When your garage door opens and closes much more slowly than when you first bought it, or the reaction time is significantly delayed, you might need a new motor, spring replacements, or a new garage door.
If your garage door is making unusual noises – such as clunking, squeaking, grinding, or rattling – it may be damaged or need to be replaced. Our Torrance garage door repair technicians will evaluate the operational standards of your door to determine if it’s a simple repair or something more.
There are garage doors without keypads. However, if yours does, these can also become faulty. Make sure the batteries are not dead before anything else. You may solve the problem by replacing the batteries and entering the keypad number again.
There may be times when your keypad needs to be reprogrammed. Check your manual for instructions on how to do this on your particular keypad. If you need the original manual, try looking online.
In this case, the antenna is the problem, not the keypad itself. The antenna receives signals from the keypad on the motor. Make sure it is pointing downward. You can call our professional Torrance garage door team to diagnose the problem if you still cannot use the keypad.
Stand inside your garage with the garage door closed. Look for wear or damage on the garage door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, and mounting hardware.
There could be problems if something appears frayed or worn or the door makes a strange sound.
With the door still closed, disconnect it from the automatic opener, then lift the door manually. It should lift smoothly with little resistance and should remain fully open.
If it is difficult to open or does not stay open, the door may be out of balance and should be serviced by a trained service technician.
With the garage door raised, lay a piece of wood (2x thickness) on the floor where the door would touch the base. Close the garage door using the transmitter or wall button on your garage door opener. The door should automatically reverse when it strikes the object.
You should know that testing your door could cause damage if the reverse fails. If the contact reverse does not work, you must use your transmitter to reverse your door. The top and bottom sections of the door may buckle if the opener continues to close the door.
Our trained Torrance garage door repair technician should inspect the door if it does not automatically reverse.
Close the garage door with your door clicker or wall button when the door is fully open. Objects such as broomsticks should break the beam when waved in front of the door’s photo eyes.
If it does not reverse and reopen, remove the broomstick from the path of the closing door (watch your feet! ). Clean the photo eyes with a soft, dry cloth while closing the door. If the photo eyes appear out of alignment, adjust them by hand. If the photo eye test fails, open the door and repeat it. A faulty door should be serviced if it cannot reverse and reopen.
When the door is fully open, press the transmitter or wall button on your garage door opener to close it. Hold the bottom of the door with your hands outstretched and stiff as the door closes. Pull your hands away from the door as soon as possible if it continues to close without reversing. A trained technician should service the door because the closing force is excessive.
