What is wrong with my opener?

One of the problems that may occur, in case you are using an electric overhead garage door operated by an electric opener, is a problem with the opener, or one of its accessories. We would like to go over few of the common ones:

What is the problem with the safety sensors?

We are getting many calls from people who try to close their overhead door, but the door does not go down all the way, and reversing to open position at some point. Usually the problem is due to safety sensors issue.
To solve that problem, you need to understand the way the garage door safety sensors work: If you look at your overhead door (Again, only automated doors), you will see that on each one of your tracks, or next to it, there is a safety sensor, which is pointed to the other sensor. If one of the laser sensors was pushed, break, cut off, or anything that prevent it from doing its job, the garage door won’t close. The opener, which is not receiving a signal from the sensors that everything is safe, and that the door can be closed safely, will reverse and open the door, in order to prevent whatever it is that located on the overhead door path from getting hurt.
Solution: Check if the sensors are facing each other. If someone accidently moved one of them, or if the screw that hold them got lose, or if there is dirt covering the lens, fix it and test the door again. If the problem still not solved, there may be a different problem, and you better contact a garage door company in your area to repair the sensors.

Why the Key-pad and the remote don’t work?

If the Key-pad or the remote control does not open the door, and you are getting no respond from the opener, you can do 2 things: The first thing will be to check if there is electricity in the garage. The second will be to replace the batteries inside the remote and the Key pad. If both things don’t solve the problem, consider contacting a garage door company in Redondo Beach.

Why my overhead door spring snapped?

If you heard a loud noise coming from your garage, when the door is closed, and now suddenly the door won’t open, if it is for the motor to lift, if it is out of balance, out of track, or any other reason that the door don’t behave like every safe door should, you may have a broken spring.
Luckily, if the spring snapped, it does not mean that you need a new garage door, just that you need to replace the spring.
Since a spring replacement can be dangerous, and we prefer that you will let an experienced technician to repair it, we avoid giving instructions on how to repair a broken spring. What we can recommend to you is to contact us for a same day broken spring repair

Why the door went out of track?

We would like to make it clear, there is a reason why a garage door went out of the track. A perfectly working garage door don’t just going out of track, and pushing the rollers back will not repair the problem, and it is most likely to happen again.
If you hit the door with a car, if the spring broke, the roller is rusted, and the door went out of track, contact us ASAP and we will repair it for you.

Why the cable snapped?

Your garage door is working with a spring system that make it so easy to open and close even the heaviest commercial overhead doors. But sometime one of the cables can snap, and that make the door dangerous, and into a door that should be repaired before used again.
If you see that the cable is getting weak, and that it is going to snap, do not ignore it. It is better to repair it now, than to wait for it to completely snap – something that will be both dangerous, and that will cost you much more money than if you would of repair it on time.

Do I need a maintenance?

Yes. Every overhead door need to be maintained. It does not matter if you own a garage door in Hermosa Beach, or overhead door in Woodland Hills, they both need to be maintained. The problem is that many think that since their door is working perfectly, there is no reason to maintain it, and the door will continue to work. They are right, the door will continue to work, but the question “is for how long”?
If you will not maintain your garage door, it will stop working, the spring may break, the roller may get rusted or any other problem. But if you will maintain it, you will make sure it will continue to work for a long time.
