Troubleshooting a Broken Garage Door Opener

One of the most frustrating aspects of having a garage door is when the automatic opener won’t work anymore. Sure, you can open it manually, but that does you no good when you are outside in bad weather! Here are a few recommendations on how to fix your garage door opener, at least temporarily, until our garage door company in Scott County can come out and fix it for you.

Problem: Your garage door opener will not work with the remote or the wall switch.

Chances are, the power source has been disrupted somehow. Make sure the unit is fully plugged in and make sure you didn’t accidentally blow a fuse. If neither of these solutions work, call our garage door company to come out and take a look.

Problem: Your garage door will close but not all the way.

More than likely, the close limit switch needs to be readjusted. Give us a call and we can come out and see what needs to be done. Otherwise, it could be that the door is binding when it is being raised and lowered manually.

Problem: Your garage door immediately closes after it opens and vice versa.

This is another situation where the close limit switch needs to be readjusted. To be on the safe side and to make sure no accidents occur, give our garage door company a ring and schedule an appointment. We can come to your home or business to ensure your garage door is working as it should be.

Problem: Your garage door will not open or close with its remote control.

There are a few different things you can try in this scenario. Try moving closer to your garage door when you hit the button to open or close it because you might be out of range. Make sure the antenna that is on the motor unit is hanging down. Check the remote’s batteries and change them. Or maybe the remote needs to be reprogrammed, in which case give us a call so we can take care of that for you. And, of course, if none of this works, call us and we will come out as soon as possible to fix your opener for you.
