We rely on our garage doors to open and close when we need them to. After all, if a door won’t open, your car may get stuck inside the garage and you’ll be late for work. If a door won’t shut, you may be unable to leave your home for fear of theft.
Determining the source of the problem isn’t always easy. Garage doors consist of numerous parts, from springs coils to cables to rails to panels to remote controls. Any of these parts can malfunction at any time, creating a huge headache.
Many garage door issues are easily fixed, though. Consider a reputable Munster garage door professional for your garage door repairs.
You might come home from work one day and find that you can’t open the garage door with the remote. You might get ready to leave your house one day and find that the garage door won’t close. What do you do?
If your garage door is opening or closing only partially, it may be because a spring is broken. It could also be that a limit setting needs to be adjusted. It may be something as simple as the track lacking grease to help the door run smoothly. In this case, a little WD-40 may do the trick.
If you hear the motor of the garage door but it’s not moving, it could be an issue with the cable. If it has snapped or become loose, there will not be enough tension to open or close the door. It could also be an issue with the photo sensor. If it is not aligned, your door won’t work properly.
If the wall switch in the garage is not working, then it may be a power supply issue. If the unit is plugged in, then you may have faulty wiring.
If you’re using the remote and the garage door is not moving, then the remote may be malfunctioning. Make sure you are in range. You should also check the antenna and make sure it is not blocked or damaged. It’s also possible that the batteries may need to be replaced.
It’s a good idea to always carry a spare key to your home just in case your garage door ever does not open and you cannot get into your house. If you don’t, you’ll either have to break in or call a locksmith, which can be inconvenient and expensive.
