Common Emergency Garage Door Repair Requests

When operating your garage door, the last thing you expect is for it to stop working. If it does, the problem might be minor and can be easily resolved. More severe issues must be dealt with by a professional service technician.

These are some common garage door emergencies you could encounter.

The Garage Door Remote Won’t Open or Close the Door

Your remote’s batteries may need replacing if you’ve tried to operate the door numerous times unsuccessfully. This quick fix is easy to implement. If you’ve replaced the batteries and it’s still not working, check that you’re within range and there’s no obstruction with the door sensor signal. If the issue persists, a garage door technician can help.

The Garage Door Reverses Direction While Closing

The photo eye sensors detect objects while closing to prevent damage or injury to vehicles and people. If they’re blocked by dirt, dust or debris, they mistakenly alert the door of an obstruction, and the door reverses direction. Wipe them clean to ensure they’re not obstructed. 

The Door Is Off-Track or Misaligned

The tracks keep the garage door in place to function efficiently. Various indicators may point to an issue, including:

  • Warped, bent or damaged tracks
  • A visible gap between the track and rollers
  • Slow or staggered opening
  • An inability to open
  • Loud noises while operating

These all have different causes and should be inspected by a professional to assess and repair.

The Door Struggles to Open and Close, Moves Slowly or Jerks

The usual culprit is broken torsion or extension springs. They may be worn out or snapped, causing the garage door to lose tension and feel heavy when lifted manually. Never attempt fixing springs yourself, as it could lead to injury. Call a service technician immediately. 

The Door System Makes Unusual Noises While Operating

Strange sounds occur for various reasons. Identifying them may help determine the source of the problem. For example, you might hear slapping due to loose chains, squeaking and finding caused by loose rollers and rattling and vibrating due to loose bolts and nuts. Broken springs cause a loud popping sound. It’s best for a qualified technician to inspect the noise and fix the issue.
