doors. We can solve this issue by reprogramming the remotes.
- The Photo Eye: Garage doors have quite a few safety features built into them, and the photo eyes are one of the most important. Located on parallel sides of the door, the sensors project invisible beams that detect obstructions in the door’s path. Once something triggers the failsafe, it will stop the opener immediately. You can risk damage to your property and bodily harm to the people in your home if this isn’t fixed quickly.
- The Battery: Sometimes, it’s as simple as the main unit’s power supply running out of juice. We offer garage door opener battery replacement through Charlotte and the surrounding areas.
