What to Do When Your Garage Door Won’t Close?

Your Neighborhood Garage Door Repair team has put together a list of the most common things to check when your garage door won’t lower. You can check many of the items easily and get them resolved so you can get on with your day.

Garage Door Remote Isn’t Working

A dead battery in the garage door remote is the most frequent cause of a garage door not responding. Try lowering the garage door with the transmitter installed on the wall of your garage. If the door responds to that opener, replace the battery in your remote. Your door should respond with a new battery in place.

Blocked or Misaligned Photo Eye Sensors

Every garage door has photo eye sensors that are a part of your garage doors safety system. The sensors prevent the door from dropping on anyone or anything in its path. These sensors are installed on each of the garage door side rails, about a foot off the ground. The sensors ‘talk’ to each other to prevent the door from dropping on anyone or anything. Some times something has fallen into the path of the sensors. Other times a delivery person may have dropped a package off by the garage door. When the door opened the package fell into the path of the sensors. Once the path of the door is cleared your door should lower.

The photo eye sensors can also get blocked from debris, dirt, and dust. The sensors are close to the ground where leaves, debris, dust or even spider webs can cover the eye sensors. Take a clean, dry cloth to clean off the lens. Use a broom to gently sweep away anything around the sensors.

If there is nothing in the garage doors path, check to see if the sensors are misaligned. When aligned the sensors ‘talking’ to each other will have a green light. If the light is red or amber one of the sensors has gotten misaligned. Loosen the wing nut holding the sensors in place and gently move them until the lights are green again.

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.
