Sometimes it's obvious that your opener needs to be repaired or replaced because it has completely stopped working, other times you may wish to get your unit looked at ahead of time before it fails completely. If you identify any of the below problems, we recommend you call our professionals right away to ensure you don't end up without a functioning garage door in the near future.
Opener Has Life of its Own
If your door is opening and closing on its own, it could be that your neighbor's door is running on the same frequency as yours. Each time they use their remote, they'll also be affecting your system. If this is happening, give us a call. Our technicians will inspect your system and make any adjustments as necessary.
It’s Very Noisy
While some garage door openers are noisier than others just by the nature of how they are built, if your door is making loud grinding noises, interrupting your family in the home, and sounding concerning, then it’s time to call for help. If lubrication does not work and the door is safely on the tracks, then the loud noises may indicate a failing motor within the unit, or indicate that the whole thing needs to be replaced.
No Functioning Safety Sensor
If you have a garage door system that doesn’t have safety sensors built into it, this means it won't open back up again if something gets in the way of the door. If the sensors on your door are not functioning or if your door simply doesn’t have them, we recommend having this looked at as soon as possible to prevent future safety hazards from developing. Don't risk the safety of your family, neighbors, pets or guests!
