Garage door openers allow you to stay in your warm, comfortable car on those cold, windy, rainy nights when you get home. A simple push of the button, you pull into the garage, the door closes behind you, and you’re out of the weather. .
But when nothing happens after clicking the remote, you have a bigger problem on your hands than wet shoes. For starters, you need to figure out how to disengage the opener so you can get your car in the garage. Then you need to investigate all of the potential problems affecting your opener.
Vancouver Garage Door Opener Repair
If your garage door opener isn’t operating correctly, you may not need a new one. Ponderosa Garage Doors & Repair can assess your inoperable garage door opener and offer you solutions. Oftentimes, a garage door opener malfunctions as a result of a single, sometimes minor issue.
- Photo-eye misalignment or failure. Photo eyes are found near the ground, one on each side of the door. A laser connects to the two eyes, and if that connection is broken (by a person, pet, car, etc.), the garage door opener won’t operate. This could be fixed by cleaning the optics or realignment.
- Gear and sprocket assembly failure. In some cases, the gear is made to be broken if there is too much strain on the garage door. This protects the motor from becoming overworked.
- Circuit board breakdown. This can happen due to power surges or just normal wear and tear. Installing a surge protector may help keep the circuit board safe during stormy weather.
- Moisture and overuse. Obviously, the garage should keep your opener dry at all times. But accidents happen and if your opener is exposed to moisture, it could lead to rust.
