Your opener enables your door to automatically open and close. Though this device can last for many years without any problems, you should always seek professional advice if a noticeable issue arises. We provide extensive repair and maintenance services and can also replace your opener where necessary. Below are a few common opener related issues to look out for.
Problems With The Safety Sensors
When a garage door reverses again while closing, this could indicate an issue with the photo eyes. These are small sensors designed to detect any obstructions while the door is in motion. Sometimes this can happen even if there appears to be nothing in the door's path – first, check for physical obstructions including dirt and dust. If the door continues to reverse unnecessarily, it could be that the sensors have become misaligned - you'll need a professional to readjust them. Our technicians can troubleshoot any such issues and provide you with the best course of action.
The Door Will Not Open
If the door refuses to open, the first thing you should do is check that the cable is still connected to the power. If it is, then we can check other possibilities such as the circuit board and wiring. Sometimes this problem can indicate that the motor has burnt out in which case we will be able to supply a replacement for you.
The Opener Keeps Running
If your opener continues to run once the door is open, then this could indicate an issue with the up-limit switch. If this has been incorrectly set, this means the door may continue to try reversing even when there is no space overhead. This can also happen the other way around, when the door is closing. Our technicians can re-calibrate this switch for you and ensure that it is well positioned to avoid any further issues.
