Your garage opener is key to your garage door, allowing you to open and close the door with the touch of a button. It also helps to protect the things inside your garage from exposure and theft. However, garage doors can malfunction which could cost hundreds of dollars for repairs. If left not repaired, this could put you and your family in danger.
Below you will find a few reasons on why your garage door has stopped working. Ensure your safety first before starting any analyzing. Please keep children well away from a potential damaged garage door.
Troubleshooting Your Garage Door Not Working
Unplug the motor from the power source. Make sure that the garage door is down and closed.
Check to see if the spring is broken, if emergency cord is pulled with door being on an open position along with a broken spring it will come crashing down.
If the spring is not broken, then the problem could be with the motor. Test if the wall button is working by running it a few times. Make sure the sensors located on the bottom of each side of the track systems are properly aligned and powered. Misaligned sensors could cause a headache and is a simple fix.
Make sure the motor unit responds to your remote and keypad. Replace the batteries on them when necessary
.If the problem with your garage door is not related to the opener, then it’s related to the tracks, the rollers or the springs.
