The Three Most Common Issues
The three most common issues when garage doors break are broken openers, broken springs, and faulty close limit switches. The motor in your opener could be starting to burn out, or the part that attaches it to the trolley such as the chain, belt, or screw, could be worn or broken.Typically, you can still open your door c manually if this is the case. Broken springs are usually immediately apparent because they are weight bearing and affect the ability to move your door at all, either by the opener or manually. Extension springs break more often than torsion springs, and have a safety cable to prevent injury from the force released in the break. Close limit switches are usually behind a door that is "misbehaving." A close limit switch tells the motor when to turn off, a necessary piece in a smoothly functioning door. Our technicians are experienced in all garage door repair needs and can handle any issue.
Diagnosing the Problem
If your motor is starting to wear out your door may be moving more slowly or in rigid movements. If your door falls into a slanted position, a spring may have broken on one side or something may be coming off of its track. A door that tries to open again immediately after it is closed or that closes partially and then reverses has a problem with its close limit switch. Our staff has years of experience in diagnosing the issues with broken doors and can quickly get your problem under control.
