What do I do if my garage door isn’t opening?

We tend to forget about our garage doors and the service they provide us, until they stop working! Then there is the scrable to call a professional garage door company to address the issue ASAP.

When your garage door stops working, it can impact your life in a lot of annoying ways. You can’t park your car inside, or your car is stuck inside! In any case, you want to repair it, and fast!

The job of a garage door is simple: open and close safely. They not only provide this service, they also keep your car or other valuables safe. They are also a point of entry for your home, so they help with home security. And they can also affect the temperature in your home if your garage is attacahed.

Here are 4 reasons your garage door isn’t opening and how to fix it:

 

Before you call a professional repair company – do these 2 things.

  1. Try to replace the battery in your remote. Sometimes this is the only fix you need!
  2. Check if the door is plugged in. True story: this happens more than you think! Don’t waste a service call charge if this is the case.

If your garage door opener is plugged in and the batterys are fresh in your remotes, then call a professional immediately. The problem might be with the torsion springs or your cables. If this is the case, the door (if closed) could crash down when trying to open it or damage your door or opener by attempting to open or close on your own.

 

If you feel confident you can handle a basic check, then you can try and lift the door manually. It’s possible the disconnect switch is detached. This switch is what allows you to close and open your door manually if you have a power outtage. Sometimes the switch gets unhooked, so it’s a quick fix.

If you opener runs when you try to open it, but the door doesn’t move – this is generally a spring issue and should be looked at and replaced by a professional. Another indictator this is the case, is if you smell a burning smell. This signals a spring or cable issue.

When is it time to call a professional?

If you’ve troubleshooted all you can and can’t fix it, or don’t feel confident addressing the issue anymore – call a professional garage door repair company. Make sure they are licensed and bonded, and check out their reviews on Yelp or Facebook to make the best choice!

PS Garage Door Miami

Last night my torsion spring broke and left me stuck in the garage. I called a few different places but Perfect Solutions Garage Door was on it right away. I called to get a quote and schedule an appointment, Shawn was at my front door within an hour and a half. Better yet the spring was replaced and the garage door was working perfect again within 30 min. He went above and beyond and tightened the chain and put lube on the rollers. My garage door works better now than it did before!
