Are you having trouble with your garage door opener? When working properly, a garage door opener provides great value by improving the aesthetic of your property and making it easier to access your garage. However, a broken garage door opener can become a real headache, making you go rounds from your car to the garage just to get in or out of the house. We at Metro Garage Door Repair got you cover as we both repair and install garage door openers. Furthermore, we stand behind our work, that is why we provide a warranty to every garage door opener repair or installation we make.
Garage Door Opener Repair
Your garage door opener can go through many problems as time passes. Some people tend to lose tons of money in new garage door opener installations when they only need a garage opener repair service instead. We know it’s difficult to identify whether you need a repair or an installation, so here are some of the most common problems you can solve with a garage opener repair service:
Over the years the gears inside the garage door opener weaken and can break. If you notice grinding noises from your opener, the most likely cause is a broken gear.
Your garage door chains can loosen up after a particular amount of usage time, making the door opener noisy and less efficient. That issue can continually damage your garage door opener if you let it stay like that, so try to ask a garage door repair company to address it as soon as they can.
The motherboard is an essential part of your garage door opener, and it can’t work without it. If your door opener starts working incorrectly or doesn’t receive the signals the remote opener is sending to it, the motherboard could be the problem.
Damaged or Missing Sensors
The opener’s safety sensors make the garage door stop whenever they encounter an obstacle when closing the door. Having missing or damaged sensors is highly dangerous because it won’t prevent your garage door from closing even if there is a person or an object under it. Damaged sensors can also send false signals to the opener and make it so you won’t be able to close the garage door.
Non-Functional Wall Unit or Remote
Whether it’s a wall unit keypad or a remote door opener, if it doesn’t work, you can’t open nor close your garage door. Things such as sudden disruption or debris on the opener’s antenna can make those devices lose connection with the door opener, so you need to replace them if they are broken or reprogram them if there was a connection disruption.
Garage Door Opener Installation
Some issues are more complicated than others, so you can’t fix them with a simple garage door opener repair. In those cases, the most appropriate thing to do is to ask for a new opener installation to avoid any more problems. Here is a list of some of the primary situations when you should ask for a new garage door opener installation instead of a repair:
• You need to replace an old unit with a better one.
• You are selling your house and you need your garage door opener to work properly for the home inspection.
• The garage door opener has problems frequently.
Garage Door Opener Common Issues & Solutions
Our technicians are all very skilled and professional. Because of this, they always offer the best repair and installation services. There are many reasons why you may require them to come and have a look at the problems you are experiencing with your garage door opener. These reasons are discussed here in further detail.
Emergency Release is Pulled Down
If your garage door won’t open, it could be because the emergency release is pulled down, causing your garage opener to be disengaged. To solve this issue you need to re-engage the garage door opener.
Grinding noises are not only disturbing but also a sign that your garage door opener is having a problem you need to address. These noises mostly happen because of broken gear. If that is the case, we can check the gear inside your door opener and probably repair it instead of installing a new garage door opener.
The Garage Door Opener is Not Closing Normally (Sensors)
Usually, sensors are an issue that you should try to resolve yourself before contacting a professional. First, make sure that there are no objects between the sensors and that their lenses are clean. Another simple solution is checking if the sensors are aligned. If you didn’t manage to fix the problem yourself, contact us and one of our professional technicians will repair your garage door opener for you.
The Remote Keypad or Control of the Opener is not Responding
A problem with your garage door remote opener or your wall mount garage door opener can be a nuisance because it means you have to manually open your garage door. The root of the issue can be a simple problem like dead batteries or needing to reprogram the garage door remote. If troubleshooting the problem yourself didn’t help, call us today for same-day service.
Opener Reversing Feature Doesn’t work
One of the most important things to consider when doing a garage door safety check is if the door reversing feature is working properly. Otherwise, it can become a significant safety concern because of the danger it represents if your garage door keeps closing even when there’s an obstacle in the way. We can fix your opener’s reversing feature to protect you and your family from any harm.
Types of Garage Doors Openers
Belt-Driven Garage Door Opener
Belt-driven garage door openers work with a belt connected to the door trolley instead of a chain. This door opener is not as affordable as the other models, but it’s more resistant and has more longevity, meaning it doesn’t require as much maintenance. In addition, it comes with a battery backup.
Chain-Driven Garage Door Opener
If you are looking for an inexpensive garage door opener that works properly and is durable, a chain-driven garage door opener could be your best choice. However, it important to know that this door opener is noisy, so that could be a setback for you.
Wall Mount Garage Door Opener
Wall mount garage door openers are also known as Jackshaft door openers and work differently from others such as the chain-driven and belt-driven ones. This opener has to be connected to the wall next to the garage door to go through the door track to open and close it. This garage door opener is very common in commercial garage doors and residential high lift garage doors.
