Common Garage Door Problems
When the transmitter has issues, the garage door won’t open when you press your remote control.
This may be due to an antenna problem or the transmitter itself, which involves the batteries.
The transmitter may have problems receiving signal.
Depending on its surroundings, the transmitters’ receivers may be receiving mixed signals.
That means that there are devices with the same frequency causing it to open or close.
That or there are devices that emit frequency causing it to go haywire.
If that is the case, then the best thing to do is first, diagnose the problem.
For these kinds of problems, the best thing to do is call a professional.
It involves wires, antennas, the logic board, and a couple variables that may not be easy to understand for a homeowner.
If it is the battery, then the simple fix is to replace the transmitter’s batteries.
Not just one, but all of the batteries.
The reason being that all of the batteries were placed on the same date and all of it are probably close to drained.
However, if the draining is causing the transmitter’s capability to draw energy to deteriorate, a professional will assess the root cause of the issue and fix it.
Broken Torsion Spring
The torsion spring is one of the two springs that enables you to open your garage door.
When you open your door and it doesn’t close or you feel a bit of resistance as you try to, then the problem may be your torsion spring.
The torsion spring is a spring that twists and coils around a torsion shaft as the door opens and close.
Once the torsion spring wears off or breaks, it is a safety hazard and you should stop operating your garage door completely.
The torsion spring is not a good home tune-up project that we encourage due to the complexity of its reparation.
Mishandling the torsion spring can lead to disaster, with your door collapsing to the ground and crushing anything beneath it.
The torsion spring cannot be repaired.
It can only be replaced.
Both sides have to be replaced, or else, the tension will be uneven, causing a cycle of broken torsion springs.
Door Limit Settings
When the door does not open and close properly, the problem may be due to your door limit settings.
The settings may be outdated, possibly knocked off by the opener, or is not set properly.
A professional will have to run a diagnostic test to see which one set off the door limit settings to malfunction.
Depending on the logic board, if it is outdated, then it might need replacement.
However, if it is not set properly, the only thing to do is to set things manually.
If the safety sensors are flashings, then it is best not to touch the garage door.
Instead, leave the door on manual mode, switching the emergency latch on.
It is a tedious and slow process that we often advise to not be handled, especially when you’re in a rush.
