How To Repair Garage Door Opener
Garage door opener repair is best done by professionals for accurate problem identification. This leads taking of the necessary actions to resolve the problem. Here are some common opener problems that you need to know about and their possible solutions:
Why did my garage door opener stop working?
Your garage door opener may stop working due to the following reasons:
Blocked photo eye
The photo eye is a safety device that detects whether there are objects blocking the door. If an object is detected, the door reverse mode is induced. Dust and dirt particles may prevent the laser beams from detecting objects. If this is the case, normal cleaning with a soft tissue will definitely solve the problem. It’s important to regularly check the cord attached to the photo eye whether it’s damaged.
Disrupted power source
If your opener fails to work, check the power supply before taking any other action. The opener should always be plugged into a working power outlet. Test the power outlet by plugging in another electronic device. Similarly, check the circuit breaker and fuses. If you need a hand, contact a technician to help you out.
Broken torsion springs
Torsion springs operate under intense pressure that makes them to snap and break. This automatically means that your opener may fail. Therefore, assess whether the springs are intact before forcing the door to open.
Faulty remote control
A faulty remote control may make your opener not to function properly. Check the batteries of the remote control and test whether it’s working. To perform a comprehensive opener assessment, contact a technician.
