Powermaster Troubleshoot

Before we even begin explaining about different problems with Powermaster Motors and the ways to deal with them, we would like to start by declaring that a commercial garage door should be serviced by a qualified repairman. The commercial doors in Los Angeles can be dangerous, and if they will be serviced by someone who is not qualified for that type of repairs it can end with injuries.
There are several problems your rolling door might experience when the low temperatures in Los Angeles strike. You might notice some delay in opening of your rolling door, or even the inability to open at all. In the event that a rolling door is not opening, not closing, or any type of problem, hire a local rollup door specialist in Los Angeles for the service, and by doing so you will be making sure that the gate will be safe for use once the technician will complete the service.
But even if that it might seem to you like the problem is coming from the motor, know that it is not always the reason. Often the problem is coming from the gate itself. Steel components will contract as the temperature in Los Angeles drops. This is why recommend to use grease which is designed for commercial gates in Los Angeles. If you will use the wrong type of grease, the grease will thicken and prevent the rolling door from working properly.

  • The receiver might be broken: Assuming that it is a Powermaster Gate motor problem, sometime the connection between the remote and the gate is lost. In the case you will need to repair or replace the receiver, or reprogram the remote.
  • The rollup door itself is broken: If you only knew how many calls we get for emergency gate repairs in Los Angeles, telling us that the motor is broken. And when we arrive we see that the gate itself is the cause for the problem (As we said, the Powermaster motors are very strong). If the gate is damaged, off tracks, the spring is lose. Or the tracks are damaged, it must be taken care of before testing the motor.

If your rolling door doesn’t stop where it is supposed to, it might be due to the limit switch issue. In that case you will need a rolling gate expert to come and check the motor.
