The motor is a sensitive part of the garage door, and one needs to be aware of when it needs repair or replacement for that matter. In some cases that we will discuss, the only requirement would be an adjustment, and your motor will be up and running. Below we shall discuss some reasons why a motor will fail to work.
It can be blocked from dust, dirt, or any other large object or a person. Always ensure the path is clear and clean thoroughly (the Photo-Eye) to avoid the blockage. It is advisable to check if the cord attached to it is broken occasionally.
This can be caused by a damaged antenna on the motor, possible previous use of the wall switch, and being out of range. Try reprogramming if you are sure the afro mentioned scenarios are not the possible causes.
The disconnection mainly allows the door to be operated manually when there is a power outage. Check to ensure if it is connected back and did not interfere with the motor.
The number of spring cycles is limited and will require replacement when broken. Check for any loose cables as well.
Having a disrupted power source in the connection to your garage door is possible; you can use another electrical device to confirm if that’s the case.
Observe keenly to ascertain where there is a misalignment during the movement of the door through squeaks, friction, and slowed movement. After marking out, the sections make the necessary adjustments.
When the sensitivity limits are set either too high or too low in a newly installed door, the probability it will not work is high. This can also be the case for the old garage door when the changes are made. The setting should be done according to the manufacturer’s manual.
It is very dangerous to personally or engage non-professionals to repair the motor of your garage door. The effects can be felt immediately or with time. That is the very reason we advise soliciting services from professionals like our skilled team from 1800 Garage Door Repair.
