Garage Door Opener Repair Longmont

Garage Door Opener Repair Longmont

Project Description

Garage Doors 4 U Longmont had a Garage Door Opener Repair project in Longmont CO.  The homeowner called for a new garage door opener since they needed to fix 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 repair 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 residential garage door repair company to handle these issues.

3 most common garage door opener problems 

  • The opener is not activated by remote control or a wall switch.
  • When the garage door doesn't move at all when the remote or wall switch is pressed, it's almost certain that the power source has been disrupted in some way: the most common problem, as with many other problems, is that the motor unit has been unplugged. Begin by inspecting the outlet where the door opener is connected and ensuring that the cord is fully inserted.

    It's also likely that the door opener circuit breaker, fuse, or GFCI outlet has failed or burned out. If the circuit breaker or GFCI keeps tripping, it means there's a short circuit somewhere in the system, potentially even in the garage door opener. If the garage door opener's motor might have burned out and isn't working at all, then this is a problem that will necessitate a garage door opener repair technician to replace it..

  • Garage Door Isn't Responding to Keypad or Remote
  • When a wireless remote control or mounted keypad stops activating the opener, there are a few options: Get closer to the door. It's conceivable that the antenna inside the garage is out of range. Modern garage door openers are essentially miniature radios that operate at around 315 MHz, and even a few feet of extra distance can degrade the signal. Make that the motor unit's antenna is pointing downward and not damaged in any way. If the door opens and closes normally using the hardwired wall switch, the remote control or keypad's battery is most likely dead.

    Reconfigure the keypad or the remote control. The delicate electronics in the remote control or keypad may need to be reset if they lose their programming. Each garage door opener has a somewhat different technique of reprogramming, so check the instructions or go online to learn how to do this

  • The garage door opens, but the motor continues to run.
  • When this unique problem develops, the up-limit switch should most likely be relocated away from the motor unit. It's rare for this problem to develop out of nowhere; if it does, you'll notice it when you initially install the garage door opener. However, it can happen if or when the gears inside the motor unit have been stripped, causing the motor to run without moving the door.

    As you can see, garage door repairs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including garage door opener repair. 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.
