Most Common Garage Door Problems

When it comes to garage door problems, we have seen and fixed it all. Some of the most common garage door problems that our professionals see include:

  • Misaligned photo eyes. You probably know that when something is in the path of your garage door, it won’t close, but instead reverses in order to prevent an accident or damage. If your garage door keeps going down only to reopen before it closes completely, and you can’t see anything in the way of the garage door’s path, the problem may be misaligned photo eyes. Photo eyes are sensors that register whether or not anything is blocking the garage door from closing, but over time they can become very dirty (making detecting objects very difficult) and misaligned. We can clean and realign photo eyes to get things on the move again.
  • Defective transmitters. Your automatic garage door opener works by transmitting a signal to your garage door. If something is defective with the transmitter, the signal won’t go through, and you won’t be able to open your garage door. If your door is difficult to open even when you are standing right in front of it, a defective transmitter may be to blame.
  • Broken springs. Springs are responsible for moving the garage door up and down. If you hear a loud crash and the garage door won’t open, broken springs may be the problem. You should never try to repair broken springs on your own, as doing so has the potential to be very dangerous. Instead, let our experienced professionals help you diagnose and correct broken springs.
