How to Cross Check the Garage Door Working First
Use the emergency release cord to observe the movement of your door. Sometimes, a problem with the door movement may be a result of a faulty garage door opener, damaged tracks, broken springs or the rollers, and not the opener. Make sure to check this before you proceed to garage door opener repairs.
- Test the remote and the wall switch: You can check the wall switch by unscrewing one wire and touching the other terminal with it. If it runs, the wall switch needs to be replaced. As for the remote, check the batteries and if they are working well, check whether or not the receiver needs to be replaced.
- Check the safety sensors: The sensors could be misaligned or damaged. If the lights are not on, it is time to replace them, but if they are, you may just need to check the alignment.
- Check the gear: It is possible that the garage door may have stopped moving even when the motor is functioning properly because the main drive gear may have been damaged. You can get this part replaced by calling and placing a service request with us at San Jose Home Garage Doors.
- Safety tip: Most garage door openers are electric, so make sure you unplug the garage door opener to avoid electrocuting yourself during the repairs. Also, do not forget to close the door while repairing the part to ensure that it does not falls on anyone or anything. However, it is always recommended to leave this task to professionals, as they can handle it perfectly.
