Do you have any clue on how to fix garage doors? Here you'll discover the best tips.
Keep the push button wall control out of children’s reach
Keep children away from playing or pressing the push button wall control of your garage door. This may damage your door and endanger your children as well. Our specialists advise homeowners to mount the push button wall control system at least 5 feet from the ground. This way, they won’t be able to reach the button easily.
The garage door’s emergency release feature
Every garage door control system has an emergency release feature. This is intended to help you unlock the door in an unlikely event like a power failure or the door is not fully closed. You can refer to the owner’s manual on how to use the emergency release feature.
Realigning your door sensors
One reason why your garage door sensor doesn’t work is because it has been moved away from the line and it won’t detect the other end of the sensor. Carefully move the sensor until the light stops blinking and glows steadily. The solid light indicates that the sensors are working properly. You can contact our garage door repair Wood-Ridge experts to help you fix the problem.
Test the opener sensors every twelve weeks
For this, you will need a solid free-standing object which can block one of the sensors. Open the door fully, place the object in front of one of the sensors, and engage the door with the remote control. It must not move if the sensors work fine. If the door starts going down, it is necessary to have the devices fixed or replaced.
