What is the Garage Door Opener?

The garage door opener is a mechanism that allows you to open and close the door with no manual effort. Regardless of which opener type you use, they all have a garage door motor that guides a trolly. The garage door trolly is the component that makes direct contact with the door and causes it to open and close upon activation. 
Openers tend to have a switch on the wall, but there are alternative ways to operate them. One example is having a garage door remote. The features available to you depend on the garage door installation process.

What are some of the possible garage door issues that you may have to deal with? These are as follows.

The Garage Door Opener Is Not Closing Normally (Sensors)

The photo-eye sensor system, which sits on both sides of the door, uses an invisible electric beam to ensure there is no blockage. When the sensors are misaligned, the blockage reading can get thrown off, which means the closure function gets messed up.

Grinding Noises

Grinding noises can indicate a broken gear, which connects the motor to the belt or chain. When broken, the gears don’t move smoothly, which creates the noise you hear.

The Remote Keypad or Control of the Garage Door Opener is not Responding

When the remote keypad or garage door control stops working, a few things could be the problem. First, the internal wiring or the buttons on the remote could be the problem. If you use a keypad, there could be signal transmission issues. Finally, the wall switch can suffer from wiring and circuit issues as well.

When Should You Replace Your Garage Door Opener?

Sometimes, you need a garage door opener repair just to iron out any kinks you are having. In other cases, a new garage door opener installation may be in order.

The belt-driven alternative works the same way as the chain-driven one, except in this case the trolley is driven by a rubber belt. It makes opening and closing the garage door much quieter, and it's even easier to maintain than chain-driven openers.
