Garage Door Opener Repairs

The garage door opener gets a lot of excessive use. There are many different brands, as well as different types of openers. They range from chain drive, screw drive, and belt drive openers. There is also a jack shaft opener that opens the door by turning the torsion tube. This mounts to the wall next to the door, while most openers mount to the ceiling and have a rail that runs from the opener to the wall just above the door. It is important to have an experienced technician to diagnose and repair the various types of openers. Repairs can range from simple adjustments to more complicated repairs. The most common part to fail is the gear and sprocket assembly. If this happens, you will hear the motor running, but the door will not move. This usually occurs on older garage door openers or if a door was too heavy and put under significant stress. Circuit boards are another cause for openers not opening or closing. The receiver can fail and even though the remote is being pressed, nothing happens. Parts such as trolleys, racks, safety eyes, mechanical limits adjustments, limits switches, capacitors and remotes can also go bad.
