What powers the electric garage door is the garage door opener. The mechanics involved is rarely thought about. The garage door will open and close with a simple switch of a button fixed on the wall or in the remote. Only when the garage door openers are unresponsive do we take notice of the garage door opener. With this in mind, we at AAA Action Doors of Las Vegas, NV would like to elaborate on a few troubleshooting tips regarding your garage door opener.
Garage Door Wall Button & Remote Not Working
The power source is a likely suspect when the garage door will not open through either switch. The motor unit commonly comes unplugged or loses connection enough to prevent power when as one of the simplest solutions. Make certain the plug is tightly plugged into the outlet, be sure to use a safe, steady ladder. There can also be a tripped or burned out circuit breaker, fuse, or GFCI. In the event you find that other lights or electrical circuits in the garage that aren’t operating as well, you will need to reset the breaker or GFCI, or replace the burned-out fuse. Should the circuit breaker or GFCI is tripping repeatedly, this indicates that that there is a short circuit somewhere in the system. Finally, you may need a replacement if the garage door motor could have burned out.
Garage Door Will Not Open with Keypad or Opener
Keypad: Though resetting it is often all it needs; sensitive electronics can occasionally lose their programming.
Opener: Ensure the antennae on the motor unit is projected downward and is not at all damaged, the antennae may be out of range and start by moving closer. In the event the wall switch is working but the opener control is not, it likely in need of a battery change.
Garage Door Won’t Close All the Way
An adjustment may be required with the close-limit switch. The limit-switch stops running when the garage door instructs the motor. If the limit-switch is set incorrectly, the door may not close all the way. The limit-switch is designed to control the garage door as a safety measure to prevent injury or damage. Consult your manual or contact a professional to dictate how adjusting it is done, depending on the garage door opener. A realignment may be needed for the sensory needs. An alignment for efficient opening and closing may be done on both sides at the bottom of the door track are electronic eye sensors. If anything passes across the sensor, as another safety contingency, the garage door will stop closing and usually reopen. Should these sensors get knocked out of alignment, they will be inefficient. To properly realign the sensors, you can consult your manual. Additionally, the rollers can be rusted or damaged, which prevents the garage door from closing. A damaged roller will need to be replaced, however, in some cases, lubricant will adequately keep the rollers moving smoothly.
