Six Common Garage Door Emergencies:

  1. Wall Unit or Remote Doesn’t Work – The garage door remote may need a battery replacement. However, the garage door remote may need to be reprogrammed, the safety sensor could be misaligned, or there could be a mechanical or electrical issue that requires a technician’s attention.
  2. Garage Door Won’t Move – There are several reasons why your garage door won’t open or close. The springs may need to be replaced, the main drive gear could be broken, or trolley carriage could be broken. If your garage door is open and a spring is broken, the heavy door could come crashing down, causing injury – call a professional immediately to repair your garage door.
  3. Garage Door Doesn’t Close All The Way – A problem with the safety sensor is usually the reason a door won’t close all the way. However, faulty gears, misaligned doors, or other mechanical issues could be at play.
  4. Garage Door Grinding Noise – Sometimes a loud grinding noise can be fixed by applying lubricant; however, there could be a bigger problem. The rollers, hinges, or springs may need to be replaced or the doors could be out of alignment.
  5. Garage Door Comes of Track – Usually a door comes off a track because it has been hit, but there can be other issues such as the horizontal track is not aligned with the vertical track or the rollers or lift cables are worn out.
  6. Power Outage – When you are inside your garage:
    • Pull the red emergency cord to release the lever on the trolley carriage.
    • You can then open the garage door manually.
    • Make sure you open it all the way and it is in a stationary position.
    • If the door still won’t open when you pull on the emergency cord, there could be another mechanical issue that will require a service call.
