Does The Door Still Refuse To Move With a Working Remote?
You can determine this by observing that the garage door refuses to work even if you’re using the wall switch. Should this be the case, then you will want to look at the lights. If the lights aren’t on, then your garage door opener is obviously not receiving any electrical power. That may also be a time to consider a Garage Door Replacement Service. But before that, you will want to take a look at the fuse, the GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) or the circuit breaker. That can indicate to you if you have an issue with the electricity.
Once you’ve investigated the door opener’s electricity, take a look at the emergency release chain. The first thing to do is to pull on the chain which will serve to disengage the door’s carriage. At that point, the garage door will be able to function on its own (manually), independent of the opener. Now check the door’s opening and closing ability.
Does The Door Reverse, Once It Hits The Floor, Or Refuses To Close Fully?
This particular problem can sometimes involve a bit of close investigative work with major attention to detail. That’s because the usual cause of this problem is the fact that something is blocking the garage door from closing smoothly. That can be anything from a foreign object or some physical damage to the door that you’re unaware. To determine if this is the cause, you may need to go over the entire door track. Fortunately, you may get a break if the problem can see at the point where the door stops and reverses itself. Even then, there may be more than one problem location that you will want to investigate if fixing the initial problem area/point has been done, and the door still reverses before touching the floor.
These are some of the areas that you will want to investigate before contacting your Local Garage Door Replacement Service to replace your entire garage door. The money that you save can be considerable, and you will also learn a bit more as to how your particular garage door operates. That can help you when it comes to future routine DIY maintenance.
