Common Garage Door Problems

If you have a garage with an automatic garage door, you are likely to face some common garage door problems at some point. Here are a few tips from Compass Garage Doors to help you fix most of the issues you’re most likely to face.

Remote doesn’t work

If your Austin garage door opener won’t open the door, you may have a problem with the remote. The first thing you should do is punch in your security code on the keypad and see if that opens the door. If it does, then you know your problem is likely your remote. Usually all you have to do is change the battery. If that doesn’t work, then you may have to get a new remote.

Door won’t close all the way

If your door starts to close, gets most of the way down and then comes back up, you likely have a problem with the sensors at the bottom. Often, the problem is that something, such as debris or a tool, is in the way. Make sure there is nothing in front of the sensors. They also can get knocked out of alignment. If neither of these things seems to be the issue, then you may need garage door repair services.

Busted spring
