What to do if my door doesn’t stay up or close
Hearing that trouble is brewing with your garage door opener? Follow these troubleshooting tips and see if it fixes the issue.
If you’re experiencing an issue with your garage door opener, start with these steps:
• Make sure you have a new battery installed. Look for the date code on the battery case and make sure it’s within the last two years. Garage door openers use six D-cell batteries, and usually last about five years.
• Tilt the garage door up and down to see if it moves freely. If it does, your opening gear may be jambed. Have a family member or friend help you move the gear around while you check to make sure all of the wires are connected properly. Make sure the voltage at the opener is correct – it should be between 108-120 volts AC (non-commercial remote openers) or between 12-14 volts DC (commercial remote openers).
• Reset your garage door opener by pressing and holding in the reset button for three seconds until light flashes twice – then release button. This step should be done every time you change batteries or fix an issue with your opener.
How to troubleshoot an opener
If you are experiencing problems with your linear garage door opener, there are a few simple troubleshooting steps you can take to identify and fix the issue.
Please note that if the opener seems to be working correctly but is not opening or closing your garage door smoothly, you may need to replace the unit.:
1. Check the flex cable connection between the motor and the gearbox. This may be loose or worn out and require re-connection.
2. Make sure all gears inside the gearbox are properly lubricated. If they are not, oil can seep into the mechanism and create friction, causing problems.
3. Make sure that the safety sensors on either side of the garage door are operable and properly attached to their mounts on the wall. If they are not, then power will not be sent to open or close the door.
4. Make sure that all wires leading from the opener are properly insulated and tagged for identification (or covered with insulation). Moisture can cause electrical shorts and damage, so it’s important to identify any problems right away!
How to open a stuck garage door
If your garage door is not opening, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the issue. The first step is to check your battery. If the battery is dead, it will not power your garage door opener. Next, make sure that the cables are tightly connected at both ends and that they are properly routed. If all of these steps fail to resolve the issue, you may need to replace your garage door opener.
