Resolutions to common garage door problems include:

Noisy Doors


noisy garage doorIf your garage door is making sudden and loud noises, then consider it may need to be lubricated.  An easy remedy for a loud door is to spray a lubricant like WD-40 on a variety of garage door parts.

Be sure to put a thin coat on the springs, hinges, rollers and tracks.  You’ll be pleased to see the noise subsides.    

Another reason for a noisy door is a loose connection somewhere.  Try to troubleshoot this by tightening up the screws and bolts of your garage door.

Door Stuck Open or Closed

Occasionally, a garage door will get stuck in either the open or closed position.  Either way, it is usually inconvenient.  A quick solution is to operate the door manually and this is easy to do.

The way to manually handle your door is to try and find the emergency release cord which is usually hanging from the door’s track.  Once you find the cord, pull on it and you’ll be able to open the door by hand.

When you have a door that is hard to open up, you may have springs that are need of replacement.  Check them to see and replace if they are faulty.

Trouble with the Door Closing

Sometimes our customers in Hartford have called to say they have to hold their button down firmly to get their garage door to close.  If the door won’t close all the way, then the safety sensors may be out of alignment.  If you can’t see the LED lights on your sensors than fix them where they are visible.

Door Reversal

A garage door will occasionally reverse itself.  The solution for this is to adjust and change the “close limit” switches that are located near the rear of the door opener unit.

Most likely there will be the words up and down displayed for you to see.  The goal is to adjust and tweak the switch until the door works as it should.

Neighborhood Garage Door Services of Hartford, Connecticut wants to serve your neighborhood and the surrounding community.  We have professional technicians and phone representatives that are available to answer your questions and help you troubleshoot your garage door needs.

If these common garage door tips won’t work for your door’s issue, then we will be happy to provide you with same day service.  Give us a call if you ever need garage door services in the Hartford, Connecticut area.

With summer approaching, leaving car windows and tops down exposes your garage door openers to anyone. Yes, you could tuck it away in a compartment but that isn’t always practical.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
