What Causes My Garage Door to Stop Working?

There are a lot of reasons that can cause your garage door opener to stop working. The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair has a few things you can try to figure out what’s going on. Also, we’re happy to come out and look at your opener and give you a solution if you need us to troubleshoot.

The Remote Isn’t Working

If you press the button on your remote and the opener doesn’t work, but it works when you press the wall mount, then it is likely your remote. Try changing the batteries in the remote to see if that’s the problem. Otherwise, you may need to pair the remote and opener to each other.

In order to pair the two, you will need to take the batteries out of the remote and unplug the opener for 30 seconds. Then reconnect the power sources to the two and it should pair to one another.

The Opener Needs a New Circuit Board

After you check the power supply on the opener and remote, but it still isn’t working, check to see if you’ve tripped a breaker. If it is obvious that the opener has a reliable power supply, it could mean that it needs a new circuit board.

Our professional team can tell you whether or not you need a new opener or if the circuit board can be replaced. We’ll give you the guidance you need to make a good decision.

The Door is Disconnected From The Trolley

Press the button on your remote or the wall mount and listen to the opener. If you hear it running, but the door is not working, that means it is disconnected from the trolley. When you pull the emergency release cord, it disconnects the two. It should automatically reconnect after you hit the power button one time. Once the trolley goes to the end of the track, it is supposed to pick the door back up. Hit the button again and see if it opens the door.

The Door Opens and Closes But Not All of The Way

Maybe your door is opening and closing, but there is a gap. If that’s the case, the opener needs to be adjusted. There are two dials or knobs that are located on the side of the opener. One of the controls tells the door how far to open and the other controls the door when it closes.

When you are making adjustments to the opener, you need to do a little at a time. A quarter of a turn is equal to a few inches. Make small adjustments and then check to see how much it affects the door.

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.
