Project Description

J&M Garage Doors had a garage door repair project in Cheyenne, WY.  The homeowner called for an emergency garage door repair service since their garage door opener chain broke. We responded to their request for garage door repair Cheyenne quickly as the homeowner was looking for a residential garage door repair company.  We were able to make the repairs quickly so that the homeowner could use their garage again.

A garage door opener can be driven by a belt, screw, or chain. They are very sturdy, and there is seldom an issue of breakage during the average lifetime for a garage door opener. A garage door opener can wear quickly if the garage door cables are not set properly or are wearing out. The replacement of the garage door cable is a possible way to solve this issue. Typically, with too much tension during installation, a cable will break as well as when there is a lack of lubrication to avoid rustiness.

Reasons why chains loosen up

Once a gear and sprocket start to break, then the chain begins to loosen quickly. Another cause for this issue is when too much tension is put on the chain while it is being installed. Also, weather changes can be an issue since the temperature can be an issue in areas with extreme weather conditions (going from scorching summers to freezing winters).

A professional garage door repair technician can easily replace the components of a garage door, such as the sprocket assembly and gear (which are located within the garage door opener motor cover). Once the new sprocket and gear are changed, resetting the mechanism’s travel limits and force limits will occur. Don’t forget that the parts can be exposed and broken once the cover is removed, so trusting a garage door professional is a wise choice. It is recommended to check the manufacturer’s warranty to confirm you are covered under their warranty for a specified period of time.

Another issue on how a garage door chain can be loose is when the front sprocket is broken. You can find this part wrapped around by a chain at the end of the opener rail near the garage door opening. Make sure to contact an expert residential garage door repair technician to deal with this issue.

So when do you need a new garage door opener?

There are many signs that your garage door opener needs to be replaced when you examine your garage door. One obvious reason is that you have an old worn-out garage door opener. Also, consider these signs so you are aware when you need a garage door opener chain replacement:

Loud noise - Due to wear and tear over the years, the opener motor will have a hard time pulling the same garage door open. Any loud noise you hear is an alert that something is wrong.

Movement speed is slow - If you open and close your garage door and find out the movement speed is slower than usual, it can be a sign that there is a problem with your opener lifting the door weight.

Door not opening - When you click your garage door remote, and you hear the motor struggling to run, but your door still does not move, then your garage door opener is in trouble. Do not keep trying to open your garage door with the remote; instead, contact a garage door repair company. You can cause further damage to your garage door if you keep on trying to use the broken garage door opener.
