Your garage door opener is a hard working component of your garage door system, and until the day that it finally stops working, it often gives years of trouble-free service.
For those rare times that your garage door opener does fail, here are a few tips to help you troubleshoot any minor problems.
Check the batteries.
Always be sure that you just check the batteries if your garage door opener isn’t working in the proper manner. Even if it works sometimes, it may be the battery that’s really old and is having trouble. You need to have a good set of batteries to replace the old ones as well. Try not to buy low-quality batteries for your garage door opener. We suggest a set of name-brand alkaline long-life batteries. Even though the alkaline batteries may be a bit more expensive initially, their longer life will more than make up for the added cost.
Is it the remote or the wall opener?
You need to think about if your remote opener works or if it’s the wall opener that’s giving you problems. If you are testing this, make sure nobody is near the door at the time you’re pressing buttons because if a spring were to come lose or anything malfunctioned, it could cause injuries. If you find that the door is trying to open but is hesitating, it may not be your opener at all. If you are not able to easily figure out the issue, then it is best to call a professional that can safely and efficiently do the work.
