Project Description

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

Common Causes of Garage Door Opener Malfunction

  • The garage door reverses just before it hits the ground.
  • The following are some of the possible causes of a garage door reversing before it reaches the ground:

    On garage door openers, the closing force—the amount of pressure allowed to descend a door before the motor switches off—is adjusted via an adjustment screw. It is not uncommon for the door to reverse before it reaches the floor, indicating that the close-force setting requires adjustment. The door opener is being fooled into believing the door has reached the floor by the friction of the door rollers within the tracks, and the opener's sensitivity needs to be reduced.

    Damaged or corroded rollers can generate additional friction, fooling the door opener into stopping prematurely. To avoid this issue, keep the rollers in good condition and adequately greased.

  • Immediately upon contact with the ground, the garage door reverses.
  • If the garage door shoots upward as soon as it makes contact with the ground, it could be a close-limit switch issue. Adjust the close-limit adjustment screw on the door opener motor in small increments until the door comes to a complete stop when it touches 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:

  • It's possible that the up-limit switch has to be moved closer to the motor unit. This switch is normally a simple touch-lever positioned near the motor unit at the end of the track; if it is too far away, the motor will stop the door from fully opening.
  • The switch should be moved closer to the motor unit as a solution. This is a somewhat uncommon issue that usually manifests itself shortly after the installation of a new garage door opener. The door may also stop short of fully opening due to intractable or damaged rollers. Inspect and repair any rollers that are damaged.
  • So as you see, garage door repairs can vary, and a trusted garage door repair company such as J&M Garage Doors 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.
