Before you call any garage door professional to service you garage door opener, there are a few thing to keep in mind that might save the trip to you, as you might be able to fix the issue on your own! try these quick fixes -

  1. Check the opener sensors (photo eyes)many times we will arrive to a client and fix this issue within 1 minute. Objects placed in front of the sensor eyes might interfere with the operation of the opener as for safety, the opener wont close the door if it thinks there I someone or something underneath it. make sure there is nothing in their way and check if the issue was fixed. 

  2. Check your remote battery - Some times it is just a remote with a dead battery you are trying to use. check the wall button to see if it works with the motor as well. 

  3. Check if your outlet is in a working condition - Your opener can be perfectly fine and yet it wont operate the door if there is no power coming to it. try to connect to the outlet a different device to see if this is an electrical issue. 

  4. Inspect the wall button - If someone accidentally pushed the "vacation lock" button, your opener wont work. This button is design to prevent door opening when you know you will be gone for more then a couple of days. 

  5. Inspect your "emergency release wire" - If your opener's chain/belt is moving but the motor is not engaging, sometime it is only because the curs was pulled so the door is operating manually.

If non of the above small fixes did not help, give us a call and we will inspect the issue and fix your garage door opener in no time.

There are four main types of access systems, and each one has a different drive system.

Chain Drive Openers - residential & commercial
Over 70% of garage door openers sold today are chain driven openers. They are durable, reliable, and offer lasting performance. They can also be very quite depending on the brand you choose. Chain drive openers are designed specifically to lift even the heaviest custom wood and carriage house garage doors.

Belt Drive Openers - residential & commercial
Belt drive systems offer the ultimate in quiet operation. Heavy-duty belt drive is as tough and smooth-running power opener with reliable performance year after year. They are a great choice for homes with living space above or next to the garage.

Residential & commercial Jackshaft Openers
Specially designed for garages that don't allow for a traditionally mounted garage door opener, a jackshaft opener is perfect when you need to save space or have an oversized door, a cathedral or very low ceiling, or an obstructed ceiling. It mounts on the wall beside the garage door.

Common problems with garage door openers -

Garage door will not go up or down?

This issue can happen due to several reasons. One of which can be just a manual wire that was pushed accidently as we explained above, a fluty opener or even a broken spring that just wont let the opener lift the door. 

Clicking or gridding sound from when you want to use your garage door?

It might be the opener gear that needs to be replaced. It can also be a chain or belt that are too loose and need adjustment. 

Opener works but the door is not open/shut all the way, why?

This is a very common issue that requires most times to reprogram the opener limits. you can refer to the device manual but we do not recommend trying to fix it on your own without the help of an expert.
