Common Garage Door Opener Issues

    • The Garage Door Opener is Not Closing Normally (Sensors)  If your garage door doesn’t close properly, there may be three possible reasons for this. First, check your door alignment if it’s evenly vertical. If not, this will prevent your door from closing normally. 
      Next, clean and adjust your sensors. This should get rid of any debris that can be read as obstructions and properly position the height of the sensors. Lastly, you might need to adjust the close limit switch on your door opener. 

    • Grinding Noises If your garage door produces annoying grinding noises as it moves, a broken gear on your door opener may be the reason behind this. If the gears are stripped, it may cause the gear’s teeth to slip and bump with the chain as the door moves.
    • The Remote Keypad or Control of the Garage Door Opener is not Responding

      Another common garage door opener issue is when it doesn’t respond to your garage door remote keypad or control. In this case, there may be errors in programming and functionalities of your garage door keypad or remote.

    • Opener Reversing Feature Doesn’t Work

      As mentioned, if you have an opener reversing feature problem, then you might be in a safety risk when using your garage door. Before anything, have a garage door safety check to prevent any accidents. 

    • Emergency Release is Pulled Down

      When you pull down the garage door emergency release, you’re disengaging the opener from your garage door. As a result, your door won’t open by operating your garage door opener. Instead, you’ll only be able to manually move your garage door.

Chain-Drive Garage Door Opener

Chain-Drive openers consist of a chain that moves the trolley (carriage) which connects to a metal bar called J-arm. This bar is then affixed to the garage door. The metal-to-metal contact and vibration may produce disturbing noise, especially if you have a room near your garage. 

Advantages of a Chain-Driven Garage Door Opener

• Cheapest: Chain-driven garage door openers is the least inexpensive type of door opener.

• Heavy-duty: This type of door opener is capable of lifting the heaviest doors. 

• Low-maintenance: They have a longer lifespan than belt chain garage openers with little maintenance.

Belt-Drive Garage Door Opener

As its name implies, a Belt-Driven garage door opener uses a belt instead of a chain to move the trolley. The belt, which may be made of rubber, fiberglass, or polyurethane, allows for a more soundless operation. However, belt-driven openers are more expensive than the chain-driven counterparts.

Advantages of a Belt-Driven Garage Door Opener

• Quiet operation: unlike chain-driven garage door opener, belt-driven openers are quieter and smoother in operation.

• Reliable: belt-driven garage door opener doesn’t require frequent repairs.

Wall Mount Garage Door Opener

Wall Mount garage door opener is also popularly called the Jackshaft garage door opener. Because it’s wall-mounted, this type of opener is ideal if you want to save vertical space in your garage. This type of opener is mainly installed in commercial garage doors and residential high lift garage doors.

Advantages of a Jackshaft Garage Door Opener

Appealing: among the other types, the jackshaft door opener is the most aesthetically pleasing.

Quiet operation: it only produces slightly more noise than belt-driven units. 

Less maintenance: it has a simple design with only a few moving parts, which means that it won’t require much maintenance.
