Garage Door Opener Repair

Your garage door opener can go through many problems as time passes. Some people tend to purchase a new opener when they should order a 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:

Broken Gear

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.

Faulty Motherboard

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 garage door 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. Furthermore, damaged sensors can also send false signals to the opener and make it so you won’t be able to close the garage door.

Loose Chain

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 ignore it, so try to ask a garage door repair company to address it as soon as they can.

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 they can’t be fixed by a simple repair. In those cases, the most appropriate thing to do is to install a new opener. Here are some examples of the primary situations when you should ask for an opener installation instead of a repair:

• You have an old unit that will likely have more issues in the near future.
• You are selling your house and you need your garage door opener to work properly for the home inspection.
• You are not satisfied with the current performance of your opener.

Types of Garage Doors Openers

There are two main types of garage door openers to choose from – Chain Drive and Belt Drive. Each of them has both advantages and disadvantages, that we’ve listed below.

Belt-Driven Garage Door Opener

Belt Drive garage door openers are different from Chain Drive openers in that they use belts instead of chains in their operating mechanism. Due to this, these devices are much quieter and so are usually used in attached garages.  The downside to these types of garage door openers is that they are a bit more expensive.

Chain-Driven Garage Door Opener

Chain Drive garage door openers are the most commonly used, and it involves the use of a chain that pushes or pulls the trolley that moves the door. Such types of openers are more affordable than belt-drive. However, they do can be noisy, so they are best suited for garages that are detached from the house or are relatively far from bedrooms.
