Resolutions to common garage door problems include:
If 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.
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.
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.
