How to Open or Close a Broken Garage Door
One of the problems that you might come across when you have a garage door that has been damaged or broken is that it will not open or close. If it will not open you could have your vehicle stuck inside until you are able to get it open again. This may not be an option since most people need to have access to their car. The other problem is that it can be left open and not able to close. This is also a danger since the open space can invite a criminal in to steal from you or to get in your house. If the door will not open you can detach it from the motor with the red pull handle. This will allow you to bypass the system and open it so that you can pull your vehicle out. If the door will not close it can be due to a problem with the photo eye sensor. If this is the case, you can also bypass with the same red handle and pull the door down to secure it until a professional can come out.
