Project Description

J&M Garage Door Repair had a Garage Door Opener installation project in Cheyenne, WY.  The homeowner called for a garage opener installation since they wanted to update their garage door opener. We responded quickly to their request for a garage door repair Cheyenne as the homeowner was looking for a residential garage door repair company.  We were able to install the garage door opener quickly for the homeowner.

When your garage door opener suddenly stops operating properly, the cause of the problem is usually pretty simple to understand though it is best to contact a residential garage door repair company to handle these issues.

Three Common Causes of Broken Garage Door Opener 

  • Before hitting the ground, the garage door reverses.

These are some  issues that can cause a garage door to reverse before it even reaches the ground:

  • On garage door openers, an adjustment screw controls the closing force or the amount of pressure with which a door is allowed to descend before the motor shuts off. Because the close-force setting needs to be modified, it's typical for the door to reverse before it even touches the floor. The friction of the door rollers within the tracks tricks the door opener into thinking the door has hit the floor, and the opener must be adjusted for lower sensitivity.
  • Extra friction can be created by damaged or corroded rollers, deceiving the door opener into stopping too soon. To avoid this problem, make sure the rollers are in good shape and adequately greased.
  • The garage door immediately returns after hitting the ground.

If the garage door flies upwards as soon as it reaches the ground, it could be a close-limit switch problem. Close the close-limit adjustment screw on the door opener motor in small increments until the door comes to a complete stop when it contacts the floor.

  • The garage door does not fully open.

The following are the most likely causes when the garage door ascends correctly but stops short of fully opening. Garage door opener installation should take place:

  • The up-limit switch may need to be relocated closer to the motor unit. This switch is often a simple touch-lever near the motor unit at the end of the track; if it is too far away, the motor will prevent the door from fully opening.
  • As a remedy, position the switch closer to the motor unit. This is a somewhat unusual problem that usually appears shortly after the installation of a new garage door opener. Due to obstinate or damaged rollers, the door may also stop short of fully opening. Inspect and repair any broken rollers.

So as you see, garage door repairs can vary, and a trusted garage door repair company such as J&M Garage Door Repair can be relied upon to handle any garage door problems you encounter.

Learning the different types of garage door problems will make it less complicated for you to relay these issues to a garage door company.
