What To Do When Your Garage Door Won’t Open or Close

Posted Garage Doors

It happens at the most inconvenient time. You’re getting ready to leave for work, you go to open or close the garage door, and it doesn’t work. Panic strikes. What do I do? How much is this going to cost? These are just a few questions that race through your mind as you relentlessly keep pressing the button on your garage remote.

Relax. There are several possibilities and solutions that will have your garage door operational without having to pay for a garage door repair service. The following are common reasons why a garage door might not to work. If these solutions don’t work for you, then perhaps it’s time that you called the garage door repair experts at Preferred Window and Door.

Check the batteries in your remote control: If your system uses a wireless opener, the batteries must be replaced periodically.

Check the safety beams: Sometimes an object can trigger the motion safety sensor of your garage system. This will prevent your garage door from closing. Check and make sure that your sensors are free from obstructions.

Check the manual pull switch: The cord that hangs from where your door is attached to the chain engages the manual operation of your garage door. When this cord has been pulled the garage door opener will operate, but the door will not open.

Check the garage door opener receiver: Is the unit receiving power? Does the light turn on? Check your circuit breaker and reset any tripped breakers.

By first ruling out the above reasons, you will save money by not having to pay a professional garage door repair technician to tell you to change your battery. However, if you notice any damaged rollers, panels, or think your garage door spring may be damaged, it is best to call the garage door repair professionals at Preferred Window and Door.
