When Should You Replace Your Garage Door Opener

garage door opener

Garage door openers are simple mechanisms that can last decades. If properly taken care of, you could even get up to 20-years out of your garage door opener. Even though they tend to be sturdy, they are prone to damage or aging that may lead to repairs. But when do you know it’s time to seek a replacement? The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair is ready to help you out.

5 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Garage Door Opener

Here are some signs that your garage door opener may need replacing:

1 The Garage Door Opener is Vibrating

Older garage door openers tend to vibrate from time to time. While this may seem harmless, it’s often a sign that there is damage to the motors armatures or shafts. Too much vibrating and it may become loose and fall from it’s mounted point onto your vehicle or worse, you.

2 Garage Door Won’t Close All the Way

If you notice your garage door goes right back up after closing, it could be a sign of garage door opener damage. More often than not, this simply has to do with the sensors not being aligned correctly. However, this could also be a sign of damage to the sensor eye or the sensor itself.

3 Garage Door is Making Loud Noises

A chain drive opener is notorious for being noisy. But if you notice it’s louder than usual, or there’s a new sound emitting from the door, there may be something wrong with the sensor. The older these openers get, the louder and louder they become.

4 Garage Door is Unresponsive

If your garage door is unresponsive or slow to respond and you’ve already cleared the remote of any wrongdoing, it’s time to examine the opener. This could be a sign that it is having issues with its logic board or wiring. While these can be fixed relatively easily, they can also become recurring issues.

5 Your Garage Door Opener is 15+ Years Old

If your garage door opener is 15-years or older it may be time to move on. That is its average lifespan. Don’t be sad though! New garage door opener models are sleek in design, more cost efficient and easier to maintain.

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.
