What is the Garage Door Opener?

A garage door opener is an important function that opens and closes your garage door. You use the garage door motor to power the lifting mechanism, which can range from a chain drive to a belt drive. The garage door trolly is what connects the lifting mechanisms with the garage door itself. Normally, you’d control everything with a garage door opener remote. However, you can disconnect the trolley with the emergency release, which lets you manually raise or lower your garage door.

On average, garage doors operate at a rate of 1,500 times each year. What it means is you can expect to get a lot of mileage for your opener. Parts can break down over time due to years of wear and tear. If that happens, you need a proper garage door opener installation.

Our Garage Door Opener Repair Best Practices

When it comes to repairs, our company uses state-of-the-art technology with technique and finesse. We strive for high-quality maintenance, whether it’s repairs or replacements. Our team understands what goes into every garage door opener, so we put our extensive knowledge to good use.

➤ The Garage Door Opener is Not Closing Normally (Sensors):

If your sensors aren’t functioning, we make sure to check the alignment. More often than not, misalignment is a factor in faulty sensors. Since the sensors need to be facing each other correctly, we can adjust both heights. We can also fix the switch operating the sensors.

Before calling us, you can try to check the sensors by yourself, it will only take about a few minutes. Click here for sensor adjustment instructions.

➤ Grinding Noises:

If you hear grinding noises, it might be due to the gears breaking down. These are typically located inside the opener. We look inside to check if your gears are working properly.

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

We do programming for not only your garage door keypad but also garage door remote. Our team of experts will check and see if your garage door opener functions properly.

➤ Opener Reversing Feature Doesn’t Work:

If the reversing feature of your opener doesn’t work, it’s a huge safety concern. Without it, the garage door can potentially fall on you. With a garage door safety check, we can fix your opener reversing feature.

➤ Emergency Release is Pulled Down:

If your garage door doesn’t open, you can use the garage door emergency release. You basically pull down the red cord hanging below the trolley. Doing so lets you manually lift your garage door without using the opener, which is convenient.

Garage Door Opener Repair

You need to consider whether you need a garage door opener repair or a garage door installation. Should you choose to have it repaired, several reasons can justify your decision for an opener repair. Below are some common ones, alongside how you can tell:

  • Broken gear: The door can’t move up or down properly.
  • Faulty motherboard: Your outlet has no power and makes neither sounds nor light.
  • Damaged or missing sensors: There are no lights, and your door refuses to operate.
  • Loose chains: You can hear loud, grinding noises as you open and close the door.
  • Non-functional wall units or remotes: No matter how many times you press the button, nothing seems to work the way it should.

Garage Door Opener Installation

LiftMaster Garage Door Openers

You might prefer to get a new garage door opener installation rather than a simple garage door opener repair. One of the reasons you need an opener installation is due to an old unit. With old units, you’re better off with a replacement since repairs aren’t enough to keep it functioning properly. It’s best to upgrade to a cleaner version of a garage door opener.

If you want to work with A-Team Garage Door Repair, keep in mind there are opener brands we don’t use, which include Genie, Overhead, and Skylink. As a result, it’s best for us to do a completely new installation with our own products from Liftmaster. This also applies to sensors for openers we don’t have, in case you have a home inspection before selling your house.

Types of Garage Door Openers

There are three types of garage door openers to consider. They are chain-driven, belt-driven, and wall-mounted. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, so compare and contrast to see which one is right for you and your household.
