4 Reason Why Your Garage Door Doesnt Open - Tips & Tricks

Posted on 2016-12-15 by Author admin

Most people have complaints regarding their garage doors functionality as all of a sudden without any apparent reason their garage door doesnt open or closes properly. There are 5 most common reasons that lead to this kind of situation. Some of them are mechanical issues whereas others are problems due to malfunctioning of the opener motor. You can fix these errors on your own or you might need professional’s help. There are couple of things that you need to check:

Worn Cables and Springs

A common problem for a door that refuses to follow a given command via remote control is the broken cables or springs. Springs have a certain limit and a number of cycles after which they become weak or break out. In this case, the door cannot be lifted any long using a motor. The cables might be another case of doors malfunctioning as they run through the entire setup of a garage door. In any of the cases, you need to replace the springs and cables soon to avoid critical situations.

Remote Stops Responding

A garage door remote is a portable device used to open and close the garage door in seconds and there are several types of remotes with different battery backup and installed batteries. Another cause of a non-functioning garage door is a weak battery of a remote. Sometimes, a weak battery of a remote causes the doors incomplete movements. You need to examine the batteries and replace them as soon as possible to bring back your door to its normal functionality.

Stripped Gear

It happens usually when your garage door is too heavy and there is a huge load or strain on the opener. It produces a humming sound when the door opens and closes without any problem in the movement. To resolve it, you need to replace either the opener or the gears. You need to choose one of the options which will depend on the feature set and age of your opener.

A Faulty Sensor

If none of the above issues have been taken place, you need to think deeper about the faulty sensors. You need to check the power supply whether or not is it appropriate and the LED lights are illuminating the green light. Inspect the sensors are clean or blocked due to small obstructions like spiders web or dust. Another reason might be the discharged batteries of the sensors.
