If pressing on your remote control garage door opener yields a door that doesn’t go all the way up every time, you are facing a few potential issues. By focusing on the most common first, you can through a process of elimination determine what your next steps should be.
1. First check to see if the remote control for the garage is working properly or if fresh batteries should be installed. If, after you have put fresh batteries into the remote control, the garage door comes up part way or not all the way up, then you still have an issue.
2. Next check to make sure that the safety eyes or the receivers are lined up properly. These small boxes are mounted on the bottom half of the left and right door tract. One box emits a red light beam and the other receives it. On occasion, the receivers might get bumped, causing the signal to get interrupted and leaving your garage door half way up or down. This problem can be easily remedied by readjusting the receivers so that they line up properly.
If that situation checks out but the garage door continues to run incorrectly or not at all, then the problem most likely is that your springs have broken or the travel switches on the opener motor are expiring. If either situation arises, it’s time to get garage repair in Salt Lake City from the experts who will be able to tell you immediately what the problem is, how it should be addressed, and what the cost to complete the job will be. For most situations, the Torsion Springs or Extension Springs have broken and need replaced or the travel switches have frayed and worn out.
1. Garage doors typically have either Torsion Springs or Extension Springs. Torsion springs are located above your garage door and consist of springs that are slid onto a bar. Extension springs, on the other hand, are found alongside the opening of the door. If only one spring is broken, you should still replace the set knowing that the other spring will soon expire, too.
2. Since the dimensions and weights of garage doors vary considerably, you need the experts at Garage Repair in Salt Lake City to access your situation and to install the right springs. If you rely on anyone to do the job, you could end up doing more harm than good since the installation of the wrong spring could ruin not only your garage door but the whole system. In addition, Garage Repair Salt Lake City installs springs that last for 25,000 cycles (the garage door going up and then down represents one cycle).
3. After installation, the technician will perform a safety inspection to insure that the garage door meets all safety codes to protect you and your loved ones.
4. Finally, all of the work is guaranteed under the warranty.
