Depending on the reason why the garage door is stuck, some of the remedies can be easy and don’t require the services of a professional garage door repair service. However, there are some problems that should only be handled by a professional. AAA Action Garage Doors will share how to troubleshoot a stuck garage door, what you can do to repair your garage door, and when to seek a professional garage door service.
How Do You Diagnose a Garage Door Problem?
Before you call a garage repair service, there are a few elements of the garage door you can check and fix. For example, if your garage door is stuck when using your garage door remote, the battery might have died inside the remote. Before jumping to conclusions, check and change out your garage door batteries for the remote control and see if that restores your garage door. If the garage door remote isn’t the problem, then check the garage door lock. Some garage doors will have an automatic locking system or even a manual locking system. You will want to check the garage door locking system and see if that’s what is holding the garage door closed. This gives the affect that the garage door is stuck. As the homeowner, you can safely check the garage door batteries and or the garage door locking system and see if that is why the garage door appears stuck.
Professional Garage Door Inspections & Repairs
If a garage door is stuck or jammed you will want to seek the aid of a professional garage door technician. Repairing a garage door can be dangerous and requires proper training and safety awareness. When a garage door is stuck the garage door technician will often start their inspection for the problem at the garage door pulley or springs. When the pulley or springs wear down or breaks, the garage door will have a hard time opening. Often the garage door will be stuck half way open. Next, the technician will check the tracks. The tracks can become blocked, damaged, or a dislodged roll can be in the way. At times the track and shift can sit at an angle. The track will be repaired if this is the point of the problem. If the track is not the culprit, then the garage door sensors are then inspected. The sensor is like a garage door safety system, if there is anything interfering with the sensor, the garage door will not close. The sensor alignment might be a problem or there is something obstructing the sensor.
