When it comes to garage door service or garage door repair, you are advised to take the help of a professional. However, there are extremely small and minor problems that may occur in the opener of the garage door. Such problems could be dealt by yourself without hiring professional companies. Two major issues with garage doors are discussed below.
If you have a garage door that doesn’t require the aid of a professional firm, then you can fix the minor problems on your own. If you have a broken garage door and you are sure that you can repair it on your own, then go ahead. However, if you are sure that you won’t be able to handle it, then call in a professional firm, such as Edmonton garage door service or an expert in you locality.
Some situations which you can deal on your one are as follows:
Garage door refuses to open
In some cases you can find your garage door not opening. This is not a major problem. When you find that your garage door that is operated with the help of a remote control refuses to open, then the problem could lie with your remote control. Hence you do not have to worry about the opener of your garage door, or cable, or spring. Find out if the remote control is able to send suitable signals and also see that it has adequate power to send the signal. Quite often, the receiver is unable to receive appropriate signal on account of faulty installation.
If you sense some issues with your remote, examine the track. The track can be obstructed by some hindrance. If you are unable to fix this issue with your remote control, then you need to replace your garage door opener.
Garage door refuses to close
Sometimes your garage door opens but doesn’t close. The problem in this case could lie in the beam sensor. Beam sensors that are integrated remain fixed in all the new models of garage doors. These sensors will tell if there is any object that is providing obstruction to the signal’s channel. This is a protective measure to avoid something from being smashed.
Find out if the installation is performed properly. If your beam sensor gives you false indications, then your door will open but won’t close.
