When Your Garage Door Won’t Close Fully
Everyone experiences those moments when the garage door won’t close. Hopefully, it doesn’t happen in the early years of your garage doors, and the fix is simple enough for you. If this doesn’t occur, you can always call the professionals at Abstract Overhead Door and Fence. Before you do, here are some things you can try to solve the more simple problems.
The Sensor is Blocked
When your garage door opens and closes, it has a sensor to prevent incidents. That sensor stretches across the bottom; if something is blocking it, then your door won’t close properly because it “thinks” something is in the way. Check those sensors. Make sure they’re clean and that nothing is in their way.
Faulty Springs and Cables
Just as springs and cables can break, and cause a door to fall, they can get stuck and prevent a door from coming down as it should, too. When examining this, be extremely cautious. There are plenty of ways to get injured when it comes to springs and cables. In fact, you should call the professionals if you think this is the problem.
Of course, sometimes it’s a simple issue of the remote to your garage. That may be the first thing you want to check. Check the batteries and the connection, and you may need to have it reprogrammed. If you have trouble with this, you may need a professional to help you, since those systems can be very complex.
If you use a keypad, that could also be a source of your problems. If the keypad has broken down, or it has malfunctioned in some way, then your door won’t open or close as it should. When it comes to fixing this, you may need some help. You can try examining your manual first, and reprogramming. If that doesn’t work, you may need to call for service.
These are just a few of the possible issues you could have when your garage door won’t close properly.
