The electric garage door is powered by a garage door opener system. There are mechanics involved that most don’t think about. By a touch of a button, the garage door opens and closes for you. When the garage door does not open or close accordingly, the likely culprit is the garage door opener. When your Las Vegas, NV Valley garage door opener is not working efficiently, we at AAA Action Doors have prepared a few tips and suggestions to remedy the problem.
Remote or Wall Switch Won’t Open Garage Door
The power source on the garage door opener is likely defective if the garage door will not open through either switch or remote. The simplest solution is likely the cause, simply plug the motor back into the wall as it probably has come loose. Be sure to follow safety precautions and use a steady ladder; unplug the garage opener fully and then re-plug it in, making sure it is tightly secure. If the problem persists, the circuit breaker, fuse, or GFCI may have burned out or tripped. Replace the burned-out fuse or rest the reset the breaker or GFCI, especially if the rest of the electrical circuits in the garage have gone out. If the circuit breaker or GFCI is tripping repeatedly, it generally points to short circuit somewhere in the system a professional can diagnose and repair. Another less common reason, is the garage opener’s motor burned out and the system will need to be replaced.
Garage Door Keypad or Remote Control Not Working
Opener: The antennae may be out of range or first ensure the antennae on the motor unit is projected downward and is not at all damaged. If the opener control is not working, but the wall switch is, the remote likely needs a battery change.
Keypad: On occasion, sensitive electronics can lose their programming, resetting it is often that is required.
Garage Door Stuck Open
Adjust the close-limit switch. The limit-switch is what instructs the motor when to stop running. In the event the limit-switch is set incorrectly, the door may not close all the way. By design, the limit-switch controls the garage door as a safety measure to prevent injury or damage. The different garage doors have different methods on how the adjustment is done, be sure to consult your manual to correctly adjust the limit-switch.
Safety sensors needs a realignment. For efficient opening and closing there are electronic eye sensors on both sides at the bottom of the door track. These electronic eyes are another safety mechanism as if an object passes through the beam during closing, the garage door will stop and return to the open position. If they are accidently bumped and knocked out of alignment, the garage door will not operate correctly. Check you manual to learn how to realign the sensors.
