Garage Door Opener Repairs

Garage Door Opener Repairs​

Garage door openers are essential parts of our homes. Not only do they provide security and convenience, but they also add to the overall appearance of our homes. That’s why it’s important to ensure that your garage door opener is in good condition and functioning correctly. If you have problems with your garage door opener, don’t worry – we can help! This blog post will discuss some common issues with garage door openers and how to fix them.

What are Garage Door Openers?

A garage door opener is a motorized device used to open and close garage doors. Most garage door openers are controlled by remote control, but some are operated by a keypad or smartphone app. Garage door openers make it easy to get in and out of your garage, even if you don’t have a key.

You get two main types of garage door openers: chain-driven and belt-driven. Chain-driven openers use a metal chain to lift the garage door, while belt-driven openers use a rubber belt. Belt-driven openers are typically quieter than chain-driven openers but are also more expensive. No matter what type of opener you have, keeping it in good working condition is essential. If your opener is not working correctly, it could cause severe damage to your garage door.

 

What are the Benefits of a Working Garage Door Opener?

There are many benefits to having a working garage door opener. First, it is much more convenient than manually opening and closing your garage door. A functional garage door opener will also make it easier to get in and out of your garage, especially if you have a heavy door. Additionally, a working opener will help to keep your garage cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter by sealing the space between the door and the ground. Finally, a properly functioning garage door opener can help to deter burglars and keep your home safe.

Also, if your opener is not working properly, it could cause serious damage to your garage door. For example, if the opener cannot lift the door, it could strain the springs and cause them to break. Additionally, an opener that is not functioning correctly could cause the door to come crashing down, seriously injuring anyone in the way.

What are the Most Common Garage Door Opener Problems?

Opener Failure

There are a few different problems that can occur with garage door openers. One of the most common problems is when the opener fails to open or close the door. This can be caused by several different things, such as a broken chain or belt, a stripped gear, or a problem with the motor. 

Noise

A common problem is when the opener makes a lot of noise. This can be caused by loose parts, worn out gears, or dirty chains. If your opener is making noise, don’t hesitate to give us a call so we can take a look. We may be able to fix the problem without having to replace the entire opener. First, we will diagnose the problem and then provide you with a free estimate. Afterward, we will get to work fixing the problem so you can have a quiet and working opener again.

Remote Issues

The garage door opener remote can stop working for a variety of reasons. Anything from dead batteries, interference from other electronic devices, or a problem with the receiver. If your remote stopped working, we recommend checking the batteries first. If that doesn’t solve the problem, give us a call and we will troubleshoot the issue for you.

Opening malfunction

Finally, one of the less common problems that can occur is when the garage door opener starts to work on its own. This is usually caused by a short in the wiring or a problem with the sensors. If this happens, it is important to disconnect the opener from the power source right away. Then, give us a call so we can come out and take a look. Right Choice Doors has the experience and expertise to fix any garage door opener problem, no matter how big or small.

If you are having any problems with your garage door opener, Right Choice Doors is here to help. Whether you need a repair, replacement, or just some general maintenance, we are the company to call. We have years of experience and are experts in all types of garage door opener repairs.

 

The process of Replacing Your Garage Door Opener

If your garage door opener is not working properly, you may need to replace it. Replacing your garage door opener is a relatively simple process, but it is important to follow the instructions carefully so that you do not damage your door or injure yourself.

 

What we do first is take the measurements of your garage door. We need to know the width, height, and thickness of your door so that we can order the correct size opener for you. Once we have the opener, we will install it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Our garage door broke and my husband tried to DIY it so it would close. It ended up doing more damage than good but luckily I asked our neighborhood Facebook page of who to call and hands down they led me to Kyle with Right Choice Doors. Not only did he respond quickly, but he came out the very next day. Even offered to come out that night! He help fix it enough to get my car out then fit me in to replace the whole door and mechanisms the day after! He was very professional and very knowledgeable! He's one of the friendliest service people I've every met! Thanks Kyle! We'll definitely call you for any future garage door needs!

Right Choice Doors responds quickly, knows what they are doing, and provides quality craftmanship - even when working on doors and systems that they did not install. About 12 years ago, the springs broke on the garage door of my home. I had another company replace the spring, and paid extra for "..oversized springs that would last forever". But these replacement springs broke after just 12 years. This time, I contacted Right Choice Doors, and they quickly responded. Kyle (from Right Choice Doors) examined my door, springs, and the rest of door system. He explained to me that the replacement spring diameter was too small, and that the springs had been overtightened to have enough tension - which had caused the premature failure. Kyle took the time to select the correct diameter of spring and also examined the overall condition of the door and tracks. He observed issues with some of the rollers and replaced them; he also helped straighten and align the tracks (which had gotten bent over the years). One of the final touches that I liked was when Kyle had mostly finished but the door was still disconnected from the motor, that he used just 2 fingers to lift the door to verify that everything was properly balanced and would not overload the motor when it was connected.

Kyle came out to fix my garage door sensors. They were not working properly and making it so my garage door would not close when the sun would shine on them. He was so kind and friendly and reasonably priced! He went above and beyond fixing prior mistakes made (by Advanced Door). I will be recommending Right Choice Doors to all of my family and friends!
