Some of us know the frustration of needing automatic door opener repair suddenly for our garage doors. The good news – it’s a temporary inconvenience and the solution is often an easy fix. Your door opener operates by several components and parts working correctly together. When it fails to function properly, most people assume they need an expensive repair or a replacement. That is usually not the case. Determining the problem is key. The solution could be as simple as:
- Replacing remote batteries
- Ensuring the sensors are not blocked or out of alignment
- Lubricating the tracks and rollers
- Adjusting the setting limits
- Routine maintenance, etc.
Determining whether your automatic door opener needs a repair or a replacement depends on several factors such as:
- Condition of opener
- Age of opener
- Frequency of use
- Frequency of past repairs
- Cost of repair compared to a new opener
In many cases, replacing a part is all that’s needed – it’s more probable than not. For instance, if the opener light does not work and you know it’s not the bulb, it could be the light socket itself. When your remote is not working and you’ve checked the battery, the circuit board may be shot. Lightning is a possible cause of that. If your opener makes a grinding sound, but the door doesn’t open, the main gear drive probably needs to be replaced. That part is the most common to fail on most openers.
