Garage Door Opener Installation Longmont

Garage Door Opener Installation Longmont

Project Description

Garage Doors 4 U Longmont had a Garage Door Opener installation project in Longmont CO. The homeowner called for a new garage door opener since they needed to update their garage opener. We responded quickly to their request for a garage door repair Longmont as the homeowner was looking for a residential garage door repair company.  We were able to install the garage door opener quickly for the homeowner.

When your garage door opener suddenly stops operating properly, the cause of the problem is usually pretty simple to understand though it is best to contact a garage door opener installation expert to handle these issues.

Three Typical Garage Door Opener Problems 

  • The garage door opens, but the motor keeps running.
  • When this unusual problem occurs, the up-limit switch should be moved away from the motor unit. It's unusual for this issue to appear out of nowhere; if it does, you'll notice it when you first install the garage door opener. It can, however, happen if or when the gears inside the motor unit are stripped, causing the motor to operate without moving the door.

  • The opener is not controlled by a remote or a wall switch.
  • When the garage door does not move when the remote or wall switch is pressed, the power source has almost probably been broken in some way: the most common problem, as with many other issues, is that the motor unit has been unplugged. Begin by checking the outlet where the door opener is plugged in and making sure the cord is fully inserted.

    It's also possible that the circuit breaker, fuse, or GFCI outlet for the door opener has failed or burned out. If the circuit breaker or GFCI continues to trip, it indicates that there is a short circuit somewhere in the system, possibly even in the garage door opener. If the garage door opener's motor has burned out and isn't working at all, this is a problem that will need the services of an expert residential garage door repair technician.

  • The garage door does not respond to the keypad or remote.
  • When a wireless remote control or a keypad mounted on the door stops triggering the opener, you have a few options. First, get closer to the door. It's possible that the antenna within the garage is no longer in range. Modern garage door openers are essentially small radios that operate at 315 MHz, and even a few feet of additional distance can impair the signal. Check that the antenna on the motor unit is pointed downward and is not damaged in any way. If the door opens and closes normally when the hardwired wall switch is used, the battery in the remote control or keypad is most likely dead.

    Change the settings on the keypad or the remote control. If the remote control or keypad loses its programming, the delicate electronics inside may need to be reset. Each garage door opener has a different reprogramming method, so consult the instructions or go online to learn how to do this.

    As you can see, garage door repairs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including garage door opener installation. Understanding the many types of garage door concerns will make communicating these issues with a garage door provider much easier. Remember, you should never attempt to resolve the issue on your own.
