The garage doors on your home are there to keep anything you store in the garage safe and secure. They are also there for a convenient entrance and exit from your home. In fact, we get so used to using this entrance into our home that when it isn’t working properly, it gets inconvenient quickly. There are several things that can go wrong with your garage doors. AAA Action Garage Doors is here to talk about what some of the most common issues we see are and what could be causing them.
Why Would Garage Door Opener Stop Working?
It’s frustrating when your garage door opener isn’t working when you need it to. It’s something customers run into quite often and can usually get fixed with some simple tweaks. The first thing that needs to be checked is the plug to ensure it is plugged in. If that has been checked and isn’t the problem, the next thing to look at is the circuit breaker to make sure it hasn’t been tripped.
Why Does My Garage Door Make Noise when Opening or Closing?
When your garage doors are loud as they open and close, the problem is most likely lubrication. The working parts that open and close your garage door can become loud if they aren’t getting the lube they need to function. Locate the areas that are making the noise and add some lubricant. If that doesn’t work, you can tighten the nuts and bolts as well to see if you can eliminate the source of the noise. You could also be dealing with misaligned tracks or an opener that has failing parts.
Garage Door Doesn’t Fully Close All the Way
If your door isn’t releasing all the way down, there is likely something interfering with the closing mechanism. The close-limit switch on your garage door may need to be reset it to make sure the settings are right, and the door has the ability to close all the way. If you have any rusted rollers, they can also get in the way of a door closing.
Your Garage Door Opener Remote is Unresponsive
When your door won’t respond to the remote or the button on your wall, you can have an issue with your opener’s photo eyes. Check these eyes for lights and if you don’t see any, you need to make sure it is getting power. Test the outlet as well to make sure it is working properly. If all of this doesn’t work, you may need to contact a professional to make sure it doesn’t have bigger problems.
