Garage Door Opener Repair
You may need garage door opener repair for a myriad of reasons. Nearly a dozen common problems can make your garage door difficult to operate. It may not open at all. There are some uncommon problems too. A nest of tiny insects can cover the sensor and render the door unresponsive. A harmless tennis ball
thrown or hit strongly can knock the garage door off its track, partially or entirely. There are many such possibilities but mostly you will need garage door opener repair for one of the following reasons.
•The batteries in the transmitter may be dead. This is a common issue and absolutely expected. Yet, people do not always realize that this is normal. Often, the first thought that comes to mind is about a serious problem with the garage door when the issue is perhaps as simple as batteries out of juice. Just replace the batteries and your garage door will respond again. It is possible that the transmitter itself is
malfunctioning, in which case you will need a technician. Since many people have more than one
transmitter, this should not be much of a problem but one still has to get the faulty one fixed for
convenience so other members of the family may also have access to the garage door.
If you have a relatively new garage door, then it is likely there is more than one photo eye. Older garage
doors had only one. Hence, if the photo eye was misaligned or there was some issue with the sensor
then the whole door would have been unresponsive. These days one photo eye may have an issue but
you may still take advantage of the other one.
A common problem is misaligned tracks. This is actually one of the simplest issues to identify but also
one of the more complicated to fix. It is best not to try and fix misaligned or unaligned tracks yourself
without any professional experience or proven expertise. You may damage the door. You may injure
yourself and there can be other serious consequences. It is best to hire a technician.
Other common problems blockage or obstacle in the path of the door, broken springs, wrong calibration,
the disconnect switch is turned on, the door is locked manually and broken cables. You will need a
technician to replace broken springs or cables, to get rigid obstacles out of the way and to recalibrate the
door. Call our garage door repair Red Deer specialists today for a FREE quote!
