An overhead door with extra noises can tell you that you’ll need to call for a service. You may hear squeaking or clicking when the garage doors are in motion. While you may think it’s not a big deal, it may present a dangerous situation if not taken care of. These noises could be loose, bolts, or a wearing spring. If these coils or bolts fail, it could lead to costly damage to your garage, injury, or even death. A tech must be called when your garage door system needs a professional garage door service.
Over time garage doors will eventually start sagging and may need a major repair if not appropriately maintained. When this happens, you’ll begin to see significant gaps under the ends of the garage door. To prevent this, you’ll need to test the balance of the garage doors monthly. Bring the garage door down halfway to see if it rises or falls on its own. If it does, the tension spring has worn out or become faulty. If that’s the case, you’ll need to call for garage door maintenance.
Slow Garage Door Response
Observe how long it takes for the garage door openers to open/close when you use your remote to see if your garage door openers are operating at an optimal level. It should take two seconds for your garage to respond to these commands. If there is a delay beyond two seconds, it may signify that your garage doors need a tune-up. If your garage does nothing when you press the open or close buttons on your remote, it may be a bigger problem. Your garage door opener may need a repair, need to be programmed, or you may have complex wiring issues that require a professional.
Faulty Photo-Eye Sensor
The photo-eye sensor tells your garage door to stop closing or opening if there is an obstruction. An infrared beam shines from one sensor to the other. If the infrared beam is obstructed and the garage door continues to close, this could present a dangerous situation. If the garage door does not open or close when you press the buttons on the opener, there could be a problem(unable to read one another) with the photo-eye. You should call for garage door services on your door if these issues occur.
